Zoodles have been popping up all over the internet and food blogs for a little while now, and I was dying to get something that would turn my zucchini into dang noodles! All the recipes look amazing! (Remember Kadee's Pad Thai Zoodles?) Once my dear friend heard I was dying to try zoodles she invited me over for lunch and made pesto zoodles. They were so good. I left dreaming of making my own pesto zoodles, with maybe some tomatoes,fresh mozzarella and fresh basil. I decided it was worth . . .
Rumbi Island Grill was one of my favorite places to go in college. They made this amazing teriyaki rice bowl that I loved to get. Half steak, half grilled chicken, lots of fresh veggies, ride and beans. They had a teriyaki sauce that knocked it all out of the park. We don't lived by any of these restaurants anymore, so we often recreate this amazing teriyaki rice bowl at home. How to Make Teriyaki Rice Bowls I start by preparing my rice- it takes the longest to cook.After you have started . . .
Do you love pizza but hate the carbs? For years I told myself I didn't like pizza just to avoid eating that high-fat, high-calorie, high-carb, oh-so-divine dish. I have a solution. If you want a little healthier approach try out this delicious cauliflower pizza crust! A great alternative that will nix that carbs! . . .

There can never be too many varieties of lasagna, right? This is one that my mom often made for us growing up. She is a big veggie lover and advocate of teaching children to love veggies. So we always had veggies for dinner- always. She did such a great job passing that love of healthy vegetables on to us kids. All 5 of us kids choose to eat them as adults. That's a pretty good success rate right? She also grows her own garden each year, and this time of year her squash is going crazy! She is . . .
The HOLLAdays are here! Which means plenty of vintage recipes from our mommas and grandmommas, written in cursive on grease-stained old-school recipe cards. I've given the classic green bean casserole a facelift. No more cream-of-something soup. No more onion-flavored fried flour from a can. We've got fresh beans. Herbs abounding. Crispy onion strings. It's just perfect. Saute some garlic, onion, and mushrooms, then whisk in some flour to make a roux. Slowly add half-and-half for your rich, . . .
Tian? What on earth is a tian? WELL it is french. (that makes it much more attractive already right?) First, it is the dish/pan that the french used to cook and serve from and it is also the dish prepared in it. Usually its a vegetable type dish, there can be any form of squash, eggplants, onion and my version- a sweet potato tian. With such great vegetables, and a creamy custard, it filling and satisfying just as the entree itself. Take your veggies and slice them all equally thin, . . .
IIIIIIIIII know right? beets? beets are supa freaky. They are all this translucent purple jelly lookin' thingy....that I always wanted to gag when the lunch lady served it on my nicely divided plate in grade school. I don't think I could even ever bring myself to touch a beat let alone get close enough to smell it...or taste it. But now I am reformed, and will eat a beet! Yes! Sam I am, I will eat a beet. I will eat in a box, and with a fox, and only if it is fresh. Don't try to . . .
Before I move on to this post. Let us take a moment of silence in honor of this pan. about 2 weeks ago it was lost. Along with allllll my other "blogging" dishes, and regular ol' dishes, and fancy dishes in an earthquake. It wasn't the largest of earthquakes, it just happened to be horrible in my house. My area, due to a combination of geological situations got the brunt of the shaking and quaking. You can see the some of the dishes broken here, specifically...if you look by the rug you will see . . .
Just yesterday my mom, sister, sister-in-law and I were texting about Easter dinner coming up. We had ham last month for a get-together, and we will also be celebrating three birthdays so my mom suggested we do some yummy ribs instead of the traditional ham. After much discussion that would only interest women of the cooking kind, my sister-in-law finally piped up: "Sooooo......we're not doing ham?" Preach sister, preach. Sometimes you just need a little tradition. This is a twist . . .
