Fresh Tomato Soup

We’ve now pulled the tomato plants in the garden. Frost set in last night, and we didn’t want to bother with covering them to prevent them from freezing. But, we did get our fair share of tomatoes from them before pulling them. This recipe is one of the examples of what we’ve done with them. […]

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

This fresh salsa is so delicious, and so simple to make too. I’ve made it 4 times already, and loved it each and every time! The mango adds a nice sweet element, that offsets the heat of the jalapeno pepper perfectly. The lime juice in the dressing adds a nice tang as well. All in […]

Homemade Relish

Last year I had so many veggies coming out of the garden, I started to look for new recipes to use them all up. I’d never made my own relish before, but we liked the sweet relish that my MIL had given us the year before. So, after an email or two, I had her […]

Flavorful Sugar Snap Peas

I love fresh peas from the garden, and sugar snap peas are no exception. They really can’t get any easier, as they are peas that you don’t have to shell, you eat the shell with the peas. Perfect! My sister-in-law gave us these sugar snap peas fresh from her garden, and we had them for […]

Herbed Corn on the Cob Grilled in Foil

Mmm…fresh corn on the cob. What a handy way to eat corn. It’s like God put it on a stick for us, and we all know how much fun food is to eat that comes on a stick (like Popsicle and corn dogs, for example). Today I saw a road-side stand selling fresh corn on […]

Sweet Spinach Salad

It’s summer here. In summer it’s great to be able to throw together a salad, top it with some grilled meat & have that as your main course. They are great because they can be made ahead and transported to picnics or barbecues too. There is so much fresh fruit & vegetables available right now, […]

Slow Cooker Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I really love a good baked potato when I have a BBQ. However, more often than not, I forget to start the potatoes early enough. Why is it that barbecued meat takes minutes (usually), and the potatoes to go with the meat, take an hour? Instead of doing the potatoes on the grill, I usually […]

Deep Fried Home-Fries

Since going on a gluten free diet, I have realized just where gluten is all present. A lot of the fries that are fried in restaurants are deep fried in large deep fryers that also fry other breaded items, like chicken fingers and fish sticks. Those items contain gluten, which is then transfered to the […]
