Mediterranean inspired stuffed tomatoes are the perfect solution to a meatless Monday. My moms tomato garden was amazing this year. Her garden yielded tons of tomatoes and eggplants for that matter. We canned the tomatoes, used them Caprese salads, and anything else we could think of! These stuffed tomatoes are filling and flavorful. The cous […]

Roasted baby potatoes are one of my go-t0 side dishes. Most of them time I like them to swim in garlic, herbs, and olive oil. This combination is a no-fail and seems to fit in with most meals I make. However, as I was making a pork loin one day I couldn’t help but long […]

When I roast any kind of vegetable my go to is always salt, pepper, olive oil, and garlic. It is a combination that really is fail proof! Sometimes I will splash in some white wine or some rosemary depending upon what it is I am roasting. I was craving something a little bit different and […]

Tossed with dried cranberries and carrots, this salad is as gorgeous as it is tasty.  The dressing has a bit of sweetness from the maple syrup and just the right amount of bite from the vinegar. Having bread in a salad […]

I feel like I am thinking of what to bring to Thanksgiving all year round but for most people the panic usually sets in November 1st. There are many different ways to cook a turkey, and the variations on side dishes are […]
