Bruschetta Melts

One of my favorite foods is bruschetta. Sometimes on a Friday or Sunday evening, instead of making dinner, we choose to just have a plate of bruschetta. When I saw this in a Taste of Home magazine from 2015 (ok, I have been kinda busy and am just sitting down to go through some old … Continue reading

Spiraled Zucchini

When we arrived in Texas on our trip back 2 weeks ago, my sister-in-law welcomed us there with a veggie meal, which I had requested. She makes the best veggies and after two days of Mexican food on the road, we were more than ready to see something green on our plates besides green chiles. … Continue reading

Zucchini A La Meatless

I know, that is a corny name, but just couldn’t help myself today. This past weekend we had two different sets of friends from California over for dinner as they were passing through town. It was not only great to see them, but it allowed me to cook for more than two, which just thrilled … Continue reading

Butternut Squash & Spinach Lasagna

While on the road the past 3 weeks going between California and Arizona, we discovered quite a few mom & pop joints (and yes they were joints, as they are the type of places that you would probably drive right past, but being married to Mr. Adventure, we usually don’t just drive by, we stop … Continue reading

Cornbread Stuffed Tomatoes

We picked up a few tomatoes yesterday that had the most delicious flavor. As much as I love Fall, I will miss the tomatoes that we have in the summer. This recipe is a great way to enjoy the last tomatoes of summer. 4 ripe tomatoes 2 cups crumbled cornbread 1/2 cup mayo 4-6 slices … Continue reading
