I’ve heard it so many times. “I’d cook vegetables more often, but they’re such a hassle to make” or “my family won’t like them.” Well, I’m here to disprove those compaints once and for all with my Roasted Asparagus with Mushrooms and Tomatoes recipe. 🙂
And before you even think of uttering “but my son/daughter/husband doesn’t like tomatoes or mushrooms” objection, don’t worry … the tomatoes and mushrooms are super easy to sort out so you can give more of them to those of us who LOVE THEM! Or, if you’re in a family of mushroom or tomato-haters, feel free to just leave one or both out.
It’s no secret—I love salads! But what makes a good salad great are fresh veggies and an amazing salad dressing like this Creamy Dill Dressing with Feta!

My whole family lovespasta, so I’m always on the lookout for a new pasta creation to try out at home. I recently was out to dinner and tried a bite (or two) of a friend’s Gorgonzola Pasta dish.

Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie TV Commercial
Here’s a full script of Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie advertisement:
Marie believes that her chicken pot pie gives you the perfect recipe for catching up with family. So she takes the time to prepare a golden flaky crust made from scratch and mixes crisp vegetables with all white meat and bakes it to perfection. Because Marie Callender knows that making the perfect dinner isn’t as easy as pie, but finding someone to enjoy it sure is. Marie Callender’s—It’s time to savor! And now there’s even more to savor with family sized pot pies.
What so wrong with this ad?
The line that really gets under my skin is:
