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.
If you’ve been following me a while you know how much I love vegetables—with asparagus and green beans being two of my favorites. That’s why I love this Asparagus and Green Bean Salad recipe SO MUCH!
Served chilled, this is the perfect, make-ahead salad for a brunch, picnic, or dinner. And although it looks like it takes a lot of time to make, it can be whipped up in less than 20 minutes.
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!
And although this Creamy Dill Dressing is absolutely perfect for salads, don’t stop there. Instead, use it to dress up fish, chicken, or your favorite veggies. Yes, it’s so good you’ll definitely want to lick your plate! 🙂 (more…)

True to form, my first changes to the recipe were all about making it a little healthier to eat and easier to prepare! How? Here’s what I did: (more…)
I love comfort foods like Chicken Pot Pie. Unfortunately, most of the pre-packaged/frozen versions contain some not-s0-good ingredients and additives—despite what their advertising might say! So what’s my answer? My BEST Homemade Chicken Pot Pie Recipe Ever!
Made with 100% real ingredients like my delicious whole wheat pie crust, this Chicken Pot Pie recipe comes together really easily. And since it’s filled with lots of veggies like peas, carrots, celery, and onions, you don’t need any vegetable side dishes with it. That said, I love to serve it with a side salad like my Orange Spinach Salad with Toasted Almonds. (more…)
