Baked Colcannon (Mashed Potatoes & Kale)

The St. Patrick’s Day theme continues with my delectable version of Irish Colcannon. Colcannon is traditionally made with mashed potatoes and cabbage but I decided to try curly kale which turned out fabulous. Being a diabetic, I usually eat pretty low carb and I rarely eat potatoes so I’m always looking for a reason to […]

However, I tripped across this recipe with whole roasted bananas and I just had to give […]

Caprese Salad with Kumato and Basil Vinaigrette

When I was walking through the produce section, this morning, I saw these brown tomatoes called Kumato. Honestly, I’d never heard of brown tomatoes before or Kumato’s so I just had to buy some to see what all the fuss was about. The package said simply unique BROWN tomato so I had no idea what […]

Orange Applesauce Date Nut Cake

Today, I wanted to share another vegan dessert that I recently tried and loved. This cake is so moist and sweet that the hubs even liked it, too. In fact, I didn’t even tell him that this could be good for him because it might have tainted his opinion. Honestly, I don’t know if I […]

Lime Cilantro Hummus

With the Super Bowl coming up, my head has been in the “small bites” game and all I can think about is snack food. Although, I’ve never been much of a cilantro fan, I needed some for a couple of recipes so I reluctantly made my purchase. I’m so glad that I did because the […]

As I mentioned, yesterday, I’m in a “small bites” state of mind. I don’t watch much football but I always watch the super bowl with the hubs. He gets to watch the game, I get to watch the commercials and we both get to have some great food. Since the hubs and I are putting […]

Chunky Borscht

Borscht is a soup that’s prepared mainly of beets. Being that I love beets, I’m not certain why I’ve never tried this dish before. Such a humble, unassuming bowl of goodness and I can’t stop eating it. Beet soup has its roots in Russia and other Eastern European communities and was typically served in poorer […]
