Cheesy Baked Pasta
I don’t make that many pasta dishes at our house. I grew up eating rice at most meals so when I think about dinner I cook things that pares well with rice.
Cream of Tomato Soup (Vegan)
In early summer I bought several tomato plants from our local nursery. I had been hoping to have a variety of different types of tomatoes to enjoy through out the summer.
Zucchini and Cheddar Cheese Biscuits
We have a fairly big garden and I always plant too many zucchini. Even if I give away many of the zucchini I still need to find dishes to use up all the rest that I have. Today I’m making a zucchini cheddar biscuit that I think is pretty unique.
Mixed Berry Coffee Cake
I have been very happy this summer with my garden. It’s been wonderful to get out in the morning to pick berries. We have several wild blackberry bushes that are producing a lot of big berries.

Sautéed Zucchini and Tomatoes
Last year I picked out an unusual herb plant from our local nursery. The name of the plant is epazote and it’s a perennial aromatic herb used in cooking. Both the fresh leaves and tender stems are used in soups, stews, making teas, among other things. Check out the link above for more information!

Pan Fried Pork Chops with Sage Gravy
