This summer I entered a contest and won a box full of goodies from Bob’s Red Mill. I don’t normally enter for these types of random drawings but Bob’s Red Mill products are so good that I couldn’t pass it up. I was so glad to have won some cool products.
Vegetarian Rice A Roni
I have been writing and testing quick and easy side dishes for my website and my YouTube channel. Quick and easy means these recipes have a small list of ingredients and they take less than 20 minutes to cook.
My Mom’s Lentils with Potatoes
As a kid I ate lentils everyday and never got tired of them because my mom was good with many different recipes. Lentils are nutritious, cheap and filling and I want to share a favorite recipe with you today.
Tortellini with Creamy Tomato Sauce
My husband and son love a good pasta dish with tomato sauce. Recently I went to our local grocery store and saw refrigerated cheese tortellini on sale, so I picked up a couple of packages. What made me excited is that this takes only 3 minutes to cook.
Lentils with Butternut Squash

I’ve tried numerous attempts at making sauces that enhance the flavor of tacos. After researching many sites and books,…
Cream of Cauliflower Soup
When I grew up there was a different set of vegetables and fruits for each season. A favorite season of mine was when the cauliflower were ready. We ate it in many different ways.
