Quesadilla Casserole

This is currently on the “to do” list.

Cast-iron Roasted Potatoes

I added in some brats for a full one-dish meal. You can also make it on the grill, which makes it awesome for the summertime.

Creamy Spaghetti Primavera

One of my favorite Rachael Ray recipes.

Lentil-Chickpea Chili

A vegetarian twist on chili.

Veggie Quesadilla

In a quest to prove veggies do not have to be healthy, I present to you The Veggie Quesadilla.

Creamy Spinach Pasta

Tonight we had a change of plans for dinner and I was looking for a recipe I could make last-minute, with things I had on-hand. The alternative was leftovers, another peanut butter sandwich or going out to buy something. This recipe turned out well enough that I feel it was a win. I guess in the spirit of full-disclosure, I should also tell you that Logan, after a very dramatic (I’m talking serious Academy Award potential here) tasting of green spinach, declared “Baby not like,” and opted for some leftover mac & cheese instead.

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Shepherd’s Pie

I think its happened more than once. My sister will be attending or hosting an event where vegetarians and sometimes even vegans will be hanging around and she wants to prepare a dish that will appeal to them. And she will also be looking for something more interesting than cut-up sticks of carrots. So she asks me. I have no idea. My salads aren’t even vegetarian-friendly. But I came across this recipe the other day for “Sweet Potato and Chickpea Shepherd’s Pie” and thought of her and her vegetarian friends. I even went so far as to imagine replacing the small amount of butter and sour cream in the recipe to make her vegan friend happy too. Woo. That was a lot of work. There is no way I have enough energy left to actually make this now, so you try it and let me know how it is.

Green Bean Casserole

A classic Thanksgiving side dish.
