Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

A couple of years ago I started trying new vegetables, partly because my daughter (who is all grown up) introduced most of them to me. Just to name a few; peas, asparagus and brussel sprouts. Oh boy, I definitely didn’t like brussel sprouts when I was growing up. I remember my mom making them (boiled…

Broccoli Rabe with Italian Sausage

My sister-in-law got me hooked on broccoli rabe. She would make broccoli rabe with garlic and oil at Thanksgiving. This could be a meal in itself, cooked with Italian sausage and chicken stock. She would make it so much that I never thought to even ask her for the recipe. When I finally did ask…

Caesar Salad Dressing

Tonight on my live facebook feed I made a steak tip caesar salad – this is something my husband and I like to order form one of our local restaurants on the weekend. I figured, why not make it ourselves this time. I prepped the romaine lettuce ahead of time. Someone once mentioned to me…

Make ahead Egg Pockets

This recipe was inspired by a KETO recipe I tried a while back when I started KETO. The KETO recipe had cheese and sausage, no vegetables, and was baked instead of microwaved. One thing about cooking, is that you can alter the recipe and experiment with your own tools. You don’t have to stick to…

Happen Upons

Saturday, February 15, 2020, I decided to take a trip to Roslindale – after deciding to drop my daughter at a wine class, I decided to stay in town and experience a neighborhood I wasn’t familiar with. All I had to do is check my phone and ask for “farmer’s markets in the area.” There…

Rotisserie Chicken Soup with Italian Meatballs

This recipe is for someone who has some time to spend. Even though it’s cooked from a rotisserie chicken, there are a few steps to making this pot of goodness. My favorite time to make soup is the winter months. In addition to using an already cooked chicken, I make little Italian meatballs (a twist…

Avocado & Egg

Avocado (1/2 small) and one egg, mixed with avocado mayo, topped with flax, chia, and toasted sesame seeds. Flavors just salt and pepper. Additions, strawberries, sprouted seed crackers and walnuts.

Salmon with guacamole w/walnuts and spring salad

I went up to New Hampshire last weekend for a pizza party. I told my sister-in-law that I wasn’t eating bread. When I showed up she took salmon out of the oven. She didn’t know I didn’t like salmon! Well, I told her I would try it, and I did. It was fantastic. Not just…

Toasted Honey Pecans/Arugula Salad

I got a jar!  I got a jar of honey and I am so excited! My friend Ellen is a keeper of bees and makes honey every year and I am one of the lucky ones to reap some of the rewards.  She also gave me this mug from when she traveled to Michigan.  I…
