Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad

When I spotted this Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad on Avocado Pesto, my first thought was "Yum!" followed immediately by "Why didn't I think of this combination?" I love every single ingredient in this vegan and gluten-free salad, especially the use of strong seasonings like ground cumin, lemon, parsley, and red pepper flakes. If I were still teaching school, this is exactly the type of Meatless Monday dish I'd make for Sunday dinner, and take the leftovers to work the next day for a no-heat lunch. ...more

Roasted Tomato Soup

Recently I received over two bushels of tomatoes from my aunt’s garden. I took a stab at canning and dwindled down the lot by over half with tomato sauce alone. I quartered and froze a number of them as well. A big bowel of Bruchetta, a few sandwiches and salads later… I still have tomatoes coming out of my ears....more

Sweet Peach Bread

YOU GUYS. I just came up with something brilliant. You know how you can substitute apple sauce for oil when baking to reduce the fat? The apple sauce keeps your baked goods moist, and can be used in cakes and breads, such as banana bread. Well, WHY NOT USE PUREED PEACHES instead of apple sauce?! And why not make PEACH BREAD instead of banana bread?...more
