Zucchini and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

I love to spend time in the garden.  At first, it is kind of overwhelming with the constant weeding.  But, before you know it, you start to have a harvest of sorts.  Lettuce and peas comes first, followed by tomatoes and zucchini.  Now with zucchini, it is kind of a love/hate relationship.  Have you ever had that with your veggies?    I know, kind of odd.  Let me explain...you happily plant your zucchini and there are sprouts that grow larger and begin to creep....more

Roasted Zucchini & Corn Salsa

We had friends bring us dinner a few days ago. Everyone keeps telling me to relax and just enjoy my time since pretty soon Paul will be back to work and I will then be running after the kids trying to figure out which way is up and which way is down. The joys of motherhood, right? ...more

What better way to enjoy a gluten free baguette than by making bruschetta with it ? The baguette was courtesy of Sweet Christine's Gluten Free Bakery, and it was nothing short of delicious.

Easy, Elegant Appetizer: Caprese Stacks With Prosciutto

Recently, my husband and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary. We dined out one evening while we were recently in Florida and my husband asked the chef to create a new appetizer by adding some pan-seared prosciutto to a tomato mozzarella salad they had on the menu. He said it was fabulous and asked me to replicate the recipe again when we got home. Since our actual anniversary was last Tuesday, I decided that since we would be eating dinner at home that evening, I would make these Caprese Stacks with Pan-Seared Prosciutto to surprise  him. ...more
Thank you The Dinner Daily. The prosciutto really crisps up nice and adds a wonderful flavor to ...more

Avocado & Lime Recipe

I've always loved guacamole, but I never realized how delicious an avocado could be on its own until I cut out processed and refined foods. My tastebuds have since been revitalized and reawakened as I continue to discover simple, delicious pairings with few ingredients. With my hectic schedule, there are days I don't get to eat lunch! I crave healthy fats to feel full and balanced so I turn to avocados, which that taste really, really ridiculously good. Pair that with my favorite flavor - citrus -  for a fabulous mini-meal comprised of two superfoods....more

Chicken-Apple links with Glaze

I'm always looking for something new that is appetizing that everyone in my house can agree on. Now you wouldn't think this wouldn't be a difficult task since there is only 3 of us, and one of those is not usually me, but picky is picky.  I bought some Chicken-Apple mini links at the store yesterday, and was in search of a sauce that would compliment these little yummies, and came across this recipe from the noblepig.com. I'm hoping for a substitution for the old time favorite crockpot mini smokies bathed in bbq sauce, now I'm not knocking these, just think it's time for a chance....more
