Yikes is right! Isn’t that just lovely?! Actually to me it is. And I promise it isn’t my newest casserole all ready to eat for dinner! This is a picture of my kitchen compost. And why exactly would that picture be lovely to me, you may ask? Because it shows, loosely, how many vegetables have made it into… Continue reading Yikes! What is THAT!
Last week I posted one of our favorite light summer meals. I got it several years ago from another blog and use it frequently during those hot months. It’s versatile in the veggie choice, reheats well and by making sure healthful fats are served alongside such as avocado or full fat sour cream, it’s filling… Continue reading Veggie Wrap Slaw
Summer is most definitely with us! Hot, humid in Oklahoma due to the incredible rainfall amounts we’ve had. But summer also means lots of vegetables in season. Vegetables that can be purchased from local farmer’s markets, grocery stores – some of which carry local produce – friend’s gardens and even your own garden.

With apples now in season this is a perfect time to pull out the recipe I want to share today. This particular recipe is one I… Continue reading Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples
Recently my daughter arrived home for a visit. At the moment she is helping to get an organic farm up and running. As she timed her visit right after a farmer’s market I was the recipient of several pounds of produce! She brought sun gold tomatoes, another heirloom type of tomato, yellow squash, red and… Continue reading Variety of Vegetables
Some years ago a friend of mine mentioned receiving a bag of fresh vegetables which they proceeded to grill. To her surprise okra was what she enjoyed the most. Since then we have grilled okra countless times and it’s hard to decide whether fried or grilled is my favorite! I do know that when it comes to… Continue reading Grilled Okra and Squash
