Mushroom Leek Soup

Mushroom Leek Soup

Mushroom soup will always and forever take me back to when I was a little girl.  When I was sick,  my own super momma would make cream of mushroom soup, and she would bring it to my bedroom on a tray so I could slurp it from under the covers.  Oh, how I love her. … Continue reading

Roasted Shrimp and Avocado Citrus Greens

Roasted Shrimp and Avocado Citrus Greens

I might love entrée salads more than any meal around.  Well, unless you count a filet from Ruth’s Chris or Thai curry from just about anywhere.  But the point is, when you’re going for healthy and quick and yummy, entrée salads are hard to beat. And this roasted shrimp extravaganza is one of the best. … Continue reading

Grilled Zucchini Sandwich

Grilled Zucchini Sandwich

Have y’all ever?!  You have to trust me when I say this sandwich is delicious.  Reminiscent of the zucchini burger served at our beloved Ramsey’s in Lexington, KY, this grilled balsamic zucchini on soft, sweet Italian bread with melted cheese is nothing short of scrum-dilli-o-cious. It actually makes me think I want to be a vegetarian. … Continue reading

Brit’s Mango Salsa

Brit’s Mango Salsa

Almost nine years ago, when my son Jake was born into the sticky heat of a Kentucky July, my life-long friend Brittany came to visit.  She brought a stack of the cutest baby rompers you could ever imagine, along with about 30 pounds of salsa fixins.  We drank margaritas and ate her mango salsa all … Continue reading

Zippy Baked Ziti

Zippy Baked Ziti

Zippy!  That’s what my kids have dubbed this baked ziti.  I wholeheartedly agree.  Zippy for the kids when they taste the kick from the Rotel.  Zippy for Momma when it takes only 20 minutes to throw together.  Bake for another 20 and you’ve got a one-pot-meal to rival any $12 dish from your favorite Italian … Continue reading

Tomato Feta Salad

Tis the season for salads!  This one packs a punch of flavor with only four to five ingredients.  Sweet grape tomatoes balanced with mild feta and fresh parsley, tossed in lemon juice.  Throw in an avocado or cucumber, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful bowl of sunshine! Last night we served this tomato salad with … Continue reading

Another Yummy Wrap!

Another Yummy Wrap!

We are addicted to wraps!  Start the week off right with this one, stuffed with hummus, yellow peppers, baby carrots, and turkey.  Such a great blend of flavors and so good for you! In case you missed it, my post a few days back gave the 411 on my favorite new mini tortilla from La … Continue reading

Campfire Sweeties

Campfire Sweeties

I have a confession.  I really do love camping.  Sure, it’s got its drawbacks.  Like, for instance, there is no kitchen.  And you have to bathe like you’re in the dorms again.  And you’ve got to be able to appreciate nature in all its glorious forms, including fire ants and hail storms.  And did I mention there is … Continue reading
