Cherry Tomato and Basil Pizza

Cherry Tomato and Basil Pizza

Cherry tomatoes are so sweet this time of year you can eat them like grapes. There are always several vendors at our local farmers markets that sell the packages of mixed varieties so you can try types may not ordinarily buy.

Slow Cooker Korean Style Shortribs

Slow Cooker Korean Style Shortribs

Slow cookers can be a wonderful thing when used correctly. Having a hot meal waiting when you get home from work or running errands is such a stress reducer. I’ve had several slow cookers over the years and I haven’t gotten enough use out of any of them. I have a slight fear of leaving things cooking […]

Spinach Salad with Golden Beets and Bleu Cheese

The past couple of weeks have been pretty stressful. Hubby has been traveling for his job and work has been…. well work. When I’m stressed and hubby is out of town I tend to eat crap  – chips, Cheetos, chicken wings, etc. Very few proper dinners and not many fruits and veggies. It’s a bad habit […]
