Zucchini Bread {Recipe}

Yesterday I shared on Facebook that my kitchen smelled heavenly due to the zucchini bread that was baking in my oven. My friend Mariana asked if I could share the recipe and since Mariana is one of the very best online friends a girl could ask for, you’re darn right I can share the recipe! […]

Meatless Monday – Fried Brown Rice with Veggies and Tofu

I know what you’re thinking right now.  It’s been like forever since I posted a Meatless Monday post and you’ve all been eating meat like crazy because I have failed you miserably as a leader.  Or maybe, wow Cathy, you’re such a slacker and yeah, we’ve been doing just fine without your Meatless Monday posts […]

Meatless Monday – Baked Potatoes with Broccoli and Cheese

Since I pretty much cook meatless meals every day of the week they aren’t always the most intricate dishes.  Sometimes it’s just about eating something healthy, simple, and seasonal.  A meal that will fill everyone up and meets all of those requirements is baked potatoes.  They can easily be a meal with the right toppings […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Something I look forward to most about fall is the amazing harvest of vegetables, with all the beautiful colors and warmth, and of course the delicious recipes that go along with all of them.  Pumpkins are one of my favorites to cook with.  I promise, once you have prepared pumpkin puree from scratch, from a […]

Meatless Monday – Vegetable Stew

One of my very favorite meals when it starts to get chilly outside is stew.  Finding a recipe for vegetable stew that had a creamy base similar to those with meat in them was a big challenge, but a must for me. I decided to see what I could throw together on my own and […]

Meatless Monday – Homemade Pasta Sauce

If there’s one thing we all love, at least in my family, it’s a delicious pasta dish smothered in a yummy marinara sauce.  What heightens the level of enjoyment is when that sauce is made from scratch with love, sweat, and a sore wrist from slicing and dicing. The other thing that makes it so […]

Meatless Monday – Five Favorites of my Meat Loving Husband

My husband loves meat.  It is what it is and that’s okay, but I am the shopper and don’t buy much meat at all, which means it’s pretty much Meatless Monday most days in our home. My younger son and I are vegetarians and my older son is mostly vegetarian, but my husband would still […]

Mostly Meatless Monday – Yves Meatless Hot Dogs and Recipe for Homemade Coleslaw

It’s Meatless Monday and although I don’t have a recipe for an entire meal to share, I do have a couple of ideas from my family’s weekend that I would love to pass along to you.  The weather was beautiful here and although we are missing our grill because it’s in storage right now, I […]

Meatless Monday – Penne Pasta with Roasted Veggies and Field Roast Sausage

One of the hardest things to accomplish while being a vegetarian with my son (we do eat fish on occasion, so I guess technically we are pescetarian)  has been to prepare meals that will please my husband the carnivore.  On occasion I do buy him a local steak or ground beef, but for the most […]

Meatless Monday – Tacos with Refried Beans and Spanish Rice

I don’t know about you, but it feels like Monday comes so fast?!  That’s not even because I don’t like Mondays.  I like them, I am strange, I know.  They come fast because I think about this post and what recipe I want to share with you all for your own meatless meal.  Since we eat […]
