Spinach Balls

16 Apr

Spinach Balls come out of a cookbook I picked up while living in Virginia.  They are ment to be made and served as appetizers.  However, when I made these up, I was a bit impatient.  I didn’t feel like rolling about 100 small spinach balls, so instead, I made them meatball size.  This saved me a ton of time, and also made for the perfect meatball substitute.  Not only are they totally yummy to eat by themselves, but they are even better when mixed with a nice pasta sauce and placed on top of your favorite pasta.  If you want to sneak spinach into your families diet, this is a great way to it.

Taco Dip Recipe

15 Mar

Taco Dip is a super delicious and simple recipe, that is a throwback from my childhood.  When I was growing up, it seemed like nearly every get-together we had, be it birthday party or clam bake, my mother would whip up Taco Dip.  I remember salivating watching her make the Taco Dip, in anticipation of being the first one to grab myself some tortilla chips and dig in to the yummy layers.  I can’t believe it took me so long to make this myself, it’s just one of those recipes that it seemed like only mom could make.

Tomato Basil Sandwiches

24 May

Tomato Basil Sandwiches is a  great summertime entree.  They are easy to make, and the tomato-basil is very refreshing.  When it starts getting hot outside, I start looking for recipes that don’t require a lot of prep work or cooking.  These Tomato Basil Sandwiches can be made on the grill, along with corn or other veggies to be served as a side dish.  However, I like to use a Panini press or similar indoor grill sometimes instead of cooking outside, especially when it is really hot out.

Corn and Cheddar Chowder

If you couldn’t tell by now, I am a soup lover.  I love trying out new soups, finding new ways to delicately simmer ingredients until their flavors meld together.  With Spring in full bloom and Summer just around the corner, soon grocery stores and farmers markets will be flooded with local sweet corn.  What better way to celebrate the great corn harvest, then to make and amazing Corn and Cheddar Chowder.

Vegetable Chowder Recipe

10 Mar

There is nothing I like better then eating homemade soups, stews, and chowders.  I love how the longer ingredients simmer the more the flavor develops, and you can get completely different tastes from similar ingredients depending on how they are combined.  Soups are multi-talented, they can be served nearly any time of the day.  They can be hearty and warm on those cool days, or they can be chilled and light when it’s warm out.  Soups are simply fabulous!
