Homemade Vegetable Stock

Homemade Vegetable Stock

Homemade vegetable stock.  For a newbie vegetarian like myself, I have to say, this stuff is like magic!  Honestly, before I became a vegetarian a month ago, I had never made homemade vegetable stock before.  In fact, before giving up meat entirely, I am not […]

Marinated Cauliflower Greek Orzo Salad

Marinated Cauliflower Greek Orzo Salad

Sour Cream and Onion Buttermilk Ranch Dip

Sour Cream and Onion Buttermilk Ranch Dip

Sour Cream and Onion Buttermilk Ranch Dip takes the title for Favorite Dip at my house.  And that’s saying a lot, considering I might be the world’s biggest fan of dips and dressings.  What can I say?  I’m a dipper.  And naturally, so are my kids! […]




Roasted Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche

Roasted Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche

Roasted Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche just screams “spring,” doesn’t it?  While it is still quite cold here in Washington State, the snow is finally beginning to melt, the days are becoming longer, and I even noticed a few small green buds popping out on some […]
