Sesame Green Beans with Crispy Garlic

I’ve been craving veggies lately.  I even moved up my Sunday Roastday to Friday because I just couldn’t wait.  While these green beans are not roasted, it satisfied my need for some greens.  And throw in some delicious crispy garlic cloves…heaven. This makes a great side dish for a barbecue or party, but lets be…

Vegan Pastitsio

Pastitsio is a Greek baked casserole with layers of pasta, meat sauce, and béchamel that is savory with a hint of sweetness.   It is one of my all-time childhood favorites and brings back memories of going into Detroit’s Greektown for a big family dinner when our Greek relatives came into town.

The chilled dip has a cool, fresh, mellow flavor with some heat rising on…

Wilted Kale and Beans

This is just about one of the easiest recipes to make, using only six ingredients.  Do you see a theme coming from me lately…easy and simple…  Eventually, I’ll master being a  supermom, you know, making crafts that would put Pinterest to shame, preparing four course meals every day, sewing all of our clothes, and growing…

Grilled Asian Bella Skewers

So after about a two month hiatus, I am finally back at it.  My family moved into a new house and between the move, unpacking, decorating, and all the craziness that comes with having two babies, I’m lucky to have my sanity.  Fortunately, I have a great husband and plenty of red wine that pulled…
