CAJUN STYLE BAKED RIBS

CAJUN STYLE BAKED RIBS

THIS DISH IS MY HUSBANDS ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! HE WILL EAT THE ENTIRE SLAB IF I ALLOW IT. DEFINITELY THE BEST MEAT I HAVE PREPARED. PERFECT FOR A GET TOGETHER, COOKOUT, OR JUST A SPECIAL DINNER NIGHT TO IMPRESS THE FAMILY.

Basil tomato squash

Basil tomato squash

A fresh taste of summer. Low calorie, big flavor, satisfying. I just created it tonight instead of a caprese salad. (Because someone ate all the fresh mozzarella, ugh.)

Hot Pimiento Cheese Bacon Dip

Hot Pimiento Cheese Bacon Dip

A slight twist on traditional Pimiento Cheese – add bacon! A quick trip through the oven turns this Southern staple into a hot, melty dish of delicious cheesiness.

Zuccheroni – Vegan Pepperoni

Zuccheroni – Vegan Pepperoni

This started as a wild experiment for a family member who was trying to become a vegetarian. Made from thinly sliced zucchini “cured” in olive oil and spices, it can be served cold as antipasto, or baked onto a pizza.

Layered Pistachio Baklava

Layered Pistachio Baklava

Baklava was always the treat I bought or was gifted. I never attempted making it at home because it seemed like it would be an overly tedious task. Once you get into the rhythm of things though, the act of layering each sheet of phyllo and chopped nuts, becomes quite cathartic.

Spiced Carrots, Chickpeas, and Herbs

Spiced Carrots, Chickpeas, and Herbs

These golden brown carrots and chickpeas, paired with the punchy and tangy dressing, is something you’ll want to serve at every meal! Eat as an appetizer, side dish, or even main course.
