Gluten Free Roasted Vegetable Pesto Lasagna

Gluten Free Roasted Vegetable Pesto Lasagna

This is for my gluten free friends who are allergic to tomatoes. I had a craving for lasagna, but I’m allergic to wheat and tomato. Luckily, I came across some gluten free, no-boil lasagna noodles at the store and dreamed up this recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

Summer Squash Casserole

Summer Squash Casserole

Living in the countryside where most people garden, I am often faced with the common question of what to do with too many summer squash.

Turkey Dressing

Turkey Dressing

Here on the East Coast of Canada, and especially in the “potato belt” where I live, this Thanksgiving side dish is featured in a lot of households. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve never measured – I just eyeball it to feed whoever is showing up, plus extra for surprise drop-ins and leftovers.
Note: you’ll want to prepare this when your turkey is just about or completely done cooking so you can scoop the pan juices.

Beef Stroganoff My Way

I created this recipe to helps spice up a classic dish. The pepper jack hollandaise is such a creamy sauce that is to die! The spicy kick in the sauce is a perfect pair with the grilled cornbread and poached egg.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Salami Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash and Salami Soup

I came up with this recipe when I wanted a savory butternut squash soup but was all out of bacon. I had salami on hand and gave it a try and the results were amazing. It sounds weird but it delicious.
