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. I made this recipe with yellow crooknecks, but it ought to work with any firm squash, like zucchini or patty-pan. It is almost soufflé like, fluffy and creamy and cheesy all at once.

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.

A beautiful autumn-hued salad, but perfect any time of year. The sweet squash and carrot mingle in a Vietnamese-style dressing, with a little kick from jalapeño.

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.

Thanksgiving Caramel Butternut Naan

Thanksgiving Caramel Butternut Naan

I wanted to make a yummy dessert with Naan flatbread. In the past, I had used it for savory dishes but this time I wanted to use it as a dessert. We used butternut squash for it’s mild sweet flavor, with a quick caramel and toppings I now have a dessert to remember. I am certain this will be a favorite for our family for years to come!
