Swiss Chard and Mozzarella Quiche in Zucchini Crust

Rating: 4.5 stars 4
Vegetarian quiche baked in zucchini shells. Zucchini should be about 12 inches long and 3-4 inches in diameter.

Roasted Veggie Pasta Bake

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
Family-friendly baked pasta can be made a day ahead and baked before dinner. A big hit in my family! The roasted vegetables add a lot of depth of flavor. You could add frozen spinach (defrosted) but my kids won't touch it with spinach.

Homemade Beef Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 3735
A tender, homemade beef stew with carrots, potatoes, and rosemary.

Creamy Salmon and Leek Pasta

Rating: 4.5 stars 81
A super easy springtime pasta! Not too heavy, not too light, some would say; 'just right.' Not many ingredients but big time flavor.

French Leek Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 193
It's an original French recipe My Mum used to bake during the holidays. Great to eat with a salad during summer or even winter time. Absolutely Delicious!!! Can be prepared the day before and served as a starter or main dish. Can substitute Emmental for Gruyere cheese.

Ziti With Olives and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Rating: 3 stars 4
I always use ziti to make this, it looks so elegant, but any macaroni will do. Serve with a Greek salad.

Avocado Pasta

Rating: 4.5 stars 6
This avocado pasta recipe is amazing! Fresh garlic livens up some whole grain penne pasta. Fresh herbs add lots of flavor.

Carrot, Tomato, and Spinach Quinoa Pilaf with Ground Turkey

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
I took some leftover quinoa pilaf and added black beans and ground turkey. It made an excellent one-dish meal that hits the table in a hurry. I found it was a good way to use up the leftovers from another dinner. We have the pilaf as a side dish for the two of us, and it is always too much. Adding ground turkey and black beans makes another unique meal that is quick to prepare. Enjoy!

Spring Vegetable Frittata for Mother

Rating: 5 stars 49
It always feels a little wrong making a frittata with freshly cooked vegetables, since the whole point of the dish is to use up leftovers, but seeing as we're making this for a Mother's Day brunch special, we'll make an exception. Make sure all your vegetables are tender, hot, and well seasoned before adding your eggs, and not a lot can go wrong.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 2102
My husband (who is not a cook) developed this recipe when looking through what we had in the fridge. We love capers and my VERY picky 8-year old always asks for 'Daddy's chickie.'

Shakshuka (Middle Eastern Breakfast Dish)

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
This is a great, quick, flavorful dish I learned while living in southern Israel. You can add spices to taste, but for the first go, try it this way. Makes 2 hearty servings. Serve with bread to sop up the sauce.

Mom's Zucchini Pancakes

Rating: 4.5 stars 205
Crispy, pan-fried zucchini pancakes made with eggs, Parmesan, and onion.
