Not Fried Rice - South Beach Friendly

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
I love cauliflower, but as a rice substitute the cauliflower taste really stands out. Not so in this dish. If you're craving some takeout this is the healthy ticket for you!

BLT Pasta Carbonara

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
The addition of summer tomatoes and spinach to this traditional dish brings things to a whole new level. The trick to the recipe is preparation, have all the ingredients ready to go as it comes together as quickly as it takes to boil the pasta.

Instant Pot Beef Stroganoff

A family favorite version of this classic dish

Mashed Potato Bread

Super soft, this bread is a favorite of the children. Best yet it uses up all those leftover potatoes.

Golabkis (Galumpkis)

I grew up making and eating these delicious vegetable filled rolls with my family. After many experiments I finally settled on this as my version. It is the best when using in season ingredients direct from our farmers.

Vegan Chili

I created this dish for our meatless Fridays. It's a thick, delicious option for that chili craving. It's also great because you can add and substitute just about anything in the recipe. If you have a garden that's producing hot peppers, chop or puree them up and add them in place of some chili powder; use fresh tomatoes instead of canned; etc.

"Easy" Homemade "Condensed" Cream of Chicken Soup

I have been searching for a good "quick and easy" replacement for the canned soup called for in so many recipes. This is what works for me.

Kale and Sausage Rotini

This is a quick, delicious recipe my family loves and allows us to eat up lots of those summer greens.
