Garlic Green Beans
Caramelized garlic and cheese! Is there anything better with green beans? You'd better make plenty for everyone!
I blundered into this delicious mix of ingredients while trying to use up leftover vegetables in the fridge. Even friends who 'don't like vegetarian cooking' have enjoyed it. I like the slightly bitter taste of unwashed quinoa (just check for unwanted debris before you use it), but most recipes call for rinsed quinoa.
Baked Mushrooms and Potatoes with Spinach
This is a tasty, thrifty comfort food which is healthy and can be changed to fit any lifestyle. Add some cheese or bacon bits for a different twist.
Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf
This is comfort food at its best with mild flavors and it's simple to make. This is a very versatile dish: if you prefer, you can use almonds in place of the cashews, and cilantro in place of the parsley.
Cherry Farro Salad with Sweet Vinaigrette
Here's a delicious salad using a whole grain that not only tastes good but is good for you! The flavors are refreshing and sweet while the crunchy nuts and farro give it wonderful texture!

Basic Mashed Potatoes
If you love good, old fashioned mashed potatoes this is the perfect recipe. Simple and delicious.
Microwave Corn on the Cob
This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!
