Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Pasta with Chicken

  While meal planning this week, I was doing some research into adding uncooked pasta into a slow cooker meal.  Almost everyone advised against it, but when I’ve added pre-cooked pasta to the slow cooker, it tends to get overcooked.  I figured there had to be a happy medium and decided to experiment.  Tonight was […]

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

Even though the temperature outside today betrays it, autumn is here, bringing with it a harvest of wonderful seasonal foods.  A couple of years ago, Dan and I began purchasing organic vegetables through a local CSA, Harmony Valley Farms.  Not only has the produce been fresh and delicious, but we’ve also discovered lots of new […]

This one I made tonight.  I also made another version with just vegetables, substituting zucchini for the chicken and feta cheese for the blue cheese.  Both were delicious, but […]

Beet recipes

I haven’t posted recipes in awhile…probably because I didn’t have anything of note to post.  My poor family members are the guinea pigs of many a recipe at our house.  Some good, some not-so-good.  They are always honest.   For the past couple of years, we’ve participated in a CSA (community supported agriculture) program through […]
