Kale Potato Bread Stuffing

This Kale Potato Bread Stuffing is a comforting side dish that goes perfect with a chicken, pork chop or steak dinner.  You’ll love how the top is slightly crispy too! 

I love stuffing.  I’ve shared my Amish Potato Stuffing and Cheesy Broccoli Stuffing Casserole before but wanted to share with you my current favorite side dish, Kale Potato Bread Stuffing!   This recipe uses my Amish Potato Stuffing as a base but I threw in kale to add some greens.  Since the dish has a whopping 4 cups of kale in it, you don’t even need to make a extra vegetable to serve at dinner. 

This Kale Potato Bread Stuffing is a comforting side dish that goes perfect with a chicken, pork chop or steak dinner. You'll love how the top is slightly crispy too!

This is the perfect side dish to a chicken, pork chop or steak dinner.  It’s also a great dish to serve for large potluck parties (think of the upcoming Big Game!) as a small serving of it goes a long way in hunger and taste.

Easy Slow Cooker Cabbage Roll Casserole

Easy to make and extra delicious Cabbage Roll Casserole made in 3 hours in the Slow Cooker!  These are also called Halupkie!

Halupkie (aka Cabbage Rolls) were a big deal in my house.  My Mother is Polish, so the recipe was passed down from generation to generation and ended up being one of my favorite meals she would make. She would add ground beef, rice and tomato sauce into a big piece of cabbage, roll it up, throw it in the fridge overnight to sit and then we would have them for Sunday dinner.  Just the smell of cabbage takes me back to my childhood!

Easy to make and extra delicious Cabbage Roll Casserole made in 3 hours in the Slow Cooker! These are also called Halupkie!

This Cabbage Roll Casserole is a direct spin off my Mother’s recipe, but we’re making this in casserole form in the slow cooker.   Honestly, cabbage rolls once cut open aren’t the most pretty food, so just think of this as a big bowl of comfort food and see past the non-perfect visuals.  A nice warm bowl of cabbage roll casserole is the perfect dinner for a cold Winter night.  Even better is that this recipe only takes 3 hours in the slow cooker – so it’ll be ready before you know it!

Slow Cooker Broccoli Potato Cheese Soup

Make this Broccoli and Potato Cheese Soup for a comfort food dinner on a cold Winter night.  The soup is cooked on high in a slow cooker for 4 hours.  This soup is both delicious and easy to make! 

The end of November brought cold weather and rainy days.  Because of the added layers to stay warm and the drizzle of rain it also brought a laziness to the dinner table.  I’ve been stuck in a dinner rut the last few weeks making easy and quick meals.  It usually gets to dinner time and we’re both too tired to really think of anything new so it’s something simple.    I am craving comfort food right now.  Hearty, creamy and cheesy is what I want.   To make a comforting Winter meal that is still simple and quick, I brought out my slow cooker and this Broccoli and Potato Cheese Soup was born.

Make this Broccoli and Potato Cheese Soup for a comfort food dinner on a cold Winter night. The soup is cooked on high in a slow cooker for 4 hours. This soup is both delicious and easy to make!

This soup pretty much is the definition of comfort food.  It’s potatoes and onions slow cooked in broth.  Then we’re going to add the broccoli.  Add in some cheddar cheese, stir it around and we have a extra creamy soup that is the perfect dish to serve on a cold night.    With most soups, I always suggest adding some crusty bread, or a leftover Thanksgiving dinner roll so you can dip it in the soup.

Easy Shrimp, Tomato & Corn Salad – 15 Minute Meal!

Easy to make Shrimp, Tomato & Corn Salad that is ready in 15 minutes.  This is perfect to serve for dinner over pasta, as a appetizer or a light lunch.

This is my current go to lunch as well as go to appetizer for dinner parties if I don’t have time to bake some homemade bread.   I love this dish because it’s easy to make, filled with healthy vegetables and is delicious.  If I’m expecting a solo dinner, I can quarter this recipe and serve over some fettuccine noodles and it tastes like a gourmet meal.  I love the taste of lime and cilantro to garnish a dish, but if lime isn’t your thing you could substitute lemon juice instead.   You could also turn this into a full salad and throw it on top of some crunchy arugula – another one of my favorite lunches!  See, isn’t this salad awesome because it’s so flexible?  Hope you enjoy!

Japanese Curry – Karei Raisu

Delicious homemade Japanese Curry using beef, onions, potatoes, carrots and curry sauce mix.

I love Curry.  And I’m not talking about Steph Curry because you guys know I’m a Cavs fan.  I’m talking about curry, the delicious dish that can be found in multiple varieties around the world.   In Morimoto’s cookbook Mastering the Art of Japanese Cooking he writes “Japanese curry is like the final whisper in an international game of telephone.  It began in India, moved to and morphed in England, and settled in my home country ….every prefecture and every family has its own version”.

Delicious homemade Japanese Curry (Karei Raisu) using beef, onions, potatoes, carrots and curry sauce mix.

Right now I’m really into Morimoto’s cookbook to get better at Japanese cooking. The book has everything in it from this delicious curry (who my husband rated as “one of the best things you ever  made”) to udon noodle soups, shrimp dumplings, rice bowls, tempura and so much more.   For a holiday gift I’d definitely add Mastering The Art of Japanese Home Cooking to your wishlist.  You can also find more recipes at the #JapaneseHomeCooking book blog party if you make this, fall in love and want to try more!

I first made these Lime Lentils during the Summer when we were in peak Sugar Snap Pea season.  I loved how easy they were to make.  I loved how economical the dish was (dry lentils are cheap!).  I loved how fresh the dish tasted due to the crunch of the peas.   A few months later it’s still one of our favorite side dishes.

Roasted Salted Soybeans Perfect For Snacking!

Roasted Salted Soybeans recipe using fresh soybeans. These are perfect for healthy snacking! 

A few years ago I learned how easy it is to grow soybeans in your garden.  They tend to be one of those plants where you plant a seed, don’t do much else and suddenly you have beans galore to pick.    Soybeans can be used in many recipes, including fresh edamame,  pesto for pasta/dip.   For this harvest I wanted to use some of our soybeans for a roasted healthy snack, something where I can throw a bunch in a bag and enjoy at my desk at work or a road trip.     I love guilt free snacking so I love these Roasted Salted Soybeans.

Pumpkin Sourdough Dinner Rolls

Extra soft Pumpkin Sourdough Dinner Rolls recipe.   These rolls have a subtle pumpkin flavor and make the perfect roll for Fall dinners and holidays.

If you follow me on social media you might know I have a thing about baking bread.  This Summer I started to get into it, especially Sourdough bread. I keep my Sourdough Starter in the fridge, bringing it out weekly to feed and bake something delicious.  With so much fresh pumpkin we have now from our garden pumpkins I wanted to mix it into a bread recipe so I came up with these extra delicious and soft Pumpkin Sourdough Dinner Rolls.

Frosted Cucumber Cookies

Chewy yummy Frosted Cucumber Cookies are classic tasting cookies but made with 1 cup grated cucumber to add some nutrients! The cookies are soft and you will fall in love with the frosting on top!  It’s the perfect cookie to make for your family! 

Cucumbers aren’t just for making pickles with (although they are sure are yummy).  You can also bake with cucumber, similar to how you’d use zucchini or pumpkin.  All you have to do is remove the seeds and grate the cucumber to get a similar texture.  I’ve been using cucumber in multiple baking recipes this Summer, like this Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread, and we’ve been loving it! 

Chewy yummy Frosted Cucumber Cookies are classic tasting cookies but made with 1 cup grated cucumber to add some nutrients! The cookies are soft and you will fall in love with the frosting on top! It's the perfect cookie to make for your family!

For this recipe I was inspired by Oatmeal Sugar Cookies that I used to love as a kid.  This recipe uses no oatmeal, but it has the same chewy consistency, along with the sugar frosting.    The cucumber is hardly tasted in this recipe, but slightly visible with beautiful green specks decorating the cookie here or there.   After family and friends tell you they love the cookies then you can tell them they are made with cucumbers.  They will be shocked, trust me, I do it all the time!

Slow Cooker Mexican Vegetarian Tomatillo Soup

Slow Cooker Mexican Vegetarian Tomatillo Soup is a comforting recipe filled with healthy vegetables. Unlike other Fall comfort soups this one is low calorie.   Soup ingredients include fresh tomatillos, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, corn and black beans! 

I didn’t plan on posting 2 tomatillo recipes this week but when you have a 10 pound basket full of tomatillos staring at you from the kitchen counter you might be persuaded.   It finally feels like Fall in NYC and I wanted to use the tomatillos in a Fall recipe instead of the usual salsa I make.  Whenever I think of tomatillos my mind always goes to soup so I decided to follow this path and come up with a Mexican inspired soup that uses tomatilos, as well as other garden fresh veggies: black beans, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno and corn.     This tomatillo soup tastes delicious and has a deep flavor due to the vegetables and spices.  It’s a comforting soup but doesn’t feel heavy like many other Fall soups.    I suggest serving this alongside some rolls or biscuits for dipping.

Slow Cooker Mexican Vegetarian Tomatillo Soup is a comforting recipe filled with healthy vegetables. Unlike other Fall comfort soups this one is low calorie. Soup ingredients include fresh tomatillos, tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, corn and black beans!

It warms my heart (literally) to see so many of the vegetables we grew in this soup.   The stars of this soup are the tomatillos which are filled with tasty juices that are going to be released in the slow cooker.

The other personal star in this soup are the black beans.   Last year we started growing our own dry beans and since then I’ve been hooked.  We grow a few different dry beans during the Summer so we can enjoy them in the Fall and Winter.   This recipe calls for 1 cup dry black beans but if you don’t have the time to soak them you can also use 1 can of black beans.

Roasted Tomatillo, Onion & Jalapeno Salsa

This recipe for Roasted Tomatillo, Onion & Jalapeno Salsa is delicious for dipping chips in!  The vegetables are roasted in the oven which creates a creamy salsa!

This year we’ve grown the most tomatillos in our gardening history so I’ve been excited to experiment with new tomatillo recipes.  I usually rely on my Tomatillo Salsa Verde recipe to make with our tomatillos (plus it freezes great for preserving) but I wanted to make a Tomatillo Salsa that was creamy, thick but not too thick and very tasty.  This recipe calls for tomatillos, onions and jalapenos which makes it a triple threat if you have all 3 growing in your garden.   Roasting them in the oven gives them a rich, smoky taste and helps in making the salsa creamy instead of watery.     

This recipe for Roasted Tomatillo, Onion & Jalapeno Salsa is delicious for dipping chips in! The vegetables are roasted in the oven which creates a creamy salsa!

This is a perfect salsa to serve alongside tortilla chips, but it’s also delicious to add on top of tacos, burritos and even chili.   If you’re looking for a new salsa to try I hope you give this a shot!

Day 3 of Tomato Week!  Monday was Marinated Italian Diced Tomatoes.  Tuesday was Creamy Roma Tomato Soup.  Now I want to show you how to easily use fresh tomatoes in a Mexican dish. 

I am loving this 5 minute burrito bowl right now because it’s quick, filling, delicious and uses fresh vegetables from our garden.   It’s perfect for lunch (at home or take to work) because it’s so fast to make.  I like preparing 2-3 bowls worth of ingredients in the beginning of the week, so I can just throw everything in a container, head to work and then microwave it once it’s lunch time.   If you’re craving a quick Burrito Bowl for dinner, this is the recipe for you too!  You could even add some extra protein to it, such as chicken or more beans.

Marinated Overnight Italian Diced Tomatoes (No Boiling or Peeling Needed)

These Italian Diced Tomatoes are marinated overnight with spices for full flavor. Unlike other diced tomato recipes no boiling, water bath or peeling is needed!  Bonus how to make tomato paste below the recipe!

Let me welcome you to tomato week!  If you didn’t see in last week’s garden video it’s raining tomatoes for us in New York so I’ve been spending lots of quality time with our lovely tomatoes in the kitchen!  Today I’m going to show you these Marinated Overnight Italian Diced Tomatoes which are easy and delicious! Tomorrow is all about creamy tomato soup!  Later this week I’m giving you a quick tomato/rice dish that is perfect for taking to work for lunch! And finally I’m going to pick tomatoes, lots of them, and show you many photos of them like any proud tomato Mother would.  So let’s jump in to tomato week!

These Italian Diced Tomatoes are marinated overnight with spices for full flavor. Unlike other diced tomato recipes no boiling, water bath or peeling is needed!

We use diced tomatoes frequently in recipes so I like to always have some on hand.   Last year I only made a few homemade batches but we went through them quickly so this year I was determined to make at least twice the number of batches to freeze.   There’s 2 ways to go about making diced tomatoes, there’s the longer process of boiling and removing the peels (which is delicious but it takes time), or there’s this way whith is also delicious but is quick!  We are picking at least 50 pounds of tomatoes a week right now so I need to be careful of time, or I’ll have to quit my job because preserving vegetables can sometimes be a full time job!  In this recipe, all you have to do is cut them up, marinate them over night in the refrigerator and then cook for 30 minutes.   You can also duplicate this recipe as many times as you need per how many tomatoes you are picking.  For example the recipe calls for 5 tomatoes but I quintupled it because I had so many tomatoes!

We are loving this dish right now in our house because it’s easy to make and filled with garden fresh veggies and comforting cheese.   Many times I’ll  prepare this lasagna earlier in the day so all I have to do is turn on the oven and throw it in when it’s dinner time.   Whenever I make this I text Matthew a photo of the lasagna and he’ll text back hearts and swoony faces.    Back-to- school season is one of the busiest times of the year, and families are on the lookout for easy meals that deliver big on flavor.  This is a lasagna that the family will fall in love with.

This lasagna is filled with veggies that go perfect with the “Mexican” flavor.   Most vegetarian lasagna recipes use eggplant and zucchini but I don’t .  Why?  That’s easy.  We don’t grow those vegetables, hah.  Case closed.  Instead I use the veggies that are grown in our garden to make this as fresh as possible.  There’s kale, tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion and black beans stacked inside 3 layers of lasagna noodles, alongside ricotta and mozzarella cheese.

This is a easy comforting meal filled with vegetables from the garden that I hope you’ll love as much as I do.   Right now kids are going back to school, creating havoc on the Fall schedule.  There’s school, sports, activities, homework and there’s also you! Don’t forget to take care of you!  I wanted to create a recipe that would be ready in 20 minutes that is still wholesome with fresh ingredients – a meal you’ll feel good about serving the family. Enjoy!
Buttered Cabbage and Rice is a comfort food recipe that only takes 20 minutes from start to finish!

The main vegetables in this recipe are cabbage and peas, 2 things that we have in abundance right now in the garden.   I’ve always liked cabbage, but this Summer I turned into a real cabbage lover.  I can’t get enough of it, especially sauteed and buttered!  Yum.   Our sugar snap peas are coming to a end this season, what’s left is those monster peas that are busting through the pods.   The recipe calls for 1/2 peas so you can either use frozen peas (cook them first) or you can shell fresh peas.   Use whatever you hand on hand and is easiest.
