I’m not a huge fan of mangoes, but the hubby, he loves mango salsa. So when we got some mangoes in our Bountiful Basket, I was pretty sure they’d end up in salsa form. Then I dropped them and they got a bit bruised. Oops. This salsa doesn’t care if the mangoes are little beat up, and was super easy and is hubby-approved.
I found myself with a plethora of blueberries that needed to find a use and a strong desire to make vegan muffins, but there’s a catch. We generally try to avoid soy products and with my husband’s allergies, most nut products as well. So when I looked up recipes for vegan muffins and saw almond milk, soy butter substitute, and various nut butters popping up everywhere, I decided I would just have to make my own recipe. With the help of the internet and some food-wise friends, I decided on my ingredients and gave it a shot. I have since devoured these delicious muffins and am sad that they’re almost gone.
This is quickly becoming my new favorite food. Now, seeing as a vegetarian dish is about to beat out Chicken Parmesan and Pepperoni Pizza for top billing, it’s safe to say it’s pretty spectacular!
Cottage Pie is a traditional Irish dish that was intended to use up leftover meat and veggies. It is probably one of my favorite dishes and is incredibly easy. Whether you’re looking for a special dish for St. Patrick’s Day, or a crowd pleasing dinner for the Ultimate Pi Day, Cottage Pie is the perfect fit!
For Philip’s birthday he requested a Black Forest cake. I had not made one before, but priding myself on my baking skills, I endeavored to try it. I found a simple recipe that allowed for a few short cuts and modified it a bit.
We cannot keep acorn squash in the house. The reason being that my husband and son will inhale acorn squash muffins. You’d think these muffins gave super powers with how quickly they get devoured!
This recipe is my pumpkin bread recipe but you use the acorn squash and cook it in muffin tins!
|Halve the squash and scoop out the guts.
(Give the guts to some back yard chickens for a natural dewormer.)
Lay the cut side down and bake until the squash gives in easily when pressed.
Scoop the meat from the skin while warm and mash with a fork.
