Looking for an easy lunch or dinner recipe? Squash soup is just the thing. And very flexible based on what you have in your pantry.
And a way to use my favorite tool that I never knew I had to have, the Immersion blender. (more on that later)
Working at Parley […]

We found out that we both love cooking and teaching. She asked me if I make up my own recipes.
Somehow I always get a little embarassed by this question. No, I don’t really make up stuff out of […]

I wanted to do something really special. And Kansas City BBQ jumped right off the pages of my July 2007 Cooking Light. I adapted a few recipes and Lunch Buddies- hope you love them tomorrow as […]

Last week, I made Swiss Enchiladas for the Lunch bunch. As I was prepping, I was thinking about my dear friend (who shall remain nameless) who has never cut an onion.
Now, I may not be America’s Next Iron Chef and I may not have the onion cutting mad skillz of your favorite classically trained […]

I’m not sure what to call this week’s lunches- certainly “themed” isn’t the word. Maybe “bookended”?? You be the judge!
Tuesday will be pork wild rice burgers from Husnik’s meat, paired with a fruit salad.
Wednesday will be Swiss Enchiladas with a side salad and light vinaigrette.
Thursday will be Applegate Farms Natural chicken patties […]
