Tasty Lentil Mushroom Meatloaf

I love good, old-fashioned comfort food recipes like this tasty lentil mushroom meatloaf. Being able to make and serve the dishes I was raised on, that our whole family loved, is a delight.

Triple A Summer Salad with Ditalini

Triple A Summer Salad combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, but especially the “A”s: arugula, asparagus and artichoke hearts.

Slow Cooker Three Bean Chili

Make this tasty, delicious slow cooker three bean chili as spicy as you like! The addition of salsa and chopped jalapenos lets you control the heat by adding more or less. I’ve never been a fan of hot foods when the heat keeps you from tasting the flavors. This recipe is spicy, but all the […]
