Baby Spinach & Kale Omelet

Breakfast for dinner or breakfast for breakfast.  Omelets work for both. So simple, yet so tasty, omelets are often my fallback to use whatever I have around.  This time it was spinach and kale, local eggs, aged cheddar and pepper jack cheese. My husband opted for the cheddar, and me, the kick of the pepper…

Chile-and-Olive Oil Fried Egg with Avocado and Sprouts

It’s been a busy few weeks with a lot of heavy, rich, fattening foods and way too  much sugar. So I wanted to start the new year with a light, fresh, healthy and very flavorful dinner. I also wanted it to be quick and easy, so, a twist on breakfast for dinner it was…Chile-and-Olive Oil…

Broccoli & Turkey Bacon Rice Bowl

Broccoli from the farmers market, jalapenos from my garden, local eggs & turkey bacon…a fun combination of ingredients.  I have made this rice bowl a few times, and we always love it. I make my son a deconstructed version and he devours it., so its a hit all around. Broccoli and Turkey Bacon Rice Bowl…

Swiss Chard Cottage Cheese Puff

Ah, good ol’ swiss chard.  Yes, it has been growing in the garden all spring, summer, and now fall.  I got so tired of it by early summer, I pulled all but 2 of the plants and have been lopping them off every now and then.  But, there is no killing swiss chard (at least…

Summer’s Bounty “Shakshouka”

I now have patty pan squash and carrots coming out of my ears! It seems like every dinner starts with a cutting board like the one below. My first night back to work after the California trip, I returned from Philadelphia and just stared at the produce in my kitchen, trying to come up with…

Kale and Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs

It has been a strange spring in my garden.  The vegetables that usually grow well, such as sugar snap peas, were basically failures and the ones I usually struggle with, such as cauliflower and the kale below, have done well. So dishes I had been looking forward to making will have to wait until next year as I…

Roasted Cauliflower Frittata

As I have been saying, I am tickled with the cauliflower in my garden.  So far I have used the cauliflower in Spanish Cauliflower-Chickpea Salad and in a vegetable tempura that really good, but I did not get enough photos of to be able to build a post on it.  Tonight was a frittata I developed last…

Raisin Farfel Kugel

Although I am now in Israel celebrating Passover with my daughter in the Negev, I wanted to leave you with a few recipes for the holiday.  This first one is a traditional raisin farfel kugel by Chef Ceasar.  I was drawn to it because it reminded me very much of my mothers noodle kugel.  I…

Breakfast Burritos

Ok…yum!  Breakfast for dinner again. I have to admit that I do not like big, heavy breakfasts…ever.  But I love breakfast foods, especially for dinner.  So when I saw a breakfast burrito by Ellie Krieger, I knew it would be light but satisfying, so I adapted it for my family’s preferences. I love bell peppers,…

Summer Squash and Egg Skillet

Zucchini, Zucchini, Zucchini…time yet again for a zucchini dinner.  Tonight’s is a variation on the other egg skillets I have shared that include zucchini.  In this one, the zucchini and yellow squash are the stars, serving as the base upon which the eggs rest. I bought these beautiful green zucchini from Beechwood Orchards at the farmers…
