Pesto Recipe

Below is a winter greens pesto recipe from the Whole Foods Market website. I like the fact this pesto recipe includes the stems as there are nutrients in the stems and very often it is advised in recipes to dispose of them. Stems could be composted or taste good in a recipe. I have started [...]

Buttermilk Drop Biscuits Recipe

This recipe requires five ingredients and I enjoy making these when I have buttermilk at home along with Martha Stewart's buttermilk mashed potatoes. I found this recipe on a Grit magazine YouTube video. They are not overly complicated and the ingredients are simple and natural. The only thing that might be chemical is the flour and [...]

Pasta Amatriciana Recipe

I enjoy this recipe as it comes across as slightly different and healthier than buying spaghetti sauce in a jar. It does give you extra sauce. I like to add mushrooms and extra sausage to it. It is from the back of a Holland House Red Cooking Wine bottle. I have tried this with different [...]

Scrambled Eggs Mexican

Below is a recipe for scrambled eggs Mexican. This would still taste good without the sausage and a quick Internet search brings up many different variations of this recipe many of which do not include the sausage. It is also called huevos a la Mexicana or Mexican-style scrambled eggs and definitely tastes great. For a [...]

Freeze-Ahead Chicken and Artichoke Lasagna Whole Foods

Serves 8 Below is a recipe for chicken and artichoke lasagna from WholeFoodsMarkets.com. This was definitely a delicious and filling recipe and I would make it again. It does use three different types of cheeses and for a very healthy recipe you should probably stick to a vegan lasagna recipe. Traditional lasagna recipes use beef and [...]

Make sure not to overcook the biscuits and use fresh ingredients. Celery goes bad rather quick from my personal experience. It is a good tasting recipe. In [...]

It is from a Christian Light Publication book cited at the bottom of this post. Ingredients 2/3 c chopped onion [...]

I was happy with the taste of the cookies and would definitely make them again. Ingredients 2 c brown sugar 1 c margarine (or 1/2 [...]

Sausage Patties

Below is a recipe for sausage patties from a Christian Light Education unit. Instead of pork sausage or ground turkey I actually used ground chicken thigh. The pictures are below along with a YouTube video from DivasCanCook.com that uses ground turkey. I thought the recipe still tasted great with the ground chicken instead of the ground turkey. This [...]

Tuna Salad

Below is a recipe for tuna salad from Christian Light Publications with pictures. The pictures are my own and I took them from home. I have made this recipe before with salmon and still thought it tasted great. I am not that picky though. Of course, the fresher the ingredients the better it tastes. Make [...]
