Lightened Up Bolognese Sauce

When I was younger I was an unabashed carnivore. I ate my burgers plain with cheese and ketchup, and would always eat the meat in dishes and often skipped the veggies. Forget a salad – I went the route of meat, meat and more meat. It’s not that I didn’t like vegetables, I would and did eat broccoli, carrots, peppers ... Read More »

Sweet Potato Stuffed Pasta Shells

Ok so I’ll admit it – I was worried about this recipe. Some backstory, my last CSA of the season (sob!) came this week and included a small amount of sweet potatoes, about a pound’s worth. I knew I was going to use them as the “featured ingredient” in whatever dinner I made, plus I definitely wanted to keep this ... Read More »

Sausage Mix over Italian Potato Corn Cakes

  Did everyone have a fantastic Labor Day weekend?  What’d you all do? And oh my gosh it’s like the heat broke.  I drove by a local pizza place the other day and it said it was 103 degrees, no joke.  Yesterday and today it’s hovering in the 70’s.  I guess summer is officially over; at least if you’re in ...
