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.

Thai Inspired Turkey Noodle Stir Fry

Who has leftover turkey they need to repurpose???  If you do then you need to keep this post in your arsenal. I’ll admit it.  I’m horrible about leftovers.  I can usually take them for lunch the next day but then my interest quickly wanes.  One can only eat so many turkey sandwiches before burnout occurs.

In this one, the owner of the blog hop will pick a country or region and then we attempt dishes from that region. This time she picked West Africa which I admit I’m extremely unfamiliar with.  I’ve eaten and enjoyed Ethiopian at ... Read More »

A bowl of roasted tomato soup with cheese quesadillas

It’s soup season! I’ll be posting a lot of soups/stews in the coming months and I figured I’d kick off the season with a basic – tomato soup. More specifically – this Roasted Tomato Soup and Cheesy Vegetable Quesadillas because what goes better with tomato soup but cheese? Completely randomly though, the weather in Cincinnati has been hovering in the ... Read More »
