Summer Corn Ratatouille with Polenta.  A summery spin on ratatouille made in the slow cooker ... so you (and we) can enjoy more time in the sun, sand and surf this summer. Zucchini, summer squash, red onion, tomatoes, fresh corn and garlic are slow cooked to perfection and served overtop polenta and topped with fresh basil and shaved parmesan. This Summer Corn Ratatouille with Polenta can be served hot on cool evenings, or chill it and serve cold on hot and humid evenings. We served it over polenta for a main course, but it’s also delicious served on its own as a side dish. You're probably thinking, aren’t slow cookers for cold weather months? That was my initial though when the ladies over at The Recipe ReDux challenged us to Beat the Heat with the [Read More]

Happy Earth Day friends! We’re celebrating with this Black Lentils with Roasted Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Pesto. Go. Make. It. Are you doing anything special today to celebrate or protect the earth?

Mini Bread Bowl Cobb Salads

I received free samples of Toufayan Pita mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan Bakeries and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

It must have been in high school…and that was a lonnnng time ago. I went to high school in Cincinnati and there was a place called Perkins (is it anywhere else in the country?) that served breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Nothing fancy or special, just a casual place and a hangtime for teens. I’d go there with friends or my family and […]
