  • Baked Potato Casserole

    I love twice baked potatoes, but I always struggle with keeping the potato skins looking nice after I carve them out. This dish is basically twice baked potatoes, but all mashed up and baked like a casserole. Often when making twice baked potatoes, the filling gets eaten and the skin gets left. Since the skin is a good source of nutrients, I like this recipe because the skin gets mixed in. Enjoy!

  • Avocado appetizer

    Great as a side dish, or even a meatless meal for summertime. Serve with pita wedges, crostini, or tortilla chips.

  • Veggie Meatloaf

    This is such a fun recipe to make and so yummy to eat!  This calls for 1 teaspoon of your favorite seasonings.  I like to use some parsley, thyme and basil mixed together.
