I’ve always been really partial to summer. It’s my birthday season, school is out, beach time, grill time, party time, vacation time… It’s pretty…

Ginger Butternut Soup

Cue rant. My husband just had an outpatient surgery to repair his hip (quite a bit of wear and tear from his childhood daredevil tendencies)Whilst coming out of anesthesia, and as his bones and cartilage are healing, I was instructed to provide him with “light food” such as “soda pop, jello, and broth”. First of all……

Rutabaga, Green Apple, and Butternut Gratin

I work for a family and cook for them every night and the other day I found myself standing in front of the refrigerator trying to decide how to use the random ingredients available to me. The pesto burger stack was born….
