Spinach Enchiladas


So with this recipe I FINALLY utilized the last of the enormous bag of spinach I bought. What was that? Three recipes? Four? I lost count, but in my defense when I picked up that oversized bag of greenery I was thinking at the time, “Spinach really wilts down so this bag really isn’t that…

Spinach and White Bean Stew with Red Cargo Rice

Pan Seared Pork Chop, Leftover Mash, Creamed Spinach


This recipe was a solo dinner quickie. I had Detwiler’s Farmer’s Market local pork chops and mashed potatoes in my freezer along with a large bag of scrumptious local spinach in the fridge. So I decided on a naughty dinner of old school style fried pork chops (the only way I ever ate pork chops…

Roast Red Bells and Tomato Mac N Cheese


Amy came home from Nashville, TN and raved about this amazing mac and cheese she’d had while there and so I offered to recreate it for her. The dish contained roasted red bell peppers, mushrooms and spinach. The restaurant used Campanelle which is a really pretty flower shaped pasta. I couldn’t find that near me…

Gouda Tuna Cakes


Gouda Tuna Cakes, Dill Sour Cream, Toasted Sesame Oil Baby Spinach What to do with canned tuna? Well we could go with the tired but true tuna salad sandwiches or tuna noodle casserole or we could take a moment longer and think, “How could I make something new outta’ something old?” What I came up…
