Oven Roasted Potatoes and Vegetables

Oven Roasted Potatoes and Vegetables – A wonderful side dish of roasted vegetables that only requires one secret ingredient for seasoning! You guys! I’m so stinkin’ mad right now. And it’s not just because we’re stuck in the house because of this blizzard (but that isn’t helping my mood either). Last night, we devoured these […]


How are those New Year’s resolutions going? This soup will help anyone who’s fallen off the wagon, or who never got on the wagon, get back on. It may not be a magic bullet for weight loss, but it’s a good start. I’m not trying to lose weight but I use the soup as a […]

30-Minute Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Chowder

A snow storm in NYC yesterday and I missed it. I’m SO bummed. Being in the city when it’s snowing is magical.

Smothered Green Beans
