Dinner Stuffed Pumpkin

I love this dish! I think it’s one of my husband favorite fall meals as well! Which is good, since it makes a lot and we have lots of leftovers to enjoy. I saw a recipe once that for the same size pumpkin I use said 6-8 servings I have got to say those must…


Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin curry is amazing, the pumpkin pairs so well with the spices in curry powder. It makes a great warming fall dish, that’s not so typical. One of the many things I love about curry is that I can use up whatever veggies I have on hand. For the one pictured, other than the green…

So, I read on another blog about using shredded cabbage in place of pasta with spaghetti sauce, cabbage noodles?

Chicken and Tomato Tagine

We’ve kind of been on a bit of a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern kick lately, anything from Moroccan to Greek to Indian and all sorts in between. This Moroccan inspired dish is soo good and soo flavorful and fairly easy to make. Traditional it’s served with flatbread, the Easy Flatbread recipe I posted a few days ago,…
