I got to the Farmer's Market late today, and there were slim pickens. Swiss Chard must be plentifully growing on everyone's farm/plot, since the tables were laden with it. There was even a swiss chard cooking demonstration going on at one booth. It was too crowded for me, but I could hear the chef say something about adding a splash of either red wine or balsamic vinegar just before serving....

I've been waiting to post this recipe until I could find fresh peas at my local Farmer's Market, and today was the day.Maybe I've just come too late to get them, but I've been to the market each week for the last month, and no luck.Since my mom has been cooking out of Frances Mayes' book The Tuscan SunCookbook which I got her for Mother's Day, she's been raving about the recipes she's tried....

So, are you one of the lucky one's who presently have zucchini coming out their ears? Zucchini are one of the easiest vegetables to grow, and they are prolific at this time.

Just a few ingredients and simple steps make short work of turning a fair amount of...

Roasted Red Pepper Pita Pizza

This past weekend, I tried this recipe with some friends over to celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph. As I sometimes do, I made some changes to the original, and since the weather was nice (but cold), I decided to cook them on the grill.

They were fantastic, and, even though the rest of the food was good, they would have preferred if I just kept making this little pizzas.

Last night, I was asked to...

Lately, it's been too hot and humid to sit outside in the evenings. I guess I've just gotten too used to air conditioning:( Last night, the weather being nice, I had the chance to have dinner under my pergola with some friends. Just about everything we ate came from my local farmer's market, and it was all delicious. The red wine was a gift from a previous guest. It complemented the food...

Yesterday, I was out visiting some blogs dealing with diabetes, and there was some excitement about a new venture, D-Feast Friday's. Bloggers post their favorite recipes that are greattasting and diabetic friendly. Since it seems like the Zucchini-Corn Quesadillas I've been making lately have become quite a hit, I thought it would be a great recipe to contribute. It's also a tasty way to...

Trying It Out

I had three college students over to my house tonight to try out some vegetarian food. One suggested I make Mexican food, so that's what was on the menu. The Zucchini-Corn Quesadillas shown above were, I think, the hands down favorite. They were really, really good. I'll post the recipe under appetizers by Saturday. Maybe you'll try them out on the 4th?I've been blessed to know these guys for...
