Thai Pesto Potato Salad Wide

Roasted potato salad with Thai basil pesto: wow that’s a mouthful. But a truly delicious one! At the moment I have a bountiful supply of Thai basil growing in my kitchen.  Not wanting to let any of it go to waste, I’ve been making batch after batch of thai basil pesto, putting it on just about everything (and freezing the rest for later). It’s amazing paired with avocado and tomatoes on toast. And it’s especially yum in this roasted potato salad recipe.

Healthier Sesame “Beef” (or “Chicken”)

Once upon a time we used to eat Chinese takeout at least once a week and sesame tofu was always our go to. Who can resist deep fried tofu smothered in a sweet sauce and sesame seeds? So delicious, but oh so unhealthy. I can’t remember the last time we had Chinese takeout, but I still get a hankering for it on occasion. So I decided to try to make a healthier version of that old favorite. It’s every bit as tasty but so much better for me and you!

Baked Tomato Risotto

I had quite the tomato harvest this year: gorgeous little yellow teardrop tomatoes, orange cherry tomatoes, little campari tomatoes and some big red juicy tomatoes. At times we had so many tomatoes I wasn’t quite sure what I’d do with them. That’s where this recipe came in. So while there are still some gorgeous fresh tomatoes ripening on the vines, I thought I’d share it.

There is something immensely satisfying about eating with your hands. Especially when it involves an incredibly tasty filling encased in dough or between two slices of bread.  Seriously, don’t you think sandwiches, calzones, and hand pies are among the best creations of humankind? The delightful hand pies I’m sharing today are pretty good too!

Potato Salad with a Creamy Mustardy Dressing

If there was one vegetable that I’d eat three times a day every day if I could, it would be potatoes. Because I’m so addicted, I try to limit myself to the occasional treat. And one of the things that I treat myself with is potato salad.  Growing up and still, there was no potato salad that compared to my grandma’s. But I’ve been trying to expand my horizons a little, and this potato salad comes very, very close!
