A friend and I recently met at a local chain, Fadi’s Mediterranean, and I fell IN LOVE with their ChickPea & Avocado salad. I discovered Fadi’s years ago. I needed a quick lunch and was curious about Mediterranean food. When I walked in, my mouth hit the floor…several feet of beautifully colored salads, meats & […]

The Best Fall Lasagna Recipe

I’m not all the way sure how I feel about lasagna, if I’m being honest. Growing up, my Grandma’s lasagna was always a favorite but, it’s not really something I ever order when we got out to eat. It was, literally the first dish I ever made for my husband when we were dating. He […]

How to get the Kid’s involved in the Kitchen…without losing your mind.

By Brandi McRill / September 16, 2020 / 0 Comments

During quarantine 2020, parents everywhere had a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting with themselves. Some admitted that their kids were turds and felt waves of empathy for teachers across the world. Others were unwilling to face some facts and soaked themselves in Chardonnay and nachos. (This would be me.) Really though, almost ALL of my momma-friends […]

Who doesn’t LOVE Red Bell Peppers? They are loaded with antioxidants, packed with Vitamins A & C and seem to be a great source of B6, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and folate.

Do you know the difference between a tomato and a tomatillo? People often mistake tomatillos for ‘green’ tomatoes but in fact, they deserve a category all of their own. Otherwise known as the Mexican husk tomato, this green, or green-purple fruit, originated in Mexico and was cultivated by the pre-Columbian people of Mesoamericans. It was […]

Cushaw Squash, Corn & Pepper Soup

By Brandi McRill / July 8, 2020 / 0 Comments

For some reason, our farmers always have a crop of cushaw squash right at the end of July. Cushaw squash has fall flavor reminiscent of butternut or acorn squash but with a touch of mildness. They are rather unique looking things. The skin is easier to peel than a traditional winter squash. Peeling them exposes […]

Do you love beets??? It’s usually a resounding YES -or- an emphatic NO when people weigh in on their love (or, disdain) for beets. For some reason, people have an incredibly emotional reaction to this beautiful root vegetable. Probably more than any other veggie, to be honest. Well, I, for one, LOVE BEETS!!! Red, Golden, […]
