Food from my garden, this week in fail

With oodles and oodles of squash and zucchini from my garden, we’ve tried a few “new to us” recipes lately. Some were good, some were not. This one, from Paula Deen, was not a winner. The flavors did not work well together, no one wanted a second helping, and we tossed the remainder. I made …

Baked Squash Casserole, food from my garden

Squash casserole is one of my favorite comfort food dishes. When I was a teenager, my Mother and I would go to a restaurant called “The Black-eyed Pea” and order veggie plates. Plates full of broccoli rice casserole, fried okra, cheese-y broccoli soup and the most amazing squash casserole. It was one of our favorite …

Food from my Garden

This is the 2nd bunch of squash I’ve gathered. Meet Quasi-mato. He’s a happy little tomato with a hump. Quasi-mato is hanging out on my window sill in hope that his hump will ripen. Later this week I’ll have a squash casserole recipe for you. It’s vegetarian friendly, but not a vegan recipe.

Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk

We’re not dairy free at my house, but we’ve got family members who are dairy, gluten and soy free. Trying my hand at Almond milk, well it just made sense. Making your own almond milk takes some time, but most of that time is soaking time. The “milking process” was not that lengthy, once I …
