Slow Cooker Meat and Veggie Lasagna

Slow Cooker Meat and Veggie Lasagna

Slow Cooker Lasagna is a very versatile dish. This version has lots of added vegetables and makes a meal by itself. Unfortunately, Baker’s Man demands garlic bread with all of his “Italian” dishes. There’s nothing traditional about this lasagna, but because it’s made in the slow cooker, dinner is ready when you get home. There’s quite a bit of assembly, but you can assemble this […]

Vegetable Kabobs

Vegetable Kabobs (Or is it Kebabs?)

Vegetable kabobs are something that I’ve made before, but it wasn’t something I ever really considered as an entrée prior to beginning our 30 days of vegan.  I’ve made veggie kabobs before, but usually as an accompaniment to a meat entree.   As the month progressed, and we had some warmer days, I longed to make dinner on the grill.  The only problem was that […]

Country Zucchini Casserole

Country Zucchini Casserole

Country Zucchini Casserole is a great way to use up that abundance of zucchini that is almost always prevalent, at some point, during every home gardeners summer.  I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for new ways to use up the zucchini harvest from my summer garden.  Most years, I have a bumper crop of zucchini. The best crop I ever had was […]

Italian Style Tilapia

Tilapia del Estilo Italiano

Italian Style Tilapia is another sheet pan dinner, but in my case, I prepare it in a 9X13 inch pan.  This recipe is very simple.  The ingredients are layered in a prepared baking pan before being placed in the oven and baked.  The best part is that the Tilapia is baked from the frozen state, so it’s a great dish if you’ve forgotten to thaw […]

Simple and delicious Italian Style Squash

Italian Style Squash

This is a simple and delicious recipe that can work with any summer squash.   The taste is amazing while only using simple ingredients.  The best thing is the ingredients are easy to find, inexpensive to purchase, and the whole pan is ready in about 30 minutes.  What more can you ask for a delicious vegetable side dish?  

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Perfect Grilled Vegetables

Simple to make, grilled vegetables are loaded with the flavor of summer.  These vegetables are extremely versatile, and depending up on your choice of seasoning, they can be made to be the perfect accompaniment to a variety of meat entrees.   Of course, there is nothing quite as delicious as these grilled vegetables, so you’ll want to eat them by themselves, too. Since I was […]

Garden Vegetable Soup and a couple of jars for lunch

Garden Vegetable Soup

You may be asking yourself why I have a vegetable soup listed during my 30 days of beans.  If you’ve looked at the photo, you’re probably thinking that you don’t see any beans in the soup, and you’re right.  There are no beans added to the soup, but the broth it is made from is that quart of ham and bean broth I saved from […]
