Sometimes it's just too hot to eat hot food. Here's a good base for some pasta salad that is super flexible. Adapted from THE Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.

2 cups cherry tomatoes

1 teaspoon sugar

8 oz pasta (gnocchi, rotini, bow ties, tortellini or penne)

1/4 cup red...


I found this potato soup recipe on Pinterest via Ma Nouvelle Mode and had to try it out. If you enjoy creamy potato soup, this is the way to go. I use vegetable broth, cause I like my soup to be vegetarian, but the recipe called for chicken. Do what makes you happy. I...


I've never made a butternut squash before today! But I had great success. Because I was experimenting, I made two batches, one sweet and one savory. Preheat the oven to 350˚. Cut the squash in half, use a grapefruit spoon to get the seeds out then get a sturdy peeler a...


I'm not a huge fan of vegetables. These acorn squash were pretty good, though - something I would eat again. I found the recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.

1 medium acorn squash (about 1.25 pounds)

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter or m...


I found this recipe on the Kraft Foods website a long time ago and it as been one which I have enjoyed making for years. It's really easy, and sounds weird, but is really tasty. I add the chicken after, so mine can be vegetarian and his can have some protein.

2 chicken...


Next time you decide to make ravioli, finish the recipe this way:

Mix the pasta and sauce together. Put in an oven-proof pan. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top of the pasta - I used two cheese sticks which I tore apart. Place under the broiler for 5 minutes.

It's not heal...


A few years ago, I found this recipe for potato soup in, " Where's Mom Now That I Need Her?" Great book for cooking in the dorms, or just if you are a lazy cook, like myself. Because I love cheese and though the recipe was a bit small, I changed the soup a bit, but it...


I had these many Sunday nights during craft time. They're great served with fish and veggies - or how I typically have them, with store-bought frozen eggplant parmesan. Delicious. If you aren't a fan of garlic (really?) you can omit the garlic and parm and just enjoy s...


This is my dad's recipe. When he married my step-mom, he taught her to cook it for the family. They make theirs with meat (mine has vegetarian replacement) and I serve mine on potatoes with sour cream. Between sloppy joes and mac and cheese, my comfort foods are covere...


This is the salad I make every time I entertain - or just for dinner.

Romaine or spinach

Strawberries, apples or pears

Blue cheese

Cherub tomatoes


Pecans (even better with old-fashioned roasted pecans)

Balsalmic vinaigrette dressing
