Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

Hi friends! This month’s Recipe Redux theme challenged us to make dinner-inspired recipes for breakfast. Here in Kosovo, I’ve been seeing these huge bags full of peppers at the farmers market, so I picked one up and made these delicious Breakfast Stuffed Peppers. The peppers I used were a bit small and didn’t hold the …

Clean Out the Fridge Soup

We moved again. This time to Pristina, Kosovo! This makes four moves in four years, which means I’ve gotten pretty good at cleaning out the freezer/pantry of items that we can’t bring with us when it comes time to move. The last three weeks before our move, I pretty much ate this soup non-stop. I …

Veggie Burrito Bowl

  When I first moved overseas, I thought it would be hard. I thought I’d experience culture shock. I thought I would miss my home, my house, my things, my dog. The truth is, I don’t. At least not as much as I thought I would. Except for my dog…just look at that handsome face! …

Roasted Chicken Quarters

Roasted chicken quarters only takes 5 minutes of prep time. Roast some veggies at the same temp for a super easy meal. ASL version included. Paleo as well.

When we first moved to Ljubljana and were living in a temporary apartment with limited cooking utensils, I made roasted chicken quarters. That’s how easy this recipe is. I still remember how excited I was when we first got here seven months ago. I couldn’t get over how inexpensive fresh local food is, compared to what …

Maple Mashed Hokkaido Squash {Recipe ReDux}

Hokkaido squash, a.k.a. red kuri squash or Japanese squash–it’s all over the place at the central market in Ljubljana. I had never had it before, so I picked one up. It has a sweet and nutty flavor, similar to acorn squash. Actually, I’ve made this recipe a number of times with acorn squash, so you …

Fruit Pizza

I picked two strawberries from the garden a few days ago, and the market is overflowing with first berries of the season…Summer is finally here!  Woohoo!  I love summers because they normally mean lots of hikes with the dog, working out, and just enjoying being outside.   Things are a little crazy here in Monterey. …

Poached Eggs over Polenta with Olive-Herb Pesto

The first time I ever tried poaching eggs was for this recipe.   It was also the first time I made polenta, which I have made several times in other ways since discovering how amazing it is. I am really in love with this meal, all the flavors melt together into one of those  feel …

Sauteed Radishes and Greens

Have you ever felt like you had veggies growing out of your ears and didn’t know what to do with all of them? Last fall was the first time the hubby and I signed up for a CSA (if you don’t know what that is check out my post here), and being just the two …
