Vegetable Lasagna

I am trying to find new ways to cook Italian food without all the fat and carbs.  Everyone need to eat lighter and healthier these days.  This vegetable lasagna is absolutely delicious!  I didn't even miss the noodles.  My zucchini stayed a little crunchy which I liked a lot.  Look  how yummy this looks.  I used my favorite Guinea pigs again and got all thumbs up.  So now it's your turn to try it!

Football Weekend!

What football game are you watching this weekend?  High school, college or the NFL?  Thought you might need some ideas for your snacks during the game or a quick dinner recipe.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Cinderella Pumpkin Soup

Fall is here and so are the pumpkins.  As I was sitting on a plane looking through the October issue of Bon Appétit I saw this recipe for pumpkin soup. They cooked the soup inside of the cleaned out pumpkin.  I thought how cool does that sound?  So I had to give it a try and it was such fun to serve to my family and friends.  Really made a fun presentation.  
Thanks Bon Appetit for inspiring me to try this recipe.  (

How cool is this?  I did adapt this recipe a little and it is really delish!

Canning Dill Pickles With Aunt Carol’s Brine

Carol from Montgomery, AL kindly offered her brine (pickling solution) 
to can our pickles.  
What is better than eating dill pickles? Eating your own dill pickles! And they are so easy to make. And just so you know, once we completed our canning, we had to wait three weeks to taste before we posted this recipe (just to make sure they tasted as good as they looked).

Not to brag or anything, but our five related-but-unbiased taste testers  gave us big "thumbs up."  So here is the rest of the story...
