The story behind this recipes is a girl’s trip I took. I am not sure why but I always wanted to go to Greece. I finally had the opportunity to go to Greece a couple of summers ago. The taste of the fresh feta cheese has never left my mind. I have three kids and they love pasta. The problem is I am over pasta and sauce so I decided to dice up what I had on hand and I came up with this wonderful recipe for Greek Pasta Salad Recipes .

It has become a family favorite and it is what I eat when I want to get back to my wonderful Greek vacation.
In an attempt to find more recipes with eggplant since they grow in such abundance I came across this one and decided to give it a try since it is both gluten free and dairy free. This eggplant salad recipe with lentils is very easy and looks stunning on your table. It is supposed to be a side but I served it as dinner since it was filling and we often eat salads for dinner. You could add grilled chicken also marinated in the balsamic marinade.
My step dad used to always brag about being The Real McCoy. I guess technically it was true since his last name was McCoy but he took it a bit far. He was always proud of his Irish heritage and incorporated Irish tradition into any occasion possible. You can only imagine how St. Patrick’s Day went down around our house. Irish Soda Bread was always a staple on St. Patrick’s Day as was Irish Coffee on New Years. He was the only father I knew so I try to continue these traditions with my family.
I was going through one of his old recipe boxes last week trying to plan out our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and happened upon his Irish soda Bread recipe. He always took so much pride in making this traditional Irish bread so I wanted to do the same. I wanted to make something that would match his Irish Soda Bread in flavor but still be mine.
When my step dad made the Soda Bread he used a traditional recipe with only 4 ingredients. His recipe makes an amazing bread but I like a little more depth to mine. I added in a few tablespoons of sugar and some raisins to make a bread my entire family will enjoy. The sugar and raisins can be easily omitted for a more traditional Irish Soda Bread.
If you’re looking for something easy and tasty for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration this Irish Soda Bread is for you. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
The hills are alive with the sound of music or maybe that is just me humming. I am not sure why a vegetable I used to hide under the table makes me so happy now. I remember rolling my brussels sprouts deep in a napkin. I would fold it in there and make the cough sound. It would fly into the napkin, and I would crush it as I tried to not let on to the destruction of the sprout in my fingers. What changed?
Why do I love brussels sprouts now?
I found a way to roast them and pair them with some of the sweetest and most savory flavors you can imagine. When you smell this side dish, you will think let’s just forget about dinner and dive into these.
When I make this recipe for my husband, I just leave out the cheese since he can only eat gluten free, dairy free, and egg free recipes. I also put the nuts on the side for my daughter. You see making dinner is always a game of who can eat what. This recipe is a fall favorite, and I dare say my youngest begs for it. I call that a win!
Lobster is one of my favorite seafood that’s why I will never let a great lobster recipe pass without trying it. This Lobster Rangoon Recipe is a winner! It’s super tasty and way better than what you can get from restaurants. Best thing is by making it at home you save a lot of money because lobster dishes can be expensive at restaurants.
