Elbert says "Naan bread is delicious and chewy." Hope it works for you!

Janel found this recipe and it is very simple and tastes great. It might not be good for you. We have made it a few times using left over chicken from a rotisserie chicken from the day before.

"This the beet soup recipe from Pat & Mel. We had sour cream as a garnish there and I used yogurt here. Both were good." -Mom

Easy to prepare in the slow cooker and since it takes 9-10 hours to cook on low, its a great recipe for when you will be away from home all day.

Honey-Ginger Autumn Stir Fry

I biked over to the local farmer's market today and picked up a bunch of fall/winter produce without a real plan for what to do with it all. This was an original creation and has a lot of different "wintery" flavors blending together.

Bruschetta Fresca

This was the suggested pairing to the Mushroom Pork Loin in the supermarket sample booth. Both were very good and this one doesn't take a lot of preparation.

Mushroom Pork Loin

This recipe actually originated in a grocery store. They were giving out samples and it tasted so good that I took the recipe sheet home with me and later tried it out. Suggested pairing: Bruschetta Fresca. Yum.

Couscous Roasted Veggie Melange

I got this recipe from a friend at work after she brought it to a pot-luck lunch. I like it warm or cold.


  • 1 large head of Romaine lettuce


  • 1/2 cup salad or olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, cut into quarters


We use the same basic recipe for cauliflower, broccoli, pumpkin, asparagus, or mushroom soups.  Use the desired vegetable in place of potato.  Add complimentary seasonings and herbs.  Use a milder, white cheese with cauliflower and broccoli.  Cumin seasons cauliflower.

(from "Simply in Season" cookbook)

Here is another really tasty recipe.  It called for zucchini but since our spaghetti squash is the most abundant this fall, I used it.  Dad and I both rank this to be a keeper recipe. I halved the recipe for an 8 inch glass pan, baking it at 325 for about 45 minutes as we went to Bird's Hill for a walk/jog. This is the halved amounts.

Great Northern Beans

I was at a friend's house the other day and she had a pot simmering that smelled so good!  When I asked her for the recipe, she laughed, because it was a recipe she had copied from my book.  I made it the next day, and thought I'd pass it on.

We had this at a friend's house and asked for the recipe. Danica says "Sorry for this extremely imprecise recipe. Let me know if you make it so I can perfect the recipe."

We had buckets of this at our wedding reception. Literally.
