We’ve been having a summer vegetable shortage. To be honest, I don’t find that surprising and I hadn’t even noticed since we’re still in the middle of winter. I don’t ever buy summer vegetables; I grow them. If I did buy summer vegetables I would buy them…

Yes, I know….. It should be Chicken Cacciatore, but I had pork chops thawed so this is what we had. Most meat doesn’t come in packages suitable for 2 people. As I am already buying more than I need I normally buy big packages when they go on sale then…

I’m trying to convert all of our favorite classics to the slow cooker this winter. Everyone should have a cold weather project and this is mine. Normally, I marinate the beef for a few hours before cooking. As it was going to cook slowly for hours I…

I know spinach is not a traditional filling for enchiladas. Consider these ‘alternative enchiladas’. Actually, no…. I just changed my mind. Many people think that black beans, jalapeño peppers and avocados are classic enchilada fillings. They are…
