Enchilada pie

I started by cooking strips of chicken breast on the stove with EVOO. In a separate pan, I put minced garlic, EVOO, diced zucchini squash, tomatoes, fresh tomatillo salsa, and fresh salsa. Then I cooled and shredded chicken and added both this and stove ingredients to the glass pie dish with shredded cheese! Baked at 375 for about 20-30 and enjoyed. Healthy, fresh, and delicious!

My favorite vegetables 

The key to the root vegetable melody below is to cut everything into the same size pieces. I like small cubes for faster roasting and a small crunch. Here I used potatoes, sweet potato, and butternut squash. Roast at 425, the cook time has never been the same in my experience so shuffle the mixture around every so often and use better judgement

The asparagus is simple: drizzle EVOO and salt, roast at 425 for 12 minutes

Summer squash and fruit bowl

This fruit bowl uses goat milk yogurt, peaches, banana, chia seeds and ground flax 
I picked this squash at the Lawrence Family farm in Newbergh, NY. Slice into thick pieces, heat the oven to 450, cover squash with EVOO S&P and bake until they just start to look brown

acorn squash


One of my challenges is to make meals my boyfriend will enjoy, he’s got a sweet tooth and was brought up with southern cooking. He liked this one:

Oven to 375, half an acorn squash (remove seeds) and bake until tender (my small squash took 40 min)

While baking brown 1/2 lb of ground beef and onion. Transfer this to bowl and add two strips of cooked chopped bacon, dried cherries, and eventually squash insides. Remove squash from oven and scoop insides, leaving 1/4 inch of shell. Put insides back in shell, add some butter and bake another 15.
