Broccoli soup is not only a great tasting dish, but also one of my favorite ways to get move vegetable into my diet. While I more than happy to have a couple broccoli florrets on the plate, I find them a bit boring. But cooked in this soup, along with a few other ingredients, the broccoli takes on more complexity and flavor.

For this flatbread pizza I’m using Asparagus and some caramelized onions to create a sweet and savory combination. I love making 4 – 5 different flatbread pizzas for party’s – even letting guest assemble and bake off their own. It’s a great way to get friends involved in cooking dinner, and with a bit of wine flowing, it turns into a ton of fun.
Flatbread pizza’s are amoung my favorite food to both cook and eat. They are really easy to make, and the options for topping are nearly endless. I’ll make them when I’m looking for a light meal, and they are also great for party foods, where you can make several different versions – even let people make their own.
There are a number of high quality prepared pastas on the market today, and tortellini is one of my favorite pastas to cook. This recipe is for a tortellini alfredo with fresh asparagus. Alfredo sauce is super easy to make, really just some reduced cream and a bit of parmesan cheese. But is can also be pretty heavy.
Flatbread pizzas have become a stable in my house, and this version of Mediterranean Flatbread Pizza is one of my favorites. I generally use pita bread, or nann, as the base (which saves a ton of time) and since the “sauce” is really just the toppings, it only takes about 15 minutes to make.
Spinach Salad, may not sound like the most exciting recipe in the world. But what if I add in words like bacon, bacon vinaigrette, apple, feta? Becomes a bit more tantalizing doesn't it? This spinach salad is one of my favorites for a starter course, or as a side salad for say a big summer BBQ. It's easy to make, the favors work great together, and it looks beautiful.
When asparagus is in season, I can’t get enough of it. And that includes making this yummy cream of asparagus soup. While I’ll use asparagus as my vegetable for many a dinner, the soup itself is a perfect light dinner, maybe with a simple salad or crusty bread. And it also freezes well, so that I can make large batches and pull it out throughout the year.
While vegetables can be great very simply prepared - especially when fresh and in season. However, I also love through a few vegetables together to combine flavors and textures that really make something special. This recipe for Zucchini and Sun Dried Tomato is simple to prepare, and makes a great side dish for chicken, pork and fish. Give it a try, and hope you enjoy it!
Goat Cheese is awesome just on it’s own. Imagine how great it is breaded and fried? That’s exactly what I’ll show you how to do in this recipe for a Warm Goat Cheese salad. The goat cheese is definitely the star of this salad, and brings enough body to the dish to make it a pretty substantial lunch, or starter course.
