Basic Pasta Sauce

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 10th, 2017| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Spreads & Sauces, Vegetarian
I will start by admitting that I am not above buying store-bought pasta sauce. If it's going to be a busy day, and we're having zoodles or spaghetti squash for dinner, I might just buy a jar and heat it on the stove. I know, I could make a big

Baked Falafel Burgers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 15th, 2017| Recipes, Sandwiches, Vegetarian
My husband is a huge fan of falafel. Whenever we are able to find a food truck with street meat, he's sure to ask for extra falafel. Personally, I don't get all that excited about falafel there because it's fried. I think it loses a lot of its yummy garbanzo

Twice Baked Butternut Squash

I have written about winter squash numerous times, and I hope that the possibilities are limitless. I do adore the squash for its flavor and adaptability. Plus, it's still full of flavor in the middle of winter, unlike many other pieces of produce.

On its own butternut squash doesn't always feel

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

Many a winter I go to the grocery store, buy a tomato, and add it to a wrap or salad. Many a winter I am utterly disappointed when I take a bite of that tomato. Its lack of flavor is disconcerting, as its pale color. *sigh*

Thankfully this winter I have

Roasted Beet Terrine

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 18th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian
I have to admit our first Tapas Monday in 2017 was pretty amazing. I think it was partially because the dishes came out so well and partially because we hadn't had a real Tapas Monday in quite some time. The entire time in the hotel was a wash. After moving

Crockpot Cauliflower Mac & Cheese

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 11th, 2017| Main Dishes, Recipes, Vegetarian
This recipe was a fine hybrid of my cooking. Within this dish I was able to combine the usage of a crockpot with carb replacement. Over the past year I have been using several different vegetables in lieu of pasta. I have tried and enjoyed zucchini in place of spaghetti

Hotel Veggie Soup

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 2nd, 2016| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Soups & Stews, Vegetarian
As I learned at the beginning of our hotel stay, I need to keep others' appetites in mind when cooking. This concept doesn't just apply to hotel cooking, so I'm not sure why I spaced it when making that first hotel meal of loaded sweet potatoes. Either way,

Loaded Sweet Potatoes- Hotel Style

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 30th, 2016| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
As I mentioned in Monday's post, I'm currently living in a hotel. It's a nice hotel with a decent gym, reasonable breakfast options, and indoor pool and jacuuzi- so no complaints about the hotel. But I don't have a kitchen. I do have a fairly large refrigerator, considering

Butternut Squash Chili

I will admit it takes a special palate and an open mind to consider this recipe. In fact, when I named this recipe I considered calling it Vegetarian Chili. I probably could have convinced more people to continue reading if I hadn't mentioned that butternut squash has a prominent role

Homemade Hummus- So Simple

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 14th, 2016| Appetizers, Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Spreads & Sauces, Vegetarian
Everyone in my house likes hummus, even the kids who really aren't kids anymore. However, they've liked it since they were kids and often requested it for their lunches. On busy weeks I have been known to buy hummus at the grocery, but when I take the 10 minutes to

Recipe: Rice with Summer Vegetables

by Jane Wangersky August 26th, 2016| Recipes, Vegetarian
Some vegetables just taste like summer -- red onions, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, radishes -- especially if they’re raw or barely cooked. Even so, it can be hard to eat enough of them. There’s just something about a whole zucchini, or even a radish, that makes it seem like too much

We love lighter foods during summer, and we often gravitate toward veggies because they taste great and are great for you! One of our personal favorites is beets with their amazing health benefits and ability to be used in a variety of amazing ways. Take for example this Tangy Beet
