Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Sauce

When I was young, we never ate fresh broccoli. I remember eating canned corn & the frozen mixed vegetables! I started making broccoli for my own family, boiling was the way to go! Well, that’s ok if you like boiled or steamed broccoli. Then it seemed roasting vegetables became the craze & thankfully so! I…

Baba Ganoush

As with Hummus, there are so many recipes for Baba Ganoush & I pretty much like all of them. Some are made with mayonnaise which I really like but the one that I have been making lately uses tahini.  Very quick & simple, delicious & healthy. If you can not eat tahini, add mayonnaise in its…

Green Bean Salad with Pickled Red Onions

Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut

This recipe is from the Cooking New York Times. It is delicious. The recipe calls for cutting up some red onion & kale, sautéing it & adding it to the soup as a garnish. This was good, but in the future I might just eat the soup without the kale/onion. Both of these were good…
