Potato, Leek, and Feta Tart

Potato, Leek, and Feta Tart

I’m back on my meatless trip and I came across this recipe.  Now it seems a bit labor intensive which I usually balk at because if it takes a huge amount of time then I just say forget it; but, for some reason, maybe because it looks really good, I decided to share this link.  I don’t know about you but finding a use for leeks is a bit beyond my culinary gift, but this recipe calls for them which is another reason I thought I’d use it this week – think of it as a challenge.  I hope you give this a try and enjoy it!

Egg Casserole

Egg Casserole

Here is a very simple egg casserole recipe that only has four ingredients and I used it because of its simplicity.  There is so much room for improvement – adding veggies and green onions, etc.  My husband likes to make an egg casserole each weekend and takes portions of it in his lunch to work for breakfast, but who also doesn’t love breakfast for dinner!  As I said, experiment, have some fun, this is just the ground work! Serve with fruit and whatever kind of bread you would want!

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd’s Pie

I thought I would post one totally vegan recipe.  I’m all into the meatless thing, but I’m not a vegan, but that doesn’t mean that one of you isn’t.  So, with that in mind I thought I would share this recipe.  I love shepherd’s pie and thought that this sounded like a pretty decent recipe to give a try.  It uses only vegan ingredients, and seems relatively simple to do.  I don’t share complicated recipes because if I’m not willing to do it because it’s too complicated than I’m probably not alone, unless you’re a big time foodie, in which case this is probably not the blog for you.  I like simple, I know you all know that by now.  Anyway, I hope you give this recipe a try, or just substitute all the vegan ingredients with regular ones and use ground beef instead of the beef substitute and enjoy the recipe for what it is!

Ravioli With Tomatoes, White Beans, and Escarole

I couldn’t share a picture of this recipe, it was in a format that couldn’t be used, so just imagine ravioli in a bowl with all kinds of great ingredients with it! I’m still on the meatless kick.  We just eat so much meat – my husband takes being a carnivore to a whole other level!  I’ve been looking for these kinds of recipes that would be healthy and delicious enough that I don’t have to hear him complain the whole time he’s eating it.  This recipe looks really good and seems simple enough, so I’ll try it and see if my food critic will like it.  Serve it with some fresh garlic bread and enjoy!

Lighter Eggplant Parmesan

Lighter Eggplant Parmesan

I’ve been trying to convince my husband for us to eat more meatless dinners, and I think he would go for this one so I thought I would share.  I want to be healthier in mind and body and good nutrition is a great place to start to reach those goals.  So, now I’m on a meatless kick, so bear with me and let it run its course.  This recipe is super simple, especially considering it’s a Martha Stewart recipe.  Best eats to you!

V’s Fried Mashed Potatoes

V’s Fried Mashed Potatoes

I thought I would change it up a bit again this week and give you a 5 ingredient recipe for a side dish.  So, here is Fried Mashed Potatoes, which sounds super delicious.  I loved mashed potatoes, major comfort food, then frying it!  Wow, double whammy of comfort.  Anyway, it’s a simple recipe and like I said, it only has 5 ingredients because that is the kick that I’m on right now, just keeping it simple.  I do love simple.  So, make this up with a meatloaf or fried chicken and have a comfort meal one night!

Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas

Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas

So, I thought I would give you all a change and do a dessert.  Now, it’s still a 5 ingredient recipe because I’m just on that kick right now, so this is super simple and quick.  And who doesn’t like that, seriously?  We weren’t all made to be gourmet chefs, at least I wasn’t!  I hope you enjoy it, I know I will because I do love apple cinnamon anything!
