Yam and Black Bean Chowder


I thought I would try something new to make for dinner last night. I had a couple cans of yams and decided to make a chowder.

Asparagus Spaghetti


I have heard my family speak very highly of a recipe that my brother makes when they have visited him from time to time, asparagus spaghetti. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to visit for quite a while, so I decided to call him and ask for the recipe.

My brother is a more chef-y kind of cook where as I am more the “throw it all together” kind of cook. We enjoy teasing him about being such a perfectionist when he’s in the kitchen, and how he stands over our shoulders saying “you’re not doing that right.” He could totally have his own reality cooking show as he tries to get his family to do it the “right” way.

So although my try at this recipe turned out quite delicious, I’m sure my brother’s would be even better.

Thanks for sharing, bubba! (that’s a southern term of endearment for brother)

Bacon Tomato Mushroom Quiche


A quiche is great for any meal and you can put a variety of ingredients into it.  I chose tomatoes, because my garden is producing a plethera of them right now.  I love mushrooms, so I had to throw some of those in and bacon in quiche is soooo delicious.  Be adventurous and throw your favorite veggies, meats, and cheese into your quiche.  Enjoy the recipe!
