Dilly’s Gourmet Guacamole

It just warms my heart when my little man pulls up the step stool to prepare food with me! He thoroughly enjoys mashing up the avocados and mixing various toppings in.

And I’m telling you: food tastes better to a child when they have made it! He isn’t always the quickest or most willing eater, but if he has had any hand in making it, suddenly there is hunger and happiness. Not to mention some very cute confidence.

 

Chunky guacamole with salsa flair will keep you and everyone else coming back for more. And given all the mix-ins, you can even eat this straight up as an avocado salad.

Roasted vegetables have become a staple in our household and swayed my children as well as myself to eat certain previous untouchables. Suddenly, thinly sliced eggplant makes for delicious, smoky chips and cauliflower tastes like popcorn. Broccoli is addictive and onions are less pungent. The natural moisture that evaporates in the oven brings out a sweeter, [...]

Thanksgiving Edition: Thyme For Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Thanksgiving Edition: Thyme For Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Comfort in a big ole casserole. Herby, hearty, healthy, and more. A medley of colorful vegetables which I chose carefully to combine and they also cook at similar rates.
