Recipe Redux – Broccoli & Sausage Egg “Muffins”

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about showers, or brunch parties. It is that time of year for baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, etc.  My first thought was that my Breakfast Pizza with Cauliflower Crust would have been perfect! Instead, I came up with a dish that would be great for a buffet style brunch, Broccoli […]

Recipe Redux – Sesame Honey Cupcakes with Red Bean Paste

This month’s Recipe Redux theme was the cupcake conundrum – still a trend or over it? Quite frankly, I think the trendiness of cupcakes is waning and another dessert will be all the rage soon. Nevertheless, I decided to refresh the cupcake by adding an Asian twist, something trend reports say we will be seeing more […]

Recipe Redux – Meyer Lemon Rosemary Muffins

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is Green with Herb Envy. Even though St. Patrick’s Day is over, March is also the beginning of spring, so it is only fitting that green be featured in the theme. And while there are plenty of things to do with herbs, the challenge was to use an herb in a […]

Recipe Redux – Cauliflower Celery Root Baked Potato Soup

The theme of this month’s Recipe Redux is A Trend in Every Pot – combining soup, perfect for this time of year, with at least one of ingredients from the predicted 2013 food trends. By the way, Janet Helm has a terrific summary of all of the 2013 food trends. I love soup, and you […]

My Top 10 Recipes of 2012

I love creating new recipes for my family that I get to share with all of you. 2012 was a crazy year as I adjusted to life with 2 children and I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked for creativity in the kitchen. Taking part in the monthly Recipe Redux challenges […]

Recipe Redux – Broccoli Casserole

This months Recipe Redux theme is vintage side dishes. It took me a little while to come up with a dish to do as I come from a long line of Southern cooks and the options are many. Casseroles are a mainstay in their repertoire and one of my favorites at all of our holiday […]

Recipe Redux – Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats

  This month’s Recipe Redux is “Orange You Glad It’s Fall”? The answer is a resounding YES! Fall is my favorite season with its cooler temperatures, changing leaves and of course, football. But mainly it means pumpkin is in season, and I have a slight obsession! Actually I pretty much love all orange produce this […]

Spring Onion Casserole

  In honor of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Recipe Redux and The Soyfoods Council have teamed up for a “How to…Tofu” Recipe Challenge to encourage people to eat more soy in their diet. Soy has great nutritional benefits, including being a high-quality protein source, and research indicates that it may play […]

Recipe Redux – Mango Gazpacho

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “beat the summer heat with no cook meals.” Summer is peak growing season for many fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs. While cooking can bring out a variety of flavors as well as enhance nutrients in some cases (i.e., cooked tomatoes have a much greater lycopene content than raw), there […]

Recipe Redux – Mini Rice Krispies Treat Bowl

Recipe Redux is officially one year old! To celebrate this months theme is Small Bites – our favorite mini-portion sweet treats. You may have noticed many restaurants moving towards this trend of small portions of rich desserts, which I think is wonderful because often I only need a few bites to satisfy my sweet tooth. […]
