CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP

This is one of my favorite soups and didn’t realize how long it had been since I’d made a pot until I was standing at the fridge door trying to decide what to do with all these mushrooms I’d bought.  I had all the ingredients at hand so I put this together in about 20…

OKRA FRITTERS

Okra is one of those under-estimated vegetables.  People often walk by then in the produce section of the grocery store, mainly because they don’t know what to do with them!

RICED CAULIFLOWER

I live a pretty “low-carb” lifestyle.  I’ve recently added back good high fiber carbs in the form of certain fruits & vegetables.  I do love to make food that has a lot of flavor, sometimes with exotic sauces as in Asian or Indian cooking, when I do I really miss the rice.  That’s when I decided…
