Pumpkin Waffles

Once a month on Sunday afternoon, our family makes breakfast for dinner. We love breakfast food so much and all our mornings during the week seem so rushed, so once a month we indulge in a huge breakfast…for dinner. This is a seriously filling waffle. In no way related to any white flour, light, crispy […]

Black Bean Dip

Raising a family on a plant based diet has been a challenge at times. Early on I had to discover options for lunch without all the standard fare that I grew up eating (tuna fish, lunch meat, cheese sandwiches). Leftovers from the night before worked while my kids were very little because they didn’t need […]

Both the Italian and Portuguese cultures are strong there and we loved getting to know their favorite foods and then trying to make them. This dish quickly became one of our family’s favorites and something I could make in a pinch […]
