Celery - Celery Soup #French Fridays with Dorie

Celery-Celery Soup- simplelivingeating.com

It is the time of year to give out the ugliest root vegetable award. Will it be parsnips, goatsbeard? The hands down winner every year is always celeriac or celery root. No vegetable is as knobby and gnarly.

Giardiniera on a Muffuletta Sandwich #The Everyday Fermentation Handbook #Weekly Menu Plan

Fermentation, microbiome, gut health.... have you heard the buzz?  Good health begins in your stomach. Adding fermented food such as pickles, sauerkraut, yogurt, to your diet can improve your digestive abilities and may improve your immune system. It seems that we have been overly sterilizing our foods and getting back to eating foods that have naturally occurring good bacteria in them may help balance our system.

Slow Cooker Chicken Okra Stew #Weekend Bites

Slow Cooker Chicken Okra Stew- simplelivingeating.com

My family and I have started to adjust to our busy Fall schedule. I am making lots of slow cooker meals because two nights a week my kids are at a fencing class. They leave at 5:30 and are back home at 8:30 pm. I never know if they want to eat before or after it, so I like to have dinner ready. If I don't have something made, they snack. Even quality granola bars are not going to give them the same nutrition as a home cooked meal... so slow cooker to the rescue!

Vanilla Vegetable Salad #French Fridays with Dorie

Vanilla Vegetable Salad- simplelivingeating.com

A salad made with fresh carrots and yellow squash mixed with fresh greens just sounded perfect for a late summer meal. It was the vinaigrette that was questionable. Extra virgin olive olive, good,... lemon juice, good,... vanilla extract... odd?

Is your mac-n-cheese recipe getting to be a little boring? How about cheeseburgers... yawn? There is a way to wake up your meals. Just switch out plain old American cheese with a French cheese such as: Brie, Camembert, Emmental, Raclette, Mimolette, ComtĂ© & Fourme d’Ambert.

Chicken Curry in a Hurry #Weekend Bites

Chicken Curry in a Hurry: simplelivingeating.com

I have been in nothing but a hurry since school started after Labor Day. My husband had surgery on his arm. He is doing well. My daughter joined the Field Hockey team and both of my kids need to be driven to their fencing class twice a week... oh, yeah, and all of those doctors appointments that I put off, because who wants to go to the doctors in the summer!

West African Tuna Salad inspired from Tuna and Mango Ceviche #French Fridays with Dorie

West African Tuna Salad- simplelivingeating.com

Southern Italians have a strong connection with Africa. Physically it is so close. Many of us have African blood pulsing through our veins. My oldest sister has always had a strong affinity with African culture, especially it's dance.
