Thai Spicy Shrimp Buddha Bowl

I don’t think I’ve told you about my 2015 Challenge.  My Healthy Choices walking buddy Bethany and I signed up to walk a combined two thousand fifteen miles in 2015.  That’s five point five miles per day together or two point seven five miles each.  every day.  for 365 days.

All that walking during our lunch hour, makes these girls hungry.  I’m proposing Spicy Shrimp Thai Buddha Bowls all around. Continue reading »

7 Layer Hot Italian Dip | LemonyThyme.com | #gameday

We started a tradition two years ago that I think will continue for many years to come. Every other month, beginning on Christmas Day, we deliver my mom and dad in-law…

A bottle of red, a bottle of white
It all depends on your appetite
We’ll meet you any time at all
With our appetizer and wine house-call.

Yesterday we delivered 7-Layer Hot Italian Dip along with a bottle of red and white Italian wines.  We stepped outside the comfort zone on the wines, perhaps this is a chance to discover a new favorite. Continue reading »

Caramel Pretzel Toffee Bars

I struggled with what to call these heavenly bars. I kicked around a few ideas.  Pretzel Toffee Bars.  Chocolate Coconut Layered Love Bars.  Magic Bars.  Seven Layer Bars.  Toothachers Met Their Match Bars.  Truth be told…they are a casserole with a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  A dessert casserole.  I’m not sure anyone would click on a recipe called dessert casserole.

Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks | LemonyThyme.com | 1 WW Pts+ each.

I had this vision of presenting a big bowl of Cream of Tomato Soup with Basil Pesto & a side of Mozzarella Dunkers aka Baked Mozzarella Cheese Sticks.  You know the scene, a gorgeous bowl of tomato soup with a side grilled cheese sandwich.  One glimpse and you’re committed.  The epitomy of comfort.   Continue reading »

Homemade Tomato Soup

All my favorite soups begin the same way….with a classic Mirepoix (onion, carrot and celery).  For our Cream of Tomato Soup, the mirepoix is primarily a flavor enhancer.  In the end it’s pureed, but I couldn’t help but leave some texture in our creamy bowl of comfort.  Continue reading »

Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Tuscana

Sausage & Potato Soup with Spinach & Bacon could be the cousin of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana.  That however, was not at all my motivation for making this new recipe.  Did I tell you the story of how we scored 30+ pounds of bacon and sausage??  Can you imagine the delight of B (affectionately known as Bacon Boy) when this text message hit my phone.

Kung Pao Chicken Soup

I took a popular Chinese Take-Out dish and turned it into a healthy make at home meal.  Our Kung Pao Chicken Soup is not sodium or MSG laden.  Instead it’s packed with fresh aromatic ingredients and some classic Asian flavors. Continue reading »

Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread from LemonyThyme.com

Let me talk quickly.  We are currently experiencing unseasonably cold temps with wind gusts in the….well below our comfort level.  My computer has been off and on again with power outages and server issues.

Carrot Cake Breakfast Bread served with hot comforting coffee makes ‘unseasonably’ seem novel. Continue reading »

Chili Gumbo

I took yesterday off from work to cook.  That was the sole purpose of my day and I was in heaven.  I’ve shared often that my work family loves to eat.  In fact, everyone either loves to eat or loves to cook (or both).  Which makes for some great special occasion spreads.  Today we celebrated Mardi Gras with a giant pot of Chili Gumbo and a platter of Mardi Gras Wings.  It was a good day.
