Restaurant Style Salsa4

Why have I waited so long to discover how easy AND inexpensive it is to make Restaurant-Style Salsa at home, by simply using your blender?!

We love Fresh Tomato Salsa in the summer when the tomatoes are abundant and delicious.  But frankly, I’m not willing to pay for over-priced, not all that tasty, supermarket tomatoes during the winter months.  Instead we turn to our freezer where we’ve got Homemade Tomato Sauce and to our pantry where we always have canned tomatoes on hand.

Chicken Cacciatore over Spaghetti Squash

I’ve been itching to make Chicken Cacciatore but sadly one key ingredient stood in the way.  Green bell peppers and I just can’t seem to get along.  Same goes for cucumbers.  Two ingredients you’ll rarely see included in a recipe on Lemony Thyme.  However, an Eat Out of the Fridge/Pantry produce drawer discovery changed everything.

Sausage & Thyme Cassoulet

I made a really good Sausage & Thyme Cassoulet.  I filled it with spicy Italian turkey sausage, carrots, sweet potato, kale, onion, tomatoes, garlic, and lots of fresh thyme.  A nice slow cook turned all those flavors into the heartiest of healthy meals. Continue reading »

I found this yummy Sausage & Fennel Stuffed Pork Roast recipe in my December Food & Wine magazine.  I’ve become a big fan of fennel, especially when combined with fresh herbs and savory aromatics.  It was the stuffing that hooked me on this recipe from the start and the end result was absolutely delicious.  Continue reading »
