    French Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole

    This French Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole is a delicious combination of tender french green beans, earthy mushrooms and crispy onions cooked in a white wine cream sauce and then topped with more crispy onions and gruyere. Making it a definite “must have” dish for your holiday table. No canned soup or green beans in this baby! I did use canned crispy onions to save time but you can make your own as well.   I used frozen french green beans because the are already blanched and more readily available in any area. If you are using fresh green beans, be sure to blanch them and then shock in cold…

    Sunday Brunch: Spicy Andouille Sausage Quiche and Roasted Potatoes

    Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

    Roasted Vegetable Lasagna is the perfect way to get those vegetables in. And it is so hearty and good, you won’t miss the meat! I always have the greatest of intentions to eat more vegetables. I mean, I really do love vegetables. So why is it so difficult to get those suckers on to the plate?? I don’t know how many times that I have gone to the store and bought a whole bunch vegetables, put them in that bottom drawer of the refrigerator, only to be completely forgotten. I think that it must be that bottom drawer. Once you close that baby, those vegetables go off into the abyss,…
