Sausage Cassoulet

It has been a while since I’ve posted a favorite recipe from Cooking Light! During the 30 days the grain-free plan, I stuck to easy-to-fix vegetables and stir fries, many of which came from Cooking Light. Unfortunately, I did not get near as many pictures and I just don’t think I can post a recipe …

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

  Trying to find new ways to eat vegetables so I won’t get tired of them is…tiring. I need to plan for 3 meals a day but a snack or two so that I’m eating every 4 hours. This is crucial for glucose balance, especially for those of us with a cranky pancreas. I love …

Grilled Vegetables with Mint

This recipe from Cooking Light cookbook Grilling  was a natural addition to a big night of welcoming the summer heat by cranking up the charcoal. I usually cook one foil pack of sweet Vidalia onions, and one separate pan of whatever vegetables I have on hand. I really liked cooking these vegetables directly on the …

Cooking Light with Farro

I’ll be perfectly honest. I have heard of farro, but really didn’t have a driving need to try it. I have a wide variety of whole grains that I enjoy and on a regular basis, and didn’t have a fire going under me to try more. But then I went and visited that food truck …
