Veggie-Hummus Sandwich

Here’s a quick classic. This one takes me back to always coveting the lunch of a vegetarian friend, who often brought this sandwich. It always looked so fresh, crisp and delicious, that I finally starting making these sandwiches for myself and they are always everything I dream of: fresh, hearty and delicious! They are great…

Summer-Harvest Vegetable Soup

As we move past mid-September, the Palouse-Clearwater region has been experiencing some hints of the transition from summer to fall. I find this a bittersweet time, because I love the changing fall leaves and their crunch and shadows on the sidewalks, the abundance of harvest season, and when it is a bit cold and rainy…

Walnut- “Pate” Sandwiches

I’ve been mentioning lately that things have gotten pretty hectic. Between crunching data for the home-stretch of my Master’s Degree, recent traveling, a health issue that had me laid-up for a couple weeks and moving, I’ve really had to use planning ahead as my friend, to create short-cuts and make things easier later- to keep us…

Saucy-Chick Salad and Wrap

Who loves moving? Moving when it is above 90 degrees, is just about as fun as it sounds. Having done this recently, I had a fun challenge coming up with quick and easy meals, while generating as little excess heat as possible. Enter – this saucy creation with some of the usual chick (-en and…

Late-summer Salsa Verde

Late summer is the…

Summer salads for those hot weekends!

We were also moving, so having something quick, easy and heartier than a standard salad was a win. (Look for our apartment “kitchen remodel” results- coming soon!) I’ve got…

Stuffed Morels

This should be my last morel-specific post for awhile. If you are interested in morel preservation and general mushroom hunting make sure you check out the previous posts. Also, this great article from WSU news, on the “Shroom Boom” of the PNW, can attest that we are not the only ones obsessed with these amazing fungi…

Fresh Spring Rolls – Carol McFarland

Here’s a quick lunch or dinner to-go if you are looking for a way to use up some of that delicious Roasted Chicken from Link’d Hearts Ranch, or Yellow pea dip. I love how quick, easy and cooling they are on a warm spring day 1 pack of (tapioca starch-based) spring roll wrappers sliced cabbage…

Broiled Grapefruit – Carol McFarland
