This is a versatile little recipe – Italian Seasoned Breadcrumbs. You can use these in pretty much any recipe that calls for breadcrumbs. You can also choose between white or whole wheat breadcrumbs, or combine the two for a little whole wheat boost, while still maintaining a lightly colored breadcrumb. If you will be putting these on top of anything and allowing them to brown, I recommend white or mixed crumbs. Using 100% whole wheat breadcrumbs can cause your crumb topping to look over browned rather quickly. When you’re mixing the crumbs into a recipe, use whichever crumb combination you prefer! I use these crumbs in my mom’s creamed spinach, in the sweet potato burgers I’ll be posting later this week, and in so many more recipes.Continue Reading
Recently, John and I were reflecting on our first cooking experiences. It’s amazing how difficult it can all seem when you’re first getting started. There are also plenty of moments when you feel you have it all under control, but then you make one bone-headed mistake and your dish turns to bleh…or in my case, dough. Seriously, the second time I ever made my mom’s creamed spinach, I put a cup of flour instead of a tablespoon. The result? Warm spinach dough. Let me just say…DEEEE-licious. No, not really. Ha. I wish I had a picture of that for you.Continue Reading

A few weeks ago I posted Roasted Summer Squash, Zucchini, & Tomatoes. In that post, I mentioned making sure to save your leftovers to create a delicious lunch the next day. I now give you…a delicious lunch for the next day! The nice part about these veggies is that they can be used in a variety of ways and turning the leftovers into something different is generally easy and quick. This particular lunch is just a simple, vegetarian pita, but will rock your world with its ooey-gooey-cheesiness! Continue Reading
If you’re in the mood for a little summer pasta, consider this white bean pasta! It has all of the deliciousness of a classic pasta dish (tomatoes, garlic, olive oil!), classic Italian seasoning, and the healthy benefits of the white beans and spinach!
