Vegetarian Pot Stickers

I had bought some wonton wrappers thinking I would make some perogies.  I looked up a few recipes and realized there was a lot of cheese in them and I didn't want to make something so fatty.  I decide I would give Pot Stickers a try.  They were pretty easy to make...just takes some time to make them all.  I wasn't able to get the pretty folding on the top that you usually see on pot stickers.

Simple Vinaigrette

I had some spinach sitting in the fridge and wanted to make a salad.  I found this recipe and I had all the ingredients on hand.  It's very simple to make and goes well with mild greens.  We had it with baby spinach.

Roasted Potatoes with Roasted Garlic

In my previous post I wrote about how to roast garlic.  I used that roasted garlic in this recipe.  I love roasted potatoes but I have never been able to get the crisp exterior and creamy interior until now.  Try to keep the wedges the same size.  This recipe is very versatile.  You could add lemon pepper seasoning or some herbs.  Look forward to trying them in different ways!


Roasted Garlic

We love garlic and use plenty of it in our cooking but I've never made roasted garlic.  I've seen them do it on TV and it looked very easy.  There are so many things you can add roasted garlic too.  Roasting makes it more sweet and it doesn't have that strong garlic taste.



Braised Cauliflower with Garlic and Tomatoes

We love cauliflower in our home...even the kids.  This recipe is very simple to make.  Lately I had just been making Simple Cumin Roasted Cauliflower but change is always good.  This recipe uses basil but I think you can substitute any herb.  Next time I'm going to try some fresh coriander since that is what I always have in the fridge.
