Greek Oven Roasted Vegetables

Simple, fresh flavors are the best way to dress up this colorful Greek oven roasted vegetables dish. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Simple, fresh flavors are the best way to dress up this colorful Greek oven roasted vegetables dish.  When it comes to vegetables, I appreciate simplicity. It’s not that more complex dishes aren’t fun, but for everyday, simple is best. When the weather gets cooler outside, I like to make oven roasted vegetables because it’s easy, and roasting lends itself well to most in-season winter veggies. It’s fun to change things…

Ranch Hasselback Potato Casserole

Crispy edges, a creamy center, cheese, and Ranch dressing - this Ranch Hasselback Potato Casserole is a fabulous side dish for potato lovers! * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

Somewhere between potatoes au gratin and the Hasselback potato, this ranch Hasselback potato casserole is a tasty side dish with everything you love about both dishes.

This easy, flavorful chickpea salad is a healthy make ahead side dish or light lunch! This past November we took our first “official” family trip to Walt Disney World. The Godfather and I have been blessed to travel there quite a bit previously as my parents are long time DVC members and we grew up just a few hours away. Our wedding was even held around the World Showcase in…

Brussels Sprouts Salad

It takes just 10 minutes to make this easy and delicious fresh Brussels sprouts salad with flavors inspired by the Mediterranean!

I think I have more Brussels sprouts recipes on this blog than any other single ingredient. I know it’s definitely the most frequently featured vegetable, but I’ve always roasted it or cooked it in some way, and this time I didn’t, so it’s different enough to merit ANOTHER Brussels sprouts post. Brussels sprouts are wonderful in any season, even when you can’t bear the thought of turning on the oven.…

This Meyer Lemon Green Beans recipe has been updated with new photos as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project.

Pan-Seared Lemon Brussel Sprouts

It’s time for some Godmother “life musings”. If you’d like to skip this part and go straight to the recipe and food talk, please feel free. I still love you, it is okay. I get excited about brussel sprouts too. Recipe talk resumes after the next photo. I do want to take a little moment that defined the rest of my day. As I was unloading the clean dishes from our…
