  • Slow Cooker Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana : While it’s definitely a fall and winter favorite, we enjoy this soup year round.  It’s so flavorful and filling and is the best kind of comfort food.
  • Tuxedo Bow Tie Pasta Salad : is the perfect pasta salad for picnics, potlucks and gatherings. I’ve made this without the mayo, using the artichoke marinade in it’s place, and it was equally fabulous and well received! Best served well chilled.
  • Creamed Peas and Potatoes : Is a dish that was enjoyed for many years, especially by farmers or anyone with a garden that found that the new potatoes and garden peas were ready for harvest at the same time. It has not been as popular in recent years, probably because of the “creamed” in the name.
