Egg and Cheese Casserole Recipe with Feta, Spinach, Mushrooms, Peppers, and Tomatoes (The Kids Cook Monday) - Andrea Meyers

My boys and I enjoy having breakfast for dinner. I’ll occasionally whip up pancakes or waffles in the evening, but mostly I adore quiches and breakfast casseroles at dinner time.

Vegetarian Grilled Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

Vegetarian Grilled Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe - Andrea Meyers

We’ve reached that point in the summer when our garden is starting to overflow with tomatoes and peppers. Just about every meal now has peppers and/or tomatoes in a dish or a salad, and in a few weeks I’ll have to start preserving the extras. Right now I’m picking the peppers as soon as they…

Salmon and Lentil Salad with Spinach and Lemon Dill Dressing - Andrea Meyers

Dinner salads are what get me through crazy hot summers.

I can’t believe it’s already Labor Day weekend. The summer seemed to fly by and suddenly September is here. We’ve been super busy with the garden this year and have hit that time when we know there’s only a month or so left for the summer crops. The tomatoes and peppers are slowing down, the…

Lemon Cucumber Salad

Andrea Meyers - Cucumber Lemon Salad

My boys don’t agree on many things, including food. Two like tomatoes, one doesn’t. Two like corn, one doesn’t. Two like carrots, one doesn’t. Two like melted cheese, one doesn’t. (I don’t get that one at all.) But one thing they all agree on is cucumbers. They’ll eat them sliced with lunch or dinner, plain…
