Ham and Cheese Quinoa Cakes with Ranch Dipping Sauce

heartysmarty

This recipe is a spin-off of my very favorite meal, Spinach and Feta Quinoa Cakes with Lemon Dill Yogurt Sauce. Unfortunately, my entire family HATES those quinoa cakes. How can something I love SO much be hated by everyone else in my family?! It's sad. However, I made a few swaps to make a more savory, homestyle version of the same quinoa cakes, and the kids LOVED them. It's a keeper! Enjoy!

Refrigerator Dill Pickles

heartysmarty

I planted WAYY too many cucumbers in my garden this year and I am close to cucumber overwhelm! It is really easy for cucumbers to spoil before I can get around to steam-canning them, so I have been doing the chilled method lately. Also, I have had the hardest time finding canning lids in the stores around here! It's like everyone is storing up food incase the pandemic shuts down the stores again! Anyways, this is the easiest way to get a lot of cucumbers preserved really fast--and they just so happen to be totally delicious. Here is how you

Fresh Garden Salsa

For the first time in the six years we have lived in our home, we are getting a GREAT tomato crop. I plan to bottle most of my tomatoes, but I also want to enjoy them fresh as much as I can before the season ends. With the help of a good vegetable chopper, I was able to whip this fresh salsa up in less than 30 minutes. This served as today's lunch and everyone is so happy about it. I hope you enjoy it too!

Mom’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cake

heartysmarty

This was one of my favorite Sunday evening desserts Mom would throw in the oven after church. Now that I am a busy mom myself, I understand why she loved this cake. It is a quick fix with a moist sponge, crunchy walnuts (only on half the cake, because every family has nut-haters, right?), and smooth chocolate chips. You have to eat this cake warm with a glass of milk to get the best experience. Enjoy!

Tropical Green Smoothie

heartysmarty

At first glance, my kids wanted nothing to do with this new smoothie. It was an unfamiliar color, and they didn't know what to expect from it. After explaining it was full of their favorite tropical fruits--mango, pineapple, strawberries and banana--they gave it a taste. And they LOVED it! The green spinach adds lots of fiber and nutrition--and color. What a great life lesson to be learned from food.
