Chicken, Barley, and Vegetable Soup

This has been a soup-on-repeat kind of week at our house. The COVID-19 virus hit Neil and me pretty hard. Luckily, the kids have showed no symptoms thus far (day 8). This virus feels a little different than the common cold. On day 1, I felt like I had slipped a disc in my back, but I finally realized it was the textbook symptom of body aches. On day 2 my sense of smell and taste were completely gone. I have had next to no congestion, but, alas, I can't taste a thing! All I have wanted to eat this

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

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

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!
