Rosemary and Garlic White Bean Dip -- Juggling With Julia

Happy National Nutrition month! I’ll be highlighting healthy, easy dishes all month long (nothing new there). As a special nod to this month-long celebration of healthy eating, I thought I’d shake things up and start off with a story (wait, um…) Long, long ago, in a town kind of far away, my husband and I […]

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes -- Juggling With Julia

Apparently it’s Pancake Week here. Whole wheat cinnamon swirl pancakes? Nothing wrong with that. Except that I JUST re-posted my new-and improved pumpkin spice pancakes a few days ago.

Spaghetti Squash with Basil and Parmesan -- Juggling With Julia

Today we’re talking spaghetti squash, and we’re dressing it up with basil and parmesan. It’s a bit of a kooky vegetable. If you’ve never had the pleasure, allow me to describe.

Irish Potato and Leek Soup -- Juggling With Julia

Irish Potato and Leek Soup? I don’t often characterize a recipe by its country of origin. It’s hard to peg a dish as being from this country, or that one. Traditional foods we enjoy regularly – think ratatouille, roast chicken, or potato salad - have been influenced and morphed by so many cultures, it’s hard to pin it on just one country. Of […]
