Veggie Lasagna

I love recipes that are healthy, taste good, and make a lot of food. I try to bring leftovers for lunch every day so that I have a satisfying lunch at a minimal cost that I know I will enjoy. Here is a recipe for vegetable lasagna that I love to make on the weekend – the prep and cooking time together take about an hour and a half and the result is amazing!

Vegetable Lasagna

Ingredients: 1 jar of pasta sauce 16 oz 2% cottage cheese ½ cup grated parmesan cheese 9 whole wheat lasagna noodles 8 oz grated mozzarella cheese 4 cups mixed vegetables (I like to use spinach, mushrooms, carrots and broccoli)

Scrambled Eggs with Avocado

Perfect on any morning truth be told. So easy to whip up and add a little love from your favorite ingredient.

  • A pat of butter
  • A  teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 quarter of an avocado, peeled and cubed
  • Sea salt flakes
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 slice of toast (preferably whole wheat or a nice grainy type)

- Beat the eggs lightly with a fork just until homogeneously yellow.
- Heat the butter and oil in a non-stick skillet. When the butter has melted and the bubbles subside, pour in the egg.
- As the bottom of the egg sets, push gently with a spatula towards the middle, letting the uncooked egg run underneath.

Mmm, peppers

I made some fantastic stuffed bell peppers last night and thought I would share. It’s definitely a nice kitchen project when you are in the mood to play with food.

This is for 6 stuffed bell peppers…


24 ounces ground beef – the fattier the better
3 eggs
About 1 cup of plain bread crumbs
10 sprigs of chopped fresh oregano
1 finely-sliced bell pepper
2 stalks of celery, diced very small
1/2 onion, diced very small
Lots of salt (fry up a taster or your meatball dough to make sure it has a good, salty taste)

RMCCI Introduces An Indoor Hydroponic Organic Farm

Hello Cast Men and Women!
The last five months have been so exciting. In addition to writing and designing our 8 (eight), yes EIGHT, RMCCI episodes, I transformed the official RMCCI front porch into a hydroponic organic farm!
Currently highlighting 16 vegetables and herbs and working for a half dozen more, the farm will supply RMCCI with all of the veggies in our wonderful recipes.
Even better, one of our episodes this Summer will be dedicated to teaching our viewers how to begin their own farm.

Welcome Back for Season 2 of RMCCI!

Cowboy Potato & Onions Part II (Episode 1)

The episodes concludes with Marc Hordon adding his secret sweet ingredient to the dish and shows the simplicity in cleaning cast iron. Please enjoy and meet us next week for Episode 2 of Real Men Cook with Cast Iron!

Cowboy Potato and Onion with Whatever's Green Part I

In this simple introductory episode of Real Men Cook with Cast Iron, cook Marc Hordon explores one of the most fundamental Cast Iron dishes in the history of Cast, Potatoes and Onions.
Zesting this dish is a local ruffage vegetable, the brussel sprout. The difficulty of pulling out the flavor in this vegetable while losing the hanging sour flavor is diffficult. Although Alton Brown may brilliantly suggest a simple spritz of nutmeg, Marc goes a different but culinarily equal direction using the qualities of sweetness to enhance the mini-cabbage.
