OMG Radishes – Balsamic Sauteed Radishes

OMG Radishes – Balsamic Sauteed Radishes

| July 21, 2007 | 7 Comments

When I saw these two posts on radishes over at Kalyn’s Kitchen, I was intrigued but not driven to make them. But over the next few days, this one called sauteed radishes with vinegar and herbs remained on my mind. And when I say it remained on my mind, I mean I was virtually obsessed […]

Kitchen Sink Mai Fun

Growing up, meals were pretty simple. My grandmother favored menus with fewer ingredients and less fuss. Pork chops cooked in sauerkraut, or bratwurst, knackwurst or any wurst for that matter, were favorites. Sometimes we’d have lamb chops or a simple beef stroganoff (did I spell that right?). But if were really lucky, she would spend […]

Beer Steamed Clams

Last week, we relaxed by the Connecticut shoreline. It’s something I have done summer after summer since I was a baby. And it’s something that I hope Will looks back on with fond memories when he’s an adult, just like I do. Some things have changed since childhood though. For instance, whereas my grandmother used […]

Blood Orange-Citrus Marinade for Grilled Chicken

Blood Orange-Citrus Marinade for Grilled Chicken

So, since the blood orange season is pretty much over and my attempts at making a blood orange vinaigrette will surely take several more attempts, I decided to set that aside for now and use my last blood orange for a special marinade for grilled chicken. See, Kalyn over at Kalyn’s Kitchen has been grilling […]

Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers . . . mmmm!

Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers . . . mmmm!

| January 23, 2007 | 9 Comments

My poor family. They are always my guinea pigs when I experiment with recipes. Some, like this one, turn out great and end up on the blog. Others, like a tragic butternut squash casserole I made for Thanksgiving nearly four years ago plague me. They won’t let me forget the poorly conceived, over sweet dish […]

Mmm, chocolate dipped pretzels. These could quite possibly be the easiest things I have ever, ever made. Seriously. And of all the treats I made to give away this season, they got the biggest wow. Go figure. How did I do it? It all started with a bag of pretzel rods (be sure your bag […]

Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms (Lobster Recipe)

| December 26, 2006 | 7 Comments

Tender baked mushrooms are stuffed with a buttery lobster filling in this delicious appetizer recipe. Growing up, I spent every summer on the Connecticut shoreline. The days were filled with sand, swimming and lots of seafood. Naturally, I adore everything from salmon to shrimp to lobster. But whereas the lobster of my childhood was always […]

Review: Trader Joe’s Brownie Truffle Baking Mix

Review: Trader Joe’s Brownie Truffle Baking Mix

| November 6, 2006 | 0 Comments

I was at Trader Joe’s not too long ago and decided to pick up their Brownie Truffle Baking Mix. I know. Boxed. I don’t do boxed, right? Well generally no, since boxed mixes tend to have more ingredients than I am comfortable feeding my family. Nonetheless, I decided to have an exception since I had […]

Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

| July 29, 2006 | 4 Comments

Kale. Even the word is foreign to me. I grew up in a household where vegetables were of pretty simple varieties – corn, peas, green beans and the occasional zucchini. Brussels spouts were a delicacy and any lettuce other than iceberg was certainly special. I had a feeling there were more vegetables out there, but […]

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am not a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. Really. I rarely touch them. So you can imagine my surprise when that was exactly what I wanted – no craved – last week. It must be the hot weather getting to me…or the medicine for the bronchitis (yes, ladies and gentlemen, I managed to […]
