The Secret of the Palmier

The Secret of the Palmier

There was a mad rush at my desk yesterday as word spread through the office that there were cookies. Gotta love it. There is nothing better than hearing the mmm’s of people enjoying something you’ve made. That’s enough to get me cooking even more frequently to share. In truth, the cookies were for my husband’s […]

Light and Healthy Tilapia

Light and Healthy Tilapia

| October 6, 2006 | 0 Comments

I had two objectives tonight: healthy and light. I had taken out some tilapia this morning to have for dinner and had a red onion earmarked for the meal. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it all though. Hunting through my kitchen and fridge, I located some organic carrots, a home grown tomato, […]

Fall Feast-ival: Apple Cake Recipe

| October 5, 2006 | 3 Comments

So when I was trying to decide what to make first in honor of FitFare’s Fall Feast-ival, two thoughts came to mind: pumpkin and apples. These are the two fall produce items that I most associate with fall. Now I L-O-V-E pumpkin, but I haven’t worked much with apples. That, to me, sounded like a […]

I started this post more days ago then I want to admit. But believe me, it’s worth the wait. When I made these muffins, they met with a reaction I didn’t anticipate: elation. My husband was simply elated when he told me how great my muffins were. How cool is that??? He raved and raved […]

So. I picked up this leafy vegetable at the farmers market a few weeks back, brought it home, sauteed it and loved it. But I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Fast forward to last weekend at Shop Rite. I was gazing at the vegetables, taking in all the fresh greens, reds, yellows and oranges. […]

Aglio e Olio

Aglio e Olio

Much to my husband’s chagrin, I love garlic. It goes in nearly every main dish I make . . . sometimes in greater quantities then others. And one dish that I love to make is aglio e olio. It’s a classic Italian pasta that combines just cooked garlic, olive oil and pasta in a wonderful […]

What do you do when you have a bunch of excess kale sitting in your refrigerator and aren’t sure what to use it for? Make an inventive vegetable pasta, of course! This dish came to me the other night after I assembled what few things I had in the kitchen – ricotta, kale, a red […]

ARF: Swiss Chard & Kielbasa Pasta

The other day, I wrote about Kale and how it was a foreign vegetable to me until recently. Today, in honor of Sweetnicks ARF/5-A-Day Tuesdays, I am highlighting another vegetable that is new to me: Swiss chard. This leafy green vegetable is rich in antioxidants — in fact, one cup carries 52.5% of the recommended […]

Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

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 […]
