This is my very favorite sweet potato fries recipe. Parmesan Rosemary Sweet Potato Fries are sweet, savory and absolutely craveworthy. He said it would never happen. Ever. He said that I should just accept that his tastes are what they are and they aren’t changing. He. Was. Wrong. You know. It was hard enough to […]

In terms of types of potatoes, we are pretty open. A sampler of types of potatoes: Red potatoes are […]

In the past, when I have bought leeks, they have sat in my refrigerator until they turned brown, moldy and emitted a disgusting juice that my husband would clean up. That’s the not-so-pretty truth. I’ve wanted to try them, have bought them and then haven’t done a thing with them. Sad, but true. Until now, […]

I can’t help but smile when I think of my grandfather. My grandfather was a tall man who loved airplanes and motorcycles (though an accident in his youth left his leg permanently injured). He owned a small prop plane for years and flew whenever he could. And he was dedicated to work and family. He […]

I was never a fan of baked potatoes. But last year, I suddenly developed a taste for them. Perhaps it was just that until last year I had never had a baked potato with toppings or fillings. Growing up, it was always bake, squeeze, pop on plate. Sometimes there would be a pat of butter […]

Okay, okay. I said I would post this yesterday and I didn’t. Instead, my site went down for a bit so that it could be moved to a new server and my (I’m so excited about this) new look could finally debut. I can’t tell you how much I love the new look. And I […]

These Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries are always a hit with dinner. My husband doesn’t like sweet potatoes. He won’t eat them. He turns his nose up when I mention them. It’s one of many veggies that he just doesn’t like. So the other night, I whipped up a batch of Super Easy Low-Fat Oven […]

When the first big snow storm hit New England last week, I smiled a bit and took Will outside to play while I shoveled. Of course, I am not supposed to be lifting heavy things, but someone had to do it and my husband was working. Less than 48 hours later when we got slammed […]

Over the years, I have experimented a lot with cranberry sauces. I’ve been looking for the right recipe that is different, but delightful. This is it. This cranberry sauce is about as easy as it can get. The addition of apple adds a nice (and slightly sweet) twist that really takes the sauce to a […]

I like vegetables a lot. But what I don’t like is boring vegetables — just steamed or boiled and thrown on a plate. I don’t think that does the flavor of any veggies justice. It’s just like cooking with any kind of meat or fish: sure, you could just grill it up and throw a […]
