Basil: Heal me.

Well, Will’s ailment has infected our whole household. For Shawn, it started on Valentine’s Day, one day after Will first became sick. And while I did make an abbreviated dinner like Virtual Frolic suggested (I did the chicken, potatoes and mini cakes and skipped the rest), it wasn’t a pleasurable meal. The only really good […]

Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers . . . mmmm!

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 […]

I have a secret. It’s actually not much of a secret so much as a disclosure. A brutally honest disclosure. But we’ll get to that in a moment. First, let me talk a bit about asparagus. Asparagus is a good source of vitamins A and C, both antioxidants. It’s also a great source of folate […]

Salsa Cruda

As promised, here is my recipe for salsa cruda. It’s got that fresh taste that goes so well with dishes that have clean tastes. It was fantastic with my black beans. I think it would also be delicious with a fresh taco salad, grilled chicken or a firm fish (like swordfish), seared. That will be […]

My son loves carrots. My husband likes carrots, and that’s high praise for a vegetable from him. And I really like them too. They are rich in beta-carotene and also contain alpha-carotene, both antioxidants that help ward off bad things for your body like eyesight loss and cancer. It’s Tuesday, which happens to be the […]

Yes, my obsession with the grill continues . . . These lovely grape tomatoes were $1 for the pint at my local Big Y supermarket this week (sorry to all the Eat Local bloggers, farm markets here have yet to open. In fact, most aren’t opening until late June/early July.) In any case, I decided […]

Can you tell I am on a grilling kick here? It’s been beautiful out this week and I have barely come in contact with my stove. It’s so nice to be able to roast my entire meal on one cooking surface. It really cuts down on dishes, clean up and time. Now if I could […]

I’ve been admiring the baby vegetables in the produce section of my local supermarket recently and finally gave into the temptation this past week, picking up a pack of fresh baby corn. I am all for eating locally, but for now I must resign myself to the grocery store for vegetables. Here in New England, […]
