Caribbean Succotash

I’m always on the lookout for interesting vegetable recipes. I recently received a subscription to Bon Appetit magazine and I found this recipe in my first issue. I love the flavor combination of all of the vegetables, and the coconut milk and nutmeg make a nice light sauce to accompany them. […]

I wanted to make a traditional chicken soup yesterday and when I was hunting for a recipe – believe it or not, I’ve never made chicken soup before – I found this recipe instead.    I actually thought it was going to be more of a soup than a stew.  I could have added more chicken […]

Roasted Vegetable Frittata

This is a perfect, quick, meatless  weeknight dinner.    I think this is truly the best frittata I have ever tried.  The flavors of the roasted vegetables really pop in your mouth.   The roasting process also makes them almost a bit sweet.   I made this on Friday night and I’m going to make another one this […]

This was the pièce de résistance of my Christmas Eve menu. I made 12 of these and it took over 5 hours to assemble them and that was with help from my dear friend Paul who happened to drop by on the day before Christmas Eve. He was immediately pressed into […]

Rosemary Parmesan Coins

Share

The weekend after Christmas we always visit my relatives in Gloucester, MA.   This year my mom was responsible for bringing the hors d’oeuvres and I decided to contribute a few things as well.   I can never be responsible for all of the hors d’oeuvres because being prompt is not one of our strengths.

I brought […]

Clementine Vanilla-Bean Quick Bread

Share

I have been looking at this recipe for the last year or so and decided to make it the other day. I had a lot of clementines in the refrigerator and the boys weren’t eating them fast enough, so it was a perfect time to try this. It is like a […]
