I made this dinner the other night in 30 minutes. No kidding. It was really quick. That said, I started with shrimp that had been deveined and shelled, so that was already taken care of. These days, I only buy shrimp that have already been cleaned and shelled. Costco sells them frozen in 2 pound [...]
We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.
I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a [...]
This is my new, favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. I could eat this every day for a week without getting sick of it, and I almost have, considering I made a lot of it and the boys won’t touch it. It’s great fresh from the stove, and it’s great as a leftover as well. When [...]
I made these the other night and they were delicious. I almost made them two nights in a row, they were that good. I make another version of chicken roll-ups that are pan fried. These are slightly different because they are breaded and baked. I was surprised by how nicely these roll-ups browned in the [...]
My parents gave me a subscription to a magazine called Fine Cooking for Christmas. I have been receiving it for several years now and I LOVE it! It’s one of my favorite cooking magazines. One recipe is better than the next.
This recipe came from the latest issue and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it [...]
It’s a cold and rainy night in NYC. A good night to stay inside. It’s the kind of night where I’d get a roaring fire going if we had a fireplace. I’ve mentioned before that one of my sons won’t eat meat because he can’t stand the thought of hurting an animal, so we’ve been [...]
This meal was surprisingly delicious. There’s something about the creamy sauce on the vegetarian enchiladas paired with the savory cabbage slaw that makes this meal comforting and delightful. I was skeptical when I made it because it doesn’t call for any spices or strong flavors like garlic, onion, cumin, etc. I thought it might be [...]
Guess what I got for Christmas? A pressure cooker! This past fall, I read about the resurgence in popularity of pressure cookers. They sounded a lot more appealing than the one my mom used when I was growing up. She used hers fairly frequently and it had a valve on top that made a terribly [...]
If you like a meaty, cheesy, hearty lasagna, this is a terrific recipe. I make it annually on Halloween when some friends come over with their children for trick or treating. I also make it when I want something I can make in advance to serve a crowd. I have been making it for years, [...]
This is a perfect Thai-inspired weeknight meal. The preparation is quick and the result is delicious. I love almost anything with coconut milk and cilantro, such a great combination. I served this over brown rice which sopped up the sauce nicely. My husband loved this. Boys wouldn’t go near it.
