Here’s a recipe that I found on Mark Bittman’s website. I’m always looking for good vegetarian/vegan recipes because we’re trying to eat less meat and because of our friends’ dietary preferences/restrictions. When I looked at this recipe, I thought it might be a bland vegetarian side dish, but I was willing to give it a [...]
This was last night’s dinner. My husband loved it, and he’s not a huge salmon fan. The sauce did it for him. It’s a very tangy, mustardy sauce and it turned him into a salmon-fan last night. I found him putting the sauce on his broccoli too. I loved the poached salmon, but the sauce [...]
This is definitely a meal you can make on a busy weeknight. Cooking the chicken is what takes the longest, and you can get that done pretty quickly, especially if your chicken breasts are thin. I actually recommend that you buy thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts for this recipe, or if you don’t buy those, [...]
I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, [...]
This has become a weekly staple in our house since tomato season began in August. This makes a great side-dish, and can also stand on its own as a vegetarian main course. I love to eat one for lunch as a left-over. It’s just the right size to be filling enough, but not too much.
You know I like a recipe if I make it twice within a week. I found this recipe in the September issue of Martha Stewart
and made it while I had access to a grill. In the Northeast, this is a great late-August, early-September recipe when eggplant and delicious tomatoes are in season.
I love to [...]
For me, there is nothing better than a summer meal that is loaded with fresh herbs. I wish I could convince the boys to agree with me, but they still don’t like the look of anything green in their food. Please do tell me that one day they’ll outgrow this.
This is a great dish to [...]
This is now one of my go-to summer chicken recipes. I have made it numerous times and each time I didn’t let the chicken marinate for nearly as long as I should have. Despite my blunder, the chicken was incredibly moist and flavorful each time. There’s something about letting boneless chicken breasts sit in coconut [...]
Well, this isn’t the best photo, but these burgers are really terrific! They’re one of the best veggie burgers I’ve made in a while. They’re big on flavor and they have great structural integrity. They taste Italian. The relish is also a tasty addition.
I made these the other night for dinner guests and there wasn’t [...]
This is one of the quick recipes that I made the other day when my parents dropped by. About a month ago, we went to a barbecue to celebrate my nephew’s graduation from 8th grade, and my sister grilled some yogurt-marinated chicken that I couldn’t get enough of. It was so moist and flavorful. I [...]
