We ate this last night for dinner. After all these years, do you think the boys shared it with us? Nope. Do you think the boys wanted to try it? Um, nope. Some things never change. I even made it vegetarian, so it would potentially appeal to my vegetarian son. No luck.
This dish was delicious […]
Looking for a new way to cook fish that won’t make your home smell too much like fish? I love fish, especially pan-fried fish, but I hate the smell that lingers afterwards. This might not be an issue if you live in a house, but I live in an apartment, and if I pan fry […]
I had some extra medium-grind corn meal sitting in my cabinet and I didn’t feel like making another loaf of cornbread, so I decided to try polenta. I had some meat sauce on hand which served as a perfect topping.
Before trying this recipe, I had only ever cooked this sweet corn polenta, made from fresh […]

I know I’ve mentioned this several times before, but I LOVE Fine Cooking magazine. I receive a subscription every year for Christmas from my parents. I end up trying several recipes from each issue and I have many magazines on my cookbook shelf with dog eared pages, waiting for me to have time to try […]
The flavor in this dish was unexpected and wonderful. The lemon zest and juice brought this dish to life. I loved it so much I had two big servings. I also had it the next day for lunch. I love a meal that makes for good leftovers.
I love this dish for a number of reasons: […]
One of my sons is a huge dairy fan. He loves milk, yogurt and things made with cheese like macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, cheese quesadillas, etc. He saw me looking at this recipe the other day and he begged me to make it. When I looked at the recipe I found that it was […]
This is my favorite dish of the summer. I made it many times once corn season started. Yesterday I found some beautiful corn at the farmer’s market so last night I made the just sweet corn polenta as a side dish. My Aunt Sylvia loved it so much she had three servings! I’m sorry that […]
