Broccoli, Cheddar and Wild Rice Casserole

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This winter we’re having in New York is seemingly endless. We’re approaching the end of March, and we’re expecting snow tonight. It’s crazy.

There are many nice things about cold weather, but one of my favorites is a nice, hearty, warm casserole. I made this a couple of days ago when it was quite cold outside. [...]

Spinach Brownies

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

My cousin Erica posted a picture of these spinach brownies on Facebook last week and I thought they looked delicious. I love having something in the refrigerator that’s quick and healthy for lunch and these are just the ticket. They’re good both warm or cold, straight from the fridge.   The boys wouldn’t go near these [...]

Eggplant Un-Parmesan

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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 [...]

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Our long Trader Joe’s check out line snakes right through their fresh produce department. And when I say snakes, I mean snakes. I have never shopped in a store before where they need an employee to hold up a big “End of Line” sign. Sometimes the line to get in is around the block. It [...]

Risotto Stuffed Tomatoes

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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 [...]

Grilled Eggplant with Tomatoes, Basil and Feta

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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 [...]

If you’re looking for a classic potato salad recipe made with both mayonnaise and eggs, this is the recipe for you. I have a number of different potato salad recipes on this site, but this is definitely one of my favorites. I love the eggs and the peas in it and the dressing is really [...]

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. I wouldn’t say it’s a summer dish because you have to heat your oven to 500 degrees F, which can make your kitchen warm in the summer heat, but it’s a perfect fall dish when the weather gets nippy.

Don’t be fooled by the directions, you do [...]

Grilled Corn and Orzo Salad with Basil

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I’ve mentioned this before – I LOVE quick and easy side dishes made with fresh ingredients. It’s corn season here in the Northeast. It’s so sweet right now that sometimes I add it to recipes raw. This time, I grilled the corn, without the husks, so it got slightly charred. It added some nice flavor [...]

Spanish Tortilla with Roasted Red Peppers and Peas

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

We have had a house full of guests for the last week, so I haven’t had a chance to post anything. They are dear friends from Atlanta who come to visit every summer with their three boys. They just left and we were sad to see them go. They are HUGE fans of my cooking, [...]
