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

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Crispy Quinoa Sliders

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

These are perfect for a meatless Monday dinner. You can serve these on buns just like you’d serve a hamburger, with all the classic condiments – lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. You can also serve them as a side dish if you’re not having a meatless meal. I ate mine without a bun and with [...]

Macaroni and Cheese with Black Beans and Chipotle

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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 [...]

Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

If you like cheesecake and you like chocolate, this recipe is a winner.   It’s absolutely delicious.   I’d be happy eating a slice after dinner every night.   It’s rich though, so I’d want a small slice.

I made this to serve as dessert for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner.  I made it because both my mom and [...]
