There’s a wonderful restaurant nestled on the edge of Madison Square Park in Manhattan where I’m told you get to take home some delicious granola at the end of your meal. The restaurant is called Eleven Madison Park. I have eaten there several times for business, but the meals were years ago, when Danny Meyer […]
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 before, but I usually have a 2-lb bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer. I get a bag every time I go to Costco. The shrimp come frozen, peeled and deveined. They still have the tail on them, and you can choose to cook with the tails on or without […]
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 […]
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. […]
There’s nothing like a good quinoa dish and this is one that’s quick enough to make on a weekday evening. The part of the recipe that takes the longest is chopping the vegetables. The quinoa itself cooks quickly, and you can whisk the dressing together in a flash.
I thought this was delicious. I love Asian […]
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.
Made this the other night for dinner. Although it takes 20+ minutes of standing at the stove and stirring, I thought it was well worth it. The risotto was delicious. Incredibly filling too.
Risotto is an Italian dish that’s usually served as a first course. It’s never a quick dish to make, as you have to […]
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 […]
I wish I had a perpetual stash of these in my refrigerator. I’ve been eating them for lunch for the past couple of days and I truly think I could eat them every day without getting sick of them. They microwave well, they’re healthy, and nicely filling. I put some smoked mozzarella in mine, and […]
