Creamy Curried Cauliflower Soup

I love cauliflower and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to cook it. One of my favorites is this recipe for Hot, Buttered Cauliflower Puree. Another favorite is Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice. Add this soup to the list of things that I love to do with cauliflower. This [...]

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 [...]

Sweet Potato-Sausage Soup

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This soup is delicious, incredibly satisfying and really quick to make. It’s definitely something that can be made on a weeknight and served with a nice loaf of rustic bread. Since the boys wouldn’t go near it (nothing new there), we had some soup left over and I actually thought it was better on the [...]

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 [...]

Asian Quinoa Salad

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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 [...]

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

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, [...]

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 [...]
