Cake Pops

Share

These cake pops have been making the blog rounds for what seems like a couple of years now. I wanted to make them last summer, but I didn’t have the chocolate bits that were needed, so I never made them. Last week it was raining so we took the kids […]

Zucchini Pancakes

Share

I received a bunch of zucchini from the CSA so I attempted to make something that I thought the boys MIGHT eat. They didn’t like my zucchini galette, nor did they like my zucchini tart, so I figured I might have a chance with zucchini pancakes. I peeled the zucchini and […]

Blueberry Crumb Cake

Share

This is another result of the blueberry picking excursion with the boys a couple of days ago.  As I do with recipes that I really like, I made two of these in two days.   I love crumb cakes, and the fresh blueberries in this one are incredible.  I thought this looked and […]

Blueberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Share

We took the boys berry picking the other day and we came home with 4 pints of delicious blueberries and a pint of sweet raspberries. We could have picked a lot more – the bushes were loaded, but I wasn’t sure we’d be able to eat them all. Several blueberry […]

Mango Slaw with Cashews and Mint

Share

This is my favorite new recipe of the summer.   I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made it already.   It always gets rave reviews.   The flavors are really fresh and they just explode in your mouth.

Mango is one of my favorite fruits to add to a salad.   I add it to my other favorite […]

Peach Sour Cream Waffles

Share

I’ve been on a peach kick this summer. I bought some the other day, and I knew I’d need to cook with a couple of them because we’re not eating them fast enough. One of my sons – my best fruit eater – has developed Oral Allergy Syndrome. As a result […]

Eggplant Gratin

Share

I’ve gotten some nice eggplant from the CSA this summer.    I sliced and grilled one of them on the barbecue, which was delicious.  I’ve also made this recipe several times.   It’s a bit like eggplant parmigiana, but it’s much easier to put together.  For one thing, you don’t have to sweat or bread the eggplant.

I’m […]

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Share

My brother recently competed in the NYC Triathlon and the night before the race, I made him (and a number of his friends) a carbo-loaded dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never in my life made meatballs other than Swedish meatballs. I don’t know […]

Cheese Danish

Share

I made these the other morning and they were incredible.   I’m embarrassed to say that every now and then I love a slice of Entenmann’s cheese danish.   I don’t have it often, but I always feel like I can eat the whole thing, it tastes so good.    I now don’t have a need to ever […]

Zucchini and Ricotta Tart

Share

This recipe is now definitely part of my summer rotation. I’ve made it once a week now for the last three weeks. It’s a perfect late summer dish because there’s a lot of zucchini to be found at the farmers markets at this time of year. I tried to grow […]
