My parents gave me a subscription to a magazine called Fine Cooking for Christmas. I have been receiving it for several years now and I LOVE it! It’s one of my favorite cooking magazines. One recipe is better than the next.
This recipe came from the latest issue and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it […]
I made this as an appetizer yesterday for our dinner guests. I finally received some tomatillos from the CSA (not too many were distributed this year) and this seemed like a perfect way to use them. This salsa has a nice lingering burn to it, but it wasn’t too hot. The heat will depend upon […]
We arrived on Shelter Island yesterday early evening. It was gorgeous outside, the sun was shining and it was hot, but not too hot. I had a hankering to turn on the grill, but since it was getting late, I wanted to make something simple that wasn’t going to take me until midnight to prepare. […]
Fresh cilantro, mint and lime have to be three of my favorite summer flavors. Add them to quinoa and they make a tasty side-dish. At least I think so. I can’t say my family agreed.
When I served this the other night, I expected that my husband and I would be the only ones to eat […]

This is another one of my favorite recipes of the summer. The flavors explode in your mouth when you take a bite. There is really nothing better than the combination of fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden. These rolls a little time consuming to make because you have to prepare a lot […]
When the weather starts to get chilly, I’m always on the lookout for a good, comforting soup recipe. Although I hated them as a child, I now love lentils (perhaps there’s hope for my boys?) and I’m always willing to try a highly recommended lentil soup recipe. This one was […]
I subscribe to some recipe newsletters and this recipe came to me recently be email. I love a good potato salad in the summer, and this looked interesting enough for me to want to give it a try. This is currently my go-to potato salad recipe, and I love it, […]
Have I mentioned that I love Mark Bittman’s recipes? I just downloaded “How to Cook Everything” for my iPhone. I now have the whole cookbook on my iPhone with a lot of neat searching capabilities. I was in the supermarket the other day and wanted to make some vanilla […]
