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 […]

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Share

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 […]

Thai Curry Turkey Burgers

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. […]

Black Bean and Pepper Jack Burgers

When I made them, they also looked a lot like hamburgers.  Once you bite into them though, they taste like a burrito.   These are one of the better bean burgers that I have eaten.   I still love Mark Bittman’s […]

This has been one of my go-to barbeque recipes this summer. I can’t tell you how many times I made these pork chops. Each time I had the scale the recipe up because I was serving a crowd, but they’re perfect for a crowd because they cook so quickly and the sauce […]

Vegetable Summer Rolls

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 […]

Red Lentil Soup with Lemon

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 […]

Tortillitas With Shrimp

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 […]
