Mexican Lasagna

Share

I really like this recipe, and I’ve made it twice in the last week. It’s easy to throw together – it’s actually the easiest lasagna I’ve ever made – and it’s incredibly good. It’s a perfect weeknight meal for us as we strive to continue to remove meat from our diet.

Today I watched the movie […]

Chipotle Quinoa with Corn and Black Beans

Share

Ok, I think I’ve posted enough sweet recipes lately. Time for a change.

I’m on a quinoa kick these days.   I found that Trader Joe’s sells a great bag of tri-color quinoa and I’ve found all kinds of things to do with it.  This recipe is my current favorite.   My husband likes it so much that […]

Toasted Corn, Cherry Tomato, and Edamame Salad

Share

I made this salad a couple of weeks ago while on Shelter Island. At the time, I was cooking so many delicious new recipes that I found it difficult to post them all in a timely manner. Unfortunately summer corn is on its way out (at least in the Northeast) […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I went shopping to buy the ingredients for my mom’s summer pies. As I was standing in line with a basket full of fruit, heavy cream and cream cheese, the woman behind me asked me what I was going to make. I told her about my mom’s pies which are […]

Sweet Corn Gelato

Share

About a week ago, I made some sweet corn gelato. It’s served at Otto, a Mario Batali/Joe Bastianich restaurant in NYC.   It’s a recipe from Meredith Kurtzman, Otto’s pastry chef. I love gelato and I love fresh corn on the cob, which is so plentiful here in […]

Caribbean Succotash

I’m always on the lookout for interesting vegetable recipes. I recently received a subscription to Bon Appetit magazine and I found this recipe in my first issue. I love the flavor combination of all of the vegetables, and the coconut milk and nutmeg make a nice light sauce to accompany them. […]

Five-Treasure Fried Rice

Share

Recipes from the Fine Cooking magazine or website never let me down. One recipe is better than the next. My niece made this last week and suggested that I try it. A couple of friends came by for dinner last week so I made these risotto cakes and this five-treasure […]

Indian Summer Gratin with Butternut Squash, Potatoes, Corn, and Bacon

Share

This is another one of those recipes that I liked so much I made it twice in a row. It’s a wonderful casserole that can be served for dinner because it’s a complete meal. It’s also nice as a side-dish. The flavors go so well together.

I will warn you […]

Summer Corn Chowder with Scallions, Bacon and Potatoes

Share

I received a jalapeno pepper from the CSA last weekend and I didn’t know what to do with it until I came across this recipe.   There’s a farm stand very close to our house, so I was able to get 5 beautiful ears of fresh corn to go in the soup.   There’s nothing like […]

Southwestern-Style Succotash Chili

Share

We took the boys to Disney last week and I brought a stack of cooking magazines with me. They were sitting in a pile in the kitchen and my husband was threatening to throw them away, so I figured I’d read them on the plane. I got through most of them, […]
