Skillet Shrimp and Rice

Share

This is one of those meals that I throw together when company comes by at the last minute.   I usually have most of the ingredients on hand, with the exception of the chorizo or kielbasa, but living in NY, we have the privilege of having markets every couple of blocks.

When I was growing up, […]

Grilled Salmon with Sweet Corn, Tomato and Avocado Relish

Share

In my book there’s nothing better than fresh vegetables in the summertime.   One of my favorite things to do is to stop at a farmstand, see what’s fresh and then figure out what to do with it.  At this time of year you can’t beat the fresh corn.  It’s incredibly sweet and delicious.

The other […]

Grilled Tuna with Herbed Aïoli

Share

Want a great tuna steak recipe?  This one is terrific.   I make it using a grill pan in my kitchen, but the recipe is designed for cooking outside on a grill.  Either method is great.    It’s one of my favorite recipes because it’s really quick, healthy and delicious.

A couple of months ago I […]

Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Share

Sometimes I want something a little different for dinner, so occasionally I’ll throw together a quiche. Paired with a side salad, it makes a nice dinner. This quiche is definitely robust enough to be served as a main dish because it’s full of eggs, cheese, bacon and spinach.

We are hosting a […]

Linguine with Shrimp Scampi

Share

Last Sunday, my brother participated in the New York City Triathlon. It was an amazing event to watch. His swim leg began at 6:08am and he had his fastest swim time ever because of the current in the Hudson River. Thank goodness the swim was fast because the river […]

We have two of my husband’s friends from college and their three boys visiting from Atlanta for a week. We’re having a lot of fun. The other day we went downtown to the Statue of Liberty, then walked around Ellis Island and finally walked to the World Trade Center site. […]

Crispy Southwestern Baked Chicken

Last night, our good friend Harriet came over for dinner.   It’s always so great to see her.  She’s a great photographer and we always get great snapshots of the boys from her after a visit.   In addition to taking pictures of the boys, I asked her to take a couple of shots of dinner, […]

Chick Pea Soup

Share

The picture above definitely doesn’t do justice to this soup. I stumbled upon this recipe when I attended a gathering of “mothers of twins plus one” a couple of years ago. The meeting was at an apartment on Riverside Drive in the 90s and it was gorgeous! At one […]

Asian Salmon Burgers

Share

I LOVE Costco, although I find that I’m not a great shopper because I can never make a list and stick to it. I’m always tempted by the tasting stations at the end of every other aisle. It’s really bad when I shop when I’m hungry. I’m almost guaranteed to come […]

Cheddar Corn Chowder

Share

When it’s cold outside, I don’t think there’s anything better than a warm, hearty bowl of soup or chowder. I make this recipe a couple of times each winter because I enjoy it so much. It makes quite a bit, so I typically end up sharing it with friends or freezing some […]
