This is my favorite dish of the summer. I made it many times once corn season started. Yesterday I found some beautiful corn at the farmer’s market so last night I made the just sweet corn polenta as a side dish. My Aunt Sylvia loved it so much she had three servings! I’m sorry that [...]
Here’s a recipe that I found on Mark Bittman’s website. I’m always looking for good vegetarian/vegan recipes because we’re trying to eat less meat and because of our friends’ dietary preferences/restrictions. When I looked at this recipe, I thought it might be a bland vegetarian side dish, but I was willing to give it a [...]
You know I like a recipe if I make it twice within a week. I found this recipe in the September issue of Martha Stewart
and made it while I had access to a grill. In the Northeast, this is a great late-August, early-September recipe when eggplant and delicious tomatoes are in season.
I love to [...]
Don’t let the name turn you off and don’t let the photo fool you. This is one of the best baked pasta dishes I have ever made, or eaten for that matter. It’s comfort food at its best and it has an incredible taste, like nothing I’ve had before. I’ve made this once a week [...]
This salad is delicious, but I won’t lie, it’s fairly time-consuming to make. There are lots of steps, lots of chopping and quite a bit of time needed. This is not something you’re going to throw together on a weekday night after work, unless you’re planning to eat it the next day.
I found this recipe [...]
I received a single eggplant from my CSA last Saturday. My sister Gail was visiting and she told me that she had recently made eggplant stacks, so I decided to give them a try. I also remembered seeing an article earlier this summer in the NY Times about different ways to grill eggplant. You can [...]
I have made this twice recently for dinner parties and everyone loved it. The first time I made it, my girlfriend asked if she could take the leftovers home, she liked it so much. This recipe is great for a crowd. It’s easy to make, and it’s also easy to double.
Growing up, we always got to choose our birthday dinner and dessert. When I was younger, I would always choose Chicken Divan. To this day I still love it, although I don’t make it much. The recipe my mom followed called for sauteed chicken breasts served over a bed [...]
I made this salad with some fresh eggplant from the CSA. It isn’t the prettiest salad to look at, but boy is it delicious. I love the combination of flavors. It’s a perfect summertime salad because it’s delicious, fresh and very easy to make.
Instead of brushing the vegetables with [...]
I had an eggplant from the CSA that needed to be used. I didn’t get enough eggplant to make an eggplant parmagiana, so this recipe was perfect. We had some friends visiting us from Atlanta this past week and I served this as an hors d’oeuvre before dinner the other night. We gobbled it [...]
