Burrata with Lentils and Basil Vinaigrette

Share

This is one of my all-time favorite vegetarian main dishes. It’s perfect for Fridays in Lent or Meatless Mondays. It doesn’t look like much in the photo, but it’s packed with flavor from the homemade pesto-like sauce, and it’s incredibly satisfying. I haven’t found de puy lentils at any of my grocery stores, so I […]

Risotto Stuffed Tomatoes

Share

This has become a weekly staple in our house since tomato season began in August. This makes a great side-dish, and can also stand on its own as a vegetarian main course. I love to eat one for lunch as a left-over. It’s just the right size to be filling enough, but not too much.

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

Share

This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. I wouldn’t say it’s a summer dish because you have to heat your oven to 500 degrees F, which can make your kitchen warm in the summer heat, but it’s a perfect fall dish when the weather gets nippy.

Don’t be fooled by the directions, you do […]

Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Share

This is one of the quick recipes that I made the other day when my parents dropped by. About a month ago, we went to a barbecue to celebrate my nephew’s graduation from 8th grade, and my sister grilled some yogurt-marinated chicken that I couldn’t get enough of. It was so moist and flavorful. I […]

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 […]

Indian-Style Mustard Greens

The CSA that I belong to on Shelter Island has its first distribution over Memorial Day weekend. I’m responsible for contributing the recipes to the weekly newsletter, so you’ll see me posting a lot of vegetable recipes for the next couple of months. I love the CSA because I’m forced to cook things that I […]

Roasted Eggplant Spread

Share

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 […]

Summer Squash with Lemon and Mint

Share

On Shelter Island, if you don’t get to the pharmacy early on Sunday morning there’s a good chance you won’t get a Sunday Times.   I didn’t get there early enough this past Sunday, so I ended up with a copy of the Wall Street Journal.   I haven’t read the Journal in a long time, and […]

Marinated Swordfish

Share

My dad came into the city on Sunday and he loves swordfish, so I picked some up at the farmer’s market. We are lucky to have a vendor from the Hamptons that sells fresh fish every weekend. This swordfish was caught the day before I bought it and it was incredible.

This […]

Zucchini and Ricotta Galette

Share

Much like the tomato pie I made the other day, this zucchini galette is really delicious, and much like other recipes that I love, I’ve made it twice already in the last week.  I have extra summer squash from my CSA, so I might just make another one tomorrow.   What is a galette you […]
