Lemon Ricotta Waffles

Share

Are you looking for something new to make for breakfast? I always am. Are you a lemon fan? If so, these waffles are for you. They’re a nice change from your standard buttermilk waffles. The lemon and the ricotta give them a delicate flavor and a nice texture. I loved them. The kids? Not so […]

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 […]

Braised Coconut Spinach and Chickpeas with Lemon

Share

We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.

I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a […]

Pressure Cooker Chicken Piccata

Share

Guess what I got for Christmas? A pressure cooker! This past fall, I read about the resurgence in popularity of pressure cookers. They sounded a lot more appealing than the one my mom used when I was growing up. She used hers fairly frequently and it had a valve on top that made a terribly […]

Lemon Sugar Cookies

I made these cookies to bring to a PTA meeting about a week ago and I thought they were delicious! I really love lemon desserts, and these cookies reminded me of cookies that I used to buy when I was little. There were three cookies wrapped in a plastic wrapper. I think the wording on […]

Rosemary-Lemon Sandwich Cookies

Share

The weekend after Thanksgiving my sister-in-law Barbara served some homemade cookies for dessert after dinner. One of the flavors was lemon rosemary. She asked us all to try them, then to guess what the cookies were made of. I guessed the lemon, but I missed the rosemary. They were delicious. I wanted to recreate them, […]

Barefoot Carrot Salad

Share

The other night I was looking for a quick and easy side dish – and one that I might get the boys to try. A couple of them will begrudgingly eat a baby carrot or two when pressed, so I figured this was a natural extension to baby carrots. It’s funny […]

High Tea Lemon Cookies

I love lemon and have been searching for a good lemon cookie. I used to love the ones that came in packages of three that I used to sometimes eat in elementary school. Whatever company it was made chocolate chip cookies too. These cookies are not the same, […]

Homemade Ricotta Cheese

Share

I have been very curious about making cheese for some time now.   I heard it was easy to make, but I never had the cheesecloth to make it.   I just purchased some from Amazon.   It cost twice as much as other cheesecloth on the site, but according to the reviews, I needed a very fine […]

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 […]
