This meal was surprisingly delicious. There’s something about the creamy sauce on the vegetarian enchiladas paired with the savory cabbage slaw that makes this meal comforting and delightful. I was skeptical when I made it because it doesn’t call for any spices or strong flavors like garlic, onion, cumin, etc. I thought it might be […]
Fresh cilantro, mint and lime have to be three of my favorite summer flavors. Add them to quinoa and they make a tasty side-dish. At least I think so. I can’t say my family agreed.
When I served this the other night, I expected that my husband and I would be the only ones to eat […]
This is a Senegalese salad recipe which is a perfect summer side dish. The savory avocado, parsley and jalapeno are a nice contrast to the sweet mango and orange. I love summer side dishes that are loaded with flavor and involve no cooking.
The directions say to let the salad sit for an hour before serving […]
I love to find a good summer drink. This one is Mexican in origin and it’s quite tasty. They boys liked it as is and as an ice pop. My husband and I liked it over ice with some white rum. It makes a nice refreshing […]
My sister Lauren sent me a link to this recipe. I was skeptical at first because I wasn’t sure about lime ice cream (lime ice yes, but ice cream?) and I also tend not to like ice creams that are made with sweetened condensed milk, but she convinced me to give it a try. […]
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 is one of the side dishes that I served at our dinner party the other night. I have some extra cabbage, so I plan to make another batch today. It was very tasty and a nice change from traditional cole slaw.
If you decide to try this recipe, please know that […]
It was a scorcher here on Shelter Island this weekend – incredibly hot and humid – a perfect time for ice pops! I almost made the lemon buttermilk pops again, but I like to mix it up a bit so I thought I’d try something new. I liked the look of this recipe because it […]
We have so much mint in our garden that I’m always looking for ways to use it. It grows like a weed! I’ve used it in salads before, but I find that I really like it in beverages – especially in the summertime. When I made this today […]
We’re still eating up all of the fresh fruit that we have and I knew that we wouldn’t finish our strawberries before they spoiled, so I searched for a recipe that would use a lot of them all at once. I found lots of strawberry recipes, but the ones that looked most appealing to me […]
