Granola

Share

Ok, I’m on a granola kick these days. A typical breakfast for me is some greek yogurt with some granola mixed in. I got sick of paying high prices for small boxes of granola. A small package of granola at my local supermarket costs $6.99. Isn’t that crazy? That’s why I decided to try to […]

Holiday Biscotti

Share

I made these for a Christmas party this year. I loved the red cranberries and green pistachios that peeked out of the cookies. Very festive. Once again, the photo does not do the biscotti justice. We snapped a picture of them right before we packed them up for the party. No time for proper lighting […]

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

Share

The recipe for this salad came to me in a weekly email full of recipes that I receive from Saveur magazine. This chicken salad is very similar to one that my mother made when I was growing up. We usually had it when company came over. It was […]

Italian Lentil Salad

Share

This is not a pretty salad, but it’s definitely a delicious and a healthy salad.   It’s so filling that it can even be served as a vegetarian entree.  I loved the combination of sweet and savory in one dish.   I enjoyed the different textures too. I didn’t have […]

I volunteered to bring a dessert, but quickly found that I was unable to locate many Mexican desserts that were well […]

Jacques’ Chocolate Mudslide Cookies

Share

I considered myself a chocoholic until I tried these cookies.   I love all things chocolate, and I like these cookies a lot, but they’re actually a bit too chocolatey.  I made them for my book club meeting the other night and I brought some vanilla ice cream to serve with them.    With vanilla ice cream, […]

Union Square Cafe Bar Nuts

Share

We had a lot of company over Labor Day weekend and consequently I cooked quite a bit, but mostly tried and true recipes.    The only new recipe I tried was for Union Square Cafe (great restaurant, by the way) bar nuts.   I thought they were really tasty.   I love fresh herbs – especially rosemary – […]

Chewy Amaretti Sandwich Cookies

Share

I love to make cookies, and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes.   This one comes from Gourmet Magazine this past January.  The picture above is a bit deceptive because it’s hard to tell how big the cookies are.   They’re small – I’d say just slightly larger than a quarter, so they’re really bite-size.  […]

Sugar Spiced Nuts

Share

So far I have posted three recipes and I’m noticing a trend here. They’re all sweet. I admit it, I do have a sweet tooth, as do the boys and my husband, but after this recipe I’m going to post something savory. I promise.

Across the street from our apartment, there’s […]
