During the boys’ winter break, we went to Disney World with family and had a wonderful time. We were a group of 15 in total. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and ate at their restaurant called Boma – Flavors of Africa twice during our stay. My favorite part of the meal at Boma […]
I found this recipe over the summer and made it for a dinner party, but we ate it all and I didn’t have a chance to photograph it. I have to say that I like this more than regular mayonnaise-based potato salads (although those are awfully good in the summer.) I love the tang that […]
Yesterday I was challenged by my CSA to share a recipe using purslane. Having never cooked with purslane before, I turned to the internet for inspiration and learned quite a few things.
Here in the Northeast, we treat purslane as a weed. In other parts of the world, like Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Mexico, […]
These don’t look like your traditional baked beans, but they taste just like them. I think it’s the combination of the brown sugar and vinegar. My Aunt Carole made these for a cookout we had in Maine a couple of weeks ago and I ate at least four servings in one sitting. Who knew baked […]
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.
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 […]
Occasionally on Fridays we have ‘Make Your Own Pizza Night’. The boys love it. I either make the pizza dough, or I buy it at Trader Joe’s. Their pizza dough is actually delicious. Each of my four boys gets to make his own pizza. I divide a pound of dough into four pieces, I roll […]
This is a really delicious recipe and it has become part of our regular dinner rotation. My husband and I both really love it. I love the fact that it’s really easy to make and that I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand. Most of the cooking is […]
This is a perfect, quick, meatless weeknight dinner. I think this is truly the best frittata I have ever tried. The flavors of the roasted vegetables really pop in your mouth. The roasting process also makes them almost a bit sweet. I made this on Friday night and I’m going to make another one this […]
This was the pièce de résistance of my Christmas Eve menu. I made 12 of these and it took over 5 hours to assemble them and that was with help from my dear friend Paul who happened to drop by on the day before Christmas Eve. He was immediately pressed into […]
