Asian Quinoa Salad

Share

There’s nothing like a good quinoa dish and this is one that’s quick enough to make on a weekday evening.  The part of the recipe that takes the longest is chopping the vegetables.  The quinoa itself cooks quickly, and you can whisk the dressing together in a flash.

I really enjoy omelets for breakfast and every now and then I love a frittata for dinner. I found this recipe in the NY Times and just happened to have a small container of sweet peppers from the farmer’s market that I needed to use. I loved all of the vegetables in this frittata. I […]

I love finding delicious vegetarian meals. The more I read, the more that I think my sons’ diets of fruit and nuts aren’t so bad after all. I’m always trying to get them to take a bite of chicken or beef, but two of the four patently refuse. If I […]

Mediterranean Farro Salad

This is another delicious recipe from the Giada DeLaurentiis cookbook that I borrowed from the library recently. I think I’m able to keep it for another week, then it has to go back. I love the idea of borrowing cookbooks from the library because heaven knows that I don’t need another […]

Orzo with Sausage, Peppers and Tomatoes

We’re on Shelter Island for Memorial Day weekend, our first weekend out here for the season, and the kitchen is not yet geared up for the summer, nor is the barbecue. I’m always afraid to take the cover off the barbecue at the beginning of the season because we often find a wasps’ […]
