German Potato Salad

Share

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 […]

Avocado Vichyssoise

This Sunday’s NY Times had an article on cold soups written by Mark Bittman.    Twelve bowls of beautiful soup were pictured in an online interactive feature .  I had some time before my son’s baseball game on Sunday afternoon, so I made a batch. It’s very easy to make and incredibly tasty.

I used my […]

Tzatziki Potato Salad

Share

I love a good potato salad in the summer. I also love trying new recipes, so this tzatziki potato salad was the perfect combination.

Tzatziki is a Greek/Turkish sauce that’s made from strained yogurt (aka Greek yogurt) and served as an accompaniment to something else or with bread. It’s also served as a sauce with gyros […]

Ultimate Shepherd's Pie

Share

 

The weather has been a little wacky in NYC this month. We had some unseasonably warm weather in March. Unfortunately that didn’t continue in April, which has been quite cold. After March, I thought I’d be able to put our winter clothes away. No such luck. Anyway, I mention the weather because I made this […]

Salt 'n' Vinegar Roasted Potatoes

Share

Made these potatoes tonight. In my usual fashion, they weren’t ready with the rest of dinner. They came out of the oven just as we had finished the rest of the meal. It didn’t matter though, they were so good that we ate a bunch of them anyway.

They’re very easy to […]

I haven’t posted in a while because we got busy with Halloween. Halloween is my husband’s favorite holiday and he created an excellent haunted house in our apartment that we showcased at a Halloween party that we threw for the boys. It was lots of fun but took […]

Mustard-Roasted Potatoes

Share

I make a lot of roasted potatoes in the summer.  Don’t ask me why.  I know that I shouldn’t turn on the oven when it’s 90 degrees outside, but roasted potatoes are just so good and so easy to make, and during the summer I spend a fair amount of time at the barbeque, so […]

Potato Torta

Share

This torta has only a few ingredients, but sometimes the most delicious dishes are the most simple. This is very similar to a Spanish Omelet which is a very common appetizer served in Spain at bars and cafes. This is delicious served either warm or cold and you can eat it […]

Beef, Cheddar and Potato Pie

Share

This recipe could have been called Meat, Cheddar and Potato Pie, because I have made it with both beef and turkey.  I think it’s equally good with both.   I really should have taken a picture of the inside of this pie.  It’s a big pile of meat and vegetables wrapped in delicious puff pastry – […]

Indian Summer Gratin with Butternut Squash, Potatoes, Corn, and Bacon

Share

This is another one of those recipes that I liked so much I made it twice in a row. It’s a wonderful casserole that can be served for dinner because it’s a complete meal. It’s also nice as a side-dish. The flavors go so well together.

I will warn you […]
