Sweet Potato-Sausage Soup

Share

This soup is delicious, incredibly satisfying and really quick to make. It’s definitely something that can be made on a weeknight and served with a nice loaf of rustic bread. Since the boys wouldn’t go near it (nothing new there), we had some soup left over and I actually thought it was better on the […]

Lots O'Meat Lasagna

Share

If you like a meaty, cheesy, hearty lasagna, this is a terrific recipe.   I make it annually on Halloween when some friends come over with their children for trick or treating.   I also make it when I want something I can make in advance to serve a crowd.  I have been making it for years, […]

Sausage, White Bean, and Swiss Chard Soup

Share

One of the vegetables being featured at my CSA this week is swiss chard. I’ve never cooked with it before. Since I’m responsible for recipes/photos for the weekly newsletter, I pored over swiss chard recipes and decided to try this one. I’m so glad I did because this is now one of my top 5 […]

Cajun Jambalaya

Jambalaya, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is derived from the Provençal word ‘jambalaia’ which means mish-mash or mixup. It also means a pilaf of rice.

The other day was cold and damp and I wanted to make some easy comfort food. This recipe fit the bill perfectly. It’s a great one-pot meal that doesn’t take […]

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’ […]

Go Green Giant Calzone

I tore this recipe out of a magazine last month because it looked so easy and so good.  I made it recently when a couple of friends stopped by for dinner.   I threw this together as a quick weeknight meal and it was really delicious.   How can you go wrong with sausage, spinach and cheese?  […]

Skillet Shrimp and Rice

Share

This is one of those meals that I throw together when company comes by at the last minute.   I usually have most of the ingredients on hand, with the exception of the chorizo or kielbasa, but living in NY, we have the privilege of having markets every couple of blocks.

When I was growing up, […]

Lasagna with Pink Sauce, Leeks and Sausage

Share

This lasagna is different, but it’s incredibly delicious. It’s a recipe that my brother sent to me a number of years ago. The thing I love about it most is that it’s really easy to prepare because you don’t need to cook the noodles before assembling it. I have […]
