My parents gave me a subscription to a magazine called Fine Cooking for Christmas. I have been receiving it for several years now and I LOVE it! It’s one of my favorite cooking magazines. One recipe is better than the next.
This recipe came from the latest issue and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it […]
We arrived on Shelter Island yesterday early evening. It was gorgeous outside, the sun was shining and it was hot, but not too hot. I had a hankering to turn on the grill, but since it was getting late, I wanted to make something simple that wasn’t going to take me until midnight to prepare. […]
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 […]
A couple of friends came over for dinner last night and I was looking for something quick and easy to make. I’ve had some great luck with Rachael Ray’s 30-minute meals and I happened to bring the latest issue of her magazine with me when I went to pick up the boys from school. […]
I took the boys to the library the other day for a smoothie-making class. They really enjoyed it – even the one that doesn’t like any fruits or vegetables. He didn’t like any of the smoothies (I tried them and can confirm that they were delicious), but I gave him credit for trying […]
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 – […]
My brother recently competed in the NYC Triathlon and the night before the race, I made him (and a number of his friends) a carbo-loaded dinner of spaghetti and meatballs. Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never in my life made meatballs other than Swedish meatballs. I don’t know […]
I joined a CSA and picked up my first batch of produce today. I’m so excited! What’s CSA you ask? A CSA is Community Supported Agriculture. Basically a bunch of people get together and commit to purchasing whatever a farm produces during a season. I was lucky enough […]
I’ve made this a couple of times now and it’s my favorite chili recipe, and I’ve tried lots of them. I’ve made Texas chili, turkey chili, white chili, and my mom’s chili and this is my hands-down favorite. I made a double batch last weekend for the Jets-Indianapolis playoff game. We […]
Now that we’re back from Shelter Island and school has started, I’m trying to get back into a more normal routine which includes family dinners at 6pm. I love eating with Charles and the boys. It’s a great time to find out what happened at school.
I made these burgers last night and I thought they […]
