Curried Lentil Stew with Potatoes

Share

 

Despite what the food looks like (I actually think it looks a little like dog food – is that terrible to say?) I found it to be incredibly delicious and I was sad when I finished the last bowl.   I could have eaten this for lunch for a week without getting sick of it.   I […]

Chicken and Dumplings

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. Filling and delicious, it’s pure comfort food that’s great to serve on a chilly evening. We’re finally having some chilly nights here in NYC. We’ve had quite a mild winter so far.

This is a great weeknight meal, although it takes a little bit of time to […]

Barefoot Carrot Salad

Share

The other night I was looking for a quick and easy side dish – and one that I might get the boys to try. A couple of them will begrudgingly eat a baby carrot or two when pressed, so I figured this was a natural extension to baby carrots. It’s funny […]

Vegetable Summer Rolls

This is another one of my favorite recipes of the summer.     The flavors explode in your mouth when you take a bite.   There is really nothing better than the combination of fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden. These rolls a little time consuming to make because you have to prepare a lot […]

I thought this soup was delicious! It’s very rich, and I served one batch as an appetizer for four people. We each got a small serving, but it was a perfect size for an appetizer.   I could have easily eaten more, but I served a main course as well.

The […]

Chicken and Rice Stoup

According to Rachel Ray, a stoup is a cross between a soup and a stew. I love hearty soups like this, and this one is delicious. The fresh herbs and the lemon zest add a nice punch of fresh flavor. I had been looking for a good chicken soup recipe, […]

Caribbean Succotash

I’m always on the lookout for interesting vegetable recipes. I recently received a subscription to Bon Appetit magazine and I found this recipe in my first issue. I love the flavor combination of all of the vegetables, and the coconut milk and nutmeg make a nice light sauce to accompany them. […]

Red Lentil Soup with Lemon

Share

When the weather starts to get chilly, I’m always on the lookout for a good, comforting soup recipe. Although I hated them as a child, I now love lentils (perhaps there’s hope for my boys?) and I’m always willing to try a highly recommended lentil soup recipe. This one was […]

Curried Carrot Soup

I made this great white bean soup on Shelter Island last weekend, but unfortunately we left the camera in Shelter Island, so I can’t post the recipe yet. As soon as we get out there again, I’ll post it because the soup was really delicious. Charles and I finished […]
