If you like shrimp and you’re in the mood for a light, refreshing summer dish, this is it. The flavors in this salad are bright, it has a lot of crunch and it’s very refreshing on a hot day. It’s heading up to almost 100 in NYC today and I wish we hadn’t eaten all […]

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 […]

Jerk Shrimp Mini Pies

What a treat these little pies are!   We had them for dinner on Sunday night and I wish I had made more.  I do have some extra shrimp in the freezer, so I’ll definitely make these again soon.   The insides have such a great combination of flavors – bacon, shrimp, fresh tomatoes, scallions and lime […]

We had a potluck event at the boys’ school tonight and first grade families were responsible for bringing an international appetizer or side dish.   I spent a lot of time looking for recipes this afternoon, but didn’t find anything that piqued my interest.   Last week, I made this recipe for our book club meeting and […]

This isn’t one of the greatest photos, but this dish is definitely worth making.   It’s perfect for a dinner party because you can put the whole thing together in the morning and then throw it in the oven when you’re ready to eat.   It takes less than 15 minutes to cook.

This is one of those […]

My cousin Danielle is taking an Integrative Nutrition class in NY so she’ll be visiting us once a month for the next six months.   It’s a nice treat for us to see her because she lives in DC and we typically only see her a couple of times a year at big family gatherings.   She […]
