Creamy Spinach Enchiladas with Red Cabbage Slaw

Share

This meal was surprisingly delicious.   There’s something about the creamy sauce on the vegetarian enchiladas paired with the savory cabbage slaw that makes this meal comforting and delightful.   I was skeptical when I made it because it doesn’t call for any spices or strong flavors like garlic, onion, cumin, etc.  I thought it might be […]

Chicken Florentine Style

Ok, so this isn’t the best picture, I didn’t arrange the dish very well, but boy was this a great dinner. I can’t wait to make it again. The sauce on the chicken is to die for. I actually wish I had made some extra sauce, it was that good. The shallots, wine and garlic […]

The CSA that I belong to on Shelter Island has its first distribution over Memorial Day weekend. I’m responsible for contributing the recipes to the weekly newsletter, so you’ll see me posting a lot of vegetable recipes for the next couple of months. I love the CSA because I’m forced to cook things that I […]

Spinach Salad with Chicken and Apples

Share

I have been making this spinach salad for years – longer than I’ve been married actually. I have no idea where I found the recipe. I’m so happy to finally be posting it. I made it last night as a light dinner and we gobbled it up. Not the boys, of course. That said, they […]

Baby Spinach Salad

Found this recipe in a recent Rachael Ray magazine. I love pomegranate seeds and I also like salads with cheese, so I had to try it. It’s my new current favorite. It’s light, tasty and the pomegranate seeds add some nice flavor and color.

I bought the pomegranate seeds […]

Lamb's Quarters Quiche

Share

I love picking up my weekly vegetables from the CSA.   We were recently given Lamb’s Quarters.   I had never heard of them before so I had to look them up.   I thought they were weeds, and actually some people still consider them weeds, but they’re quite delicious when baked into a quiche.    I bet […]

Spicy Chicken Barley Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Spinach

This soup is incredibly healthy and quite delicious.    I ate it for a couple of days and I loved every bowl I ate.  The combination of spices is wonderful.   I took this picture the day after I made it.   I wish I had gotten a picture when it was first cooked – the spinach […]

Spanakopita Lasagna

Share

This is a delicious vegetarian meal. The directions may look long, but it’s actually fairly easy to put together – a little time consuming, but not hard. The trickiest part of this recipe is dealing with the phyllo dough. It dries out very quickly so when working with it.  […]

Individual Beef Wellingtons with Mushroom, Spinach and Blue Cheese Filling

Share

This was the pièce de résistance of my Christmas Eve menu. I made 12 of these and it took over 5 hours to assemble them and that was with help from my dear friend Paul who happened to drop by on the day before Christmas Eve. He was immediately pressed into […]

Smoky Black Bean and Cheddar Burrito with Baby Spinach

Share

Once again, this is a case of the picture not doing the dish justice. Sometimes that happens when something is so good that we eat almost all of it, then I scream, “Don’t eat the last one… we have to photograph it for the blog.” Unfortunately you can’t see the […]
