Chicken Florentine Style

Share

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

Share

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 […]

Pasta, Pesto and Peas

Share

This is a very nice pasta salad for the summer. During the summer, I love to make dishes that can be served cold.   Who wants to be slaving over the stove when it’s so hot outside?   I love this recipe because it comes together in no time, especially if you’re using pre-made pesto.

As […]
