Loaded Sweet Potatoes- Hotel Style

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 30th, 2016| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
As I mentioned in Monday's post, I'm currently living in a hotel. It's a nice hotel with a decent gym, reasonable breakfast options, and indoor pool and jacuuzi- so no complaints about the hotel. But I don't have a kitchen. I do have a fairly large refrigerator, considering

Tips for Cooking without a Kitchen

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 28th, 2016| Cooking Basics
Sometimes things in life align just perfectly. For example, the day after we brought our daughter to college and officially became empty nesters, a week's worth of travel for work fell into our laps. Having a week on the road, avoiding the quietness of our home, was truly welcomed.

When Thanksgiving is done, you may have a lot of leftovers and not that many people in your house. In my experience, it's the turkey that lingers. Somehow the side dishes and desserts disappear, but I have lots of turkey in my refrigerator waiting to be consumed. Sure, last night

It's the day before Thanksgiving, and you may be in the rush of dinner planning. Baking desserts, prepping side dishes, defrosting the turkey are filling your afternoon. Why on earth would I suggest you add one more item to your to-do list when the list is long already?

Cauliflower & Mushroom Risotto

My husband and I both adore risotto. What's not to like? Rice that is al dente yet creamy. Cheesy goodness. A warm and filling dish that makes you want to take a nap. Yes, all of these are wonderful things, but they are all indulgent. So, on a Tuesday night,

I really enjoy brussel sprouts, as do my husband and children. There are a fairly regular side dish in our menu. Whether they're simply sauteed with some lemon zest or balsamic vinegar, they are a veggie we all enjoy. However, sometimes I like to take this vegetable and transform it

I will admit it takes a special palate and an open mind to consider this recipe. In fact, when I named this recipe I considered calling it Vegetarian Chili. I probably could have convinced more people to continue reading if I hadn't mentioned that butternut squash has a prominent role

With only my husband and me at home, we don't cook a lot of pasta. In fact, I don't think we've made any pasta since our daughter headed to college. I don't imagine we'll cook any until we have kids home for holiday break. Of course, that doesn't mean that

I didn't really start cooking with spaghetti squash until a few years ago. I'm not sure why it took me so long to start using it as an ingredient. For me it has been an excellent replacement for pasta that both my husband and me enjoy. Oh well, better late
