Time to Say Hello to Fall

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 22nd, 2017| Friday Flashback

Apples & cranberries- meant to be together

Today is officially the first day of fall, so even if the weather feels like summer, it might be time to accept that it's almost time to put the flip flops away. Of course, that also means it's time to get the

Banana Blueberry “Ice Cream”

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 20th, 2017| Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

This really could be a breakfast dish.

Monday featured a dish that embraces fall. Today I have a dish that begs summer to stay for a few more days. I mean, you can eat ice cream all year long, but I primarily treat it as a summer food. Who

Warm Butternut Apple Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 18th, 2017| Recipes, Salads

Fall flavors + pancetta = yum

I'm in the midst of seasonal transitions here in New Hampshire, as many of you probably are. Last week it was so chilly at night that I thought about closing the windows. (I didn't but added a blanket. There's something about a cool

Keeping It Sweet All Week

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 15th, 2017| Friday Flashback

Sweetness doesn't get much easier than this.

Perhaps you saw Monday's recipe for Margarita Cake and thought it looked delicious, but it was too much work. Maybe when you saw Wednesday's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe, you thought, "Eh, not my thing." Now it's Friday, and you'd really like some

Tangy Cream Cheese Frosting

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 13th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Serve it atop a cake or a spoon; it's your choice!

As I worked on my recipe for Margarita Cake with a Kick, I wondered what sort of frosting should be paired with it. I debated some sort of coconut frosting but didn't want to lose

Margarita Cake with a Kick

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 11th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

All it's missing is the salted rim.

This cake is not for those who approach tequila warily. There is a half cup of tequila involved in making the cake. Of course, the cake serves anywhere from eight to twelve people, depending on slice size, so at most your slice

What’s Better Than a Cookie?

Who says stuffing has to be savory?

This week's recipes have focused on stuffed dishes: Italian peppers and portobello mushrooms. But appetizers aren't the only things that get to have stuffing. Sure, so do breakfast items, such as stuffed French toast, and main

Portobellos with Wine Poached Lobster

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 6th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

This is what indulgence tastes like.

This delightful recipe was the appetizer in our 5-course anniversary dinner back in July. As beef was the entrée, I wanted a different protein to be part of the appetizer. What says special occasion better than lobster? I guess other types of shellfish

Linguisa & Mushroom Stuffed Peppers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 4th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A few ingredients, lots of flavor.

When I was creating this recipe, I wanted the stuffed peppers to be part of an afternoon snack menu and, as such, wanted them not to be large, filling dishes. For that reason I chose cubanelles as the pepper for this recipe. They're

End of Summer Goodness

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 1st, 2017| Friday Flashback

The flavors of late summer in a bowl.

As I write this post, I'm thinking about the pile of bags and boxes that is growing under my stairs, as my daughter is packing to head to her sophomore year of college. Like many other parents, this time of year

Caramelized Pecan Biscotti with Salted Butterscotch Glaze

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 30th, 2017| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

Crunchy, sweet, & salty- these biscotti have it all.

As I wrote on Monday, I mostly eat healthfully. However, I do have a sweet tooth, which I keep under control more often than not. Sometimes, though, I just need to give into the cravings. (Although I do try and

Creamy Cucumber and Pea Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 28th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian

Nice and creamy, but also nice and healthy.

Yes, I know. I have a fixation with healthy foods. I frequently am thinking of ways to convert recipes from high fat, high calorie dishes into slimmer, trimmer dishes while keeping lots of flavor. I can admit that sometimes you just
