Recipe: Pumpkin Spiced Walnuts

by TT October 26th, 2015| Appetizers, Garnishes, Recipes
It's October, and the entire world is obsessed with pumpkin spice. Or at least so it seems. I happen to not be one of those people. I don't want pumpkin spice coffee or cereal. Sure, I like pumpkin bread and pancakes, but I'm open-minded. I'll eat them year 'round,

Ridiculously Easy Stuffed Peppers

by TT July 27th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Peppers have been on the editorial calendar for weeks, and for most of that time I have pondered how to make peppers into a star ingredient of a dish. It seems that most of the time I use peppers as an accent or condiment when cooking. I have made

Quick Pickled Zucchini Spears

Several summers ago, my husband and I decided to do some canning. It was a perfect summer hobby with young teens in our household. We were around most weekends, either hosting groups of friends or dropping kids off at other households hosting teens. What to do in between shuttling/supervising teens?

We've had a couple rainy Sundays in a row. Father's Day we had rain until the mid-afternoon, which made for a good excuse to stay inside and relax. The next Sunday was even rainier, as it never let up for the entire day. Add to it that it was

Strawberry Feta Pizza

by TT May 25th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
When we chose strawberries as one of our theme ingredients I was determined not to use it only as a dessert. After last week's chicken salad recipe, I thought I might switch gears and utilize these berries as a sweet treat. However, as Tapas Monday drew near, I had

Proscuitto-Wrapped Asparagus- 2 Ways

by TT May 4th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
I love asparagus. It's a vegetable I like to use in a variety of ways. Sometimes it is simply steamed until al dente and served as a salad topping. Other times it is grilled and served as a side dish with our dinner. On a fairly regular basis I

Candied Bacon- Sweet & Salty Perfection

by TT April 20th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes
I adore the combination of sweet and salty. In fact one of my favorite indulgences in white chocolate covered popcorn with a light sprinkling of salt. In fact, if I'm home alone on a weekend night, there's a good chance you'll find me on the couch gobbling a bowl

“Sushi” Squares — No Sushi Chef Required

by Jane Wangersky January 29th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
Sushi shows up often as an appetizer or even a quick light meal -- but most of us buy it ready made rather than try to make it at home. Real sushi-making does take some training and special equipment -- if you’re interested, check out continuing education classes in

Onion Goat Cheese Spread

I love cooking. I love creating dishes that will please others. If I'm alone, I like tinkering with recipes, knowing that I only have my palate to please. Basically, I love working with food and thinking about all of the flavors and textures involved.  Reflecting upon my cooking, the

Bacon-Wrapped Apples: Sweet, Salty, Hot

by Jane Wangersky January 22nd, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
When you use bacon in an appetizer, people tend to expect to find it wrapped around something, simply because it’s so easy to wrap around other foods (before it’s cooked, anyway), and it’s so good at sharing its intense flavor with them too. So on the buffet table you

Broccoli Meatballs- an Oxymoron

by TT January 19th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
As I started typing the title of this recipe, I realized it sounds kind of funny to call this appetizer a meatball.  You see, there is no meat in this recipe.  I would say that it is a vegetarian delight, but my rather carnivorous husband enjoyed this dish just

Cheese Gems — A Quick Baked Appetizer

by Jane Wangersky January 15th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Simple Solutions
I owe the origins of this recipe to yet another book at Project Gutenberg -- Recipes Tried and True, published in 1894 by the Ladies’ Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church in Marion, Ohio -- and specifically to one contributor, Mrs. Fred Schaeffer. Though I’d seen similar recipes,
