Omelette Au Fromage

by Elizabeth Skipper June 3rd, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
I ate omelets at least twice a week while in night school in Switzerland. There was just enough time between work and school to order and consume an omelet in the school cafeteria. It came with a side of pommes frites (French fries) and a green salad. Bet that

Mini Egg White Quiche

by TT June 1st, 2015| Main Dishes, Recipes
For the next two weeks our ingredient theme is eggs. This ingredient is one that is dear to my heart and ever-present in our home. Although I haven't written about it in a while, we have 6 hens that provide us with eggs on a daily basis. Thus, I

Strawberry Cream with Gingered Honey

by Jane Wangersky May 28th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Since my recipe last week was so loaded with sugar, I challenged myself to make this week’s without any. Strawberries on their own don’t really need any sweetening, but since I had also decided to use sour cream I knew I’d need something to sweeten the mix. Mānuka honey

Grilled Italian Chicken

by Elizabeth Skipper May 27th, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Grilled marinated chicken is delicious, but brining the chicken beforehand allows the flavors to more fully penetrate the meat. I’ve included sugar as an option in the brine ingredients although I probably wouldn’t use it myself; it’s just there to assist in browning. You can also use this brine

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

Homemade Strawberry Syrup

by Jane Wangersky May 21st, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s strawberry time, at least in California and other warm places, and -- for those of us who live further north -- in the produce department. Strawberries are grown near where I live, but our local strawberries don’t travel well and mostly get made into jam and other products

Strawberries for Dipping

by Elizabeth Skipper May 20th, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
It seems like cheating to call this a recipe, but I’ve never come across a better way to serve strawberries that’s different, elegant, delicious, and so little work. This idea first came to my attention when I was in cooking school, and it seemed bizarre at the time. The

Chicken & Strawberry Salad Sandwich

by TT May 18th, 2015| Recipes, Salads, Sandwiches
At our house we are huge fans of chicken salad sandwiches. In fact, they make a regular appearance in our summer menu. For us, chicken salad is an individual item. So, on chicken salad nights, there are chicken breasts, binding ingredient (mayo, yogurt, etc.), and an assortment of add-ins

Crispy Fried Asparagus

by Jane Wangersky May 14th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Last time, I wrote briefly about some of the options for asparagus besides the recipe I gave you then. Well, I hadn’t actually tried everything I wrote about -- fried breaded asparagus, for example. And I found I kept thinking about it, so for this week I decided to

Penne with Asparagus & Ham

by Elizabeth Skipper May 13th, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Asparagus and ham complement each other nicely, with the sweetness of the asparagus balancing the saltiness of the ham. Against a background of pasta, with the added richness of cream, this is a perfect spring dish which makes the most of an often costly vegetable. If you’re a fan

Warm Asparagus Salad

by TT May 11th, 2015| Recipes, Salads
I have used asparagus as the topping of many a green salad. Steamed and cut into bite-sized pieces, it is a nice change of pace from pepper strips and cherry tomatoes. What I hadn't done was used the asparagus as the star of the salad. As they say, there's

Asparagus with Eggs Parmesan

by Jane Wangersky May 7th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
This week we’re focussing on asparagus; love it or hate it -- and I’ve done both in one day during one of my pregnancies -- it’s certainly a special vegetable. In season for only a short time in the spring, tending to be expensive, it’s something most people associate
