Crispy okra + slightly spicy dip = MmmMmm




Two weeks into my stay in Hot Springs, I wanted to cook with ingredients that are local. Sadly, although the weather is nicer, it's not harvest time. However, I still wanted to work with an ingredient that's hard to find in

Green Bean Fries

My favorite sort of fries




I've been making these fries for quite some time, much to my own happiness. The rest of my family is less excited but are glad to nibble on them as well. While they may prefer "real" fries, if given the choice, these are my

Overnight Apple Oatmeal

A healthy breakfast, ready in no time.




As I mentioned earlier this week, I am currently situated in Hot Springs, Arkansas. As most of my family and friends pondered, the question is why. The answer is fairly simple. Both my husband and I have the ability to work remotely;

Fall flavors + pancetta = yum




Currently, I'm located in Hot Springs, Arkansas, working remotely through late February. I'll explain that more later this week, but for now I'll focus on the weather here. We had a "cold spell" here, also known as having a daytime high of mid

Plum & Prosciutto Bites

A whole new spin on fruit appetizers




I'm fairly certain that if you offer to bring a fruit-based appetizer to a gathering, many people will accept the offer but prepare themselves to be disappointed. Personally, I love finding a fruit tray at a buffet, but I know many people

Plum & Taleggio Prosciutto Packets

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 29th, 2019| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A delightful trifecta of yumminess




In the spirit of full disclosure, this recipe is not from deep within the Think Tasty archives. In fact, it's not even six months old. However, it really is the perfect partner for this week's new recipe. Both recipes are comprised of prosciutto, plums,

Banana Whoopie Pies

Two words: handheld yumminess




Who knew what monster I was unleashing when I made Pumpkin Whoopie Pies in November? My husband had always turned his nose up at them, prior to this. (Deny it if you want, my dear, but it's true.) Yet, after he got to sample

Warm Banana Cake

Cake served warm- a perfect winter treat




As I was searching the archives for a banana-focused treat, I stumbled upon this recipe. While I cognitively knew that this was from years ago, it astounded me (as always) when I read this recipe. First, I was bewildered by the element

Healthy-ish Cauliflower Cakes

Another yummy way to eat more cauliflower




After creating an indulgent, new recipe last week, I felt compelled to make sure this week's recipe had us back on track. In actuality, even though I call it healthy-ish, it probably is the right approach to take for good-for-you eating. This

Cauliflower & Mushroom Risotto

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 15th, 2019| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Vegetarian

Incredibly delicious & healthy in one bowl




Last week I diverted from the healthy eating routine most people follow in January. Now, it's back to some dishes that will help you recover from holiday indulgences. One of my favorite ways to do this is eating more vegetable-focused meals. I

Bruschetta with Lemon Honey Ricotta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 10th, 2019| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

Simple & delicious; a fine pairing




During the holidays we hosted a work gathering at our home. With a group of a dozen people, I made all of the dishes for this cocktail reception. I wanted all of the foods to be eaten easily while standing. No one wants

Hot & Bubbling Baked Ricotta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 8th, 2019| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Pure cheese perfection!




I know, last week was all about healthy eating, and I'm starting this week with total indulgence. No, I'm not trying to sway you from your resolutions, but I do want to offer one piece of advice (that you've probably heard before). It's not good to
