Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 3rd, 2019| Breakfast Dishes, Healthy Cooking, Recipes

A hearty & flavorful breakfast that's good for you? Yes, please!




Oatmeal is a nostalgic dish for me; it makes me feel child-like when I eat a bowl of it. Of course, if I'm eating oatmeal in that fashion, it's more of an indulgence than a healthy meal. Oatmeal

Egg White Quiche

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 1st, 2019| Breakfast Dishes, Main Dishes, Recipes

A dish to put your eating back on track




This recipe was written originally after a series of end of summer indulgences. Now, at the start of 2019, it seems the perfect time to return to a healthy diet. Even a conscientious eater, such as myself, needs to let

Bourbon Pecan Biscotti

Who says bourbon can't be part of breakfast?


Oh, biscotti, you really may be my favorite baked good to make. You're accepting of so many different flavors, you can act as a dessert or breakfast item, and you keep great texture and flavor whether being stored or shipped.

Chocolate & Bourbon Truffles

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 18th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

A decadent way to add some bourbon to your dessert menu.




Although this is a recipe from the Think Tasty archives, it's from the more recent section, as it's only a year and a half old. The biggest delay in creating this recipe was the overwhelming amount of chocolate.

Frosted Eggnog Cookies

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 13th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

A cookie that tastes like Christmas




To me, the food that tastes most like and reminds me the most of Christmas is eggnog. Others may think of gingerbread, fruit cake, pork pie, or something else, but for me it's this beverage. The funny thing is that I don't even

Overnight Eggnog Bread Pudding

Eggnog comfort food; need I say more?












Most often when I think of eggnog, it's served ice cold or added to a cup of coffee. It's not something that I think of as warm. However, when you're looking for

Deconstructed Poached Pear

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 6th, 2018| Appetizers, Desserts, Recipes, Vegetarian

The perfect beginning or ending to a meal




This recipe came to me due to a lack of fruit and a lack of patience. My initial plan was to purchase small pears, such as forelle. Sadly none of my local grocery stores had any in stock. Instead I purchased

Wine Poached Pears with Honeyed Mascarpone

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 4th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Easy & elegant; a perfect dessert recipe




Nine years later, this recipe still is a favorite. What's not to like in a recipe that combines sweetened mascarpone and wine-infused pears? It is so simple to make and also so beautiful to serve. When you add that it is amazingly

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 29th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Handheld dessert happiness for all!




Living in New Hampshire, I've seen whoopie pies for ages. However, I've never made them. A good friend gave me a recipe for classic whoopie pies years ago, but the recipe made me wrinkle my nose. The main ingredient of the filling was vegetable

Beet Cake

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 27th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Keep an open mind, and you'll be delightfully surprised.




Ah, yes, this recipe comes from the small category of feed the kids via slight of hand. See, as a parent, I always believed in letting the kids know what they were being served with the condition that they only

New & Improved Creamy Carrot Soup

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 22nd, 2018| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Soups & Stews, Vegetarian

Who knew carrot soup could be so luxurious?




I am very much a fan of shortcuts when necessary or practical. I keep store-bought pickled beets in the fridge for afternoon snacks and don't feel badly that I haven't made them. I use packaged puff pastry to save time when

“Cream” of Broccoli Soup

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 20th, 2018| Recipes, Soups & Stews

Creamy flavors without creamy calories




This recipe was created as winter was drawing to a close, but New Hampshire was still cold. Now winter is on the horizon, and again New Hampshire is cold. As I look out my windows, it's gray and rainy with the temperatures hovering a
