Thanksgiving Turkey

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 17th, 2011| Main Dishes, Recipes
Almost every Thanksgiving dinner centers around the turkey.  Sure, there are exceptions, such as our vegetarian daughter who will be enjoying a fine black bean cake instead, but the majority of homes prepare turkey as the highlight of the meal.  If you are one of the many who is preparing

Thanksgiving Veggies

Every family has their traditional side dishes.  As a child, my mom always made the classic green bake, complete with cream of mushroom soup and french fried onions.  It was guaranteed that you would find a baking dish of it somewhere amongst all the other dinner items.

While there is

Roasted Garbanzo Beans

Last Friday night was one of those rare instances where dinner is just one of the kids and me.  On this particular evening, it was our 15 year old son who was home with me.  After a busy day at the office for me and an afternoon of hanging out

Thanksgiving Stuffing- Part 2

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 11th, 2011| Recipes, Side Dishes
Earlier this week, I shared two different stuffing recipes: one that has a base of focaccia and one with a base of wild rice.  Unique and flavored with their own set of ingredients, they are sure to please.  Today, I have two more stuffing recipes, but these have

Sweet Potato Latkes

Spending four days last week without power was an interesting experience, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  Although we didn't have power or hot water, we had access to many conveniences.  We were able to cook on our stovetop, as we have a gas stove.  We

Thanksgiving Stuffing- Part 1

As regular readers know, I am not a chef.  However, I have a great passion for working in the kitchen, trying new recipes, and playing with food.  Therefore, almost every recipe I post is one that I have created.  The other recipes that I post are classics from family

This past Saturday my husband and I planned to spend our day hiking and running errands, which would be followed by a slow-cooked meal for two.  We knew that we were expecting a snowstorm, so it seemed the perfect night to let short ribs braise in the oven while

Homemade Ricotta

About a decade ago, I remember speaking with a friend about her lasagna recipe.  Raised in an Italian family, her lasagna was the best I had ever had, especially the ricotta.  I asked what brand she used.  Her reply was, "Where do you buy your ricotta?"

At that time, I thought

Spinach Sauce

Out of our four children, our oldest is the least picky.  In our house, that is saying a lot, for none of our kids are truly picky.  Having the "no thank you" serving really has helped with that.  However, if I had to choose one that I could

Asian Ketchup

It's been a month since I shared a Simple Solution.  This recipe fits perfectly within this category.  It requires two ingredients and takes about 5 seconds to make.  However, the flavor that it imparts is so much greater than would seem possible.

So, how did Asian Ketchup come to be? 

Silky Zucchini Soup

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 6th, 2011| Recipes, Soups & Stews
Originally I was going to call this recipe Creamy Zucchini Soup.  However, before I could publish the recipe I read an article in which a chef took another chef to task for calling a soup creamy, when there was no cream in the recipe.  This recipe has no cream;

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to try some Walkers Shortbread Cookies.  To be honest, shortbread isn't one of my favorite cookies; usually, I find them to be bland.  However, I thought they might make a good ingredient in a recipe, so I accepted
