Cream & Berry Tarts

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

Stuffed Mushrooms

A recent Sunday was filled with a nice combination of events:  a few hours of work in the morning, a few hours of back to shopping, a little bit of cooking, and finally, hanging out with the family while eating and watching the Patriots game.  Although it may not have

Canning and freezing season is in full swing at our house.  A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend making one batch of canned tomatoes and creating all sorts of peach items: peach and tomato salsa, peach jam, pickled peaches, peach-infused vinegar, peach-infused vodka, and peach bread.  Our basement shelves

Baba Ghanoush

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 13th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
First, I know that the spelling of this yummy dip may not be the way you've seen it in other recipes or cookbooks.  However, baba ghanoush is one of those words that has multiple accepted spellings.  So, I chose the one that I liked best!

Now, on to the important stuff-

Macerated Fruit

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 8th, 2011| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Technically, I am calling this a recipe, but I know there isn't much involved in the recipe.  It simply is a matter of combining two (or maybe three) ingredients to produce a final product.  However, I think that macerated fruit could be considered a recipe in that the final

Spinach & Goat Cheese Dip

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 5th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Both my husband and I enjoy warm, melted cheese in all varieties.  From the stretchy nature of mozzarella to the lush creaminess to brie to the delightful silkiness of a gruyére fondue, we adore cheese in its molten form.

Last week I knew I had a small log of goat cheese

Buttercream Frosting

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 29th, 2011| Desserts, Recipes
Last week I wrote about one of my favorite desserts, wedding cake.  In addition to enjoying the hint of almond in the cake, I love that there is a layer of fruit and a rich buttercream frosting.  Yes, I do know that some people prefer wedding cake with chocolate

Wedding Cake

There are two types of cake that vie for the position of favorite cake.  One of those is carrot cake, which I adore for its moist texture and sweet yet savory frosting.  The other is wedding cake, which I've enjoyed since I was a little girl who got to

Cupcakes & Cake Slices in NYC

During the summer, when our schedule allows, my husband and I schedule our business travel at the same time.  Although our days are filled with meetings, we have our evenings, and occasionally our weekends, to play.  What better way is there to spend a Saturday in Manhattan than walking through

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 16th, 2011| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that seems destined for filling with ingredients.  Growing up, my mom frequently stuffed zucchini with spinach, which made a delicious dish that could be served as an entrée or side.  This spring I created a tomato-stuffed zucchini topped with mozzarella.  As both of

Blackberry Bruschetta

We are fortunate to have wild blackberry bushes in our backyard.  However, most summers there aren't that many berries on the plants.  In fact, there usually are only enough for the kids to pick and eat.  Of course, I'm not going to complain about kids thinking that blackberries are a

Artichoke Salad

On a recent Tapas Monday, I lacked creativity.  I had a meeting near a great Italian specialty shop, so I decided to seek inspiration there.  As I knew would happen, I wasn't disappointed.  I found more cheeses than one would need for a dinner for two, assorted cured meats,
