Blueberry Sauce

by TT February 21st, 2011| Simple Solutions
As you may know, we have been using only locally sourced produce, meats, and dairy items as of January 1st.  Thankfully, we froze several quarts of blueberries last summer, which have given us a taste of summer in the midst of a cold and blustery February.  Of course, this

Blueberry Chutney

Monday was Valentine's Day, which according to card stores, florists, and chocolate shops is the most romantic day of the  year.  That sort of thinking is fine; I have no problem with a day that is set aside to recognize love.  However, as Valentine's Day fell on Monday this year,

Banana Cream Pie

Although I am not a regular dessert eater, I do enjoy an occasional indulgence in the land of sweets.  That being said, pie is not one of my favorite desserts.  I'd far rather have cheesecake, a slice of non-chocolate cake, or ice cream.  However, when my husband and I took

The 5th Annual Peku Super Bowl party was a success.  An assortment of salty and savory snacks provided an evening of eating enjoyment.  We covered quite a range of preferences with our dishes.  From classic Buffalo wings to healthier (but still yummy) roasted green beans, our appetizers were enjoyed by

Quick Help for the Super Bowl

I am not one who loves spending her Sundays watching football.  In fact, about one game per Sunday is good for me.  Of course, if there is cooking involved, I can keep my interest for a couple games, as I will spend a decent amount of the time in

Mashed Potato Pancakes

If your children are like mine, then they adore mashed potatoes.  I don't make them often, maybe once every few months.  However, when I do make them, I prefer to make a larger batch.  My purpose is two-fold.  One, there are leftovers for the kids.  Two, I can make

Creamy (Yet Lowfat) Carrot Soup

While I am not a vegetarian, I find many all-vegetable dishes to be exciting.  I do enjoy lamb shanks and braised beef short ribs, but I also enjoy Moroccan vegetable stew equally as much.  Now that one of our daughters has decided to give vegetarianism a try, I have

Vanilla Coffee

by TT January 21st, 2011| Simple Solutions
Today's simple solution is a little different than usual.  This recipe involves no cooking; in fact, it isn't even a recipe.  However, it is a kitchen hint that I think is worthy of sharing with my fellow coffee lovers.

Working from my home office, I consume at least four cups

This year, my husband and I each created some goals. The goals fell into separate categories: as an individual, as a couple, and as a family.  Being food-centric people, several of the goals involved food, such as trying a new fruit or vegetable each month, taking the family to

Curried Yogurt Dip

We had an enjoyable set of holidays at our home with our children and a set of grandparents.  Christmas was a nonstop rotation of presents and food, which is the perfect way to spend the holiday: Open presents with immediate family, have breakfast.  Open presents with grandparents/in-laws, have a

Fresh Ricotta Soufflé

Cheese is a favorite food in our house.  Whether served simply with crackers, added to a recipe, or heated into a wonderfully gooey concoction, we like to keep an assortment on hand at all times.  In fact, when we have three or fewer varieties in our dairy drawer, someone usually

Honey Glazed Nuts

As always, the Christmas season arrives, and the pace inside our household quickens.  With four children excited for presents and school vacation, there is a constant air of excitement.  Add a set of parents staying for a few days and friends and family visiting for the holiday, and you
