Blueberry Crisp

by TT July 27th, 2011| Desserts, Recipes
Blueberry season is in full swing.  My husband and I have made three trips to our local pick-your-own farm to stock our home for the next year, which means we've had a few busy days.  We spent two Saturdays picking a dozen or so pounds and making blueberry jam and

Zucchini Fries

by TT July 21st, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that I wish was available locally all year long.  Sadly, its stay is much shorter than that, and it is a vegetable that doesn't freeze well whole.  So, while zucchini is available I like to cook with it frequently.

I have served zucchini in numerous

Red Wine Tomato Sauce

After ten days on the road (with a quick 12-hour stop at home in the middle), it is good to be home again.  Don't get me wrong, the holiday weekend exploring New Brunswick was wonderful.  I also enjoyed a week of business travel in Manhattan, but being home is

Ultimate Figs

by TT July 4th, 2011| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Tapas Monday
I think figs may be one of the most unappreciated fruits.  I know that I didn't always see the beauty in them.  Typically I thought of them in their dried form, which doesn't showcase them nearly as well.  While Fig Newtons may be enjoyed by many, they are near

Summer Squash & Zucchini Bruschetta

by TT June 29th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian
Although I am not a vegetarian, I am a huge fan of produce.  Some of my favorite meals are based around fruits and vegetables.  So, this time of year is quite exciting for me.  After a long winter and spring with almost no freshly picked produce, it is a delight

Make Your Own Temaki Sushi

by TT June 23rd, 2011| Main Dishes, Recipes
With four children that have varying likes, it can be difficult to find a dinner that works for all.  When I want to make a meal that is eagerly embraced by all, I tend to choose a "Make Your Own" meal, such as make your own paninis.  There is another

Bourbon Sauce

by TT June 20th, 2011| Simple Solutions
Here are a few fun facts about me and bourbon.  One, I never have liked the smell or taste of bourbon, or any whiskey for that matter.  Two, my husband adores a well-aged whiskey as a sipping cocktail.  Three, over the past couple years I have come to appreciate

Warm Beet Green Salad

As I was preparing this post, I was thinking about my affinity for greens.  Although I tried, I couldn't think of a green that I don't like.  Escarole, swiss chard, kale, callaloo, and spinach are among the leafy vegetables I enjoy.  In fact, the green I like least is

Rhubarb Chutney

I love the arrival of warm weather.  Not only does it mean that the cold sensation in my fingers and toes should disappear, but it also means that there will be more local produce available.  These local options provide us with inspiration for many meals and snacks.

Sweeter Muffins

by TT May 30th, 2011| Breads, Recipes
Our oldest turned fifteen at the end of April.  He wasn't certain if he really wanted a birthday party, but he did think the idea of having a "handful" of friends over would be great.  So, once we agreed upon what a "handful" was (five) and spring track season ended,

Rice & Beans, Vegetarian Style

by TT May 23rd, 2011| Main Dishes, Recipes, Vegetarian
As I've mentioned previously, our 13 year old daughter has become a vegetarian.  After six months of this lifestyle, she is enjoying it and not missing any of the foods that I thought she would, such as filet mignon or bacon.  What has been helpful to this change is her
