Doris’s Mexican Mix

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 15th, 2007| Main Dishes, Recipes
We all have long-time friends. People we've known for a decade or two with whom you can share almost anything. I am fortunate enough not only to have friends like that but also to work with one of them. We get the benefit of seeing each other during our workdays

Lunchbox Pasta Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 7th, 2007| Recipes, Salads
School is back in session, which means that it is time to think of lunches that are healthy and that the kids like.  The kids aren't so excited about peanut butter sandwiches, and even daily sandwiches made with lunchmeat tend to get boring.  So, I try to vary the lunches

Italian Sausage Melt

Being without children the other day, we were able to browse while grocery and baby shopping. As we walked leisurely through our favorite small and funky grocery store, we were able to find new products that we had not tried before.

When we arrived at the condiment aisle, we discovered

My best friend, in an attempt to keep me up to date with current events, sent an email to me a few weeks ago. In this email she let me know that today, August 30th, is Toasted Marshmallow Day. To me, it seems like the perfect day for this holiday.

Best Breakfast Wrap

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 27th, 2007| Breakfast Dishes, Healthy Cooking, Recipes
With the week of vacation ending, a healthy diet is required.   Too many mornings of full breakfasts and too many nights of large dinners have encouraged me to return to my usual healthy eating.

Never having been a person who is able to skip meals, I always eat breakfast.  Sometimes it

Asian Chicken Salad

My family and I have spent the past week on vacation in the Mid-Atlantic states. We have been to the beach several times and enjoyed the usual beach fare: french fries, ice cream, Italian ice water, caramel corn. Travelling by car with four children, there also have been numerous stops

Sam’s Chocolate Fondue

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 23rd, 2007| Desserts, Recipes
Fondue is one of my favorite dishes to make.  Of course, if I make a cheese fondue, it's not very popular with the kids.  That is saved for a grown-ups only night.  A bottle of wine, a plate of veggies and bread, there's not much more that we need.

Mary Kate’s Breadsticks

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 10th, 2007| Appetizers, Recipes
Recently, there was a merging of two families, expanding my household from two to four children.  At the initial meeting of the four children, I decided a little cooking might be a good ice breaker for the girls.  Plus, a fun snack in the middle of the afternoon would work

On a warm, breezy summer afternoon, I met a handful of colleagues at a friend's house for lunch. The focus of this lunchdate was both social and business.  It was planned to be a relaxing afternoon of gabbing and food served on casual china dinnerware.

Beach Gazpacho

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 2nd, 2007| Recipes, Soups & Stews
With the first real heatwave of the season upon us and having just read an article about cold soups, I felt inspired to try one.  Using one of the recipes that I had read as a base, I made some modifications and created my own version.  Being a no cook

Big Jake’s Lettuce Wraps

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 28th, 2007| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Sandwiches
With July coming to an end, it's the perfect time to spend a day at the beach. Have the kids put on their swimsuits, grab any toys they want, pack some snacks, and we're off for a day of fun. The day is enjoyed by all. The kids get to

TK’s Chesapeake Cole Slaw

by TK July 20th, 2007| Recipes, Salads
Coleslaw is one of those crazy dishes that has about a thousand different variations. Some people make it with mayo. Some with vinegar. Sometimes it is sweet. Sometimes it is sour.

My coleslaw is more of a combination recipe, and it has the bite of Chesapeake flavoring (like you are eating
