Recipe: Cranberry Vinaigrette

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 5th, 2017| Recipes, Salads, Spreads & Sauces
Fresh cranberries are available in most grocery stores during the fall and through New Year's. Every year I say that I will buy a few extra bags and freeze them, but I always forget to do so. However, what I do manage to do is buy them frequently and

Flavors of Fall Brussel Sprout Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 9th, 2017| Main Dishes, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian
I really enjoy brussel sprouts, as do my husband and children. There are a fairly regular side dish in our menu. Whether they're simply sauteed with some lemon zest or balsamic vinegar, they are a veggie we all enjoy. However, sometimes I like to take this vegetable and transform it

Recipe: Autumn-Inspired Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 26th, 2017| Main Dishes, Recipes, Salads
When I first had children, I imagined all of the Halloween treats that I could make. Pumpkin-shaped cookies, Halloween-themed cakes, and other treats came to my mind. Sure, I made a few of these for school parties, but then I realized that there already was an abundance of treats

Warm Butternut Apple Salad

Fall flavors + pancetta = yum


I'm in the midst of seasonal transitions here in New Hampshire, as many of you probably are. Last week it was so chilly at night that I thought about closing the windows. (I didn't but added a blanket. There's something about a cool

Creamy Cucumber and Pea Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 28th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian

Nice and creamy, but also nice and healthy.


Yes, I know. I have a fixation with healthy foods. I frequently am thinking of ways to convert recipes from high fat, high calorie dishes into slimmer, trimmer dishes while keeping lots of flavor. I can admit that sometimes you just

Asparagus Feta Lemon Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 14th, 2017| Recipes, Salads

Asparagus, meet your new best friends, feta and lemon!


Every year for our anniversary I create a multi-course meal to celebrate the occasion. The only definite part of the menu is dessert, which is wedding cake with fruit filling and buttercream frosting. I shoot for a minimum of five

Edamame Avocado Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 24th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian

Hearty enough to be an entrée; simple enough to be a side.




I've mentioned that I happily partake in vegetarian eating, although it's not a lifestyle to which I'm committed. I do love a tender filet mignon, good barbecue, and, of course, chicken on my caesar salad. However, I

Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 17th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

A perfectly patriotic side salad




Sometimes the name of a recipe doesn't need to be catchy or cute; it just needs to describe what you're eating. Thus, today we have Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad, which I should have published a few weeks ago. The problem is that I didn't

Broccoli Apple Bacon Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 10th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

If the broccoli & apple don't get you, I'm guessing the bacon will.


I feel fortunate to cook for people who aren't picky eaters, as it seems that many other people are. When I talk with friends and colleagues, discussing last night's dinner, I've had many say, "My family/husband/kids

Citrus Brussel Sprout Slaw

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 3rd, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

Who knew that oranges could be such a good part of slaw?


When we go to one of my favorite local restaurants, The Foundry, I often think about ordering their Crispy Glazed Brussel Sprouts. They have this delicious blood orange glaze and are delightfully crunchy. The onlydrawback to them

Parmesan Polenta Croutons

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 29th, 2017| Garnishes, Recipes, Salads

Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside.


As I've mentioned, our new go-to restaurant for just the two of us is The Foundry. I've also mentioned that they have my all-time favorite croutons in a recent Finally Friday column. As a fan

Mango Salsa

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 28th, 2017| Recipes, Salads, Spreads & Sauces

It looks and tastes like a bite of summer.


This salsa is so eye-appealing that some people assumed it was a side salad. The person in particular was my daughter. I had made crunchy, baked haddock for fish tacos and served it with shredded beet salad
