Flavors of Fall Brussels Sprout Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 9th, 2017| Main Dishes, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian
I really enjoy brussels 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

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

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

Shredded Beet Salad with Apples & Almonds

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 21st, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

The purple shade of this salad alone makes it worth trying!




I truly enjoy beets. In many different fashions. Pickled beets make a fine side dish on their own or as a topping to add a little zing to a salad. As for roasted beets, I have many, many

Southern Salad with Bourbon Vinaigrette

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 19th, 2017| Recipes, Salads, Tapas Monday
This is another one of those recipes where I wonder if my loose usage of terminology causes consternation for others. I'm calling this a southern salad. Why did I name it as such? Two of the main ingredients are peaches and pecans. As a person who has lived in New

Grapefruit and Mango Salad with Avocado Dressing

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 27th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads
Wrapping up the second week of our vegetarian series, I am sharing a salad recipe. Maybe it seems like a cop-out because most salads are vegetarian, but I will defend this choice for two reasons. One, I served this salad with Twice Baked Butternut Squash in order for us to

Cooking with Apples- Savory Style

by TT Editors October 3rd, 2016| Appetizers, Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Main Dishes, Recipes, Salads, Sandwiches
October is one of my favorite months. I love that the days have a hint of warmth and the nights are cool. The sun sets earlier in the day, which makes it perfect to light some candles and give the evening a cozy feel. Along with the delightful change in
