Asparagus & Pea Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 8th, 2013| Recipes, Salads
The growing season in New Hampshire is quite short, so I try to utilize fresh, local ingredients when they are available.  Already we have enjoyed beet greens, fiddleheads, strawberries, cherries, rhubarb, and spinach from the farm near our house.  I know that in the coming weeks there will be

Watermelon & Celery Salad

Last week I wrote about the 7-course meal we made for our 17 year old's birthday celebration, sharing the recipe for caramelized orange peel.  As you may have guessed, creating a meal with this many courses provided more than one new recipe.  So, while there were tried and

Extra Crunchy Apple Salad

October.  The month of apples.  Seeing as the picking season has just come to an end I'm sure everyone's fruit crisper drawers in their refrigerators are chock full of those juicy red fruits.  But as delicious as they are, they are kind of a one note fruit.  You can

Raspberry Apple Feta Salad

This past week was insanely hot.  Specifically Tuesday and Wednesday.  Tuesday night, I was at Canobie Lake Park with my best friend so I was not home for dinner, although Wednesday all I had was gymnastics from 1-4 p.m. like I do every other Monday through Thursday.  And

Waldorf Salad Revisited

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 23rd, 2012| Recipes, Salads
After spending most of the afternoon at our daughter's gymnastics tournament, we were thinking of a meal that would be quick to prepare and filling.  My  husband suggested homemade steak subs with lots of veggies, and that seemed like a perfect solution.  Knowing that the subs themselves may not

Artichoke Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 4th, 2011| Recipes, Salads, Tapas Monday
On a recent Tapas Monday, I lacked creativity.  I had a meeting near a great Italian specialty shop, so I decided to seek inspiration there.  As I knew would happen, I wasn't disappointed.  I found more cheeses than one would need for a dinner for two, assorted cured meats,

Warm Beet Green Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 13th, 2011| Recipes, Salads, Side Dishes
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

Warm Cole Slaw

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

Brussels Sprout Salad

While my husband and I often bemoan the lack of specialty markets, as we live in a rural setting, we also are grateful for the abundance of local farms.  Unfortunately, many of our local farms close after Halloween, and we are left with nothing but grocery stores for our

Broccoli Apricot Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 13th, 2010| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads
In our house we always are trying new recipes.  Sometimes they fail miserably, sometimes they simply exist, and sometimes they are huge winners.  Last night I tried three new recipes, and all three were hits.  It was kind of like a hat trick for me.  Granted, two of the

Grilled Pineapple Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 28th, 2010| Recipes, Salads
Warm weather arrives in New England, and we become excited to cook outdoors.  Of course, there is the typical fare of hamburgers and hot dogs to please the palate, but a little variety makes grilling so much more enjoyable.

This past Saturday we decided to try our hands at more

Beet & Orange Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 11th, 2010| Recipes, Salads
Summer, the season of salads.  We tend to make many salads at our house, both as main and side dishes in this season.  Some have a base of greens; others are a combination of fruits, vegetables, or both.  Although we have our go-to salads, such as Caesar, we tend
