July has been the month of cold dishes.  Icy cold from the refrigerator, refreshing on the palate sort of dishes. I will end this month with another delightfully cooling dish, but this one is special.  It isn't an any night of the week dish (at least in my opinion.)  Rather

Taco Salad

This salad is a long-time family favorite, as in it is a recipe that I enjoyed when I was a child.  If I remember correctly, my aunt gave it to my mom, and it became a salad that was made on a semi-regular basis by my mom.  When I

My cooking is seasonal.  I don't mean that I only cook items that can be locally sourced at that time of year but rather that I cook based on the weather. For example, winter is the time for stews, soups, and crockpot dinners.  My mom finds this style of

Last Sunday, the favorite NFL teams in our household were both playing at 1:00 pm.  The Patriots game would be watched on tv, and the Ravens game would be followed online.  So, with this simultaneous double header and everyone home, a round of snacks were in order.  On the

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

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

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

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

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

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
