A former relative of mine used to bring this rice dish to family gatherings.  My children adored it.  When I asked for the recipe, I understood why this dish was popular- butter and salt.  For a weeknight dinner, it's a bit indulgent for my tastes.  For my children, well,

Korean Egg Custard- A Different Kind of Side

by TT November 3rd, 2014| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
When you make shrimp pancakes as an entrée, what do you serve as a side dish? If it is Tapas Monday, you serve egg custard and cucumber salad.  The pancakes were the center of the meal, the most filling part around which I built the rest of

Fresh Corn Cakes- Local Produce in a Delightful Package

by TT August 25th, 2014| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
Last Tapas Monday, I made a menu that placed a spin on southern flair.  I started with pulled pork, which I let simmer in a mini crock pot for the afternoon.  It was incredibly tender by the time our 8 o'clock dinner rolled around.  Rather than serving it on

We don't have a garden at our house, at least not a vegetable garden.  We have a small herb garden, and we have a decent amount of blackberry bushes. But that's it.  We have had gardens in the past, but over the past few years we've taken to traveling

Yogurt & Blueberries- A Cool & Light Summer Lunch

Many of my summer lunches tend to be produce-oriented.  As the options for fruits and vegetables increase in late July and August, I choose my meals based on a couple key questions.  One, do I want a cold or warm dish? Two, how filling do I want the dish to

Grilled Onions with Tomales “Bay Blue” Cheese

by TT September 23rd, 2013| Recipes, Side Dishes
Summer may be coming to the end, but that doesn't mean that grilling season ends along with it.  Even here in chilly-ish New Hampshire, we still are grilling dinners outdoors and probably will do so for a month or two longer.  Of course, the regular menu of hamburgers and

Warm Eggplant & Goat Cheese

It is so nice when the main dish for dinner can be planned based on a purchase at a roadside produce stand.  All summer, I have made several trips weekly to a local stand.  Even though there are two farms in town, I love to stop by this house

Creamy Polenta

by TT June 24th, 2013| Recipes, Side Dishes
Polenta is a popular dish in our house, for most of us.  In fact two of our teens and my husband absolutely adore this side dish.  When I make this dish as part of a dinner, I usually try to keep it healthy, using skim milk and little butter.

I spent several days with my parents last week.  On my last evening there I decided to cook dinner for the three of us.  Knowing that my mom enjoys lamb and my dad doesn't, I decided to make two types of meatballs: lamb for us and beef for my dad. 

Green Bean Bake

When we think about dishes special to the holiday season, there tends to be a focus on sweet items.  It seems that almost everyone has a grandmother, uncle, or other relative who makes a delicious cake or special batch of cookies every year.  However, there are other dishes that
