Coconut Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 15th, 2018| Recipes, Side Dishes

Apparently sweet potato and coconut were meant to be together.




When I plan each week's schedule I create a new recipe and then find an archived recipe with a similar theme. This week the new recipe is Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies. As I searched my files for

Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts with Capers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 10th, 2018| Recipes, Side Dishes

Salty with a hint of sweet, it borders on perfection.




How do I love brussels sprouts? Let me count the ways. I love them shaved and turned into a salad. I love them sautéed with a sprinkling of lemon or garlic. I love them roasted and topped with balsamic

Pickled Kale Spears

Totally transform the way you think about kale stems.


I'm guessing that most of you, myself included, remove the thicker stems from kale and either throw them in the trash or compost. I mean, they're these woody, dense pieces of the kale plant. In fact, that's why for a

Warm Eggplant & Goat Cheese

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 5th, 2018| Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes

Simple & delicious- two words that pair nicely for a quick meal.




At the start of spring in New Hampshire, it's hard to find fresh produce for a dish as simple as this. However, just returning from a mini-vacation to Charleston, South Carolina, it was nice to be on

Slightly Spicy Eggplant & Tomato Sauté

It's a side. It's a dip. It's a spread. It's delicious.


In some recent travels, we ended up having breakfast at a deli. I had the most amazing challah French toast, and my husband had white fish salad. Happiness for both of us. We enjoyed our food there so

Mexican Zucchini- A Zippy & Simple Recipe

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 22nd, 2018| Recipes, Side Dishes


Apparently I have a liking for zucchini recipes. Over the past ten or so years I've created about twenty zucchini recipes. Looking through the assortment, I thought this was the best to pair with Tuesday's new zucchini recipe, as it has the common thread of simplicity. When it's been a

Roasted Zucchini with Feta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 20th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday

Sometimes simple is the best preparation.




One of the beautiful things about being a fan of cooking is that most of the time I enjoy menu planning. Sure, I have the occasional day where I really don't want to think about what dinner will be, but usually I'm pretty

Homemade Rice Pilaf- An Indulgent Side

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 30th, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes
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,

Recipe: Balsamic & Bacon Brussels Sprouts

The buzz may be that Thanksgiving is all about the turkey, but for me (and I think lots of other people) it's really all about the side dishes. Yes, I do enjoy a slice or two of white meat and gravy, but it's the side dishes that I dream

Brûléed Butternut Squash- Guaranteed to Please

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 2nd, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes
Two weeks ago I wrote about the easiest way to cook butternut squash.  If I only needed to serve myself, I would make squash this way and top it with the smallest amount of brown sugar and cinnamon. However, I usually have at least two other diners.  One of

Shredded Butternut Squash Cakes

I have been making zucchini cakes as an appetizer or lunch dish for ages. When they are in season, they're one of my favorite things to make on a work from home day. Yet, for some reason, it never occurred to me to make these cakes with winter

Mexican Corn Off the Cob

All of the flavors, a lot less mess.




I love summer and all of the local produce that it brings with it. Unfortunately, I've learned that for all of the excitement of my new urban setting, local produce is more difficult to acquire. There is a weekly farmers' market
