Caramelized Apples

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 9th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes

Simple & sweet- what more could you want?




In a typical workweek, I leave a few blocks each week for recipe testing. While it's work, it's one of my favorite jobs. Unfortunately, my work/life schedule has been out of whack for a few weeks. Due to work and family

Thyme & Brown Sugar Apples

An elegant alternative to applesauce




It's October, and the apples are simply amazing in New Hampshire. Sure, you can find apples in the produce department all year long, but there's a huge difference between apples that were picked however long ago and shipped from wherever and apples that are

Homemade Applesauce

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 2nd, 2018| Recipes, Side Dishes

No need for store-bought when homemade is so simple.




I haven't made homemade applesauce in a while. I attribute that to the fact that I am cooking only for two and also that we haven't been apple picking in a couple years, so there isn't an abundance of apples

Roasted Beets

An important & easy how-to for beets


As I reread this article, I considered how much more prevalent beets are in my life. It's a fairly regular occasion that I roast beets for use in some dish on our menu. I also almost always have a jar of pickled

Pickled Peaches

A bright, refreshing way to serve peaches




When summer arrives, so does a great amount of fruit. Our minds often turn to transforming the fruit into a dessert, be it a pie, ice cream, crisp, or some other sweet treat. While I like some sweetness, I also like some

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

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 3rd, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes

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

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 3rd, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

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
