Winter Squash- The Base for Healthy Fall Soups

by TT October 17th, 2016| Recipes, Side Dishes, Soups & Stews
It's fall, which is my favorite season. I love feeling the hint of chill in the air; wearing knee boots and sweaters because they look good (not because it's subzero); watching the leaves change color; cooking and baking in my kitchen and filling the house with delicious aromas. Along with

Crockpot Cabbage and Apples

by TT October 5th, 2016| Recipes, Side Dishes
It's fall in New Hampshire, which means that I have apples at my disposal. We are surrounded by numerous apple orchards, so anytime I want to cook, bake, or just eat an apple, it's only a few minute drive to pick up a peck or so. Although I love to

Recipe: Spicy Mushrooms

by Jane Wangersky August 12th, 2016| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
I’ve always thought of mushrooms as something you put into or on top of other foods to make them more special -- not as a food that could stand on their own. But with the vegetable people suddenly sending me literal pounds of them every week, it was time to

Now that we've started to compile a list of some of summer's best bets for food lovers, we would be remiss not to suggest some super side dishes that would work well with seafood, salads, and other seasonal favorites. Refreshing fruits are always a go-to during warmer months, so that's
pickled peaches

Recipe: Pickled Peaches

by TT August 3rd, 2016| Recipes, Side Dishes
Pickles are a popular snack in our house. At a bare minimum we always have a jar of kosher dill pickles in the fridge. However, we also usually have an assortment of other veggies: beets, carrots, onions. My husband and I have spent a number of fall weekends making our

Zucchini is available everywhere; make it a healthy part of taco

Recipe: Radish Cakes

by Jane Wangersky July 22nd, 2016| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
The great thing about radishes is that I know I can grow them myself. I did it one summer when I was eight or nine. That was the first and last time, because somebody had to eat all those radishes, and I didn’t really like them. I had grown them

Recipe: Grilled Zucchini Salad

by TT May 18th, 2016| Recipes, Salads, Side Dishes
I don't grill all that often at home. It's not that I'm not capable, but it's something my husband really enjoys. While I adore cooking and baking, grilling is something I can take or leave. I enjoy the social aspect of it, but I'm just as happy to let someone
homemade applesauce

Recipe: Homemade Applesauce

by TT November 30th, 2015| Recipes, Side Dishes
Applesauce that comes in a jar has never been exciting for me. It can be pretty flavorless or overly sweet. When my son was little, however, it was the easiest way to get him to eat fruit. So, I would buy the all-natural applesauce, and he would gladly eat
brussel sprouts

Recipe: Balsamic & Bacon Brussel Sprouts

by TT November 9th, 2015| Recipes, Side Dishes
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
fried leftover rice

Recipe: Fried (Leftover) Rice

by TT November 2nd, 2015| Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes
Dinners at home have been a bit sketchy this fall. First, there are only three of us at home most of the time. Of course, we've been that way for over a year, so we're used to that. Second, my husband has had an increase in travel, which means
quinoa risotto

Recipe: Quinoa Risotto with Mushrooms & Goat Cheese

by TT October 5th, 2015| Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes
Quinoa has been all the rage for several years, as it is a low carb, high protein side dish. I have been cooking with it for the last three or so years and have discovered a few things. First, it works well in both hot and cold dishes. I've
