Banana & Strawberry Flambe

by TT January 30th, 2009| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
With a French theme started for Monday night's tapas dinner, we needed to create a dish to compliment the Chicken Cordon Bleu Meatballs.  The meatballs seemed like they could be a pinch on the heavy side, so I wanted to make something lighter, most likely with a fruit or

Zucchini Tomato Bliss

On Wednesday, I found myself in an unusual situation:  I was going to be alone for dinner.  With my husband away on business and the kids not home until after dinner, it would be a party of one for my evening meal.  Needing to retrieve the kids at 7:00 didn't

Pureed Caramelized Squash

by TT December 5th, 2008| Recipes, Side Dishes
When creating our Thanksgiving menu, I tried to consider the likes and dislikes of all four diners.  However, for one of our dishes I felt that the preference of three diners outweighed the dislike of the fourth diner.  And with that decision, I added Pureed Caramelized Squash to the

Splatterless Bacon

by TT November 5th, 2008| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes
All of my children and my husband love bacon.  So, for a lazy weekend breakfast or a summer burger barbecue, there is often the request to have bacon with the meal.

Caramelized Onions

by TT October 29th, 2008| Recipes, Side Dishes
As a child, I would have picked onions out of many dishes.  I wouldn't have wanted them on a salad, in a sandwich, probably not in a soup either.  However, with age I developed a more adventurous palate.  In fact, I still am opening my mind to new foods, but

Two-Cheese Baked Grits

For many people a weekend morning without plans is the perfect occasion for sleeping late.  For me, it is the perfect time for a big, homemade breakfast.  At our house, the kids often request my cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip scones, pancakes, or waffles.  However, if the kids aren't

Deep-Fried, Beer-Battered Onion Rings

For my most recent birthday, 2 of my children got me a present I always wanted - a good countertop deep fryer. With the help of my soon-to-be-wife they made the selection of an Emeril LaGasse/T-fal Deep Fryer.

One of the first items that I decided to make was Beer Battered

Wilted Spinach

Thursday was a busy afternoon in our house. With both of the adults having appointments in the afternoon, we knew that dinner would need to be an easy to prepare meal. Trying to eat healthier meals, we didn't want to go the fast food route.

Brussel Sprouts with Lemon

by TT December 21st, 2007| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Side Dishes
Brussel sprouts.  Just the name alone can make people say, "No, thank you," to a dinner invitation.  Probably one of the least liked vegies for kids, it is a tasty side dish for many meals.  I learned just how unpopular this vegetable is at the grocery store the other day.
