Thanksgiving Stuffing- Part 1

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 8th, 2011| Recipes, Side Dishes
As regular readers know, I am not a chef.  However, I have a great passion for working in the kitchen, trying new recipes, and playing with food.  Therefore, almost every recipe I post is one that I have created.  The other recipes that I post are classics from family

This past Saturday my husband and I planned to spend our day hiking and running errands, which would be followed by a slow-cooked meal for two.  We knew that we were expecting a snowstorm, so it seemed the perfect night to let short ribs braise in the oven while

Stuffed Tomatoes

Canning and freezing season is in full swing at our house.  A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend making one batch of canned tomatoes and creating all sorts of peach items: peach and tomato salsa, peach jam, pickled peaches, peach-infused vinegar, peach-infused vodka, and peach bread.  Our basement shelves

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that seems destined for filling with ingredients.  Growing up, my mom frequently stuffed zucchini with spinach, which made a delicious dish that could be served as an entrée or side.  This spring I created a tomato-stuffed zucchini topped with mozzarella.  As both of

Zucchini Fries

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that I wish was available locally all year long.  Sadly, its stay is much shorter than that, and it is a vegetable that doesn't freeze well whole.  So, while zucchini is available I like to cook with it frequently.

I have served zucchini in numerous

Warm Beet Green Salad

As I was preparing this post, I was thinking about my affinity for greens.  Although I tried, I couldn't think of a green that I don't like.  Escarole, swiss chard, kale, callaloo, and spinach are among the leafy vegetables I enjoy.  In fact, the green I like least is

Summer Squash Lasagna

Last night was the perfect night for a little bit of recipe experimenting.  Due to business travel and sporting events, I had only one other person at home with me, my 13 year old who had the start of a cold.  As she was a bit under the weather, a

Stuffed Zucchini

I have dabbled in the world of vegetarianism, so I am fairly comfortable with creating menus that do not include meat.  In fact, my 13 year old has been eating a vegetarian diet for five months, which has helped me create meals with meat that easily are transformed into vegetarian-friendly

Fresh Ricotta Soufflé

Cheese is a favorite food in our house.  Whether served simply with crackers, added to a recipe, or heated into a wonderfully gooey concoction, we like to keep an assortment on hand at all times.  In fact, when we have three or fewer varieties in our dairy drawer, someone usually

Caramelized Squash Bites

by Michele Pesula Kuegler December 22nd, 2010| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes
I think I have become obsessed with caramelizing foods.  As I started to write this post, I did a quick search of caramelized items in previous recipes.  I found recipes for the following caramelized items: onions, apples, puréed squash, and bananas.  While it may be a

Parmesan Squash Cakes

Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables, as I find it to be quite versatile.  From breakfast dishes, such as zucchini bread, to side dishes, such as zucchini stuffed with spinach and cheese, to entrées, such as stirfry, it is a wonderful ingredient.  Last year, I made Zucchini Cakes

Roasted Beets

Last week I wrote about my Beet & Orange Salad, which I thought was quite delicious.  However, I have to admit that I didn't always feel that way about beets.  When I was a kid, I turned up my nose at the offer of any sort of cooked
