Brussels Sprouts & Sausage

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 5th, 2012| Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes
It may be the first week of January, but I still have recipes from our Christmas Eve feast to share.  As I was considering what recipe to share next, I decided that since I started with dessert I should continue to work backward through the meal.  Thus, the next

Thanksgiving Veggies

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 16th, 2011| Recipes, Side Dishes
Every family has their traditional side dishes.  As a child, my mom always made the classic green bake, complete with cream of mushroom soup and french fried onions.  It was guaranteed that you would find a baking dish of it somewhere amongst all the other dinner items.

While there is

Thanksgiving Stuffing- Part 2

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 11th, 2011| Recipes, Side Dishes
Earlier this week, I shared two different stuffing recipes: one that has a base of focaccia and one with a base of wild rice.  Unique and flavored with their own set of ingredients, they are sure to please.  Today, I have two more stuffing recipes, but these have

Sweet Potato Latkes

Spending four days last week without power was an interesting experience, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  Although we didn't have power or hot water, we had access to many conveniences.  We were able to cook on our stovetop, as we have a gas stove.  We

Thanksgiving Stuffing- Part 1

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

Rosemary Spaetzle

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 entrĂ©e 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

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 13th, 2011| Recipes, Salads, Side Dishes
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
