Roasted Butternut Squash

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 9th, 2009| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Side Dishes
Planning our menu for a mid-week dinner, I had decided on a pork tenderloin and broccoli, but I needed one more dish to complete our meal.  Although some sort of potato or rice dish would work, I was looking for something lighter.  I also wanted to make a dish that

Asparagus Saute

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 19th, 2009| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Side Dishes
Asparagus is a popular vegetable choice in our house.  In fact, it is so popular that it is often requested by the kids.  Well, some of them anyway. . .

So, with it being served as a side dish every few weeks, I have become bored with steamed asparagus.  However, the

Garlic and Thyme Infused Parnsips

We were forecast to have rain and snow this past Sunday.  So, after spending all day Saturday shopping, my husband and I were looking forward to a quiet day on Sunday.  As we had this whole weekend without any of our brood at home, we had only our dining pleasures

Banana & Strawberry Flambe

by Michele Pesula Kuegler 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 Michele Pesula Kuegler 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 Michele Pesula Kuegler 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.

However, the mess from cooking bacon on stovetop (even when using a lid or a splatter shield) often makes me

Caramelized Onions

by Michele Pesula Kuegler 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

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 4th, 2008| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes
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

by TK April 18th, 2008| Recipes, Side Dishes
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 Michele Pesula Kuegler 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.
