Recipe: Red Coleslaw

by Jane Wangersky May 19th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
We’re in an interim season right now, not only for the weather, but for fresh produce. It’s hard to tell from one day to the next whether it’s going to be a good day for barbecuing. And while a fresh salad goes naturally with grilled meat, we haven’t yet had

Recipe: Sweet and Spicy BBQ Pork

by Jane Wangersky May 12th, 2016| Main Dishes, Recipes, Simple Solutions
Barbecued meat is one of those flavors of summer, and while it’s great grilled just as is, a little or a lot of spice makes it even better. Here’s a simple but spicy pork dish you can cook either out- or indoors (because you never know when it might rain

Recipe: Chocolate Charlotte

Lots of moms see Mother’s Day as a break from cooking, and while I’m an exception to that (which has something to do with why I’ve ended up writing cooking articles), your mom should have some time off from the kitchen if that’s what she wants. So here’s a really

Recipe: Hot Supper Sandwiches

by Jane Wangersky April 28th, 2016| Main Dishes, Recipes, Simple Solutions
“Sandwiches for dinner” sounds, somehow, as if someone’s coming up short, not doing their job, possibly just bringing out a loaf of cheap white bread and a jar of generic peanut butter instead of cooking. Well . . . why? Why are sandwiches perfectly fine for lunch or a picnic,

Recipe: Quick Avocado Sauce for Pasta

by TT April 27th, 2016| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Simple Solutions, Spreads & Sauces, Vegetarian
In our house, we are pretty one-dimensional in our use of avocado. It is either used on its own to top a sandwich or burger or turned into guacamole. I know there are plenty of other uses for avocado: hidden in brownie recipes, added to smoothies, and more. When I

Quick dinners are divine! Simply because there is nothing better than coming home from a long day and being able to whip up a fast meal that is both easy to make and mouthwatering to taste. This New Ulm Bavarian Omelet from innkeeper/chef Ramona Sonnenberg from Deutsche Strasse Bed

Recipe: Quick Pasta Primavera with Shrimp

by Jane Wangersky April 21st, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Primavera means spring, but pasta primavera has come to mean a dish that includes pretty much any vegetables you happen to have around, spring, winter, or whatever. It makes a nice change from pasta with tomato sauce, though you can include tomatoes of any kind (sun-dried, fresh, canned, maybe even
taco meat

Recipe: Flavorful Taco Meat in a Flash

by TT April 20th, 2016| Main Dishes, Recipes, Simple Solutions
In my house, tacos and burritos have been a standard, busy night dinner for a very long time. When the kids were little, it was a simple meal. Heat some refried beans, sprinkle with cheese, and enjoy. Then my son hit his teen years, and these vegetarian dishes weren't enough.

Recipe: Baked Egg and Cheese

by Jane Wangersky April 14th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Vegetarian
Though Easter is still visible in the rearview mirror, I’m not tired of eggs yet, and I’m not about to be. For one thing, I don’t eat meat, and eggs are one of the best alternative proteins. For another, there are so many different things you can do with them,

Recipe: Quick Lentils and Rice

by Jane Wangersky April 7th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Vegetarian
I’ve had this recipe -- well, the base recipe for it -- since the late 1980’s, even longer than I’ve had my glass casserole dish. Over the years the two have become, not quite inseparable, because the glass dish is useful for lots of other things, but let’s say longtime

Recipe: Baseball Snack Mix

by Jane Wangersky March 31st, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Baseball and Cracker Jack go together, in real life as well as in our minds (unlike baseball and apple pie -- seriously, when did you ever see anyone eating pie at a baseball game? Anyway, you can’t make apple pie with just four ingredients). Thanks to the song, so do

Recipe: Cheese Brunch Squares

by Jane Wangersky March 24th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
This quick and easy stand-in for quiche was inspired, strangely enough, by a recipe for lemon bars that I’ve been using for a few months. The base layer was so much like pie crust and so much easier to make that I began thinking of other ways I
