Recipe: Mango Whisky Cream

by Jane Wangersky June 30th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
An ice cream dish with a kick -- that was what I wanted to create this week. Something for grownups who haven’t outgrown ice cream yet but whose tastes have matured a little. Maybe it was the thought of Father’s Day, maybe it was recipes like this, or maybe

Banana Caramel “Ice Cream”

by Jane Wangersky June 23rd, 2016| Desserts, Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s ice cream week here at TT, which means I could’ve simply used ice cream as one of my starting ingredients . . . but somehow I couldn’t get into that. For one thing, my family tends to like ice cream as is, with maybe the occasional ice cream cake

I love ice cream, as do most of my New England friends. I think I read somewhere that we eat more than any other geographic region in the USA. Yay, us!

This summer my daughter is working at a local ice cream stand. Visiting her there could become a very bad

Father’s Day is all about breakfast or brunch for your dad, and a bowl of cereal is not going to cut it. So here’s a hearty but quick and easy dish for the occasion. I don’t recommend it for kids, as it involves lots of high temperatures and hot grease,

What makes a food an appetizer? The last time I took on this question, I concluded an appetizer had to be a one- or two-bite finger food with some little touch that made it special. This time, looking to create an appetizer specifically for a barbecue, I decided it should

For a moment earlier today, as I stood splitting a frozen bagel into eighth-inch slices, I wondered if I’d gone way off track with what was supposed to be an “easy” appetizer. But once the slicing is over, these really are easy; also quick, and you can make them days

Recipe: Ridiculously Easy Fruit Dip

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 1st, 2016| Appetizers, Desserts, Party Snacks, Recipes, Simple Solutions
In the past I have published recipes that don't really qualify as recipes. Some may say that mixing two ingredients to form a new dish or sauce isn't really cooking, but it does serve a purpose in my kitchen repertoire.  For that reason, today I am presenting a 2-ingredient dip

Recipe: Mango in a Jar

by Jane Wangersky May 26th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
The classic Joy of Cooking says in praise of mangoes, “When chilled and eaten raw, they are as good as any peach-pineapple-apricot mousse you can concoct -- rich and sweet but never cloying.” (Though it adds, “If unchilled, they sometimes have the faintest savor of turpentine.”) This fruit needs very

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

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

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,
