We are amidst the holiday season, and by this time you may be feeling worn of cooking for seasonal get-togethers. And yet, there's still more to come. Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve- they all loom ahead, filled with fun and food. At this point, the idea of buying

Recipe: Cranberry Vinaigrette

by TT December 8th, 2015| Recipes, Salads, Spreads & Sauces
Fresh cranberries are available in most grocery stores during the fall and through New Year's. Every year I say that I will buy a few extra bags and freeze them, but I always forget to do so. However, what I do manage to do is buy them frequently and

Saturday, September 26th is Johnny Appleseed Day. While that may not be a reason to gather the family for a dinner or decorate your living room with apples, it is a fun day to cook a snack for, especially if you have younger children. When my kids were preschool

Recipe- Local Corn Salsa

by TT September 7th, 2015| Recipes, Salads, Spreads & Sauces
We are a little bit more than midway through corn season, so it is time to cook with it. All too soon we'll have to switch to the bags of local corn we've frozen over the summer or, worse, turn to store-bought bags of frozen corn. However, we're still

Homemade Parsley or Basil Pesto

by TT April 6th, 2015| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
When I first tried pesto, I was in college, and I found it to be rather unenjoyable. So, for the next decade or so I avoided eating it. No pasta dishes, no dipping sauces, no appetizers that contained pesto. Then about a decade ago, I gave pesto another try,

by TT March 30th, 2015| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
It is no secret that I adore salad. Give me some fresh greens and interesting toppings, and I am a happy person. Whether it be strawberry, green beans, and almonds; black beans, corn, and peppers; or simple Caesar, I love eating salad. It is so refreshing, healthy, and delightfully

Blueberry Goat Cheese Spread

by TT April 28th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I really enjoy having fruit included in wraps.  This addition of fruit started in a typical way, adding cranberry sauce to my turkey sandwich during post-Thanksgiving leftover meals.  Seeing an apple and turkey sandwich on a menu ages ago was what inspired me to try other combinations.  Since then

Almost Tartar Sauce

by Jane Wangersky April 25th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Spreads & Sauces
Tartar sauce is one of those sauces whose names give you no idea what's in them; for the record, it contains no cream of tartar. Most people have no idea what's in it, but most people expect to see it on the table, or in a little packet on

Asian Lettuce Wrap Sauce

by TT April 21st, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Ever since I discovered lettuce wraps several years ago, I have been obsessed with them.  I don't have the biggest of appetites, so using lettuce as the delivery system for a meal has been fabulous.  Instead of being able to sample only one burrito or wrap, I can have

Before my husband and son started their get healthy diet, we had a Tapas Monday dinner with an Italian theme.  There were grilled eggplant wheels topped with seasoned ricotta, garlic and cheese chicken sausage bites, and homemade focaccia served with dipping oil.  It was an indulgent and tasty

Sweet Asian Barbecue Sauce

by TT April 7th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces, Tapas Monday
Last week my almost 18 year old son and husband started a get healthy diet.  Neither needed a major change in diet, just a reduction in portions and elimination of too frequent splurges (chips, ice cream, etc.)  With Tapas Monday falling on Day 1 of the diet, I wanted

Artichoke Dipping Sauce- Balsamic Version

by TT February 3rd, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Two weeks ago I wrote about the dipping sauce that my family enjoyed with our steamed artichokes.  Theirs was a creamy, mayonnaise-based sauce.  While it was tasty in its own right, I like only a small amount of mayonnaise.  Thus, I really wasn't interested in dipping leaf after
