Bourbon & Vanilla Peaches

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 19th, 2018| Appetizers, Desserts, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Bourbon & peaches- a new classic combination




We spent a weekend in Melbourne, Florida, in June to celebrate my brother's birthday. Arriving on Friday afternoon, they suggested we meet them at Downtown Produce to finish party shopping and do a wine tasting. Wine + family time = YES!

Roasted Rhubarb Crostini

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 21st, 2018| Appetizers, Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

A simple spring dish that has complex flavors




All of our palates change with time, I assume. I know mine has. It's a topic my husband and I often discuss: what dishes didn't you eat as a kid that you love now? One of the items on my "wouldn't

Strawberry Rhubarb Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 19th, 2018| Recipes, Salads, Tapas Monday

A delicious duo of spring produce




As spring draws to an end in New Hampshire, we have some local produce available. With a winter that stretched well into March, seeing freshly picked fruits and veggies in the market is exciting. Rhubarb and fiddleheads are among the first produce items

Slightly Spicy Eggplant & Tomato Sauté

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 3rd, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

It's a side. It's a dip. It's a spread. It's delicious.


In some recent travels, we ended up having breakfast at a deli. I had the most amazing challah French toast, and my husband had white fish salad. Happiness for both of us. We enjoyed our food there so

Crockpot Queso with Chorizo

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 22nd, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Mmm. . .Queso. Need I say more?




I love queso. I love lazy Sundays. Don't they make an excellent pairing? They did for me the other weekend. With a Sunday filled with around the house items (study for wine exam, watch one of our horses race, do a little

Roasted Zucchini with Feta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 20th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday

Sometimes simple is the best preparation.




One of the beautiful things about being a fan of cooking is that most of the time I enjoy menu planning. Sure, I have the occasional day where I really don't want to think about what dinner will be, but usually I'm pretty

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 13th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A bite-sized appetizer, perfect for cocktail parties!


I recently hosted a cocktail party for a group of colleagues. Being the empty nesting, "in the city" member of the board, I wanted to have a gathering that aligned with that thinking. Rather than having any sit-down food, I planned a

Saucy Bourbon Meatballs

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 16th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

An appetizer with hints of bourbon- why not?


January arrives, and it's time for a fresh start. All of the shimmering decor of the holidays is put away, and life in general becomes quieter. As a parent of college-aged students it brings about an even greater amount of quiet,

Buffalo Cauliflower Florets

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 17th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
The other weekend ended with the same feeling for both my husband and me; we were full from a weekend of eating.  The odd thing about it was that we hadn't eaten a lot.  There were no extravagant desserts or over-sized meal.  We ate a little less healthily over

Apple & Sage Bruschetta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 25th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A sweet & savory fruit topping that tastes like fall.


Fall is in full swing, which means that the local orchards are overflowing with apples. There are so many varieties and so many ways to prepare them that fall becomes this apple-fest for me. I make the obvious dishes,

Portobellos with Wine Poached Lobster

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 6th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

This is what indulgence tastes like.


This delightful recipe was the appetizer in our 5-course anniversary dinner back in July. As beef was the entrée, I wanted a different protein to be part of the appetizer. What says special occasion better than lobster? I guess other types of shellfish

Linguisa & Mushroom Stuffed Peppers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 4th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A few ingredients, lots of flavor.


When I was creating this recipe, I wanted the stuffed peppers to be part of an afternoon snack menu and, as such, wanted them not to be large, filling dishes. For that reason I chose cubanelles as the pepper for this recipe. They're
