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

Prosciutto Peaches with Raspberry Balsamic

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 23rd, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A fun way to get more fruit into your day.




With fresh peaches from the farm trip I mentioned on Monday, I was inspired to transform them. Yes, a couple peaches were eaten as is, but I wanted to find a way to make them into part of our

Mexican Corn Off the Cob

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 21st, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday

All of the flavors, a lot less mess.




I love summer and all of the local produce that it brings with it. Unfortunately, I've learned that for all of the excitement of my new urban setting, local produce is more difficult to acquire. There is a weekly farmers' market

Cherry & Thyme Bruschetta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 2nd, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Why should tomatoes get to be the only bruschetta topping?


When I had that night alone, which I referenced on Monday, I knew that although I'd enjoy a bowl of Chilled Blueberry Lemon Soup, that wouldn't be enough of a meal for me. I could have
