Roasted Beet Terrine

I have to admit our first Tapas Monday in 2017 was pretty amazing. I think it was partially because the dishes came out so well and partially because we hadn't had a real Tapas Monday in quite some time. The entire time in the hotel was a wash. After moving

Our first Monday in our new home was a bit busier than usual. I was wearing the dual hats of my work life, as always. Added to that I was still settling myself into our home. With our daughter just home from college, I wanted to be available to help

Rosemary Mixed Nuts

As a child, before holiday dinners there may have been an appetizer or two: deviled eggs, celery with cream cheese, or cheese and crackers. Nothing fancy but something to stave off the hunger. The one appetizer that I remember at almost every holiday was a bowl of mixed nuts and

I was insistent that living in a hotel for a month would not mean that we would need to cancel Tapas Monday. Yes, there occasionally have been Mondays where life got in the way of our candlelight dinner for two, but hotel life wasn't going to be a barrier. For

The new year is quite often a time for renewed efforts at exercising and better eating. After all of the excess of the holidays, many strive to start the year with a clean slate. In my household, my husband has made that resolution, which is one I am glad to

Recipe- Madrid Stew, Tapas Style

Our sister publication, Good Life Review, has focused on the destination of Madrid for the month of August. Here at Think Tasty, we've decided to provide our readers with our own spins on a classic dish from this city, the aptly named Madrid Stew. This author has

Ridiculously Easy Stuffed Peppers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 27th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Peppers have been on the editorial calendar for weeks, and for most of that time I have pondered how to make peppers into a star ingredient of a dish. It seems that most of the time I use peppers as an accent or condiment when cooking. I have made

We've had a couple rainy Sundays in a row. Father's Day we had rain until the mid-afternoon, which made for a good excuse to stay inside and relax. The next Sunday was even rainier, as it never let up for the entire day. Add to it that it was

Strawberry Feta Pizza

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 25th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
When we chose strawberries as one of our theme ingredients I was determined not to use it only as a dessert. After last week's chicken salad recipe, I thought I might switch gears and utilize these berries as a sweet treat. However, as Tapas Monday drew near, I had

Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus- 2 Ways

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 4th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
I love asparagus. It's a vegetable I like to use in a variety of ways. Sometimes it is simply steamed until al dente and served as a salad topping. Other times it is grilled and served as a side dish with our dinner. On a fairly regular basis I

Zucchini & Fresh Mozzarella Cakes

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 12th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
After last week's recipe, this week's recipe seems like a health food.  Granted the ratio of mozzarella to zucchini is about 1:1, so it really isn't a low calorie, low fat appetizer. But when viewed in perspective of indulgent cheesy bread with its entire stick of butter

Total Indulgence- Cheesy Pull Apart Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 5th, 2015| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
If it hasn't been transparent in my years of writing for Think Tasty, I eat in a healthy manner. I do enjoy unhealthy food, but I try to limit it to weekends and Tapas Mondays. Of course, if you asked my husband, he would tell you that my unhealthy
