Homemade Rice Pilaf- An Indulgent Side

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 30th, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes
A former relative of mine used to bring this rice dish to family gatherings.  My children adored it.  When I asked for the recipe, I understood why this dish was popular- butter and salt.  For a weeknight dinner, it's a bit indulgent for my tastes.  For my children, well,

The buzz may be that Thanksgiving is all about the turkey, but for me (and I think lots of other people) it's really all about the side dishes. Yes, I do enjoy a slice or two of white meat and gravy, but it's the side dishes that I dream

Brûléed Butternut Squash- Guaranteed to Please

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 2nd, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes
Two weeks ago I wrote about the easiest way to cook butternut squash.  If I only needed to serve myself, I would make squash this way and top it with the smallest amount of brown sugar and cinnamon. However, I usually have at least two other diners.  One of

Shredded Butternut Squash Cakes

I have been making zucchini cakes as an appetizer or lunch dish for ages. When they are in season, they're one of my favorite things to make on a work from home day. Yet, for some reason, it never occurred to me to make these cakes with winter

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

Coconut Crusted Sweet Potato Fries

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 7th, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes

Apparently sweet potato and coconut were meant to be together.


I have this love-hate relationship with sweet potato fries. I think that their sweetness and flavor make them a much tastier treat than regular french fries. However, if I make them at home, I bake them and struggle to

Healthy Green Bean Bake

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 1st, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

All of the flavor of the original but not one bit of canned goods involved!


My kids have always been fans of the classic green bean bake. I have to admit that I also like it, but it always feels a lot less like eating a veggie

Individual Sweet Potato Casseroles

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 31st, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday, Vegetarian

What's not to like about a dish that's topped with marshmallows?


Growing up sweet potatoes or yams topped with marshmallows never graced our table. We had the ever popular green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and homemade cranberry sauce among other sides but no veggies with marshmallows,

Baked Cauliflower Tots

Tater tots. It is the childhood favorite side that seems to be appearing everywhere lately. That even includes Think Tasty, as you'll be seeing a new recipe that utilizes them in a recipe that will be shared in two weeks. But I digress. Tater tots may be a flavorful side

Wine Braised Mushrooms

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 31st, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
I do not love the cold of winter, but I do love the cooking that it inspires. There's nothing quite like a day with subfreezing temperatures and a kitchen filled with warming dishes. Sometimes it's bread rising and baking. Other times it's a pot of soup simmering away for the

Italian Roasted Carrots

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 24th, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
This recipe is a perfect example of my liberal definition of Italian cooking. I have no idea if this is a dish that is made in Italy, but the spices I used to season the carrots are Italian. For me anyway, basil and oregano always evoke thoughts of Italian food.
