Sweet Potato Latkes

by TT November 9th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday
Spending four days last week without power was an interesting experience, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  Although we didn't have power or hot water, we had access to many conveniences.  We were able to cook on our stovetop, as we have a gas stove.  We

XO on Elm

by TT October 25th, 2011| Restaurant Reviews
A little over a month ago, my husband and I attended the annual wine tasting and auction for the Palace Theatre.  It was a fabulous evening of (You guessed it!) wine tasting that ended with an auction.  Of course, there were other pieces to this evening, such as some

Stuffed Mushrooms

by TT September 26th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes
A recent Sunday was filled with a nice combination of events:  a few hours of work in the morning, a few hours of back to shopping, a little bit of cooking, and finally, hanging out with the family while eating and watching the Patriots game.  Although it may not have

Stuffed Tomatoes

Canning and freezing season is in full swing at our house.  A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend making one batch of canned tomatoes and creating all sorts of peach items: peach and tomato salsa, peach jam, pickled peaches, peach-infused vinegar, peach-infused vodka, and peach bread.  Our basement shelves

Baba Ghanoush

by TT September 13th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
First, I know that the spelling of this yummy dip may not be the way you've seen it in other recipes or cookbooks.  However, baba ghanoush is one of those words that has multiple accepted spellings.  So, I chose the one that I liked best!

Now, on to the important stuff-

Blackberry Bruschetta

by TT August 10th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
We are fortunate to have wild blackberry bushes in our backyard.  However, most summers there aren't that many berries on the plants.  In fact, there usually are only enough for the kids to pick and eat.  Of course, I'm not going to complain about kids thinking that blackberries are a

Zucchini Fries

by TT July 21st, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that I wish was available locally all year long.  Sadly, its stay is much shorter than that, and it is a vegetable that doesn't freeze well whole.  So, while zucchini is available I like to cook with it frequently.

I have served zucchini in numerous

Summer Squash & Zucchini Bruschetta

by TT June 29th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Although I am not a vegetarian, I am a huge fan of produce.  Some of my favorite meals are based around fruits and vegetables.  So, this time of year is quite exciting for me.  After a long winter and spring with almost no freshly picked produce, it is a delight

Rhubarb Chutney

by TT June 6th, 2011| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I love the arrival of warm weather.  Not only does it mean that the cold sensation in my fingers and toes should disappear, but it also means that there will be more local produce available.  These local options provide us with inspiration for many meals and snacks.

Yesterday we stopped

Benedictine Dip

by TT May 16th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes
My husband loves watching the Kentucky Derby.  In fact, I think it is one of his favorite sporting events of the year.  Horse racing is a newer to me sport, but enjoyable nonetheless.  We have celebrated this event at home and at the racetrack.  This year, we had a high

Mini Mushroom Tarts

by TT May 4th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
For this week's Tapas Monday I knew that I would be braising short ribs.  Although I could have made a gourmet dinner of short ribs and sides, I wanted to stick with the regular tapas format.  Some roasted broccoli was the second dish to come to mind, so I needed

Apple Amaretto Chutney

by TT April 25th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes, Spreads & Sauces, Tapas Monday
Monday nights are a favorite for my husband and me, as we have a tapas meal to end the day.  However, his business travel schedule has been such that many Mondays in the past month weren't of the tapas nature.  So, when he was home last Monday, both of us
