Aunt Sue’s Pumpkin Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 8th, 2018| Breads, Recipes

Forget pumpkin spice; you need homemade pumpkin bread!

I know it's March, so pumpkin spice mania is practically nonexistent. However, I wrote about banana bread on Tuesday, so this recipe flashback seems timely. For many reasons. First, this is a recipe from my aunt's baking repertoire, which goes

Carrot Cupcakes

Basically, it's carrot cake on the go.

When I wrote this carrot cupcake recipe, I was surprised that it had been four and a half years since I shared my original carrot cake recipe. As I type this, it's been five and a half since I originally posted the

Last Thursday I shared my family's recipe for Almond Cookies.  As I was considering what family recipe I should share next, I decided it would be more interesting to share recipes from other members of the Wasabi Media family.  Today, I am  pleased to share a recipe from an

Bourbon Sauce #2

On Monday, I shared my ridiculously easy recipe for Eggnog Ice Cream.  While the ice cream is delicious in its own right, a simple ice cream such as this really begs for toppings.  Of course, my kids would prefer to top their ice cream with hot fudge, but that

Eggnog Ice Cream

On Christmas Eve, we celebrate with a six-course meal.  I know, that does sound like a lot of food.  However, the original plan my husband had suggested was a ten-course meal.  After a little discussion, it was determined that six was far better than ten.  With the meal eaten over

Recipe: Double Apple Crisp

by Jane Wangersky September 2nd, 2016| Desserts, Recipes
It’s another one of those years when our Gravenstein apple tree is bearing more fruit than we know what to do with. A couple of years ago, I noted that Luther Burbank once wrote: “It has often been said that if the Gravenstein could be had throughout the year,

Recipe: Rice with Summer Vegetables

by Jane Wangersky August 26th, 2016| Recipes, Vegetarian
Some vegetables just taste like summer -- red onions, fresh tomatoes, zucchini, radishes -- especially if they’re raw or barely cooked. Even so, it can be hard to eat enough of them. There’s just something about a whole zucchini, or even a radish, that makes it seem like too much

Recipe: Tomato Sauce with Fennel and Zucchini

by Jane Wangersky August 19th, 2016| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I don’t usually serve vegetables on the side when I make pasta with tomato sauce -- I like to say the sauce is the vegetable dish. It not only makes for a healthier, more interesting sauce, it saves on dishwashing. And, though it takes less than half an hour to

Recipe: Spicy Mushrooms

by Jane Wangersky August 12th, 2016| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
I’ve always thought of mushrooms as something you put into or on top of other foods to make them more special -- not as a food that could stand on their own. But with the vegetable people suddenly sending me literal pounds of them every week, it was time to

Recipe: Spicy Cucumber Salad

by Jane Wangersky August 4th, 2016| Recipes, Salads
Cucumbers are ripening on farms and in gardens all over the continent right now. They’re one of those mild vegetables often served along with spicier stuff to balance it out. This time, I decided, I was going to team them up with lots of spicy stuff, plus one or two

Recipe: Summer Fruit Jam

by Jane Wangersky July 29th, 2016| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
The lady at the corner produce store was a little surprised when I said I was going to make jam with the cherries I was buying. She sees plenty of home canners in there every summer, and not many of them bother with cherries. When I got home and began

Recipe: Radish Cakes

by Jane Wangersky July 22nd, 2016| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Vegetarian
The great thing about radishes is that I know I can grow them myself. I did it one summer when I was eight or nine. That was the first and last time, because somebody had to eat all those radishes, and I didn’t really like them. I had grown them
