Parmesan Squash Cakes

Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables, as I find it to be quite versatile.  From breakfast dishes, such as zucchini bread, to side dishes, such as zucchini stuffed with spinach and cheese, to entrées, such as stirfry, it is a wonderful ingredient.  Last year, I made Zucchini Cakes

Grilled Pineapple Salad

Warm weather arrives in New England, and we become excited to cook outdoors.  Of course, there is the typical fare of hamburgers and hot dogs to please the palate, but a little variety makes grilling so much more enjoyable.

This past Saturday we decided to try our hands at more

Roasted Beets

Last week I wrote about my Beet & Orange Salad, which I thought was quite delicious.  However, I have to admit that I didn't always feel that way about beets.  When I was a kid, I turned up my nose at the offer of any sort of cooked

Beet & Orange Salad

Summer, the season of salads.  We tend to make many salads at our house, both as main and side dishes in this season.  Some have a base of greens; others are a combination of fruits, vegetables, or both.  Although we have our go-to salads, such as Caesar, we tend

Homemade Tzatziki

by TT June 7th, 2010| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
When one thinks of meatballs, usually some sort of marinara accompanies it.  However, if the meatballs are made of lamb and have seasonings that lean toward a Greek-inspired dish, then you need a sauce to match.  For me, that is cool and creamy tzatziki.  Made with Greek yogurt, cucumber,

Lamb Meatballs

It is almost the end of the workday on Friday, and yet as I type, I am thinking wistfully about Monday evening.

Thinking about a Monday happily on a Friday?! It might seem odd, as Friday is the start of the weekend, and Monday is the start of the workweek.  So,

Balsamic Reduction

by TT May 21st, 2010| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
As I sat here, mentally preparing this post, I had an internal debate: Is making a balsamic reduction a recipe, or should I create a helpful hint category?

The part of my brain that thought recipe won the debate, though by no means was it a firm and final decision. 

Balsamic Chicken

Sometimes simple is what you are seeking in food.  Sure, I enjoy making sauces, sautéing vegetables, and creating new flavor combinations.  However, it also is nice to enjoy food that is less complicated.

This was the case on a recent Sunday.  That Sunday was a day of indulgence.  We had no

Apple Crisp

by TT May 5th, 2010| Desserts, Recipes
Ever since I was a child, I have enjoyed homemade apple crisp.  Growing up in New England, I was fortunate to enjoy the fall with freshly picked apples and usually batches of hot from the oven apple crisp.  Although my mom wasn't necessarily an avid baker, she did enjoy making

Oven Baked Burritos

One of the great things about having access to a grocery store with a fabulous butcher is the amazing variety of meats we can purchase.  When we first visited this grocery store, we were excited to see sections for lamb and veal, each of which were as big as the

Yogurt & Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

by TT April 19th, 2010| Breads, Recipes
Sometimes recipes are created because of the ingredients that happen to be in my kitchen.  This recipe is the perfect example of that.  Yesterday afternoon I noticed that the two bananas remaining from a recent shopping trip were very ripe.  I also knew that most likely they wouldn't be eaten

Simple Cheese Sauce

by TT April 16th, 2010| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
On Wednesday I posted the recipe for Black Bean & Beef Nachos.  In the directions, I noted that you can top the nachos with either shredded cheese or cheese sauce.  As observant readers would have noticed in the picture, the kids opted for a cheese sauce topping on their
