Cheddar Potato Soup

by TT March 28th, 2011| Recipes, Soups & Stews, Vegetarian
A couple weeks ago we had a taste of spring, and it was wonderful.  However, it was only Mother Nature teasing us because although the calendar says it's spring, the weather has been anything but spring-like.  With temperatures topping out in the high 30s and fairly windy days making

Beet Cake

by TT March 23rd, 2011| Desserts, Recipes
This recipe was one where I really wasn’t sure what the end results would be.  We had a great amount of beets that needed to be used.  While I love roasting them either as a side dish or a topping for a salad, not everyone else is as keen on

Honey Mustard

Every time I start to write one of these "recipes", I have this feeling of ridiculousness.  Most of the "recipes" require almost no cooking and very few ingredients.  However, that was point of creating this category.  They truly are simple solutions, little hints or tricks that can make meal

Popcorn- Two Ways

by TT March 16th, 2011| Appetizers, Recipes
Our oldest had his braces removed a month and a half ago, which ended his ban from certain foods, such as caramel and popcorn.  While no one in our house is mad about popcorn, it is nice to be able to make this treat while watching a movie or when

Veal Rollatini

by TT March 7th, 2011| Main Dishes, Recipes, Tapas Monday
Veal is newer to the list of foods that I like.  I used to refuse to try it quite adamantly and, thus, didn't know what I was missing.  Finally, at some point in time, my husband ordered it while at a restaurant, and I agreed to try a bite.  While

Winter Stirfry

by TT March 3rd, 2011| Healthy Cooking, Main Dishes, Recipes, Vegetarian
It is two months into the year, and we have been successful with our goal to use only locally sourced meats, produce, and dairy items.  While it has made meal planning a little more challenging, it has been exciting to visit our biweekly farmer's market to see what produce will

Banana Cream Pie

by TT February 14th, 2011| Desserts
Although I am not a regular dessert eater, I do enjoy an occasional indulgence in the land of sweets.  That being said, pie is not one of my favorite desserts.  I'd far rather have cheesecake, a slice of non-chocolate cake, or ice cream.  However, when my husband and I took

Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls

by TT February 9th, 2011| Desserts
The 5th Annual Peku Super Bowl party was a success.  An assortment of salty and savory snacks provided an evening of eating enjoyment.  We covered quite a range of preferences with our dishes.  From classic Buffalo wings to healthier (but still yummy) roasted green beans, our appetizers were enjoyed by

Quick Help for the Super Bowl

by TT February 4th, 2011| Appetizers
I am not one who loves spending her Sundays watching football.  In fact, about one game per Sunday is good for me.  Of course, if there is cooking involved, I can keep my interest for a couple games, as I will spend a decent amount of the time in

Mashed Potato Pancakes

by TT February 2nd, 2011| Recipes, Simple Solutions
If your children are like mine, then they adore mashed potatoes.  I don't make them often, maybe once every few months.  However, when I do make them, I prefer to make a larger batch.  My purpose is two-fold.  One, there are leftovers for the kids.  Two, I can make

Creamy (Yet Lowfat) Carrot Soup

by TT January 24th, 2011| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Soups & Stews, Vegetarian
While I am not a vegetarian, I find many all-vegetable dishes to be exciting.  I do enjoy lamb shanks and braised beef short ribs, but I also enjoy Moroccan vegetable stew equally as much.  Now that one of our daughters has decided to give vegetarianism a try, I have

Vanilla Coffee

by TT January 21st, 2011| Simple Solutions
Today's simple solution is a little different than usual.  This recipe involves no cooking; in fact, it isn't even a recipe.  However, it is a kitchen hint that I think is worthy of sharing with my fellow coffee lovers.

Working from my home office, I consume at least four cups
