Eggplant Parmesan Dip

by TT August 2nd, 2010| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
About this time of year, many gardens are overflowing with produce.  That isn't a problem we figured we would have this year, as we planted a modest garden of some container plants and a small plot of pepper plants.  However, a couple weeks ago our one patio eggplant ivory plant

I have been baking scones for over a decade.  They're an often requested breakfast dish and a favorite among family and friends.  Depending on which person you ask, the best scone filling varies: blueberry/white chocolate chip, cinnamon chip, chocolate chip.  As you can see from this list, I have stayed

We aren't fans of reality television at our house.  However, we do adore both Food Network and the Cooking Channel, which is why there is one reality show that we watch regularly:  The Next Food Network Star.  While we won't cancel Sunday evening plans to watch it, we have

At our house, fun dinners typically fall into one of two categories: make your own _________ (could be pizza, panini, quesadilla, etc.) or munchies.  Recently, we had a make your own panini night, which made that dinner fun for everyone.  As all of our tastes vary, the requests for

It is hot.

That's about all I feel inspired to write at this moment.  With temperatures in the high 90s and lots of humidity, the weather is less than comfortable.  As my mom (who lives in Florida) explains, I just am not used to these wonderfully warm days.  That is

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

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,

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,
