Balsamic Roasted Veggies

For the second Tapas Night of 2010 I decided to give it a Greek theme.  My original plan was to serve lamb sausage.  However, when I checked the freezer I discovered that we had lamb sausage, but it was bulk sausage.  A scoop of sausage just isn't as appealing as

As I mentioned previously, we celebrated Thanksgiving away from home this year.  While our Italian dinner of lasagna, spaghetti, and meatballs was enjoyed, we missed having a turkey dinner. We returned home just after midnight on Sunday, giving us a day to catch up before returning to our regular schedule

As I mentioned recently, this time of year I stop by local orchards on a weekly basis.  When I went to an orchard a couple weeks ago, I decided to check out their winter squash offerings.  With cool weather making itself permanent, I have been craving squash.  However, I tend

I actually made this dish at the end of July when peaches were first in season in New Hampshire.  However, I forgot about this simple appetizer until yesterday.  That was when I went into the cheese drawer in refrigerator and discovered that I had two new blocks of blue cheese.

With my husband traveling on business last week, all of the parenting responsibilities were mine, which meant a lot of time was spent driving children to their activities.  So, in the interest of my sanity, I decided to take a shortcut or two in my cooking.

One night we had homemade

Last week when I asked our eleven year old daughter what she wanted for dinner, she requested haddock and green beans.  For some kids that might mean fish sticks and canned veggies but not our daughter.  Nope, she wants fish from the seafood counter that we bread lightly and fresh

I broke one of my baking rules yesterday, which is that baking yeast breads should be done in cool weather only. It should be noted that though my house has central air, something about knowing the weather outside is hot make me not want to complete all the steps required.


PopPop’s Strawberry Shortcake

Bringing two of the kids to Delaware for a weekend with their grandparents, we decided to celebrate PopPop's birthday a week early.  Instead of purchasing some random golfing accessory, we opted to make his birthday dinner his present.  Planning dinner was the easy part- he's a meat and potatoes sort

We attended a friend's 40th birthday/housewarming cookout this past Saturday.  As the hosts were providing the main part of the meal (a pig roast plus hot dogs and hamburgers), guests were asked to bring a dessert or side dish.  With a family of six, we decided we should bring one

Summer can be such a short season in New England.  This year it seems like it may be very short after the cool, rainy start summer had.  However, days of temps in the 80s and extra humidity have arrived, making summer's presence well known.

While some may complain that it's too

Tomato Basil Bruschetta

As I wrote in my last post, we recently enjoyed a Saturday dinner of Italian appetizers with friends.  The inspiration for the Italian theme was the ready to be picked basil plant on our front porch.  I love using fresh basil in recipes, most often in tomato-based dishes.  Whether

On a recent Saturday night we had our best friends over for dinner.  As we usually end up standing around our kitchen counter instead of sitting at the dining room table or lounging in the living room, making a variety of appetizers seemed to be the best menu.
