Why should cucumbers be the only pickled veggie?

Although this is our first summer living in our new loft, this isn't our first summer without a garden. We've traveled more during the last few summers and, as such, haven't had anything besides an herb garden. When you're on the

Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 26th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

All the flavors of strawberry cheesecake with almost none of the work.

I do love cheesecake, as does my family. It's a delightfully indulgent dessert to be enjoyed on a birthday or special occasion. However, it requires careful baking. Don't want to underbake it and deliver a cheesecake that

Edamame Avocado Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 24th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads, Vegetarian

Hearty enough to be an entrée; simple enough to be a side.

I've mentioned that I happily partake in vegetarian eating, although it's not a lifestyle to which I'm committed. I do love a tender filet mignon, good barbecue, and, of course, chicken on my caesar salad. However, I

When you want a little crunch with your watermelon

Since I've shared two watermelon recipes this week, I might as well continue with watermelon in my flashback. As opposed to Monday's recipe, this salad could use a little time in the fridge. It's still fairly simple

The easiest, homemade dessert ever

So, there aren't supposed to be themes on Think Tasty anymore, but I can't help it if I've had a bit of a watermelon kick. With watermelon in the house to make the Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad, my daughter mentioned making

Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad

A perfectly patriotic side salad

Sometimes the name of a recipe doesn't need to be catchy or cute; it just needs to describe what you're eating. Thus, today we have Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad, which I should have published a few weeks ago. The problem is that I didn't

A Sweet, Simple Dip for Summer

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 14th, 2017| Friday Flashback

Last minute cookout quandaries be gone.

We've all had those moments. You get a text from a friend that she's holding an impromptu cookout for a few friends. All you need to do is bring a dish to share. Since it's last minute, no one would care if you

Broccoli Apple Bacon Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 10th, 2017| Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Salads

If the broccoli & apple don't get you, I'm guessing the bacon will.

I feel fortunate to cook for people who aren't picky eaters, as it seems that many other people are. When I talk with friends and colleagues, discussing last night's dinner, I've had many say, "My family/husband/kids

A Cake Made for Summer’s Berries

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 7th, 2017| Friday Flashback

The perfect cake for summer. Birthday candles optional.

I love the months of June, July, and August for the fact that there are local, fresh berries available in each month. At some point in June, the NH strawberry fields are ripe and ready for picking. As this season wanes,
