Warm Eggplant & Goat Cheese

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 5th, 2018| Main Dishes, Recipes, Side Dishes

Simple & delicious- two words that pair nicely for a quick meal.




At the start of spring in New Hampshire, it's hard to find fresh produce for a dish as simple as this. However, just returning from a mini-vacation to Charleston, South Carolina, it was nice to be on

Wrapped & Stuffed Dates

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 29th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes

They may not be pretty, but they sure are delicious!




Don't judge a book by its cover. It's true of these dates also. They look less than appealing. I completely agree and understand. BUT their flavor? It's out of this world. Take a sweet and tender date. Stuff it
A simple spread made of dates

Date Spread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 27th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Spreads & Sauces

This may be the easiest topping you could make that is delicious on toast or the perfect accompaniment for cheese and crackers




I wasn't sure what to call this recipe. The final product is spreadable. It also is made with fruit. Both of these led me to wonder, Is

Crockpot Queso with Chorizo

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 22nd, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

Mmm. . .Queso. Need I say more?




I love queso. I love lazy Sundays. Don't they make an excellent pairing? They did for me the other weekend. With a Sunday filled with around the house items (study for wine exam, watch one of our horses race, do a little

Chorizo Sausage Gravy

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 20th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

Add a little spice to your breakfast!


Sausage gravy is a newer breakfast item for me. Growing up primarily in New Hampshire with parents from California and Rhode Island, sausage gravy wasn't something made at home. With so many pancake and omelet options at most restaurants, it never occurred

Aunt Sue’s Pumpkin Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 8th, 2018| Breads, Recipes

Forget pumpkin spice; you need homemade pumpkin bread!




I know it's March, so pumpkin spice mania is practically nonexistent. However, I wrote about banana bread on Tuesday, so this recipe flashback seems timely. For many reasons. First, this is a recipe from my aunt's baking repertoire, which goes

Banana Bread

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 6th, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

One of those foods that feels like home.


I feel fortunate that when I was a child my mom made many homemade dishes, especially for our snacks and treats. Sure, there were cakes made from box mixes, but there also were made from scratch cookies, fruit crisps, and quick

Maple Oatmeal Scones

by Michele Pesula Kuegler March 1st, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

So much better than a bowl of oatmeal.




I'm not a huge fan of a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. It's ok but not something I get overly excited about. However, oatmeal cookies are something I do enjoy. The interesting thing is that my husband is the opposite. He

Lemon Scones- Two Ways

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 27th, 2018| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes

Sometimes it isn't A or B, it's A and B.


If you ask my family, their favorite baked good that I make is a scone. Even though this is an often requested treat, there aren't that many varieties in the Think Tasty archives. So, when I was considering what

Mexican Zucchini- A Zippy & Simple Recipe

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 22nd, 2018| Recipes, Side Dishes


Apparently I have a liking for zucchini recipes. Over the past ten or so years I've created about twenty zucchini recipes. Looking through the assortment, I thought this was the best to pair with Tuesday's new zucchini recipe, as it has the common thread of simplicity. When it's been a

Roasted Zucchini with Feta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 20th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday

Sometimes simple is the best preparation.




One of the beautiful things about being a fan of cooking is that most of the time I enjoy menu planning. Sure, I have the occasional day where I really don't want to think about what dinner will be, but usually I'm pretty

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 13th, 2018| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A bite-sized appetizer, perfect for cocktail parties!


I recently hosted a cocktail party for a group of colleagues. Being the empty nesting, "in the city" member of the board, I wanted to have a gathering that aligned with that thinking. Rather than having any sit-down food, I planned a
