Buffalo Cauliflower Florets

by Michele Pesula Kuegler October 17th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday
The other weekend ended with the same feeling for both my husband and me; we were full from a weekend of eating.  The odd thing about it was that we hadn't eaten a lot.  There were no extravagant desserts or over-sized meal.  We ate a little less healthily over

Incredibly Cheesy Bread

For Sunday football watching this week, we decided on meatballs as one of the snacks.  I had thought that the meatballs would be the feature of this column, as I added pepperoni to the mixture.  Unfortunately the pepperoni was lost, and they tasted pretty much like basic beef-based meatballs.

Zucchini Bread Pancakes

If we have a Sunday morning in which the teens are at home and there's no need to rush out the door, I enjoy making a hearty breakfast.  Quite often I will solicit a request from the teens or my husband, making the decision of what to make so

Banana Blueberry “Ice Cream”

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 20th, 2017| Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

This really could be a breakfast dish.


Monday featured a dish that embraces fall. Today I have a dish that begs summer to stay for a few more days. I mean, you can eat ice cream all year long, but I primarily treat it as a summer food. Who

Tangy Cream Cheese Frosting

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 13th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Serve it atop a cake or a spoon; it's your choice!


As I worked on my recipe for Margarita Cake with a Kick, I wondered what sort of frosting should be paired with it. I debated some sort of coconut frosting but didn't want to lose

Portobellos with Wine Poached Lobster

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 6th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

This is what indulgence tastes like.


This delightful recipe was the appetizer in our 5-course anniversary dinner back in July. As beef was the entrée, I wanted a different protein to be part of the appetizer. What says special occasion better than lobster? I guess other types of shellfish

Linguisa & Mushroom Stuffed Peppers

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 4th, 2017| Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

A few ingredients, lots of flavor.


When I was creating this recipe, I wanted the stuffed peppers to be part of an afternoon snack menu and, as such, wanted them not to be large, filling dishes. For that reason I chose cubanelles as the pepper for this recipe. They're

Caramelized Pecan Biscotti with Salted Butterscotch Glaze

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 30th, 2017| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

Crunchy, sweet, & salty- these biscotti have it all.


As I wrote on Monday, I mostly eat healthfully. However, I do have a sweet tooth, which I keep under control more often than not. Sometimes, though, I just need to give into the cravings. (Although I do try and

Mexican Corn Off the Cob

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 21st, 2017| Recipes, Side Dishes, Tapas Monday

All of the flavors, a lot less mess.




I love summer and all of the local produce that it brings with it. Unfortunately, I've learned that for all of the excitement of my new urban setting, local produce is more difficult to acquire. There is a weekly farmers' market

Chocolate Swirl Rolls

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 16th, 2017| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

Chocoholics, be excited. I've found another way to deliver chocolate to you!


A couple tidbits about me:

  • I thoroughly enjoy baking.

  • I love cooking for others.

  • I am not a big fan of chocolate.


All three of those facts play into today’s menu. On a recent Friday morning, I made

Asparagus Feta Lemon Salad

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 14th, 2017| Recipes, Salads

Asparagus, meet your new best friends, feta and lemon!


Every year for our anniversary I create a multi-course meal to celebrate the occasion. The only definite part of the menu is dessert, which is wedding cake with fruit filling and buttercream frosting. I shoot for a minimum of five

Sweet & Creamy Cholula Sauce

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 9th, 2017| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces

A little heat, a little sweet


Yes, ketchup is an invaluable condiment. There are many times that it's my preferred choice for dipping or topping. Sometimes, though, you need to mix things up. For example, my coconut crusted sweet potato fries. Dipping these semi-exotic fries in a basic condiment
