Jello salad

Happy New Year! We are going to start the new year off bright! I’m back from my holiday hiatus and thank you for your patience and well wishes while I took some time to be with my family during the holidays. After the loss of my Mother in November, it was a quiet Christmas. As […]

Dilly Beans

What a delightful, magical day I had today! Sometimes you just have to stop life and take time to spend your day with the ones you love. I bring to you today my best friend Kay’s mother’s recipe for dilly beans. Kay and her Mom have been such a positive force in my life for […]

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I hit it out of the park tonight….with such a simple recipe. One of my life long’s dreams is to get Hubby to appreciate Brussels sprouts. Try as I may, my attempts never registered on his “yum” meter. He basically would eat them out of obligation with maybe a grunt of recognition. No grunts tonight….only […]

RoastedZucchiniGratin

I have a serious problem. When I go to local farmer’s markets this time of year, I can’t control myself. I buy everything! My head goes into a spin – “Oh, I’m going to make this” “Look how beautiful and FRESH these veggies are!” “I haven’t made anything with these in a long time…” And […]

Charred Corn Salad

Yes-sirree…it’s here! It’s officially summer and along with summer comes… Fresh produce from local farmer’s markets…especially corn! Here in Ohio – corn is king and it’s a celebration when farm fresh corn arrives. I’m celebrating it’s arrival with this colorful healthy charred corn salad that I found from the Kitchenette blog. It’s so easy to […]

Today is a melancholy day – this week would have been Nonnie’s birthday. Two years ago, Nonnie left us for a better place. It was her time and she left behind warm memories and a large footprint on everyone’s life. Nonnie was my girls’ Jewish grandmother always making traditional Jewish foods like mandel bread, matzo […]

I just came back from a two day retreat and it seemed like all I did was eat! Full breakfasts, creamy sauces and dessert with every meal. I was craving veggies and a simple supper. Plus I missed my kitchen… As I was going through my mail, I saw a Penzy Spices catalog and found […]

corn

Wait! Stop! Summer’s not over yet! There’s still corn… and tomatoes…. and moreĀ  corn…. As summer slowly dwindles into fall, I find myself hanging on to the last of summer’s harvest. The family is a bit burned out with ears of corn served at every meal – it was time to try something different. This […]

thymepotatoes

Why? Why do what we do to sweet potatoes? We cover them with marshmallows…with sugar…with syrup….brown sugar…and butter. Why can’t we just let them be their own sweet self? Sweet potatoes have been so misunderstood. Every Thanksgiving we are forced to deal the latest sugary-coated recipe. Here’s a recipe where the potatoes rule…enhanced only by […]
