A BLT Chaffle

By |May 17th, 2023|Categories: Breakfast Food, Main Dishes|Tags: , , , , |

Mike and I are BLT fans and have always loved the simplicity of this iconic sandwich. Imagine biting into perfectly toasted bread smeared with mayo then topped with crispy bacon, lettuce, and a juicy tomato... it’s not only satisfying but delicious. There’s so much goodness in this crunchy sandwich. It can’t be beat. Plus, it can be enjoyed for [...]

Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

By |April 23rd, 2023|Categories: Main Dishes|Tags: , , , , |

Here's a flavorful recipe you can make with or without meat. I have made it both ways and they are equally delicious. So, if you are looking for a great dinner idea for Monday's meatless menu...look no further! In our house it's portabella mushrooms filled with homemade tomato sauce, sautéed spinach, and topped with creamy goat cheese. Add a [...]

Stuffed Peppers

When a pregnant woman talks you listen... especially when she's talking about food and especially if she's your daughter. Cravings... maybe but not sure?!?! Recently I spent a day with Talia, my eldest and the bearer of our first grand baby and I offered to make dinner while I visited. She didn't think twice when she suggested Stuffed Peppers. [...]

Tzatziki & Curried Cauliflower Steaks

Four years ago, Talia and I embarked on a European journey through the Mediterranean. Part of our journey included three Greek Islands: Corfu, Santorini, and Mykonos. It seemed our sole mission was to experience tzatziki at each island and that we did. Each island had its own take on the yogurt-based dip, but each one left us completely and [...]

Okra Stew

By |January 4th, 2023|Categories: Main Dishes, Soups|Tags: , , , , , |

There is something comforting about Okra. Maybe it’s because I associate okra as a staple of southern cuisine...think gumbo...comfort food to the max! But there is also stewed okra, fried okra and the delectable taste of pickled okra to name a few other dishes. I absolutely love okra and can’t get enough of this amazing fruit, aka vegetable! Here [...]

When it come to seafood, salmon is my absolute favorite to prepare. It is a weekly staple in our household and never disappoints. I like it because it not only tastes good but it's also one of the most nutritious types of fish you can eat. Salmon is an excellent source of protein, high in omega-3 fatty acids, B [...]

Quiche Lorraine

By |November 10th, 2022|Categories: Breakfast Food, Main Dishes|Tags: , , , , , , |

Quiche Lorraine is my obsession this week. It's a classic French tart named after the Lorraine region of France. It's a pleasing dish which comes together with ease and is most satisfying. I love the flakiness of the crust and the perfect texture of eggs that are filled with smoky bacon, caramelized onions, beautiful mushrooms, and cheese. Cheese excites [...]

Shakshuka is one of my favorite breakfast's colorful, flavorful, and downright delicious! And with Christmas just eight weeks away and a houseful of family joining us Shakshuka will be my go-to recipe for our Christmas Day brunch. It's a simple, yet elegant dish made with eggs poached in a delicious tomato stew. Shakshuka is layered in flavor, which [...]

This past week Mike and I travelled to upstate New York to see his parents. The drive was breathtaking with the autumn colors in full swing. The further north we travelled, the more brilliant the leaf color. New York in October is tradition for us, not only is it our favorite season for visiting, but it's also cherished time [...]

Balsamic Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

I absolutely love…and I mean love buying cookbooks and cooking magazines! Mike will attest to this obsession of mine. I have them stacked up everywhere with many of them dog-eared to recipes that are tried and true to ones that I want to try. My favorite go-to pork tenderloin recipe is one I found in a Paleo Magazine some [...]

For Meat Lovers!

By |February 24th, 2018|Categories: Main Dishes, Uncategorized, Wine|

Several weeks ago my yoga instructor said, "Yoga is not about the movement, yoga is about the happiness it brings." And, it does. I truly feel euphoric after a 60-minute class of hot yoga. To me, yoga is a lot like cooking. It's not about the process, it's about the result. And last night's result was beyond delicious and [...]

Winging It!

By |November 19th, 2014|Categories: Main Dishes, Recipes|

The other day I had a hankering for chicken wings and not the kind you purchase at a grocery story or at a restaurant, but the homemade kind. I was first introduced to buffalo style chicken wings when we lived in New York State. I will never forget that first bite…I knew then, I was addicted. They were tangy, hot, [...]

Beef Tenderloin at its Best!

By |November 18th, 2014|Categories: Main Dishes, Recipes|

Beef tenderloin is an absolutely wonderful cut of meat to serve guests, and if grilled to perfection, it literally melts in your mouth! It is an expensive cut, but well worth the price for a special occasion. Mike is my grill master and I can always count on him to grill the meat to perfection. He uses a Perini Ranch [...]
