Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

Maple Brown Sugar Rolls

With all that the online world has to offer when it comes to recipes, I still love magazines and I still tear out recipes I want to try and keep them in a file. I’ve had too many Pinterest fails – gorgeous photos and results that are seriously lacking in flavor. This recipe comes...

Southwestern Pork and Mango Skewers with Avocado Mash

Southwestern Pork and Mango Skewers with Avocado Mash

Another healthy one for the resolutioners (which is me this year, sort of). I get hurt with my birthday timing. As of January first I’m like, ok, time to go veggie-heavy and lose the holiday weight. Then my birthday comes on the 15th and I’m like, “I’ll have the burger. And fries. And beer.”...

Napa Cabbage Slaw with Apple and Walnuts

Napa Cabbage Slaw with Apple and Walnuts

I love cabbage, especially in slaw, and especially when that slaw isn’t a mayo-y mess. When I’ve tried to “wing it” in the past, I’m never pleased with the result. A few reasons why this recipe just nailed it. One, Napa cabbage (sold at every grocery store, though you may never have noticed it)...

Chipwiches

Chipwiches

I love that I got the red dotted underline on this post’s title. Yes, chipwich isn’t technically a word but everyone in the English speaking world knows what one is, especially if they’ve ever partook of the magic that is the Ice Cream Truck. So, America’s Test Kitchen, like usual, found a way to...

Red Wine Braised Beef Stew

Red Wine Braised Beef Stew

Last winter I was hosting something – maybe the Super Bowl? I can’t remember. Rich was on a new, super limited diet and my SIL has Celiac. I wanted make ahead, I wanted crowd pleasing, I wanted big-batch. My favorite menu for those specifications is usually Italian style pulled pork with broccoli rabe, long...

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

I enjoy lemon desserts – not as much as chocolate but they have their place. When I was in my more experimental baking phase (which also happened to be my childless phase, how do you figure), I used to love making lemon curd. I’d spread some on a warm biscuit with freshly whipped cream...

Simple, Perfect Brownies

Simple, Perfect Brownies

Brownies you can make in one bowl, using just a whisk? That’s my kind of dessert. The bake all at once (obviously) and freeze fabulously. I cut them small and pack one each day, from the freezer, in my daughter’s lunch box. Such an ideal treat. I love these – they cut well, come...

Salmon with Fresh Dill

Salmon with Fresh Dill

This is king salmon, which I know nothing about, but I think that’s why it’s more white in color. It was DELICIOUS. There’s a farmer at my grower’s market that is doing a 25 cent “give away” to celebrate the market’s 25th season. This particular Saturday it was dill. Dill is not my favorite,...

Cocoa Almond Granola

Cocoa Almond Granola

We go to Florida each year to visit my parents (they spend their winters there, much to my dad’s happiness but my chagrin) and this year, they treated us to a fab breakfast buffet. My daughter made herself a fruit, yogurt and granola parfait and apparently this was a first time meal for her....

Salad with Tuna, Egg and Parmigiano

Salad with Tuna, Egg and Parmigiano

When we lived in the West Chester borough we would hit a restaurant called Teca for dinner fairly often, as it was closest to the house and relatively healthy as far as eating out goes. They have a great menu but I couldn’t not get this one salad entree called “Teca Tonnata”. I would...
