  • Egg and Potato Sald with Bacon

    Recipe: Egg and Potato Salad with Bacon

    When I was a young adult person, pre-kids, I remember discovering this at the deli counter and wondering who the genius was who conceived of mixing egg salad AND potato salad together. Who?  If you know, please tell me, as I would like to properly thank this person. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan... MORE

  • Sliced Orange and Honey Roasted Chicken

    Recipe: Roasted Chicken with Orange Honey Mustard Glaze

    I don’t usually truss chickens for a very good reason.  I’m lazy, and I can never find string when I need it.  I made this chicken on a Sunday afternoon in Connecticut, and then carted it back to NYC for dinner because this was during our kitchen-free stretch, that prolonged 11 week (don’t ask) period...

  • london broil

    Recipe: Mustard-ey London Broil

    Now that I’ve discovered that tenderizing London Broil as well as marinating it results in a seriously juicy steak I am a big fan of this lower priced cut.  I’ve also now learned that not all London Broils are created equal. There is big discussion about how London Broil is not actually a cut of... MORE

  • slivered wedge salad

    Recipe: Slivered Wedge Salad with Buttermilk Dressing and Bacon

    Like many people, my eyes light up when I see a wedge salad on a restaurant menu. It’s just the perfect retro salad indulgence, the hunk of iceberg with its dearth of nutrients, the creamy dressing, the fat crumbles of bacon on top. I was busy in the produce section of the market the other... MORE

  • Brown Rice Vegetable Salad - half bowl

    Recipe: Vegetable and Brown Rice Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing

    This is the vegetarian side dish you’re always looking for when you’re hosting a crowd, or asked to bring something to a potluck.  Easy, healthy, flexible and PRETTY (use whatever vegetables, seasonings, and herbs you like). For the salad, in a large bowl combine the brown rice, carrots, cucumber, onion, radishes, celery, parsley and thyme.... MORE

  • queso corn dip with radishes

    Recipe: Hot Corn Queso Dip

    I’ve always loved the saying ‘everything in moderation, including moderation.” This is how I think about cooking and eating in general; I usually like to cook and eat pretty healthily, but sometimes I like to just roll around in cream and butter and cheese. And not low fat cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Butter.... MORE

  • an all orange school lunch

    Recipe: An All Orange School Lunch

    Bright and cheery, orange is a color that holds a host of possibilities when packing a school lunch. This one contains, cubed cheddar cheese, sauteed shrimp (I know, they are kind of pink, let’s just let that go), carrots, a peach, peach yogurt, and dried apricots. Click here to see the green lunch from last... MORE

  • zucchini ribbon salad

    Recipe: Zucchini Ribbon Salad

    I love tart, tart salads, the more vinegar or citrus the better.  My kids do, too; it’s not clear as to whether this is genetic, or environmental, but Jack has been known to just douse a plate of salad with vinegar at a salad bar, snub the olive oil, and I think if he were... MORE

  • bulgur wheat with zucchini and tomatoes

    Recipe: Tomato, Zucchini and Bulgur Salad

     This makes a very generous amount of salad, so it’s a good thought for potlucks, or just something to make at the start of the week and have ready to scoop out as a side dish or a ready-to-go lunch for the week.  I actually spend the week opening the fridge and eating two or... MORE

  • An alll yellow school lunch

    Recipe: An All Yellow School Lunch

    And now it’s time for that sunniest of colors, YELLOW!  Don’t mention that yellow is the color of the school bus. Grilled cheese (my kids love it at room temp), corn, peppers, apple sauce, popcorn, and a banana.... MORE
