Roasted Stuffed Tomatoes

Roasted Stuffed Tomatoes

Remember that commercial for back-to-school where the parents dance through the aisles buying school supplies, as It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year plays in the background? I thought it was so mean when I was young. Now? I’ve never felt such a strong […]

Shrimp and Couscous Salad

Shrimp and Couscous Salad

If you are looking for a way to work more North African semolina in granules made from crushed durum wheat into your diet then this is the recipe for you! Ok that string of words is just the definition of couscous, and it probably wouldn’t […]

Broccoli Carrot Slaw

Broccoli Carrot Slaw

Those stories of housewives before us who cooked and baked without recipes make me skeptical. Just a few handfuls of this, pour in some of that, moderate oven, simmer for a few hours -I’m just not sure I believe all that. I am impressed by these […]

Chinese Pickles

Cucumber Salad with Cream Cheese

Cucumber Salad with Cream Cheese

Antipasto Pizza

Antipasto Pizza

Antipasto pizza – a pizza with salad as its topping – might sound like a complete oxymoron. But think about it. Antipasto pizza is really just a delicious pile of veggies, meat and cheese that you scoop into your mouth with a crispy, yummy crust as the vehicle rather than […]

Drunken Fruit Salad

Drunken Fruit Salad

Remember our Blueberry Cake? What we didn’t tell you before is that when  you top it with whipped cream and this Drunken Fruit Salad, it will be the best thing you have ever eaten. The blueberry cake is delicious, and the cream and the drunken […]

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette

This ham and veggie salad was quite the pleasant surprise. This is a don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover situation. It is not much to look at, but I can promise you it is worth a try. I love ham, but I really only considered it a holiday meat, or […]
