Thursday Doors – Boats — Jean Reinhardt

After last week’s chilly, grey Thursday Doors post I thought blue skies and boats might be called for. Boat doors come in all shapes and sizes. The first few images are of Ballycastle boats. You would never think it was the middle of winter looking at these photos. The clouds look a bit chilly and […]

Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Cutlets — Season Generously

For Trevor and me, January means fewer carbs and less sugar. We like to go a bit lighter this time of year given all the heavy, glutinous food that comes around the holidays. This is one of those dishes that I love to make because it’s a meal made in all one pan. It’s super […]

I love one pan and one pot dinners! Just amazing! This is an easy no-fuss meal cooked in the oven on one sheet with a marinade that has a distinct Meditteranean flavor from the lemon juice, olive oil and oregano. Use chicken thighs or legs , I prefer dark meat for this but if you insist on using white meat –go […]

Ricotta Gnocchi in a Three Cheese Sauce — Fabulous Fare Sisters

I love Gnocchi! I order it when we are out and I make it when we are home. Now that I am making my own ricotta, it was time to tackle Ricotta Gnocchi. My first attempt, I have to admit, was more like ricotta soup… but I did not quit and finally found the correct […]

Nutella Sea Salt Cookies — My Tuck Box

I’ve always been a fan of Nutella (I mean, who isn’t?) but as I’ve grown older I find it too sweet to have it the way I used to. Earlier I didn’t even need bread, just a spoon and a jar of Nutella were fine 🙂 As my palate has evolved , I’ve grown to […]

Thursday Doors – Winter — Jean Reinhardt

Welcome to another Thursday Doors post, this one is all about winter. I love the crisp, cold days we get here at this time of year. We probably have less rain during this season than we do in summertime. Irish summers have a watery reputation. In winter, the weather and temperature can change a lot […]

With Trevor and I eating healthier in January, I wanted to find a muffin recipe that didn’t have any processed sugar in it. I’m trying to limit the sugar intake of the kids pot holidays since they had too much! Anyone else?!? Of course, I found an amazing one by Half Baked Harvest! It uses […]

Favorite sauces — IZZY’S KITCHEN AND PIZZERIA

Last week I posted five of my go-to spice blends. This time the focus is on sauces, spreads, dips, dressings – it’s all in how they’re used. Some are especially good with grilled meats, some are great as salad or noodle dressings, some beg for a crusty bread for dipping. And some are good for […]

The hasselback cooking technique (or hasselbacking) is not only good […]

A creamy turkey and mushroom pasta bake for the inevitable leftovers. Tetrazzini was created by Italian immigrants to the USA adapting family recipes to local conditions and evolving tradition.

Back in September, we moved from NJ to Florida. While we vacationed down here a lot, moving is a whole other kind of beast. Moving aside, we missed a lot of our NY foods, particularly bagels. They just don’t have the same taste or texture here as the ones in NY do. So, we decided […]
