Restaurant Worthy Ravioli

2015-08-22
When you’ve got a pro at the helm, cooking with friends shines in all its glory. And when it’s Lou Palma at the helm, the sunshine can be blinding it’s so glorious. Now, Debbie and I are no amateurs when it comes to making ravioli. We’re got it down pretty darn good when it’s just the two of us in a kitchen, cranking dough and filling those babies. But add Lou to the mix and it’s a whole new level of professionalism and good times.

Savor Summer in a Two-Bite Morsel

2015-08-07
I’ve waited ten months to sink my teeth into a just-picked piece of sweet Jersey corn. And I have to say it’s been worth the wait. There’s few culinary pleasures (at least for me) which match the delightful pleasure which comes with that sugary and explosive squirt which comes as I bite into a sweet and salted buttery cob of corn.

Jamaican Veggie Fritters

2015-04-15
Some leftover veggies from an Asian class I taught Monday night in Westfield, coupled with the incentive to get creative for my vegetarian daughter, were the motivation for my latest veggie based creation. I’m a meatball and patty crazed cook, so whenever I see chopped anything, I start by tossing everything into a big bowl and just started mixing and adding various flavors.

Eggplant Tendonitis

2015-04-09
Eggplant tendonitis . . . yum . . . Sounds like some kind of phenomenal new dish, doesn’t it? Well, maybe not. But yesterday as I was cooking with friends, my physical therapist friend Suzy diagnosed me with tendonitis on my right wrist and since we were making baked eggplant I thought it a fitting name for today’s blog. 

Meatless Monday

2015-03-30
Oh lovely eggplant sliced thickly, marinated in olive oil and garlic, breaded in an herbed panko and baked to crispy perfection, let me top you with some shaved parmesan at just the last moment! Come hither my dear brussel sprouts, allow me to slice you in half and toss you in a touch of lemon scented olive oil and roast until crispy. Beloved baby bok choy, let my wok cradle you in a delicate saute of fresh ginger.

Not even a little bit Irish but I love St. Patrick’s Day

2015-03-17
I’m a holiday kind of girl, especially when it comes to food and any chance I can get to make something new or different I’ll take it! Of course I’ll have a corned beef simmering all day in my slow cooker, some buttered cabbage and Irish soda bread muffins (maybe made with mini chocolate chips instead of currants!) and there will also be green bagels! What is life if you can’t celebrate the fun!

The Go-To-House

2015-02-20
I seem to be the go-to house on Fridays which thrills me since I love the hustle and bustle of kids, the shrill of teenage girls and the buzzing of video games from the boys an ideal backdrop to a week’s finale. Nothing makes me happier to hear that my daughter’s friends tweet that “Sofia’s mom makes the best food” or when I overhear that my house is the place everyone wants to hang out after school.

Homemade Valentine’s Day Treats

2015-02-12
Maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day is my birthday,  but I take the holiday quite seriously when it comes to expressing love through something sweet. And though I could certainly go to a confectioners shop and get my kids their treats, nothing is more appreciated than something homemade from mom.

Have a “Souper” Start to 2015

2015-01-08
It’s only the first week of the New Year and I’m already feeling frenzied as I try to fit everything in. There’s no need to define “everything” since you have your own “everything” going on. I’m just jam packed this week, overwhelmed and spinning in circles.

Holiday Cookies Galore

2014-12-09
I’m not sure how time has flown quite the way it has, but it’s already holiday cookie time and another year will soon come to a sweet end. An end-of-year tradition continued for me, as my friends and I gathered this past Sunday at my house to ice and decorate cut out sugar cookies.
