Clam Chowder

This clam chowder was probably the best I’ve ever made. It was creamy, spicy and savory with a combination of minced canned clams and fresh whole clams. This recipe makes two large bowls or three smaller bowls of comforting clam chowder. I served crusty, oven warmed, bread lathered in butter along with the chowder. Chowder […]

Omelette Souffle

For a special treat, my grandmother made the most amazing omelette souffles. I decided to reconstruct her recipe and I think it turned out splendidly. This is cheese only, enveloped in fluffy egg creaminess. The size of the omelette pan matters. If you are making a two egg omelette then use an 8 inch skillet. […]

Mussels with Wine and Herbs

We are so lucky to have a local market that provides fresh mussels from the cold waters of New England. Yesterday, my husband was lamenting that he hasn’t had mussels in a while. He spent summers on PEI in Canada and was super spoiled by the abundance of fresh seafood available there. A pound of […]

I cleaned and chopped the vegetables, added some garlic, spices, vegetable broth, cooked for an hour and […]

My second cookbook was The New York Times 60-Minute Gourmet. The New York Times never disappoints in terms of innovative, creative and delicious recipes. My version of […]

I like […]

Quick Guacamole

Most guacamole recipes start with chopping tomatoes, onion, jalapenos and garlic. Yesterday, I was craving a chip and guac snack. As I surveyed the contents of my pantry and refrigerator, I realized I had nice, ripe avocados but no tomatoes or jalapenos but I did have a container of my favorite fresh salsa from the […]

Roasted Salmon last night turned into Salmon with steamed bok choy and snow peas today. The combination is healthy and tastes magical. This was quick and easy to prepare. I had just enough bok choy and snow peas left over from my Chicken Pho. Bok Choy is also known as chinese cabbage. It has a […]

Turkey Meatballs with Sweet Red Sauce

You will notice I didn’t tag this recipe as one of the healthy ones. The turkey meatballs certainly are healthy, but once I smothered the meatballs in the Sweet Red Sauce, they were goners. Sugar isn’t typically at the top of my ingredient list for the recipes I make and design, but it is an […]
