Jamaican Veggie Fritters

Wed, April 15, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Thu, April 09, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Mon, March 30, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Tue, March 17, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Fri, February 20, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Thu, February 12, 2015

Blog Photo

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

Thu, January 08, 2015

Blog Photo

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.
