t’s back to school and the evidence is in my kitchen cooking with friends! All the rolling, crimping and freezing happens most often during the school year as my friends and I make healthy foods to serve our kids during these busy weeks.

Thu, September 17, 2015

Blog Photo

One friend and one cake Saturday and another friend and another cake on Sunday! If you ask me, that’s a pretty sweet way to spend the weekend. The first one, an orchard-fresh chunky apple cake and the second one, a fruit filled sugary plum cake.

Restaurant Worthy Ravioli

Sat, August 22, 2015

Blog Photo

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.

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.
