Instant Pot Butter Chicken

  Last fall I purchased the Instant Pot after hearing about it from a friend. Apparently, it is all the rage with Indian professional women who want to prepare Indian food for their families after a full day of work (who knew?).  My mom made Indian meals almost nightly after a full work day when [...]

Provencal Beef Stew

I first saw this recipe on a blog I follow but it is adapted from Cooking Light Magazine.  I really loved that it was served over egg noodles (I love egg noodles!) and it sounded so homey and comforting during the long winter months.  I tried this recipe out on my kids (my usual unsuspecting [...]

Skillet-Roasted Lemon Chicken

So I got myself this cookbook for my birthday recently and thought I’d cook through it over Christmas break.  It ended up being a busy time so I didn’t get too far into it but I did have a chance to try this recipe.  We eat a lot of whole chickens in our home.  It tends [...]

Filet of Beef

Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef

I needed a cut of meat with tremendous wow factor for my hubby’s 40th (!!) birthday back in October.  (How we are close to our fourth decade still astounds me but that is another story)  I decided to try Ina’s slow-roasted filet of beef since it fed a crowd (we had 16 people attend the [...]

Roast Chicken

My New Favorite Roast Chicken

I make roast chicken.  A lot.  It’s a weekly menu fare around our house, usually on Friday nights.  Some think it’s daunting to put a whole bird into the oven but I love that after it’s prepped, you can stick it in the oven and walk away.  I’ve made Ina’s roast chicken and Lucinda’s roast [...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

I realize it’s been eons since I’ve last posted a recipe.  Truth is life with three kids has turned my world topsy turvy.  Between chauffeuring kids to and from places, an almost 6 month old that requires her mother around the clock, buckets of laundry, keeping house, etc, blogging has taken a backseat.  But that doesn’t [...]

Summer Garden Pasta

Summer is quickly coming to an end around our house.  The weather is slightly cooler, the anticipation of school is in the air and oh yeah, I’m having a baby this week.  Nothing like adding another little one to your brood to make you realize those long leisurely summer days are over!:)  It’s a bittersweet [...]

Sagaponack Corn Pudding

Summer is my favorite season to entertain.  The kids are usually healthy (usually), the weather is warm and you can grill your main entree leaving the hostess to just have to prepare a few sides.  We had some friends over last weekend and I needed a gluten-free menu.  I wanted a side dish that was [...]

Pesto Chicken Burgers

I found this recipe in my latest edition of Everyday Food. It looked easy enough and I had a few of the ingredients already on hand…love when that happens!  I was able to use fresh basil from my garden (love summertime!), the fresh mozzarella was on sale at Whole Foods and I swapped the focaccia [...]
