Recipe: Sundried Tomato Quinoa Stuffed Swiss Chard

Every single time I make this recipe, I end up with a big pile of no-so-attractive looking slop, but it is tasty.  In my opinion, this is a perfect recipe for the middle of the winter – at this point, it’s been months since tomatoes have been seasonally available, so I’m craving a rich-tomato-y flavor. […]

Recipe: Homemade Personal Pizzas

When I was a kid, Sunday night was TV and pizza night.  I wasn’t allowed to watch much TV, so it was a treat, as was the ½ pepperoni and mushroom and ½ plain pizza.  Of course, there was also a salad and Yoo-Hoo.  Though it’s been years since I had Yoo-Hoo, I still love […]

Recipe: Savory Stuffed Acorn Squash

I’m just starting to take advantage of all the winter squashes that are in season.  The other night, I needed an easy recipe to use up some of my onions and squash, so this was what I concocted.  I decided to go in a savory direction with the stuffing but you could have easily used […]

Recipe: Baked Eggplant and Spiced Turkey

This ­recipe is a light take on a classic Greek dish.  Traditionally made with fried eggplant, potatoes, and spiced meat in a cream sauce, my version doesn’t sacrifice flavor but has significantly fewer calories.  I created it haphazardly, with the ingredients I happen to have in my kitchen at the time.  Personally, I think it […]

Recipe: Roasted Trout with White Wine and Sage

I was in a very autumn mood last weekend and made several fall dishes from local produce from Glebocki Farms at the Corona, Queens Greenmarket.  Using most of my fall and winter veggies, I made 3 vegetables dishes and this fresh, slightly acidic fish recipe to offset the sweetness of good squash.  I didn’t have […]

Recipe: Crispy Corn Raviolis with Light Basil Pesto

Making ravioli can be a tedious process when you’re making the dough.   I prefer to use wonton wrappers to reduce the time it takes and the number of steps.  Using fresh corn and basil when they’re in season (or right now, when the corn is going out of season) is the best time to make […]

Recipe: Cumin Seared Mahi Mahi with Salsa Verde

Cumin gives smokey flavor to fish and when it’s combined with a little acid, the bold flavors really shine through.  This quick cooking recipe only requires a frying pan and can be done in less than 10 minutes.   If tomatillos aren’t available, you could use regular tomatoes, mangos or peaches for the complimentary salsa.  You […]

Recipe: Spicy Crusted Floudner

Easiest fish recipe ever.  I used flounder because it was available at my market, but this recipe would be great with other fish too, such as catfish.  Catfish is almost always served fried, but this recipe a great alternative with just as much flavor.  Buttermilk is always made with skim milk so it’s always going […]

Recipe: Mom’s Lemon Chicken

Maybe my love for this recipe stems from the nostalgic feeling I get when eating it with couscous.  Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a little indulgent, but not too much.  Or maybe my love for this recipe comes from using it to convert non-lemon chicken lovers into believers.  Whatever the reason, this is a no-fail […]
