Garden Vegetable Ragout

Today’s delicious Garden Vegetable Ragout was fully inspired by (as you can guess from the recipe name) a garden full of fresh vegetables! A “ragout” (pronounced ra-gu) is French for a main dish stew and it comes from the word ragoûter, which means “to revive the taste.” Our recipe today is a mix of sweet […]

Vegetable Chili

Today we’re sharing a perfect, delicious recipe to feed a crowd – and another great way to cook with in-season, summer vegetables! I’ve made this fantastic Vegetable Chili so many times over the years that the binder of my well-worn copy of this cookbook is cracked and automatically falls open to the page where the […]

Tuscan-Style Beans

Today’s recipe for Tuscan-Style Beans is a deliciously different alternative to the more traditional (but still very delicious) Boston baked beans that we so often see served at summer barbecues! The original name for these Tuscan-Style Beans is Fagioli All’Uccelletto – which in Italian means “beans in the manner of little birds”. This article attributes […]

Beef and Bean Enchiladas

I’ve mentioned before, that my husband Jack worked many years ago at a cool, funky and very popular Mexican restaurant called The Edgewater Café, located about an hour north of Boston.  The food was fantastic and anytime Jack cooks Mexican for us, he draws inspiration from the dishes he cooked while working there. This recipe […]

White Bean Dip

There’s an old proverb: “Necessity is the mother of invention.” And that saying holds true for this wonderful White Bean Dip! A few weeks ago, we made some Boston Baked Beans and since then, we’ve had a bag of dry navy beans in our kitchen cabinet.  Not wanting to see perfectly good navy beans go […]

Boston Baked Beans

Today we’re sharing our own ‘secret family recipe’ for Boston Baked Beans!  This is a recipe that Jack has perfected over the years and it’s so much better than any canned baked beans you can buy. Boston baked beans are another one of those dishes that I never really liked – until I ate Jack’s […]

Refried Beans

I have to admit, I was never much of a fan of Refried Beans…until I tried this recipe! This recipe for refried beans, developed by my husband Jack, is so flavorful thanks to a little bit of pancetta (I know – not a traditional Mexican ingredient – but it adds fantastic flavor!) that is sautéed […]
