Ginger Molasses Cookies with Cherry Cream Filling

Today’s recipe – these Ginger Molasses Cookies with Cherry Cream Filling – […]

Peanut Ginger Chicken

I first made this fantastic Peanut Ginger Chicken recipe years ago – long before we started blogging and long before everyone could easily find recipes online! Back then, I was just starting to develop a passion for cooking, and I used to clip and save recipes from magazines and newspapers that caught my eye.  I […]

Lemon Almond Tea Cookies

As much as I love gooey chocolate desserts – more often than not, I tend to gravitate more towards lighter, sweet treats such as these Lemon Almond Tea Cookies. This easy recipe was another discovery we found in my mother’s old recipe box. On the recipe card, my mother wrote “1897” next to the Lemon […]

Chai Spice Mix

Yesterday, we shared a fantastic Chai Tea Smoothie recipe – made with this delicious, easy chai spice mix. Sure – you could easily buy a chai spice mix at most supermarkets these days. But chances are, you have most (if not all) of these spices already in your cabinet at home! A spice blend like […]

Cranberry Ginger Upside Down Cake with Rum Whipped Cream

We made this Cranberry Ginger Upside Down Cake with Rum Whipped Cream as part of a sponsored post for The Chew and She Knows Media.

Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Meatballs

Earlier this summer, we shared a delicious coconut shrimp recipe that was served with a fantastic sweet chili dipping sauce!

Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce

This Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce is the perfect accompaniment to yesterday’s Coconut Shrimp recipe! If you read yesterday post – today’s recipe was inspired by that same family dinner that we enjoyed last month after our daughter’s dance recital. My father-in-law’s coconut shrimp was served with a spicy chili sauce – but his complaint was […]

Saigon Cinnamon Ginger Cookies

It’s not often that my husband Jack sets out to bake some cookies!  I’m usually the one that makes the desserts and other baked goods (except for breads – that is one of Jack’s specialties!).  So I was pleasantly surprised when Jack told me that he wanted to bake these Saigon Cinnamon Ginger Cookies! These […]

Carrot and Ginger Soup

A number of years ago, I worked near a fantastic restaurant called The New England Soup Factory.  As you can probably guess by the name, this place was known for its delicious, award-winning soups – and their sandwiches and salads were pretty terrific too!  At any given lunch-hour, the lines were out the door with […]

Basil Chicken in Coconut-Curry Sauce

Back when my husband Jack and I first started dating – and we discovered our shared love of food and cooking – we used to take turns making dinner.  It was a fun way to impress each other – especially since we knew that the other person really appreciated a delicious, home-cooked meal! I still […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

My husband is a very adventurous eater.  Jack loves many kinds of foods – from typical American fare, to sushi, to the spicier-the-better Korean and Mexican foods.  He’s even been known to try foods that not very many people would try (namely, sea urchin – but that’s a story for another day…).  But there are […]

Lemon-Ginger Broccoli

After the last few months of holiday indulging, we’re definitely ready for some healthier food options and this recipe for Lemon-Ginger Broccoli is both healthy and delicious. Steamed broccoli is tossed with a light Asian-inspired sauce made by combining soy sauce, lemon juice, lemon zest, freshly grated ginger and sesame oil.  Some hot sesame oil […]
