Our Favorite Milk, Cream, Yogurt and Cheese Recipes

All opinions are 100% mine. #TeamDairyNE #JuneDairyMonth A few weeks ago, I had the huge pleasure of joining my fellow Team Dairy New England […]

Chicken Corn Chowder

We originally shared this Chicken Corn Chowder recipe back in February 2013 – right after winter storm Nemo had hit New England – and we were without heat and electricity for several days.  Four years later, I still remember how cold it was in our house! With a young daughter at home with us, once […]

Crème Brûlée (for Two)

My husband Jack will tell you that anytime we go out to dinner – if there is Crème Brûlée on the menu – I always order it for dessert! Sure, I love chocolate desserts too – but for me, there’s something soul-satisfying about cracking the hardened, sugar-caramel top of a Crème Brûlée with the back […]

Lobster Sambuca Over Fettuccini

With Father’s Day coming up soon, I’ve been planning to treat my husband Jack to a really special meal, and this Lobster Sambuca Over Fettuccini fits the bill! Jack is such a great father and husband. He’s a very hard worker – at his full-time job, around the house, and on this blog – and […]

Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse

This recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse combines two of my all-time favorite ingredients – fresh strawberries and cream cheese – into one yummy dessert! The inspiration for this recipe came about after some indecision on my part – I knew I wanted to make a dessert with some gorgeous strawberries that we had just bought […]

Pasta with Arugula Cream Sauce

My husband Jack and I love arugula.  It has such a unique and peppery taste that’s super delicious when added with other greens to a salad, or made into a pesto.  And we’ve used it in a number of our earlier recipes including our Prosciutto and Fig Pizza, our Wheatberry Salad with Cranberries and Feta […]

Portuguese Rice Pudding

This recipe for Portuguese Rice Pudding is a popular dish that my husband Jack has served many, many times over the years.  It’s a sweet and creamy, vanilla-infused rice pudding and a wonderfully comforting dessert!  There’s a hint of orange in this rice pudding, as well as warm cinnamon sprinkled on top.  It’s so good! […]

Chicken Bellagio

Whenever we eat out at The Cheesecake Factory, more often than not, I order the Chicken Bellagio.  I love pesto (as I confessed yesterday) and the Chicken Bellagio is a delicious pesto pasta dish!  This recipe is Jack’s make-at-home version, and – dare I say – it’s even better than the dish they make at […]

New England Clam Chowder

Living in coastal New England, having a good recipe for New England Clam Chowder as part of your recipe collection is an absolute must.  And – if your recipe is an award-winning recipe like this one – even better! Years ago, my husband Jack was part of a team that took first place at the […]

Linguine with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Brie

This recipe for Linguini with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Brie wasn’t on our original schedule for this week.  A blizzard named “Nemo” hit New England this past weekend, and our area of Southeastern Massachusetts was hit hard with very strong winds that knocked down trees and power lines and doing very widespread damage. We’ve been […]

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 […]
