Tri-Color Cauliflower Salad

Inspiration for today’s Tri-Color Cauliflower Salad came to me at the supermarket.  I was shopping for a few items, when I spotted a display of different colored cauliflower – and that was enough to inspire this recipe! In addition to the white, orange and green cauliflower we used in this Tri-Color Cauliflower Salad – you […]

White Balsamic Vinaigrette

This White Balsamic Vinaigrette is the wonderful dressing that we used on yesterday’s Mixed Greens with Prosciutto and Cantaloupe salad. This easy vinaigrette is a variation of our Favorite Vinaigrette recipe – but in today’s recipe, we swapped in white balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar, plus we left out the fresh herbs. This […]

Crunchy Sweet and Salty Chicken

In between preparing (and eating!) all of the different dishes we share here on A Family Feast, there are still many days when we simply cook for the sake of eating and not blogging! Our weekdays are like many other families – busy with work, school, homework, housework, after-school activities, errands to run, and appointments […]

Chopped Salad with Pasta

Our Chopped Salad with Pasta is another great option for a light summer menu!  What I particularly like about this recipe is that it’s a complete all-in-one meal – so it’s great packed as a take-along lunch for a picnic or a day at the beach. This chopped salad with pasta is full of delicious, […]

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 […]

Favorite Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette is one of our go-to recipes, and we’re asked for the recipe so often we had to include it here.  Originally named “Our Favorite Vinaigrette” by the authors of the famed The Silver Palate Cookbook, the recipe was included in that cookbook as a vinaigrette for serving over asparagus.  But we love it so […]

Martha’s Meatloaf

Like most couples, my husband and I have different ways of doing things and that extends to how we prepare certain dishes.  Meatloaf is one of those dishes – every family has their own version and there are so many variations – some served with gravy (which is how Jack had it growing up), others […]
