Wild Mushroom and Black Garlic Soup

My husband Jack recently returned from a trip, claiming to have the recipe for THE BEST mushroom soup he’s ever had! Here is Jack in his own words, sharing the story behind today’s fantastic Wild Mushroom and Black Garlic Soup: A few weekends ago, I attended a food video workshop in Madison, Wisconsin with some […]

Turkey and Gravy Savory Herbed Waffles

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been sharing all sorts of recipes that you can make using leftover Thanksgiving turkey. To share a little behind-the-scenes with you – we roasted, cooked with, and ate three (three!) turkeys in the last month so we would have cooked turkey for our recipe creations. And with two separate […]

Small Batch Fig Jam

Figs are one of my all-time favorite fruits! But unfortunately, living in New England where figs are not locally grown, it is often hard to find fresh figs.  And when we do find them, they are either very expensive or – being a highly perishable fruit – not of the greatest quality. So I was […]

Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are on the menu at our house all the time!  Not only is this vegetable very delicious, but it’s also really good for you! In fact, sweet potatoes are sometimes referred to as a ‘superfood’ because they are loaded with vitamins and nutrients that are believed to offer disease-preventing, cancer-fighting and immune-boosting benefits. Sweet […]

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 […]

Rice Pilaf

As bloggers and self-proclaimed foodies, Jack and I love to cook and share recipes for some fairly elaborate dishes.  Sometimes we’re encouraging you – our readers – to try a new, exotic ingredient; other times teaching you a new cooking technique; other times walking you step-by-step through a recipe that results in a wonderfully impressive […]

Country Baked Chicken

Today’s recipe for Country Baked Chicken is pure, old-fashioned comfort food straight from the oven!  I’d gladly eat this terrific baked chicken for dinner every day of the week – it’s so delicious! Our country baked chicken starts with a spice rub blend of thyme, sage, paprika, garlic and a touch of cayenne, then baked […]

Perfect Pork Chops

Before I met my husband, I avoided cooking pork chops – not because I didn’t like the taste of them, but because I could never cook them very well.  Most of the time my pork chops came out dry and tasteless, so rather than disappointing myself or my dinner guests, I steered clear of pork […]

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 […]

Here’s another variation on that classic comfort food: meatloaf.  This time we’re sharing Jack’s Meatloaf with Gravy prepared how he remembers it being served when he was growing up.   Our earlier meatloaf recipe turned out to be very popular among our readers so, not to be outdone, here is my husband’s version.  (As I mentioned here, we sometimes […]
