This is seriously one of the easiest side dishes I’ve ever made. If you like brussels sprouts then you’ll love the extra flavor that roasting brings out in them. If you don’t like brussels sprouts then maybe it’s time to try them. C’mon, I dare you! These pint-sized cabbages are loaded with Vitamins A and […]

September 18, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on Oven-Roasted Fries | Filed in Appetizer, Kid-friendly, Potatoes, Recipes, Side Dish, Snack, Vegetable, Vegetarian

  These delicious thick-cut fries couldn’t be any easier to make! I served them with a smoky Chipotle Mayo dipping sauce along side grilled burgers…sooo good! Instead of using non-stick spray on the baking sheet, I lined it with parchment paper. In the past, I’ve had potatoes stick to the pan even with the non-stick spray but […]

Grilled Portobella Sandwiches with Tomatoes, Mozzarella & Basil

July 2, 2012 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Grilling/BBQ, Italian, Quick Cooking, Recipes, Sandwich, Vegetable, Vegetarian

I made this Italian-inspired sandwich recently for a friend’s birthday lunch. It’s hearty, delicious and a creative way to enjoy a meat-free meal! Think of a caprese salad (tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar) in the form of a sandwich with the addition of a grilled portobella mushroom…Delish! To prep the portobella mushrooms, cut off […]

Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

November 20, 2011 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Recipes, Side Dish, Thanksgiving, Vegetable

Brussels sprouts…people either love ’em or hate ’em. I happen to love ’em and this recipe elevates the humble, often hated vegetable. I loved the texture of the shredded brussels and the added smokiness and saltiness of the bacon. This is a great side dish for roasted meats, especially turkey and chicken.  We had a […]

Sauteed Kale

I love greens. Kale, collards, beet greens…they all get a thumbs-up in my book. This recipe for Sauteed Kale has a slight tang from the vinegar, a little hit of spice from the red pepper flakes and lots of flavor from the sauteed red onion and garlic. It’s a perfect side dish for Italian food or roasted meats […]

The quesadillas […]

This salsa rocks! If you’ve never made fresh salsa before, I highly encourage you to make a batch of it. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to whip up and how delicious it is! Of course, starting with top quality ingredients (vine-ripened tomatoes) is key to a good salsa, while dry roasting the veggies in a pan […]

Sagaponak Corn Pudding

August 16, 2011 by andrea | 7 Comments | Filed in Baking, Casserole, Christmas, Holidays, Recipes, Side Dish, Thanksgiving, Vegetable, Vegetarian

Give me a spoon and a bucket of this stuff and I’m a happy girl. Okay, maybe that’s a little over doing it. I really do love this recipe, though. Corn pudding (if you’ve never had it before) is a savory baked corn dish that is creamier than cornbread but more dense than a custard. Basically, it’s […]
