Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado) enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on.

For anyone who likes good food, hates waste and has little time to cook, something similar to this dish is more than likely in your repertoire. It basically doesn’t require a recipe; boil pasta in a pot, cook leftover proteins and vegetables in a skillet, toss together and serve. The recipe below was pretty darn … Full recipe post
Today I’m riffling for recipes as far away from Thanksgiving as I can get. “Just say no” to poultry; “Just say no” to root vegetables or anything seasoning with sage. I want to be craving these flavors come Turkey Day, not bored with them. I’m also looking for low caloric recipes, so I can “bank” my calories … Full recipe post
Looking for ideas for the upcoming holidays? Consider clicking the holiday cookbook : “Thankful for Food” Holiday Collection 50+ Festive dinnerFeed Recipe Suggestions The kale is the my last survivor in November’s garden. Even after several nights of frost, it stands proud, stoic, ready to provide us one final meal. This is a delicious brothy, peasant-styled soup; … Full recipe post
Yes, the tomato sauce is not red and thick. But the flavor is so much better, at least for me, than sweet, ketchupy tomato sauces. The salty, rich flavor of the sea is captured as the shellfish steams in the sauce, releasing its juices. I began by sautéing local fresh plum tomatoes in garlic – … Full recipe post
While shopping at Hiller’s last week, I saw a chickpea (garbanzo bean) salad on their salad bar that looked delicious – one of those salads that made me feel healthier just by looking at it. I didn’t purchase any as I had most of the ingredients to make something similar at home. Here is my … Full recipe post
Low-fat, easily thrown together soups can easily be created with ingredients picked up at roadside stands. I didn’t add cream or add flour-butter roux to thicken this batch; the fresh flavor of September corn and thickening power of lightly smashed potatoes was plenty satisfying. As well, these freshly dug, thin-skinned white potatoes did not need … Full recipe post
Scooped again from the pages of Runner’s World magazine, my ongoing monthly copycat recipe is a winner. (To see other Runner’s World, healthy recipes, go to dinnerFeed.comand type ‘Runner’s World’ into the search box.) Tonight’s dinnerFeed features Pam Anderson’s recipe from the September issue of Runner’s World. I was delighted to see this recipe, named … Full recipe post
The crocus and hyacinth are making a splashy showing in the yard with tulips and daffodils nudging themselves through the soil. The forecast is promising temperatures hovering in the seventies – if I could turn a cartwheel without breaking my neck I would. I’m even encouraged (with my husband, Richard’s, pleas) to dust off my running … Full recipe post
Some folks think the best cure for a hangover is to have another drink – this further indulgence is sometimes referred to as “the hair of the dog that bit you.” Richard, my uber-health-conscious husband, is quite concerned by that rational – indeed, concerned by behavior that would give one a bad hangover in the … Full recipe post
Deliciously decadent! And I don’t need to be reminded I ate another deliciously decadent Amalfi coast spaghetti recipe, buttery Spaghetti with Fried Calamari, last week. But never mind; I crave classic Italian comfort foods when the weather is cruddy. Guiliano Bugialli, cookbook author and veritable master of Italian cuisine, specifically instructs not to use bacon when … Full recipe post
Tonight Richard and I are planning to watch a favorite movie classic, “Dr. Zhivago”, and I wanted some treats to complement the movie. We’re looking for comfort to get us through another wintry March evening and a bottle of Stolichnaya Pepper Vodka is tempting. Yet thrashing back shots of vodka doesn’t seem a wise idea, … Full recipe post
My niece, a grad student at Tulane, loves living in New Orleans. Family trips to this fabled American city have always been more fun because of her “insider” knowledge. Except for the time she took us to Mid-City Lanes Rock ‘n’ Bowl, a live music and dance venue set in the middle of a bowling … Full recipe post

I’ve got a knock-your-socks-off recipe for chili, inspired by an Eden recipe, that will not only nourish your body, but it will funnel money back into our state’s economy. The catch is … Full recipe post
Detox Resolution Recipe Series: Using whole grains, vegetables, lean meats and healthier fats in recipes you may find taste really good! Chicken and rice. I know. It sounds like a fifties comfort food recipe: Combine 1 can of creamed soup with chicken, add instant rice and bake until done. Although the following (absurdly delicious) recipe is a … Full recipe post
Why do I prefer boneless, skinless chicken thighs to breasts? Let me count the ways: 1. Thighs are less expensive than chicken breasts. 2. Thighs (to my palate) are more flavorful than chicken breasts. 3. Thighs are more difficult to overcook than chicken breasts. I know most folks disagree with my assessment and they do … Full recipe post
