This quick and tasty recipe will bring the season to your plate.
A club sandwich is one of my favorite things to eat. This version, with the smooth avocado, salty bacon and briny crab has a different twist. It’s very yummy and quick and easy to make.
What says summer in New England more than Corn and Clam Chowder? You can almost see the ocean when you take a whiff of a fresh batch of chowder. I love the smokiness that the bacon adds. With so many stick to your ribs ingredients like potatoes, cream, corn and bacon, this is the kind of soup that is a meal in itself.
If I could eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Crispy bacon, sweet tomatoes and crunchy lettuce make a BLT ideal for any meal, but I’ve adapted it for those who don’t gravitate towards sandwiches for breakfast.
A BLT folds nicely into this version of Eggs Benedict, with lentils subbing in for lettuce to avoid sogginess. Since tomatoes aren’t quite in season, I cut them into thick slices and roasted them to enhance their sweetness. The earthy lentils nicely complement the salty bacon, and buttery, lemony Hollandaise sauce drizzled over the whole thing makes for a filling and decadent brunch. Read More
Few things make me feel as instantly healthy as kale. The curly green is high in calcium and vitamins, and is a great metabolism booster. As a base for a salad, kale maintains its structure and almost never gets soggy, even when left in dressing overnight. Its unique texture and flavor lends itself perfectly a simple salad topped with creamy vinaigrette, Parmesan and a healthful poached egg.
Poaching an egg requires attention and patience, but is relatively simple. The most important steps are keeping the yolk intact, and making sure that the white completely wraps around the yolk before it sets. Pouring a dash of vinegar into the water and using the freshest eggs you can find will help the eggs keep their round shape as they boil. The salty bacon, zesty lemon and spicy shallots combine to make an easy refreshing salad that keeps well overnight for a leftover lunch. Read More
I have been tucked away in my favorite mountain town Telluride, Colorado. After a day of hiking and taking photos of the beautiful fall foliage it is wonderful to come home this glorious curry. It is warming, soothing, and well seasoned to suit the season. You can interchangeably use pumpkin or sweet potato puree in this recipe. Which ever you prefer or have on hand would work great! As with most sauce, curry and chili recipes this tastes even better the day after cooking. When the flavors have a chance to marry a bit of magic happens. Read More
As summer winds down and we gear up for the last long weekend of the summer we need some quick, simple and delicious party food. Stuffed mushrooms are always a fun appetizer.

Berries and a cold drink on a porch is my idea of an ideal summer snack. This cocktail blends two of these into one icy glass…plus bacon for an extra treat. How to dispose of the rendered fat from bacon is the bacon-lover’s continual problem. I say, why get rid of it? Using the rendered fat ensures that no bacon deliciousness goes to waste. It can be used in cooking, baking, and even drinking. Read More
