Baked Italian Stuffed Artichokes

June 7, 2021

I am very fond of artichokes and this stuffed artichoke dish makes for an impressive vegetarian first course, main course or a party appetizer.

Vegetable Samosas

May 21, 2021

Delicious with fresh spring peas, these crisp Indian style turnovers can be made with your choice of vegetables in other seasons.

Sautéed Peas With Garlic

May 18, 2021

Fresh from the garden peas layered with silky sesame oil provides an earthiness while the garlic contributes a pungent counterpoint. Simple, yet complex, this pea recipe is a delicious side dish that goes with almost any main dish.

Asparagus With Brown Butter, Capers & Toasted Almonds

April 20, 2021

I like making this spring vegetable side dish because it coaxes loads of flavor from just a handful of ingredients – salty capers, nutty brown butter, thyme, and toasted almonds.

Marinated Baby Artichokes

April 14, 2021

There is a big difference in flavor and texture between homemade marinated baby artichokes and jarred marinated artichokes from the store. There is a bit amount of work involved, but well worth it.

Fennel With Olive Oil, Garlic & Parmesan

April 7, 2021

Fennel is related to a group of herbs that includes anis, cumin, dill, coriander, and caraway. In the vegetable world, however, fennel is recognized as having a taste all its own, one often compared to licorice.

Pan Roasted Radishes

February 2, 2021

One of the things that I like about cooking radishes in this way that it tames spicy radishes and brings out a pleasantly mild turnip-like flavor.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

November 17, 2020

This is such an easy flavorful and crispy side dish to make for every day or holiday meals. I grew up eating those overcooked sprouts that my mother used to make although, truth be told, I loved them anyway. Crispy Brussels sprouts sautéed in butter with bacon…Yum!

Fried Green Beans With Garlic

September 14, 2020

This dish uses the technique of frying in hot oil until they the beans become crunchy and flavorful. You could add pork or crumbled feta cheese if you want to. I have been known to eat the cold from the fridge the next day.

Roasted Cauliflower

April 22, 2020

No need to parboil the cauliflower. Just throw them on the baking pan and place in the oven to roast.
