I love combining ingredients that many people don’t think as going together. I really enjoy sweet with salty or spicy. Since tomatoes still seem to be in full supply, I thought that I’d pass on this simple recipe that does just that.

While the calendar says it’s September, it’s still summer for a while. And even though the days of fresh watermelon are numbered, they aren’t over yet. So why not try a different way to serve watermelon?

As I’ve said in other posts, I love combining ingredients and flavors that, on […]

Whether you go to farmers’ markets or belong to a CSA, Swiss chard is available all season long—from spring through fall. So that leaves (pun intended) us with the question of what to do with all those greens. My old standby is simply to sauté them […]

Boy, I love asparagus, especially this time of year when you can find fresh, local spears that taste so good.  Asparagus is such a versatile ingredient — you can sauté it, steam it, boil it, broil it, grill it. And from each different preparation, you get different tastes and textures.

Oh hey, June is here. It seems like yesterday that we were talking about wanting the weather to warm up, and it seems we have gotten our wish.

I’m all about trying to “eat clean” or at least, attempt to add fresh ingredients daily to my lunches and dinners. That’s why I love going to farmers […]

Spring has finally arrived!  Yes, the temperatures are warming up, the sun is shining and flowers are blooming. But it’s the appearance of ramps at local farmers markets that truly marks the season for culinary enthusiasts.

Easter is time for traditions and family. One of my favorite family traditions is to make kolache.

The funny thing about growing up Czech is that foods seemed to be spelled differently every time you turn around. For example, kolache is also spelled kolachi, kolach, kolace, […]

March is National Noodle Month and today, March 11, is Eat Your Noodles Day!
