On My Plate

The featured dish on my plate is a flavorful Hot Italian Sausage and Cherry Pepper Pizza. It’s New Haven-style, and it was the first official meal of our new kitchen!

And here’s what else I’ve been cooking…


Creamy, Crunchy Dijon Cole Slaw

If you’ve never had cole slaw that didn’t water down your entire plate, then this recipe is for you! The easy step of “purging” the moisture from the shredded cabbage is changing the game on this favorite summer salad.

Almond Joy Brownie Bites

Couldn’t I have chopped up some Almond Joy candy bars and added them to my brownies? Sure, but this was a lot more fun!

Blender Buttermilk-Feta Dressing

This easy salad dressing is quite tangy—and no wonder, with buttermilk, feta and lemon all front and center—but you could add any variety of fresh garden herbs to match whatever salad is on your table this Spring.

Vegan Black Bean Burger

I’m always on the search for the perfect texture in a plant-based burger at home. With the discovery of one easy, new-to-me ingredient, I’m getting closer!

Kentucky Hot Brown Swirls

Who wants to sit down in the middle of a Kentucky Derby party with a messy open-faced Hot Brown sandwich? Yeah, these are much easier!

Pollo Chipotle

At our house, we never say no to Mexican food! I’m sharing my easy adaptation of a classic restaurant dish, just in time for Cinco de Mayo.

Sunset Margarita

This is a fun and flavorful twist on a classic tequila cocktail, plus a super-simple technique for making a “sinker” in the bottom of your glass.

Matzo Brei Florentine

I’m on the hunt for interesting ways to use up the matzo that has taken up residence in our home for Passover. This spinach-enhanced twist on a classic dish made a delicious (and easy) weekend breakfast!
