Broccoli Feta Fritters

We eat a lot of Broccoli in our house.  Jacob has been complaining about it, so I tried to come up with a new way to feed it to him without him feeling like his mom is making him eat his Broccoli.  Broccoli is such a nutritional superstar that I want to make sure we […]

Tuna Lemon-Aioli Bruschetta

Do you ever look at a dish you order in a restaurant and think that it would be too much trouble to recreate?  I do it.  If it looks like the work won’t be worth the reward I turn a cold shoulder to the dish and move on.  I saw this dish at one of […]

Lemon Green Beans

Green Beans have to be the easiest vegetable to work with.  They make a cooks life easy if she is cooking for a crowd.  I always go for the french green beans because I think they cook up tender and have a softer flavor.  After a quick blanch you can store these beans in the […]
