Sauteed Cider Apples

In an ode to September and fall colors, I’ve made some of Bobby Flay’s sautéed cider apples from his cookbook “Brunch at Bobby’s.” Tart Granny Smith apples, simmered in apple cider spiced with cinnamon sticks, until they are tender and glazed in a syrupy, buttery sauce.

Turkey Bacon Bagel Melts

As we came to the end of summer, I was running out of creative ideas for what to feed the kids for lunch every day. We are all growing tired of the standard kid fare, which often includes yogurt, a side of fruit, or a cheese stick alongside some chicken nuggets,...

Raspberry Mint Limeade

Whenever I offer to make cookies for the family, my middle son requests molasses cookies without fail.

Once the pan of shrimp was cooked and photographed, I called for my oldest son – the teenaged shrimp-lover of the household – and told him there may be something he might be interested in on the dining room table. He came downstairs, took one look, and perched himself beside the hot skillet, devouring every single last piece of plump, glistening shrimp.

Ginger Iced Tea with Citrus & Thyme

Iced tea represents golden summers, lingering long over conversations on the porch in the shade, barbecues and cook-outs and running through the sprinklers. As the temperature warms up, the condensation forms on the outside of the cold iced tea glass and begins to drip, sliding down, and pooling around, tempting you to bring it to your brow in an effort to cool off.
