Eggplant and Barley Salad

Eggplant and Barley Salad

Summer has been very hot in New Jersey this year. I don’t think it’s usually quite this hot, although I don’t know for certain as it’s only our second summer here. When the heat rivals summer in the Midwest, meals for us usually consist of […]

Alton Brown Asian Slaw

Alton Brown Asian Slaw

Can you believe it’s already September? With the continued hot weather, I have trouble believing it’s almost the season to make chili and pick apples and bake. I made quite a few recipes this summer that I haven’t had a chance to tell you about. […]

Salmon with Spinach Salad and Miso Vinaigrette

Salmon with Spinach Salad and Miso Vinaigrette

This weekend marks at least the 3rd or 4th time this year that St. Louis has had record heat. Who wants to cook anything when it’s 90 degrees outside? For all the cooking I do, I haven’t mastered the art of cold meals. I don’t […]

233: Tomato and Cucumber Salad

233: Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I decided to make Tomato and Cucumber Salad to try to take advantage of more of my cucumbers, since I knew I wouldn’t have many more as summer winds down. [I only made the vegetable salad, and didn’t bother with pita bread or the seasoning.] […]

206: Zucchini and Avocado Salsa Salad

206: Zucchini and Avocado Salsa Salad

Having had success making the Cucumber Salsa Salad the week before, I decided to try the similar Zucchini and Avocado Salsa Salad to use up another ubiquitous zucchini. Some might think it’s a bad idea to make two very similar recipes in such close proximity […]

My cucumbers decided to grow like mad, just like my zucchinis did. That, combined with the hot weather, helped me decide it was finally time to make Cucumber Salsa Salad. The directions were easy to follow. While the cucumber rested with salt on it, I […]

196: Zucchini Lemon Salad

196: Zucchini Lemon Salad

For a potluck I decided to make the recipe for Zucchini Salad with Shaved Parmesan. Of course, you know I don’t like cheese, so I’m calling it a more appropriate Zucchini Lemon Salad. I sliced my zucchini as I usually do, rather than lengthwise, and […]

187: Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken

187: Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken

One Friday, I knew there wouldn’t be enough time for me and Alex to go home and eat before we had to be at a game. I decided to make Lemony Orzo-Veggie Salad with Chicken since it seemed like a good, light, take-along meal for […]

85: Strawberry-Citrus Salad

85: Strawberry-Citrus Salad

I came across a recipe for Strawberry-Citrus Salad when I was looking at recipes for Easter dinner. I happened to have fresh mint, and strawberries, and tangerines. It’s also been unseasonably warm here. The summer-like weather, and the heat in my office since the building […]

57: Spinach and Endive Salad with Tangerines and Coriander-Crusted Scallops

57: Spinach and Endive Salad with Tangerines and Coriander-Crusted Scallops

On Tuesday night, I made the Spinach and Frisee Salad with Tangerines & Coriander-Crusted Scallops from Eating Well magazine. It’s an incredibly long name, but a pretty tasty salad. This was my first time cooking scallops. They seem incredibly expensive, so I never buy them. […]
