Turkey Phyllo Pie; Chocolate

Turkey and Spinach Pie

Thanksgiving is coming up for all you people living in the U.S. In case you have leftover turkey, here is an easy recipe that maybe a bit different than what you usually do. When we still lived on that side of the pond and made big turkey dinners we usually ended up eating a lot … Continue reading…

Linguine with Tuna and Capers

Pasta with Tuna & Capers

Basil is the first of the summer herbs to die. Parsley and tarragon dither. They can last until Christmas or go into hibernation in September. Bay, rosemary and sage are useable all winter while mint, lemon balm, and thyme lose their leaves (mostly). Besides, it’s usually dark and cold when I remember I need herbs … Continue reading…

Orange Maple Glazed Grilled Salmon

Salmon

The only reason I mention it … Continue reading…

Thankfully, it has not made it to this side of the pond, or, at least, not to the back of beyond where we live. I actually just Googled Pumpkin … Continue reading…

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Apples & Sausage

Stuffed Acorn Squash

I believe I said that I had 2 very large acorn squash that needed to be stuffed this year. This is the second. I don’t normally mix fruit with meat, other than the occasional lemon / caper sauce. But, there is something about the sweet winter squashes that make me think a tart apple might … Continue reading…

Pasta with Sausage & Tomatoes

Pasta, Sausage & Sage

During most of the year, if I am making a ‘short’ pasta dish, I add vegetables to it, making it a quick, one-dish dinner. I don’t do that when using ‘long’ pasta (spaghetti, tagliatelle, etc.) and I don’t do it in the fall when we are eating the acorn and / or delicata squash at … Continue reading…
