Egg salad is one of those dishes I often forget about. Both Jeff and I have memories of eating it in our sandwiches as kids, neither of us loving it. But once in a while, I have a bunch of hard boiled eggs on my hands, and I remember. It turns out that I kind […]

“Spring to Life” Grilled Chicken

While we were in Tenerife, one of our greatest pleasures was cooking and eating fresh food that we bought locally, at the cottage on the hill we were able to rent.  I especially loved all of the citrus and fresh herbs that were available, along with summer crops like red peppers and eggplant!  Here is […]

Chelo Kebabs and Cucumber Yogurt Salad

So, how are we all doing with winter?  Hanging in there?  Our winter has been pretty mild, but I am still getting that ache for brighter, longer days.  I self-medicate with flavors that come from sunny climes, making foods I associate with summertime.  Lately, it’s Chelo Kebab.  These are super-quick to make, freeze easily, are […]
