Tuna salad: 1 bowl, 1 meal
You either love tuna or you can't stand it. I love it. My husband? Not so much. Consequently, you'll seldom see a tuna salad served as a meal at my house. Well, up until now. All-In-One Tuna Salad came about when a conversation with a friend on a sunshiny day led to a strong desire...

Planting some herbs of my own
As soon as the greenhouses started advertising their opening for the season, I made a decision. I will not spend another summer borrowing fresh herbs from other people's gardens. No. I'm done with that. I sat down and made a list of all the herbs I want to enjoy fresh-picked this...

We're rollin' now: Spring Vegetable Lasagna Roll-Ups
Oh, it seems I've been waiting so long. Finally, the sun is brighter, the sky is bluer and tiny patches of green grass are peeking out from the lawn. As spring treats us to its fresh fragrance and colors, my appetite starts winding down from its winter of warm comfort foods and begins...

My wild Irish rolls
Not one drop of Irish blood runs through my body, but every year on St. Patrick's Day, I am Irish. My desire to be Irish began during my grade school days in a St. Paul suburb where the teachers advised their students that only those who were Irish could wear green. The others must...

A super bowl of chili
It all started with a conversation I had with friends. I was telling them I wanted to develop a recipe that could be served at a Super Bowl party. You know, something with great flavor that doesn't take a lot of last-minute fussing. Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen while everyone...

Grandma would be so proud
When I was growing up, my grandma's once-a-year visits to our home were special times. The car ride from Chicago to the Twin Cities was a long one for her. Sometimes we'd go fetch her. Other times one of my uncles would deliver her to us. Because the trip was such a long one, she'd...

A world of flavor
As the new year dawns, trend experts look into their crystal balls and give us their predictions. After reading some forecasts on what to expect with food during 2008, I'm feeling quite trendy. It is predicted that during the next 12 months, American consumers will express a growing...

A healthful start to the New Year
I look in the mirror and my cheeks appear a little chubbier. My clothes are fitting just a little snug around my waist. I think a scale would tell me exactly what I don't want to know -- that I've joined the ranks of average American, adding at least a few pounds to my frame since...

Tarts for the holidays
At this time of year, we're all looking for shortcuts in the kitchen. I appreciate time-saving steps in food preparation as long as I don't have to sacrifice eye-appeal and great flavor in the process. Several years ago I discovered that having some cream cheese pastry dough in the...

A stress-free way to feed a crowd
I can feel the warm winter sun shining through beveled leaded glass windows and see the resulting rainbows of color scattered over the table. I can picture 12 family members and a dear friend seated around my table that is pulled out as far as it can go in the huge dining room in...
