I have so many culinary favorites, but I must say that my wife Barb’s St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef Cabbage is one of my Top 10 Food Favorites! It’s definitely not the most sophisticated of meals nor the most complicated to prepare, but sometimes simplicity rules the day. That is […]
Want a well-rounded, colorful, healthy meal for two? Well… this is it! And it’s only three simple ingredients: baked sweet potato, a good helping of asparagus, and a 2-inch 8 oz filet mignon. I like my sweet potato extra crispy. So begin by baking two sweet potatoes at 450 degrees […]
In today’s recipe, I am going to make Kielbasa, cabbage and leek soup. I was never a real fan of kielbasa until our friend and neighbor Jane Dancey brought us some Kowalski’s Polish Kielbasa from Michigan. The Kowalski Sausage Company that was established 95 years ago by Polish immigrants. It […]
Even though we live in Florida where it’s seems like the endless Summer, we do have seasons as slight as they are. But now there were in June, I think back to the many fond memories of living in the Hamlet of Pultneyville, New York o the shores of Lake […]
For this dish, I blended fresh sauteed spinach, crumbled blue cheese, chopped onions, minced garlic, and olive oil into a stuffing mixture. Then, I butterflied the flank steak, pounded it relatively thin, spread the stuffing on one side, rolled it up, and securely tied it every two inches or so with butcher’s string. The result is a beautiful cylindrical shaped stuffed flank steak that Rob cooked quickly on the grill.
Different twist to a fresh spring roll. Try this roast beef alternative. Wonderful!
Our home in Upstate NY was located in an historic hamlet on the shore of Lake Ontario called Pultneyville. The hamlet was originally laid out in 1806 and is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. At one time a significant Great Lakes trading port and site of a War of 1812 skirmish, it now is a quiet, Western New York bedroom community. Set between the fruit orchards and a Great Lake on the Seaway Trail, many of Pultneyville’s activities focus on summer sailing and theatre. The hamlet boasts an active marina and is home to the second-oldest little theater in the United States.

As you know, Rob & I live in Southwest Florida year-round. We have lots of friends down here who are seasonal & don’t do much cooking while on their 6 month “vacation. I love to cook, enjoy entertaining friends. Eating dinner out isn’t really my thing especially during season. To crowed, to pricey and reservations only available at 5:00 or 9:00.
