Apple Cranberry Coffee Cake

  Upon moving to New York 22 years ago a friend shared her special cranberry coffee cake with my family, a delicious and welcoming gesture. She was kind enough to share her recipe and over the years a few modifications were made to suit my family. Nothing beats New York apples in the Fall, so naturally we added chopped apples to the cranberries with a bit of cinnamon.  This coffee cake is extremely moist and fragrant, filling the kitchen with amazing scents. To cool the coffee cake I placed it outside on the patio table as the temperature had dropped, but …

Korean Style Short Ribs

You can find these beef short ribs at your local grocery store for around $3 per lb. They’re cut about 1/4” thick from the chuck flanken area of the beef rib which makes them perfect for quick grilling.  You’ll want to give the short ribs a good rinse under cool water when you take them out of the package.  I found that there are tiny bits of bone shard left on the meat from the butcher process.  Rinse this away and you won’t have to worry about biting down on any hard bits of bone after it’s cooked.  Be sure …

Kickin’ Cajun Deviled Eggs

The Annual Crawfish Boil was this weekend and the weather was outstanding. Who thinks of a crawfish boil in New York but our friends have them flown in and it feels like Cajun country even if the zip code reads New York! Nothing makes a crawfish boil or cookout more fun than deviled eggs. Wonderful finger food or use a fork, the choice is yours. For every deviled egg there is a “special” recipe but these are easy, “kickin” and a bit different than your Grandmothers stuffed eggs. Yes, I guess I have a bit of “the devil” in me, …

Irish Soda Bread

March 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day. While Saint Patrick is the patron saint and national apostle of Ireland, he is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated with gusto in the United States, especially New York. I am not Irish but I appreciate so many gifts from Ireland. Who doesn’t enjoy the Irish traditions and music, Riverdance, Waterford, linens, Beleek, woolens, foods and beverages? I have learned everyone has his or her “special” Irish Soda Bread recipe and I haven’t eaten one that wasn’t wonderful! My recipe is a combination of several recipes with a small …

This Smoked Oyster Dip recipe, is wonderful for any occasion and can …

If you have no idea what I am talking about then you are missing out on something yummy. Now, these are not quite the same but very close and very easy. I …

Sausage Blossoms

Bronco’s  vs Seahawks a SUPER showdown in New Jersey. The Meadowlands will host the Super Bowl this year and it will be full of surprises, not just football but weather. My favorite memory of The Meadowlands is watching my son as the starting guard in High School football at Giants Stadium. Great memory, but the weather in December was blowing, swirling snow and very cold, the only warm feeling was winning the State Championship. Trust me amazing stadium, but ask any fan it can be brutally cold. Football is fun to watch no matter if you are attending the game …

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

New Year, new classic recipe to start off this year. Nothing beats a REAL pound cake, complete with butter, sugar, eggs, flour and vanilla extract. I made this classic cream cheese pound cake for dessert tonight and the question asked was “Why is it called pound cake?” Well, I thought it might be because it weighs a good pound or two when it is baked or could it be I weigh a good pound more after eating it! However, history states the name originated in Europe because you used one pound each of butter, sugar, flour and eggs. Now that would …

Honey Smoked Ham

The ham I use for this recipe is a Spiral Sliced Smoked Ham.  You can find these everywhere during the Holidays, and they cost around $1.99 per lb.  I buy the shank portion because the bone is great for making a big pot of beans after the holidays; but the butt portion is just as good for serving. These hams are precooked; if you notice the directions it simply says to reheat the ham in an oven for several hours until it reaches an internal temp of 140 degrees.  It is perfectly fine to reheat it this way, but if …

Orzo Salad

It’s all Greek to me at least walking past houses with Greek letters on college campuses during football weekends. So many folks are tailgating and it seems everyone is welcome to making news friends, as long as you support their team. The Service Academies, Army, Navy and Air Force may not have “Greeks” but tailgates are as much a part of the game day as any other campus in America. Living near West Point we enjoy the Army football games, from the cadets parachuting into the stadium with the game ball, to the pre and post game festivities. Did I …
