Sweet & Smoky Chicken Nuggets

The light is changing here in Boston. The days are getting colder and shorter. The leaves are falling from the trees. Winter will soon be here. This chicken dish with smoked Spanish paprika and sweet honey is tasty and easy to prepare. It's warm and welcoming on the coldest of winter evenings. Serve with lots of lemon wedges for a bright and tangy finish.

Restaurant-Style Lentil Curry ~ Coconut Milk, Warm Spices, Fresh Lime

This long Veteran's Day weekend was spent meandering around Boston, visiting gorgeous portraits at the Museum of Fine Arts and cooking this creamy lentil curry.

Baked Fish with Lemon Herb Sauce

This is a great dish for a casual dinner. It's elegant but unfussy. The herb sauce is fresh and lively against the juicy fish. It's quick and easy too. I serve it with my lemony roasted potatoes or baked potatoes. I'm lucky enough to live in New England, where fish and potatoes are always a classic combination.

Thai-Inspired Whipped Sweet Potatoes ~ Coconut Cream, Warm Spices & Chili

Need a feisty and fun sweet potato recipe for your holiday table that won't give you a sugar crash before the pumpkin pie is served? Then this recipe is for you. Don't get me wrong, I won't turn down a serving of marshmallow covered sweet potatoes. But, at holiday time, I tend to keep things simple. This recipe is a nice change of pace from the often cloyingly sweet marshmallow dish.

Thai Meatball Poppers with Creamy Peanut Dipping Sauce

When we first moved to Boston, I visited a wonderful little antique shop just outside the city in Belmont, MA. All That Matters is owned and run by a lovely lady named Ursula. She sells a rotating array of vintage treasures at wonderful prices. Everytime I go there, I'm delighted to find something unique and pretty. Equally enticing are the international grocery stores in my neighborhood, selling everything from Thai basil to fresh dates.
