Turkey Sage Meatballs with Cranberry Glaze

This app is a shout out to the Queen Bird and her favorite Berry.  As AJ and I will be heading down to Connecticut to celebrate with the in-laws this year, we wanted to have a little get-together with some friends up in Boston.  Pavlov got it right…there is something about the flavors of the […]

Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup with Lime Roasted Black Tiger Prawns

Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup with Lime Roasted Black Tiger Prawns

Cool and creamy soup with a snappy bite of citrus-spicy shrimp…sink your teeth into the last week of summer.  This soup is a mood and complexion booster thanks to the cukes and avacodo.  Serve it as a satisfying starter or as an appetite whetting amuse bouche in a shot glass or demitasse…great for passing as […]

Perched right on Silver Lake, the modest […]

Pan Roasted Monkfish with Siena Farms Summer Veggies.  Want Some?

Monkfish, or  “poor man’s lobster”, came in our Cape Ann Fresh Catch CSF this week!  Monkfish are opportunistic feeders and have a sweet tooth for shrimp, shellfish and sand eels.  The flavor  is rich, sweet and succulent reminiscent of lobster, without the hassle of a shell.  The texture of the meat is more firm than […]

Braised Bluefish with Baby Bok Choy in Saffron Jus We received a whole Bluefish last week in our Cape Ann Fresh Catch CSF.  Bluefish is another great example of why buying whole fish really works to your advantage when it comes to quality and flavor.  One of the reasons why this delicious fish has a […]

Guilt Free Fish and Chips with Cape Ann Fresh Catch Pollock

Guilt Free "Fish and Chips"

Fish and Chips are one of my favorite flavors of summer.  I love this recipe because it is a healthy, “bikini approved” alternative to the often deep fried version.  And, the clean up is quick and painless as you do not have a vat of oil to dispose of.  I also love the use of […]
