A Little of This . . .

Hungry? Come on in! Kitchen Excursions' delectable dishes will take you all over the world. Here we will share cooking tips, ideas, and, of course, great recipes.

Sandy, my beautiful Syrian mother-in-law, had a wonderfully contagious enthusiasm about cooking. She taught me, a nice Irish girl who once had no idea you were supposed to peel garlic, how to get into the kitchen. I haven't stopped exploring different cuisines since.

Over the summer, my Monday night writers' group enjoyed the antipasto pictured above: marinated mushrooms and chickpeas, red quinoa, cannellini bean and tuna salad, baby carrots, hard-boiled eggs, tomatoes, crisp asparagus and sugar snap peas, purple potatoes, goat cheese, and toasted pignolia nuts. Needless to say, we wiped it out.

The week has plenty of other nights. Stay tuned for more wonderful recipes.

Bon Appetit!

  3. Miriam, I cook vegetarian/almost-vegan on Monday nights to accommodate a good writer friend, and no one minds. We've learned that vegetarian doesn't mean boring. We are healthy writers for sure, at least on Monday nights! Thanks for visiting my new baby.

  7. Lisa, if you're ever in the ME/NH area on a Monday night, you're welcome to SIP with us! A glass of wine makes revisions fine. Or something like that. I plan to add tonight's recipe by tomorrow. Thanks for dropping by!
