Whole Wheat Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes -- Juggling With Julia

Apparently it’s Pancake Week here. Whole wheat cinnamon swirl pancakes? Nothing wrong with that. Except that I JUST re-posted my new-and improved pumpkin spice pancakes a few days ago.

Spaghetti Squash with Basil and Parmesan -- Juggling With Julia

Today we’re talking spaghetti squash, and we’re dressing it up with basil and parmesan. It’s a bit of a kooky vegetable. If you’ve never had the pleasure, allow me to describe.

Irish Potato and Leek Soup -- Juggling With Julia

Irish Potato and Leek Soup? I don’t often characterize a recipe by its country of origin. It’s hard to peg a dish as being from this country, or that one. Traditional foods we enjoy regularly – think ratatouille, roast chicken, or potato salad - have been influenced and morphed by so many cultures, it’s hard to pin it on just one country. Of […]

Guacamole with Feta -- Juggling With Julia

If you’re a parent, I’ll bet you’d never call your life simple. Spare time – what’s that? It’s an oxymoron, a joke, a farce if you ask me. There is no such thing when you are coordinating the lives and well-being of your offspring. While I would never wish my kids away, I do crave […]
