This is an easy side dish for Easter Brunch or Passover Seder. If you are serving a more formal dinner, consider serving ramekins on a larger plate with spring greens or asparagus. If you are entertaining, prepare everything ahead except the egg whites. Twenty five minutes before serving, beat the egg whites and fold...

Stuffed Cabbage

By Jan Buhrman

This is one of Julia Child’s recipes. When I was in graduate school, I lived right across the street from Julia on Irving Street in Cambridge. She invited me a few times to her home and I would see her daily on the street walking with her husband Paul. I used to pore over...

Scallops and Parsnip Puree

By Jan Buhrman

This time of year, the bay scallops are like candy and served with this puree, they are remarkable. I only use a smudge of puree (along with a little drizzle of pumpkin oil, muldon sea salt and cracked pepper) under the scallops so guests can toothpick the scallops and smear the smudge onto the...

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Quinoa and Vegetables

By Jan Buhrman

Squash can be sexy! “Squash is a great member of the curcubitae family and all, especially the seeds, contain high levels of citrulline. This helps our body utilize arginine more effectively for improved blood flow and better circulation. It is often called the poor wo/man’s Viagra. When I recommend it for those I work...

Compromised Spring Dinner

By Jan Buhrman

I just made a compromise with my family. They want pasta (AGAIN!!) and I want greens. I think pasta is my least favorite meal to make, even when I am making the pasta from scratch.  I just don’t embrace the white flour.  My son asks “what’s for dinner?” and I say dandelion greens and...
