Zucchini Fritters

© 2012 REMCooks.com

I realize that for purposes of aesthetics you should stack items like cookies and fritters. The problem is this is a food blog. I just happen to like my camera and playing with it. Food, on the other hand, I take seriously. No one serves zucchini fritters in a stack and you surely don’t eat them that way. Continue reading Zucchini Fritters

Mushroom Burger with Italian Red Sauce, Pesto, Carmelized Onions, Provolone and Parmesan Cheeses on a Kaiser Roll

8 or 9 years ago on business I was traveling in St. Louis. It was late. The restaurant I wanted to go for dinner was closed that evening and I had an early day the next morning. So, I went to a local grill on a flyer. I don’t even remember the name and never went back. Nothing on the menu appeared appetizing so I settled on the portobello burger. It was the best part of the trip! Continue reading Mushroom Burger with Italian Red Sauce, Pesto, Carmelized Onions, Provolone and Parmesan Cheeses on a Kaiser Roll

Garlicky Roasted Baby Red Potatoes

I was talking to Dena (one of our legal assistants) yesterday about REMCooks.com and going through some of the photos and recipes (she didn’t know I cooked, much less had a food blog :o). She looked at a few of the entrees but stopped when she saw one of the veggie recipes. “I really need some vegetable recipes” she commented as she was bookmarking the blog. I have found over the course of years that many people feel the same way. People always have a favorite main course or dessert but they are stymied when it comes to veggies. So I posted this veggie side dish. This vegetable side dish is is one of our favorites. We hope you give it a try. Continue reading Garlicky Roasted Baby Red Potatoes

Baby Lady’s Marinated Tofu Stir Fry.

First, I have to say without disclaimer, I absolutely love my wife, the Baby Lady! Although she has no professional training and is self taught in the culinary arts (she is an electrical engineer, teacher and project manager by education and training), she is a fabulous and adventurous cook with an incredible feel for food. She is also one of those people who can go somewhere for dinner and identify every ingredient in a dish. It’s uncanny. Unfortunately, telling a story aint her strength (she will forgive me for this comment, I hope :D). Continue reading Baby Lady’s Marinated Tofu Stir Fry.

Spicy Paprika Cauliflower Soup with Dumplings

One of the food magazines Baby Lady & I read is Saveur. I have a Zinio subscription which is delivered directly to my PC, my MacBook and my iPad. It’s great on the iPad because if I ever want to cook a recipe from it the iPad is so Portable and takes up so little counter space. When I received the November 2011 Saveur magazine, in an article, The Art of Soup, Baby Lady noticed the recipe for Karfiolleves (Paprika Spiced Cauliflower Soup with Dumplings), a traditional Hungarian soup. As it should be, soup making is serious business in Hungary. Most meals in Hungary begin with a soup and cauliflower is a common soup ingredient. Continue reading Spicy Paprika Cauliflower Soup with Dumplings

Asparagus Gruyère Tart

Baby Lady & I love veggies. If it weren’t for the children, we would eat primarily a vegetarian (not vegan) diet. This dish is a show stopper if you like asparagus. If you don’t, well this dish aint your cup of tea but your guests will love it. You will like this dish because it is exceptionally versatile. It can be served for breakfast, as an appetizer or as a side dish with dinner. It is wonderfully flavorful and definitely worth a try. Continue reading Asparagus Gruyère Tart
