With Memorial Day right around the corner, the grill is definitely on my mind. I think the number one food for the grill has to be the burger. But how do we take a burger from average to amazing?
First, we skip the hamburger, and go right the steakburger. Kansas City Steak Company makes the tastiest burgers in the biz and because they are made from steak trimmings, they are more juicy and flavorful than you can imagine. So, by themselves, they are delicious, but if you really want to kick it up a notch, add a condiment. Now I don't mean ketchup or mustard, but a... Continue Reading

This one is right around Mother's Day, and I wanted to have a meal that made the whole family happy. My Friday Night Meal this week is from Corky's, and will put a smile on everyone's face! You may get a little messy, but that just means you are doing it right, and brings everyone closer. You get 5 pounds of rib racks, and 2 full pounds of pulled pork. That's a lot of barbecue!
Since The Wishful Dish airs on Mondays at 5pm, anything frozen will get there by Friday. So, when you are tired of making it all come together for the week, I come to the rescue with... Continue Reading

I spent countless hours baking with my Mom, who felt KitchenAid was the best you could get! When I got married, my Dad bought me my KitchenAid mixer, so our family recipes lived on. We do an Easter Cookie that was my Dad's favorite. It is more of a bread dough consistency. I love the way the KitchenAid works through what could be a difficult dough to handle. When my niece and God Daughter got engaged, her shower gift from us was - of course- a Kitchenaid!! Dad was smiling from heaven.

A lot has changed in the kitchen since the days my Grandma Metzger would whip up a batch of her homemade rolls or bake up one of her delicious pies. Refrigerators have doubled in size, ovens now have convection, bakeware is non stick, and spatulas are made out of silicone. What hasn't changed in all that time however is the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. Industrial in design but chic in all of its colors, the Kitchen Aid mixer is a prize in any home kitchen. I started wanting one when I was a teenager! I would see it in the homes of my friends, whose Moms always seemed ... Continue Reading

In one of my recent blogs, I mentioned a white chocolate bread pudding that I make for Christmas Day. Some of you asked me to share it, so here it is.

I bake and serve the pudding in either a Temp-tations® two-quart square baker or Rachael Ray’s Bubble & Brown Ramekins.
I prepare both the pudding and sauce earlier in the day. Then, when the turkey comes out of the oven, I pop the pudding in to warm it up and I reheat the sauce on the stove. You can ... Continue Reading

As the cold air sets in and the holiday festivities begin, we tend to reach for all things comfort. Big blankets, cozy sweaters, and hearty, warm meals that make us feel at peace. Yet come next March when stores begin displaying bathing suits and fun spring fashions, we may regret the many holiday cookies, slices of pie, and legs of turkey we consumed. My mission this season is to create recipes that provide us the sensation of comfort and warmth without the guilt or extra resulting pounds!

I make this year round, but when I prepare it in the fall and winter, it reminds me of when I was young and my mother made it. The closed kitchen windows would steam up as she boiled the pasta, and I would draw pictures in the condensation. Then, while the sauce was simmering on the stove and Mom wasn’t looking, I’d snitch a piece of sandwich bread... Continue Reading

Now, everyone loves a bowl of pasta, but the truth is, one serving (1 cup cooked) possesses a high amount of calories (180-210) and carbohydrates (35-45) while not leaving me very satisfied. The swappable solution? Spaghetti Squash! This vegetable has just 42 calories per cup and 10 carbohydrates. It’s good on the lips and hips! To honor the abundant, beautiful, nutritious vegetables our planet provides, I made a “Pasta” primavera dish. It was quite simple and I must admit that the flavors were so incredible, I ate it a little more quickly than I would have liked because it w... Continue Reading

Mom’s chicken pot pie is one my husband’s favorite dinners. His idea of pot pie and mine are not the same. He grew up in central Pennsylvania, where pot pie is more like a stew/soup. No top pastry, no creamy sauce inside…instead the recipe calls for square noodles (which are called pot pie) chicken and for some reason a hardboiled egg.
At times, I’ve found that recipes that have been passed down may need some tweaking, intuition, translation, or in this case, luck.
