New Home

Welcome to Recipe Detours Blog! It began as a culinary path on my blog TheSideTrek. The page got full, so now it has a new home of its own.

‘Detours’ are not precise recipes. They are for cooks who like the art of cuisine, not the science. Various ingredient options, general methodologies. Most are creations from my particular preferences and palate. Use them as avenues to make them your own. –Carol Colitti Levine

Meat Street– Braise. Roast. Grill.
Surf Side- Seafood. Fish.
Via Veggie– Suppers. Salads. Sides.
Waffle Way– Brunch. And such.

Carol’s Cupboard– Ingredients, sauces, spices always in my pantry.

What’s in your fridge?
