    Recipe: Roasted Garlic and Tomato Bread

    Garlic bread is one of those somwhat retro-feeling indulgences, right?  You forget about it (because, really, you’re not supposed to think about garlic bread, are you?  sure you are), and then one day a waiter puts down a basket of hot, buttery, oil-laced garlic bread on the table, announced by its delightfully assertive uber-smell, and...

  • Recipe: Roasted Garlic

    We’ve all ordered things made with roasted garlic in restaurants,  but it’s highly possible that making it at home seemed daunting.  But it’s really so, so easy. Not like “oh soufflés are so easy!”. Like if you can drizzle something with olive oil and wrap it in aluminum foil you can do this easy. Preheat... MORE

    Why I Don’t Hate Making Dinner, and Why I’m Not Embarrassed About It

    Where to begin? Last week Virginia Heffernan got very ornery in The New York Times Magazine about what she perceives as the pressure from us collective food writers — especially those of us who write about families and cooking — to cook, and to like it.  If you read her piece you may be wont to...

  • Pumpkin Gingerbread

    Recipe: Pumpkin Gingerbread with Crystallized Ginger

    This gingerbread smells so good in the oven, and if you are feeling blue, or like you want the holidays to come faster and stay longer, get a pan of this going.  The marriage of ginger and molasses and pumpkin….well, that’s more like a menage a trois than a marriage, but that’s okay, we’re sticking...

  • Pasta with Roasted Pumpkin in a Creamy Sauce

    Recipe: Pasta Shells with Pumpkin in a Creamy, Cheesy Sauce

    While I cook with butternut squash all the time, when I think about cooking with pumpkin I picture a can of puree. But not this year, this year I am grabbing the pumpkin by the stem and here’s the first pumpkin of moment of, I hope, many. This is a decadent cold weather (vegetarian) dish,... MORE

  • Sliced Pumpkin Bread

    Recipe: Moist Pumpkin Bread

    I started making things with pumpkin recently and I just couldn’t stop.  Fresh pumpkin, canned pumpkin, it was like a switch was snapped on, and all I could think about was pumpkin.  It’s hard to say which got a better work out between the two versions, but both my vegetable peeler and my can opener...

  • Beautiful Salad with Spicy Dressing

    Recipe: Baby Romaine, Chickpea, and Root Vegetable Salad with Slightly Spicy Dressing

    Recently I ran into a friend I haven’t seen for a while, a big guy, as in very tall (6’2”, 6’3”, something like that) and while not heavy, substantial; a guy who took up a certain amount of space. But he was downright svelte now, and when I complimented him on his slender new physique... MORE

  • Chicken and Tomato Soup

    Recipe: Fragrant Chicken Tomato Soup

    I am so sad that this photo isn’t prettier.  I am sad because the soup is so freaking good, that I’m worried that this crappy shot might make you say “meh” and skip this recipe.  I’ve said it before and I will surely say it again and again – my favorite recipes in the whole... MORE

  • Garlicky Shrimp and Broccoli

    Recipe: Garlicky Shrimp and Broccoli with Meyer Lemon

    If you are a very confident cook, keep moving, don’t even look at this recipe.  I know, it’s not much of a recipe.  But it was so good, and I know — for sure — that there are plenty of people out there who are aching for a little help in the kitchen, or maybe... MORE

  • Egg and Potato Sald with Bacon

    Recipe: Egg and Potato Salad with Bacon

    When I was a young adult person, pre-kids, I remember discovering this at the deli counter and wondering who the genius was who conceived of mixing egg salad AND potato salad together. Who?  If you know, please tell me, as I would like to properly thank this person. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan... MORE
