    Recipe: Baked Squash with Chili and Maple Syrup

    Firstly, every once in a while I have to start off by apologizing for the photo.  This is clearly the case here. In the CSA I belong to, there are always one or two items that I don’t immediately have a vision for, which is really what I love about it.  Recently there was sorghum,... MORE

  • Klein's of Westport


    When I was 7 my family moved from New York City to Westport, CT.   My father was the catalyst for this event.  My mother could not have been less happy.  To this day she will tell people that “you can still see my heel marks on exit 17 when Peter turned off the highway.”  She... MORE

  • Chocolate Caramel Frappe

    Recipe: Caramel Chocolate Frappe

    The definition of Frappe (or Frappé, to be accurate) is a bit contentious, especially in terms of how it differs from a milk shake.

    Recipe: Carrot Raisin Bread

    I bought a 5-pound bag of carrots the other day.  That’s a lot of carrots.  This was one of the things that happened with a five pound bag of carrots. I continue to purchase pans and baking dishes in slightly odd sizes at flea markets, and each and every time it motivates me to make... MORE

    How to Create an Amazing Cheese Platter

    Creating a beautiful cheese platter is one of the most festive ways to entertain, especially during the holidays. An assortment of cheeses and accompaniments is just bewitching to look at, and introducing people to new cheeses is a lot of fun. And I’m no longer surprised by this – though I was – but it... MORE

    Recipe: Lentils and Carrots with Dried Apricots

    I have mentioned here and again that I have quite a number of vegetarians in my world, so that while I am not a vegetarian myself, I am always seeking out ideas for meatless food. My mom recently had surgery (she’s just fine, thank you very much), and when someone I love is under the... MORE

    7 Ways to Make Your Thanksgiving Easier, Or How to Kick Thanksgiving’s Butt

    It often seems that those who love/like Thanksgiving the most have an inverse relationship to how much time they spend preparing the Thanksgiving meal.  It’s easy to like a holiday where copious amounts of food magically appear on a table with pie waiting at the end.  That’s not quite fair, but it’s up to us...

    The Thanksgiving Timeline, for Reals

    I am sharing all of my best tips and advice about making your Thanksgiving as smooth as a bowl of silky whipped sweet potatoes, but while these bits of advice are very useful, and I do stand by them, I also want to offer a glimpse what turkey day actually looks like in our home.... MORE

  • Carrot Fries

    Recipe: Carrot Fries with Sriracha Sauce

    I bought the most WONDERFUL bunch of carrots in all shades of reds and yellow and oranges the other day, and after slicing them up to make carrot sticks for nibbling, it occurred to me that the carrots sticks were quite similar to french fries in shape, and thusly – since they are a root...
