    Recipe: Mini Banana Bread Loaves

    Many banana bread and muffin recipes are similar.   Hell, many are the same.  But that’s quite all right.  Because you may tweak the proportions a bit, but with some eggs, sugar, flour, and fat in the form of butter or oil, or dairy (or more than one of the above), and a group of over... MORE

  • Pork Loin with Brown Rice Salad

    Recipe: Grilled Pork Loin with Brown Rice Salad

    This is not the first pork loin recipe I’ve offered up.  I don’t know what took me so long to recognize that this cut of meat is a total and complete life saver.  It’s cheap (I guess I should say economical, which sounds classier), it’s easy to find, it takes well to all kinds of... MORE

    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
