    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

  • Lentils, Carrots and Apricots in Pan

    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...

  • Orange and basil egg salad

    Recipe: Simple Orange Basil Egg Salad

    We are always up for a variation of egg salad.  Heap this on crackers, grab some bread or toast and make a sandwich or eat it out of the bowl. Peel and chop the eggs as finely or as coarsely as you wish.  Place them in a medium-sized bowl and add the mayonnaise, orange zest,... MORE

  • Bacon wrapped Brussles sprouts from

    Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts

    Some recipes don’t really need an introduction. Preheat the oven to 400*F. In a medium bowl combine the olive il, vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the Brussels sprout and toss to combine. Heat a large cast iron (or other heavy) pan over medium high heat. While the pan is heating, wrap one of the slices... MORE

  • Sriracha Sauce

    Recipe: Sriracha Mayo

    A sentence I have never said, nor thought I would say:  This recipe is inspired by Guy Fieri. I’m far from a food snob (how far is a little embarrassing sometimes.  Put a bowl of Cheetos in front of me and watch), but I did not imagine myself getting culinarily inspired by someone who wears...

  • orange carrot soup

    Recipe: Orange Carrot Soup

    Carrots are so cheap, why wouldn’t we all cook them more often? That may not sound like a very generous thought, but seriously, this soup is probably less than a buck a serving, and you would never, ever know it – in fact, it seems fancy. And it seems even fancier if you serve it... MORE

  • banana bread

    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
