Last week, I was shocked to receive two boxes of tamales, chiles and fresh tortillas overnighted from New Mexico. I’ve been working part-time as web designer, tech support and teaching assistant for Cook ‘n Scribble, and one of our students generously sent us some New Mexican treats for the holidays. Thank you, Rosa! After a [...]
This would be recipe #2 from my vegetable cooking binge. Remember when I said that I didn’t usually like winter squash unless it was pureed or on a pizza? Well, I was wrong. I should have known that I would also enjoy it simmered in brown butter. Because what isn’t delicious when simmered in brown [...]
Another recipe pulled from my 2009 archives. Another recipe that shouldn’t be lost to my days of terrible photography and shaky blogging. I went on a vegetable-cooking binge on Sunday evening. Subconsciously determined to dirty every pot, pan and mixing bowl I own, I canned pint after pint of applesauce and tested a new vegetable [...]
I’ve had collard greens once. I was a little wary of them, so I covered them in butter and cream. Does that negate all of their nutritional value? Probably. But we did eat them all! I told myself I would try them again, but it never actually happened. For some reason, I impulsively grabbed a [...]
Guess where these carrots came from? The Savvy Garden! I came to some realizations about my garden this weekend: 1. Having a black walnut tree above our yard means I must be vigilant about removing every single walnut that falls into the raised beds, or some of my vegetables will die. The tree has been [...]
As much as I love the gardening, cycling and all-around warmth that comes with summer, it doesn’t hold a candle to fall. I love the slightly-cooler temperatures and changing leaves of fall. I love the apples, pears and pumpkins. And I can’t get enough of the warming comfort of fingerless gloves, slipper socks, and a [...]
I have this aversion to savory baked goods. A completely unfounded, I’m-not-sure-where-it-came-from aversion. Which is why I don’t know what possessed me to make spinach-, chive- and Parmesan-filled muffins to go with dinner last night. Whatever it was, it will happily be welcomed back. Because not only was this my first venture into the realm [...]
Spring training for Major League Baseball starts this week. To say the least, Dan is a little excited. He is a HUGE Milwaukee Brewer’s fan, and they have a great line-up this year! Well, according to him they do. I tend to take his word for it on all baseball-related matters.
It’s okay though. He takes my word for it on all food-related matters, so we’re about even.
So while he’s thinking about the team and whether or not there is a game we can go to now that we live in New York, I’m thinking about the ultimate stadium snack: soft pretzels.
