fall Recipes

Cornbread Pudding

Altering Food Memories – Have you ever thought about your most vivid food memories?

Pear & Rosemary Tart

Rearranging Resolutions – At the start of this year, I’d planned to put myself on a voluntary “sweets” hiatus, prompted by the same desires (cleansing, renewal, focus) most of us feel as we unwrap and hang new calendars and adjust to writing a new digit on letters and checks.

Plum Buckwheat Scones

Plums + Buckwheat – We were once again gifted a box of plums from our neighbors’ plum tree.

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup – We got carried away at last weekend’s farmers’ market.

Miso-Curry Delicata Squash

The Versatility of Delicata Squash – I’m writing this post with my back to our dining room window, which is currently the main source of light in our house.

Italian Plum Jam

Adventures in Canning: Plum Jam – On Sunday, our neighbors invited us over to pick plums from their Italian plum tree.

Crusted Pumpkin Wedges

Pumpkin Wedges – These pumpkin wedges capitalize on the remaining whole pumpkins you can still snag at the farmers' market or grocery store.

Farro Salad with Mushrooms & Butternut Squash

Weekday Lunch: Farro Salad with Mushrooms and Squash – I hesitated to pick this recipe initially.

Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving 2011 – Thanksgiving 2011 is one for the record books.

Potato, Cheese, and Broccoli Soup

The Only Recipe I’ll Need – Sometimes I make a dish and realize that I'll never have to experiment with another version of the recipe again: the one I just made is the only one I need.

Orzo with Broccoli Pesto

Weekday Lunch: Orzo with Broccoli Pesto – The most recent thief of my cooking motivation is the Fall time change.

Squash and Pear Salad

Weekday Lunch: Squash and Pear Salad – When I make a satisfying and seasonal lunch (and have time to take a few pictures before devouring it!), I want to share the recipe with you because if you're anything like me, lunch can be a sore spot in your day.

Apple Tart

A Simple Apple Tart – As predicted, I baked an apple tart from the Nordic Bakery cookbook last week.

Macaroni with Beans, Roasted Pumpkin, and Ham Hock

It’s Worth It – If you caught my recent post about Fleisher's you saw that after two years of vegetarianism, I've started to eat small amounts of meat again.

Brussels sprouts & tofu

Brussels Pout – My dad hates Brussels sprouts to the same degree that I love them.

Sweet Potato Pudding

Sweet Potato Pudding – I'm intrigued by how certain recipes incorporate flavors in untraditional ways.

Baked Apples

The Only Thing that Matters is Taste – Do you think this looks like "the death star exploded" (Justin) or something "otherworldly and beautiful" (me)?

Roasted Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad

Weekday Lunch: Roasted Sweet Potato Salad – I sometimes dread when the clock turns to noon.

Butternut Squash Muffins

Welcoming Fall Flavors – While my closet moves confidently into Fall, my palate is less gung-ho.

Shaker Pumpkin Walnut Bread

Canned Pumpkin Problem – This past Fall, I acted like (some) people do before a big snowstorm and stocked up like I wouldn't be able to leave the apartment all winter.

Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving 2010 – A reflection on this year’s Thanksgiving dinner starts out in a nearly identical fashion to last year’s Thanksgiving dinner post:  we’ve just moved; we want to cook Thanksgiving dinner because we love sourcing and cooking elaborate meals; we view Thanksgiving as a fitting celebration after an exhausting move.

Apple Crostata with Cheddar Crust

A Harvest Pie – My favorite kind of baking doesn't involve icing cupcakes, decorating cookies, or layering a cake.

Sunday is for slow, rich dinners

A few Sundays ago, we were in the mood for a filling, warm, and frankly heavy Sunday dinner.

Open Face Plum Cake

The best way to eat plums – Last weekend I realized that it had been weeks since I had made anything fruit related.
