I’ve struggled with the concepts of change and control for as long as memory serves.
As adults, we tend to think of our personalities as fixed.
Altering Food Memories – Have you ever thought about your most vivid food memories?
Storage Onions – You wouldn’t know it from this post, but we cooked with asparagus and strawberries this weekend.
Kitchen Exhaustion – If anyone had walked through my kitchen the Monday after Thanksgiving, they would have stopped in alarm.
Asparagus Pizza at Home – I could eat pizza four days a week and would still excitedly say 'yes' if someone suggested grabbing a pizza on the fifth day.
The Cabbage that Resembled a Brussels Sprout – This cabbage was truly massive.
I already wrote about one way to cook radishes: as a component in a refreshing spring pasta.
Welcoming Fall Flavors – While my closet moves confidently into Fall, my palate is less gung-ho.
Cooking it Fresh: Zucchini – We've now made this galette two times in the last three days.
Cooking it Fresh: Carrots – On Thursday, I spent 45 minutes searching for a carrot recipe.
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.
Birthday (Polenta) Cake – This is actually a dish I was hoping to make the day before Thanksgiving, for all of us to munch on while we were cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
A Harvest Pie – My favorite kind of baking doesn't involve icing cupcakes, decorating cookies, or layering a cake.
End of Summer Reflections – It's time to say goodbye to a busy, memorable, and extremely hot summer.
The Foot Long Zucchini – Frankly, the size of this zucchini is intimidating.
All Day Eating – We viewed the 4th of July as the official kick-off of our summer in Brooklyn.
Chicago Style in New York – In the February issue of Cook's Illustrated, I spotted a challenge that I was eager to take on: Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza.
