Altering Food Memories

Have you ever thought about your most vivid food memories?

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.

Plums + Buckwheat

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

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

We got carried away at last weekend’s farmers’ market.

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.

Adventures in Canning: Plum Jam

On Sunday, our neighbors invited us over to pick plums from their Italian plum tree.

A Tame Last of the Mohicans Reenactment

We celebrated Easter by driving an hour south of Portland for a ten mile hike among nine waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park.

Pumpkin Wedges

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

Weekday Lunch: Farro Salad with Mushrooms and Squash

I hesitated to pick this recipe initially.

Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving 2011 is one for the record books.

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.

Weekday Lunch: Orzo with Broccoli Pesto

The most recent thief of my cooking motivation is the Fall time change.

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.

A Simple Apple Tart

As predicted, I baked an apple tart from the Nordic Bakery cookbook last week.

Images of Fall

All of these pictures were taken before that unexpected snowstorm we had on Saturday.

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 Pout

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

Sweet Potato Pudding

I'm intrigued by how certain recipes incorporate flavors in untraditional ways.

The Only Thing that Matters is Taste

Do you think this looks like "the death star exploded" (Justin) or something "otherworldly and beautiful" (me)?

Weekday Lunch: Roasted Sweet Potato Salad

I sometimes dread when the clock turns to noon.

Welcoming Fall Flavors

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

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

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.

Goodbye, Fall

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.

Preview: A Weekend in the Berkshires

Highlights of our weekend trip, including what to see and where to stay, will be posted soon.

The best way to eat plums

Last weekend I realized that it had been weeks since I had made anything fruit related.
