Happy birthday, Weekend Herb Blogging! Weekend Herb Blogging is celebrating its second birthday this weekend. Creator Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen has challenged bloggers to incorporate an herb and a veggie into a dish for this weekend’s roundup. I have to admit, mine doesn’t quite fit the bill though, since tomatoes are a fruit, not a […]

Apples, apples, apples. My apple supply from my recent picking binge is finally dwindling. PHEW! I am hoping to get a bit more out of it this week and then all the apple cooking in my house will be over for the winter. Ever wonder what apples are good for specific purposes? Here’s a primer: […]

Okay, I am not one to promote products on here. Really, it’s not my thing. But sometimes when enough good things fall into your lap, you have to talk about it. I’ve been fortunately lately to be invited to join three BzzAgent campaigns — Listerine White Strips (try ‘em, they work), TV Guide (wow, that’s […]

I made two apple cakes last night and totally forgot to take a picture, with the exception of this one. These are the cake remnants (didn’t grease the pan well enough … oops) and ice cream. Mmmm. So good. And the scent that it fills the house with? Pure heaven. Fall has descended on us […]

I promised my applesauce recipe, didn’t I? Well here it goes. Love this applesauce. It is supremely tasty and is a little thicker than applesauces from the jar so it sticks better when eating with chops or potato pancakes or whatever. And you gotta love that this was made with local apples that we picked […]

Have I mentioned that it’s apple season here in the northeast? Of course I have . . . And apple season is off to a great start. The apples are plentiful both in the fields and in my home (we’ve done lots of picking this week!). Will and I went apple picking yesterday . . […]

Here’s another local dish (significance? check out Eat Local Challenge). I took some local ingredients – Swiss chard, a tomato, an onion – and made this fabulous side dish (see above, at top right). It went perfectly with the tangy panko chicken (recipe to come) and lemon feta cous cous. Mmmmm. A note about Swiss […]

Some nights, I just want something fresh and flavorful that cooks in no time. This is one of my favorite dishes for that. I don’t usually specify a pasta or a brand, but this variety is very tasty and works well with the other flavors. Plus the timing is perfect. It takes about 10 minutes […]

Making Gazpacho

I finished up my wealth of tomatoes on Sunday by throwing together an easy gazpacho. Would you believe that before this year, I’d never eaten (or made) gazpacho? I hadn’t. Not sure why — it just wasn’t on the agenda. I checked out a number of recipes before writing this one. Thank goodness everyone in […]
