How to Make a Big Batch of Roasted Tomato Sauce to Store for the Winter

| September 7, 2007 | 4 Comments

Tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes! When I bought the 10 pounds of seconds tomatoes last weekend, I was worried that my ultimate goal of transforming them into a succulent sauce was, well, a bit lofty. But, fortunately, the plan worked like a charm and I was able to use my small batch process on a much larger […]

When I first created this recipe, I was a risotto novice who wasn’t even sure she liked the creamy, rich rice dish. But this lobster recipe totally converted me into a risotto lover. Lobster Risotto is, in a word, decadent. Creamy rice, cooked low and slow, is dotted with sweet lobster and swirled with Parmesan […]

When I saw these two posts on radishes over at Kalyn’s Kitchen, I was intrigued but not driven to make them. But over the next few days, this one called sauteed radishes with vinegar and herbs remained on my mind. And when I say it remained on my mind, I mean I was virtually obsessed […]

Growing up, meals were pretty simple. My grandmother favored menus with fewer ingredients and less fuss. Pork chops cooked in sauerkraut, or bratwurst, knackwurst or any wurst for that matter, were favorites. Sometimes we’d have lamb chops or a simple beef stroganoff (did I spell that right?). But if were really lucky, she would spend […]

Last week, we relaxed by the Connecticut shoreline. It’s something I have done summer after summer since I was a baby. And it’s something that I hope Will looks back on with fond memories when he’s an adult, just like I do. Some things have changed since childhood though. For instance, whereas my grandmother used […]

So, since the blood orange season is pretty much over and my attempts at making a blood orange vinaigrette will surely take several more attempts, I decided to set that aside for now and use my last blood orange for a special marinade for grilled chicken.

My poor family. They are always my guinea pigs when I experiment with recipes. Some, like this one, turn out great and end up on the blog. Others, like a tragic butternut squash casserole I made for Thanksgiving nearly four years ago plague me. They won’t let me forget the poorly conceived, over sweet dish […]

Tender baked mushrooms are stuffed with a buttery lobster filling in this delicious appetizer recipe. Growing up, I spent every summer on the Connecticut shoreline.

Review: Trader Joe’s Brownie Truffle Baking Mix

I was at Trader Joe’s not too long ago and decided to pick up their Brownie Truffle Baking Mix. I know. Boxed. I don’t do boxed, right? Well generally no, since boxed mixes tend to have more ingredients than I am comfortable feeding my family. Nonetheless, I decided to have an exception since I had […]
