Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

Discovering Kale: Zuppa Toscana

| July 29, 2006 | 4 Comments

Kale. Even the word is foreign to me. I grew up in a household where vegetables were of pretty simple varieties – corn, peas, green beans and the occasional zucchini. Brussels spouts were a delicacy and any lettuce other than iceberg was certainly special. I had a feeling there were more vegetables out there, but […]

I am not a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. Really. I rarely touch them. So you can imagine my surprise when that was exactly what I wanted – no craved – last week. It must be the hot weather getting to me…or the medicine for the bronchitis (yes, ladies and gentlemen, I managed to […]

I was having a craving for deep dish pizza last week and decided to try making it at home. I’ve made thin crust pizza dough a few times before by hand, but have never made deep dish or used my Breadman to create the dough. I decided to do both this time. Using the Breadman […]

I made these triple chocolate chunk chocolate cookies. YUM. Let me tell you. They are simply amazing. The combination of flavors is exquisite. My husband was so excited about them that he ate three as soon as he came home. But then again, so did I. That’s why I have been bad. I ate too […]

Yes, my obsession with the grill continues . . . These lovely grape tomatoes were $1 for the pint at my local Big Y supermarket this week (sorry to all the Eat Local bloggers, farm markets here have yet to open. In fact, most aren’t opening until late June/early July.) In any case, I decided […]

I’ve been admiring the baby vegetables in the produce section of my local supermarket recently and finally gave into the temptation this past week, picking up a pack of fresh baby corn. I am all for eating locally, but for now I must resign myself to the grocery store for vegetables. Here in New England, […]

I make no secret of it. I love asparagus. When I was younger, I would eagerly eat the tender tips and skip the thready bottom, but with age I have come to even appreciate that aspect. And now I know that I could always peel that off with a vegetable peeler. For the past month […]

ARF: Fiddlehead Greens Salad

I was wandering the produce section of a local supermarket . . . I do that a lot . . . and came across these interesting greens right next to the sugar snap peas. “Fiddlehead greens,” the package proclaimed. They weren’t too expensive ($2.50 or so, for the package) so I decided to pick them […]
