Roasted Parmesan Leeks

Roasted Parmesan Leeks

| February 18, 2008 | 3 Comments

In the past, when I have bought leeks, they have sat in my refrigerator until they turned brown, moldy and emitted a disgusting juice that my husband would clean up. That’s the not-so-pretty truth. I’ve wanted to try them, have bought them and then haven’t done a thing with them. Sad, but true. Until now, […]

I have these photos of red cabbage I took recently that I really like . . . so, rather than just show you the photos, I thought I might make them into a moderately useful post. Here are five interesting facts about red cabbage. Red cabbage is a good source of the flavonoids, a powerful […]

Sometimes I will just write down a list of ingredients and guess how much of each one is necessary to make a mouthwatering dish. Sometimes I am right. Sometimes I am way off-base. It was definitely the former when I dreamed up this dish. I was hooked at first bite (and made sure to have […]

I like vegetables a lot. But what I don’t like is boring vegetables — just steamed or boiled and thrown on a plate. I don’t think that does the flavor of any veggies justice. It’s just like cooking with any kind of meat or fish: sure, you could just grill it up and throw a […]

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.

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

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 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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
