Love sweet potato fries? This Baked Barbecue Sweet Potato Fries Recipe is easy and delicious. Barbecue seasoning makes these fries really stand out.

Mmm. Carrots. While I am not a huge fan of steamed carrots, I love carrots when they have a lot of flavor — and these do. These aren’t your sweet-glazed carrots. Instead they have a rich savoriness, with a hint of sweetness and a whisper of tartness. They’d be fabulous served with a roasted chicken […]

We’re quickly moving towards wintertime here in New England, and with that comes earlier sundowns and less favorable daytime light. I am struggling with pictures, trying to get tasty shots with what light we have. Although I do have lights and whatnot for shooting photos at night, I have ever been particularly comfortable using them. […]

Back to school is heavy on my mind these days. We are less than a week away from Will starting kindergarten. But as I wrote recently on Tablespoon, it’s Will’s school lunch that I think about most. Ok, think might be an understatement. I obsess. I’ve checked out the lunch menu for his school and […]

I love the taste of roasted leeks. Almost smoky … and so tender, with a hint of crisp. Then there’s the roasted beets, they get this beautiful sweetness to them. But the roasted eggplant? The crispy caramelization on the outside and creamy inside was sublime. As far as eggplant recipes go, this is a new […]

When I moved to New York (as in Manhattan) to go to college, I craved freedom and devoured the city. I walked everywhere, breathing in the skyscrapers and eying the fabulous fashion and amazing pace.

When I saw the eggplant in my CSA basket last week, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Yes, I yelped. I’ve been waiting for eggplant to appear for weeks, which is a funny thing since I didn’t eat it at all for many years. When I was in my early 20s, coworkers of mine gushed about […]

One of the best parts of belonging to a CSA is getting to chat with the farmers when you pick up your share. We discuss the crops, how things are progressing and trade tips on what to do with the produce. Today, the conversation revolved around some cows that the farm will be getting in […]

When the school packet arrived last week, I got choked up. Parked at the top of our long, winding driveway, I quickly scanned the forms for teacher names while the kids demanded to know if there was mail for them. “One second, guys,” I said. It was the last day of July, a beautiful, spotless […]

Growing up, I always picked radishes out of salads. To me, they were a garnish that shouldn’t be consumed ever. The fierce peppery-ness just didn’t appeal to me at all. But then, a few years ago, I tried Balsamic Sauteed Radishes and it was a complete revelation. The peppery taste of the little, hard, red […]
