It’s been so long now do you even remember the curry adventure we began months ago with Basic Chicken Curry? What about the Beef Massaman? Oh, I hope so. Curry-Spiced Roasted Butternut Squash & Curry-Spiced Butternut Squash Soup is a two-fer, two recipes that can be meshed into one or enjoyed separately, but ultimately inviting [...]
Ten years ago, we began remodeling—floor to ceiling, wall to wall, windows and doors—every room in our upstairs was updated. Thanksgiving Day we began in the kitchen, stripping everything down to the studs (fortunately, good friends let us come to their house for dinner). We invested gobs of time, buckets of sweat, and loads of [...]
Last night was a make-it-quick night; the chicken had to be roasted in pieces and the side dish simple. One-Pot Kale and Quinoa Pilaf was a cinch to make and its citrusy flavor, earthy kale, and toasted-seed crunch turned out to be an excellent side for roast chicken. I made a couple substitutions based on [...]
Side dish or main dish, Emeril’s “BLT” Risotto from Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders satisfies. Imagine all the flavors of this lunchtime classic in a hearty, creamy risotto. Fresh baby spinach is the stand-in for the traditional lettuce you would find in a BLT, and it is marvelous. Smoky bacon, aromatic herbs and vegetables, [...]
In honor of so many celebrating Cinco de Mayo, I decided to look through my cookbook, The World’s Finest Food for inspiration for Test Kitchen Tuesday this week. Tacos with Picadillo looked interesting and simple to make—a new twist on an old standby, for sure. According to on-line sources, picadillo is a traditional Latin American [...]
Feature Fridays are just pure fun for me; I hope you enjoy these lighthearted discoveries as much as I do. Today, I just could not help but pass along an article I found on Japanese fruit and vegetable shapes by PingMag. I am sure you have heard of the square watermelons, but now they are [...]
Our daughter loves strawberries. She knows it is important to buy in-season produce, so she looks forward to strawberry season like none other. Here in Colorado the growing season is quite short, so local strawberries are not available until June—this makes me thankful for California growers who can deliver this sweet treat in early April. [...]
Simple appetizer, snack, or lunchtime centerpiece, artisan cheese with honey and aged balsamic vinegar always reminds me of Italy. The first time we experienced cheese presented in this way was in Colle Val d’Elsa, a small town in Tuscany, it was just one more thing we fell in love with there. The sweet server in [...]
Tomato and Basil Bruschetta is a particular favorite when vine-ripened tomato flavor is at its peak. Local farmer’s markets are a great source for providing superior results, as tomatoes and basil take center stage in this recipe.
This salsa recipe is always a welcomed side dish for a picnic or family gathering and easy. You may even like it so much, you’ll buy corn on the cob in anticipation of the left overs!
