    The Pollan Family Table will be discussed in at least one of my In The Kitchen columns in the new year, but I wanted to draw your attention to it now, as I think it’s a great holiday gift item. It’s one of those “well-rounded” cookbooks, full of delicious food to feed your family throughout the … Continue reading

    Just a quick post of two recipes, both from foodnetwork.com, that I had good luck with as part of my Christmas Eve cheese tray. I was trying to throw some lower-fat options into the mix, although I still had plenty of decadent cheeses, including a surprise hit, Trader Joe’s Unexpected Cheddar. Like cheddar with a Parmesan … Continue reading

    In spite of December’s surfeit of traditional holiday foods, I still managed to get in a variety of other dishes, including some ethnic finds. The month started with a very good oyster po’boy at ONE 53 for lunch one day when my nephew brought down my months old grand-nephew Sammy for a visit. I ordered several … Continue reading

  • 01/19/15--12:46: It’s slow-roasting season
  • I love winter food! And one of my favorite things about it is the idea of slow-roasting a “joint” (albeit usually boneless) of lamb or pork all afternoon. The aroma drives me mad. I mean really, really mad. I can’t resist nipping off little pieces from the edges once it’s been in the oven for a … Continue reading

  • 01/25/15--16:13: Storm Food for Snowmageddon
  • Twitter is aflutter with amusing tweets about stocking up with groceries for the coming storm. Are you ready for Snowmageddon? What are your favorite things to eat or drink during a blizzard? (Don’t even think about losing power, in which case all bets are off!) One woman said she’d sent her husband to the supermarket and … Continue reading

  • Even though I’ve resolved to avoid approaching food as medicine, I know I need to get more fruit and vegetables into my diet. I was off to a good start with the vegetables last fall, but then, as the cold and dark closed in, I got lazy, and started hitting the carbs more instead. Bad … Continue reading

  • 05/25/15--12:24: Strawberry Daze
  • My friend Betty and I couldn’t resist stopping by a roadside stand for strawberries the other day, since they just came into season. When I was about 14 or so, my parents planted a large strawberry patch. I promptly developed an allergy to them, so could never have any. How cruel is that? Somehow, though, years later … Continue reading

    I’m notorious for my aversion to hot weather. I’ve stayed home in my central air conditioning all day this summer about as much as I stayed in during our recent icy winter. Fortunately I am not easily bored, I can always find something to do, and am also making up for all the years I … Continue reading

    Did you miss me? I somehow got an early-season flu so have been out of commission for nearly a week! My advice: Get your flu shot early, very early. I usually wait until mid or late October but next year I won’t. I mentioned this salad in my recent post about my three-day cookathon, and wanted to … Continue reading

    Okay, I’m cheating a bit here, I actually made this dish in October, but enjoyed leftovers into November. I even added a random can of gigante beans at the end since I had still more escarole to use up. Braised escarole with white beans is a classic preparation and while I always have beans (dry and … Continue reading

    This all started because I had some pricey “European Style” sour cream from the Whole Earth Center to use up. It was just too good to waste. So I googled, and found a recipe on food52.com for Sour Cream Cardamom Pear Cake. As I started making the recipe, I noticed my butter and sugar were … Continue reading

    I’m patting myself on the back for recognizing early on that Athens native  Alexandra Stratou’s Kickstarter campaign title, Cooking To Share, was a winner. That original self-published edition (she raised almost $40,000!) is worth almost double now, and I treasure my copy, which has some unusual graphic and binding touches. But now, just as I’d … Continue reading
