New Food of the Month: Plantains  

While recently perusing the tropical fruit section, my daughter spotted several varieties of bananas: There were mini bananas which are just right for a quick bite to eat - delicious eaten raw since they ripen quickly and are very sweet. There were larger, greener bananas on another shelf: plantains. Voila! There was our new food of the month, plus a bit of geography, all in one.

Kids Who Don't Like Veggies  

Okay, I'll admit it: My kids thought it was odd that Mary Kate and Ashley were singing that if they were president, they wouldn't have to eat their vegetables (in Our First Video, filmed circa 1993). They were dancing and singing with their much detested large, green stalks of broccoli. But my kids wanted to know: What's all this hoopla about green veggies? Is broccoli really that terrible tasting? Well, yes. Yes, that is, if you have sensitive tastebuds.

Roadmap to Dinner  

When eating with others, whether at a restaurant or a good dinner party, I often hear people say "if only I cooked like this, I might cook more." Just this past weekend at a yoga retreat I heard many of my famished fellow yogis make this claim as we stood in line waiting to fill our plates with the guest chef's mostly delicious vegetarian selections. As I heard person after person make this statement in reference to the superbly spicy lentils, beautifully smoky roasted red pepper soup, and delec

Poppy Seed, Poppy Do!  

I recently went on a long road trip, by myself. I don't mind traveling solo. In fact, there is something therapeutic about facing the world and the road totally on your own, with only your thoughts and your actions to consider. There were some sketchy moments, though. Stopping for gas after dark became a sort of Russian roulette. I had about six seconds to evaluate the safety of the gas station before I had to make the decision to exit or continue. Eating alone, even just for a quick lunch, alwa

Slow Food For a Fast World  

Your dinner tonight is going to be really "slow," but you will have it on the table from start to finish in under half an hour. Sounds crazy, right? Normally "slow" is not a word people want associated with their dinner recipes. But when you are talking about Slow Food, as in the Slow Food Movement, it is a word that you just might consider using for your next meal. Slow Food is an international non-profit organization with a mission of connecting producers of traditional foods and the consumer

I Heart Fish in Parchment  

If fishing was easy it would be called catching, or so said a bumper sticker I read somewhere. Truth is I kind of wish fishing was more like catching. Fishing may be as all-American a summer pastime as baseball, but after trying my hand at it once every few years I've just decided it's not for me. The problem is I just want the fish. The thought of finally reeling one in and then tossing it back in the water in the name of sport just doesn't make sense to me. As that fish is freed from the hook

Cioppino: An Everyday Delight  

There are at least four or five dear friends of mine who would stake claim to cioppino as his or her favorite food. And it is not just my friends, for I have more than once overheard a woman talk about her boyfriend with statements such as, "Cioppino is most definitely Ben's favorite food. Every time it is on a restaurant menu he has to order it." Few dishes that I can think of have the power to evoke such strong statements from so many.

A Dinner to Transition With the Season  

With the weather making a gradual transition from winter to spring, so changes my cooking. The winter, though not particularly cold this year, was enough so to warrant those heartier dishes that stick to the ribs, warm the belly, and generally bulk up the body to protect against the cold. This year I managed a host of these traditional winter foods. There was the beef bourguignon, simmered low and long until the sauce was an unctuous red-brown and the beef so tender it melted with the slightest

A Little on the Irish...  

Corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, potato pancakes or soda bread. Our family is not Irish, but we enjoy a li'l touch o' the green festivities at this time of the year. And although we've been to parties where that touch o' green is just that the beer has been dyed green, my favorites are the new foods we try that aren't part of our daily fare. So this year, we made an Irish soda bread with a vegetable- and potato-rich stew. And many automatically think potatoes when we think Irish food. That's

Dijon Honey Chops  

Meaty pork chops are cooked in a skillet with a honey-mustard-orange sauce.

An "Irish" Tradition  

There is an annual St. Patrick's Day tradition of making corned beef and cabbage and washing it down with a pint of green beer. But did you ever wonder, where did these traditions come from? Well, the green beer is easily explained - green being the official color of the St Patrick's Day holiday and the Emerald Isle ñ along with the marketing of green brew by all the major American beer brands and local Irish pubs at this time of the year. The corned beef and cabbage is another story. We

Firehouse Cooking  

Over the last year I have gotten into the habit of going to the grocery store right after hitting the gym in the evening. I know that the story is that you should never go shopping for food when you are already hungry. But it's so convenient because they are right across the street from one another. And I usually like to shop for my ingredients pretty close to the time I will actually be cooking them. Recently, I noticed I wasn't the only one to go food shopping at the same time every evening. T

Slow Cooking a Different Kind of Stuffed Pepper  

Because I am so adventuresome about food now, it may come as a surprise to many people I know that growing up I was a very picky eater. My parents did everything the right way, exposing us kids to the wonders of fresh vegetables and new and interesting cuisines, but I was often the last one stuck at the table (We followed the old fashioned clean your plate rule). I never let things like mushrooms, tomatoes, or red meat pass my lips, and more likely ended up feeding them to the family dog or wadd

Quick Tandoori-Style Chicken  

Traditional tandoori chicken is an involved cooking process. This quick-and-easy version gives you all the great flavor without all the work.

Lotta Chocolate Love  

We just love chocolate around here. In fact I've been seriously considering buying more than one or two packs of chocolate chips at a time. For it seems like whenever I need to bake a batch of cookies there aren't any left! But isn't there an old adage: the more you buy, the more you use ... ? So I'm not so sure that buying more will suffice, since it'll probably just have us all consuming even more chocolate.

2017-03-05 02:37:07

The Hidden Potential of an Unloved Vegetable  

I'm a sucker for an under-appreciated vegetable. Usually this inclination results in the dramatic rescue of a forlorn cabbage, celery root, or bunch of chard from a stand at a Farmer's Market. I then coddle that forgotten, beautiful-in-its-own-special-way veggie and whisk it back to my kitchen, intent on transforming the ugly ducking into a beautiful swan worthy meal come dinnertime. Kohlrabi, perhaps one of the saddest of the root vegetable bunch, was brought to my attention a bit differently t

More Box Lunch Ideas: Ten Sandwiches Go Meatless  

Now that we've unwrapped a whole new year, the rubber really hits the road with getting back to the regular routine. Sometimes I feel a little forlorn and let down when I open the refrigerator door to pack some lunches and want to step past the same old, same old... Several weeks ago I wrote "A Look at Lunch: Thinking Outside the Box", and realized that there's so much more to be done with the humble sandwich. Sure, ham and cheese tops the list, but when you're looking for ways to spruce up your

The Best Stir-Fry Ever  

What's not to love about a stir-fry for dinner? 1. It's quick. 2. It's easy. 3. It's healthy. But rely on it too many nights and it's ... well, boring. While we often fall back on a stir-fry when it seems like there's nothing else in the house for dinner, I really was getting awfully bored with the same old, same old carrots, onions, peas and rice. Yeah, for some reason these three are the most common veggies that get seared and saut

A World of Beans  

Beans are not one of those foods that you find people writing sonnets about. Aside from the well known children's verse, "Beans, beans, the musical fruit", only the story of Jack and the Beanstalk seem to give much credit to the legume. And yet, for all the general literary disregard, beans have one of the richest histories of cultivation as a crop and remain a staple food in many parts of the world today. A closer examination of this diverse food might just reveal that the bean deserves a promo

Eggs In Purgatory  

These eggs may be in purgatory, but you'll be in heaven! Also known as shakshuka, this underappreciated dish is best served with good bread to mop up all the tomatoey, eggy goodness. There's no wrong time to eat it: totally fair game for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

2017-03-02 02:57:53

Leave No Stem Behind  

Growing up my father was known to cook one dish: stir-fry. My dad was not like other dads in a lot of ways. Cooking was no exception. Where other fathers mastered the domain of the barbecue, specializing in smoke and big hunks of meat, mine was the king of vegetables and tofu fried up in an ancient wok. I was thinking of my dad and his stir-fry this week as I was working with some vegetables lying around the house. Dad's stir-fry was not a complicated dish but he made that it into an art putting

Disarming Potatoes  

Poof! With just one quick poke of my cooking fork, a mini explosion erupted from the golden baked brown Idaho to release shards of fresh and tender potato all over the bottom of my recently cleaned oven. Why is it when I'm in a hurry I somehow end up making more work for myself? That's what happened recently when I was in a bit of a rush and slipped some potatoes in to bake while I put groceries away and then hustled around taking care of some other household business. There's a simple yet divi

Noodles to Last a Lifetime  

I was chatting with some friends the other day about what we would want to have if we were stuck on a desert island and could only eat a few foods for the rest of our lives. This all started when we were at a restaurant where in lieu of bread they served the most addictive wasabi popcorn. Our waitress insisted that if she could only have one food for the rest of her life, on this imaginary deserted island, it would be just that, popcorn. It takes a rather intense love of a food to think you coul

A Moveable Breakfast  

You know those mornings when everyone is trying to rush out the door to meet the school bus and get to work on time? If this is your reality on most weekday mornings then you're definitely not alone. Too many of us feel that morning crunch and while we know that skipping breakfast is not the best alternative, especially for growing kids, some days even sitting down to a bowl of cereal seems like it takes too much time.

Pizza Is What It's All "Crocked" Up To Be  

In middle school, I had a friend who lived in Italy for three years. Her dad was in the military, and he had an opportunity to accept an assignment overseas. For three years, she sent me letters about food, her mom shopping in the street markets for tomatoes and cheese, and pictures of her leaning against ancient-looking walls. A few years ago, my dad had to go on a business trip to Italy, to speak at a conference. My little sister was able to go with him, and she brought back pictures from Rome

Presto, Pistachio Pesto!  

Recently I had a wonderful meal at a nearby Italian restaurant that specializes in homemade pasta and sauces. The owners are from Italy and don't serve the Italian American standard spaghetti and meatballs and garlic bread like most of the rest of the Italian joints around town. Instead they offer authentic Italian sauces such as Puttanesca (tomatoes, olives, chili peppers, anchovies, capers, and garlic), Carbonara (Pancetta, eggs, and black pepper), Walnut Cream sauce, and Ragu Bolognese, over

Here to Stay: Whole Grain Snack Ideas  

My kids have a joke about my favorite bread: it's that 12-plus multi-grain bread with all those crunchy seeds and grains. They say "the more, the better for Mom!" and wonder if there will ever be a 100-grain variety. Yep, I actually like that stuff better than the white fluff. I'm lucky: My kids like it too. As you've probably read before, you know that my kids are adventurous eaters - they're willing to try unusual combinations or take just one bite of a questionable new dish. What more could

Eat More Apps, Add Spice to Your Life  

If variety is the spice of life, then there is nothing spicier than an entire meal of appetizers. All it takes is one look at the prevalence of restaurants featuring small plates to realize that this whole variety thing is a dining trend that has really taken hold. Of course, in many parts of the world, eating small plates of many different foods has been part of their culture for a very long time. But whether your idea of variety is ten different dipping sauces for your French fries or ordering

Kitchen Sparks Fly When Opposites Attract  

There is a reason the old saying exists, 'opposites attract.' It is just that we don't think of that saying all that often in relation to food. Great food is a part of life that elicits such passion that people you would never think of getting along are brought together. Likewise when cooking, ingredients you might never think of using in the same dish can be brought together in beautiful harmony. Over the years a love of great food has made me friends with people I might barely have spoken to

Applebee's Perfect Margarita

Dippity Do: Easy After-School Snacks  

When your kids get home hungry and tired after a busy day of school, what do they need most? Well, besides a welcome smile and hug and a listening ear, they probably need a healthy protein boost to pick them up after the tests and tribulations of their day. Although June Cleaver may have had her Leave It to Beaver family noshing on homemade cookies and milk daily, today's watch words are working parents and strained schedules - not to mention sugar, fat and carbs.

Presidents' Day and PB & J  

Some of us may have grown up eating it every day like clockwork for lunch - and never want to see it again. Others of us are still enamored with the classic taste of that creamy peanut butter and sweet grape jelly, otherwise known as PB&J. A taste that brings back days of slides, swings and playing tag at recess. My mom didn't serve up PB&J sandwiches very often, and that may be why I still like it - and yes, as a kid I thought those peanut butter and marshmallow sandwiches from the cafeteria we

Mix 'n Match Pasta  

Just yesterday I looked in my pantry and was speechless: no pasta left? No boxes or bags of elbows, spirals or linguine left anywhere? Of course, after the kitchen's demolition and remodeling (complete with house painting), that's probably not quite such an unusual happening, eh? Just getting everyone fed and keeping our lives going through that major routine-upheaval had me thinking about things that didn't include pasta. But it's one thing that I committed to that I'll do from here on out:

The New Couscous Is Fregola  

Doesn't there always seem to be a starch of the moment? At one time couscous, the pointillist pasta of North Africa, was all the rage. Then people began forgoing wheat and the wind shifted west to the Americas and quinoa, a gluten-free seed more toothsome than couscous with all the same ease and speedy cooking. Great grains like barley and farro have had their moment, tossed into salads, cooked à la risotto, and posing as pedestals for filet mignon and seared sea bass. Each newcomer treads the...

President's Day is Full of Beans

It is a historical and patriotic tribute in recognition of the upcoming President's Day holiday, and because February is a time when my family celebrates a very special tradition, Bean Day. So whether you got the memo or not and did or didn't eat beans on February 3rd, please read on and share beans as well as our country's history. The First Bean Day (As told by my great grandmother Nadine Giles) In early February, 1863,

Classic Tom Collins  

This is a refreshing cocktail that tastes like sparkling lemonade, with a gin kick. The origins of the Tom Collins are a bit muddy. Prior to the drink there was another drink called the "John Collins" which used Old Tom gin along with lemon juice, sugar, and club soda. It's speculated that the name morphed into "Tom Collins" from that.

A Chocolate Candygram of a Meal for Valentine's Day  

When I was in elementary school, I was--how do I put this?--awkward. An unfortunate pixie haircut (before it was cool), braces (before there was Invisiline) and the general dorkiness associated with the "Gifted and Talented" class I was enrolled in meant that, come Valentine's Day, I wasn't near the top of many people's Valentine card list. When it came to Valentine's Day giving, after one outgrew the the grade school ritual of hand-delivering little cards bought in bulk to classmates' homemade

Yes, Man Can Live On Taco Alone  

As my brother and I sat down earlier this week to eat our third and fourth tacos of the day, what dawned on me was not that there was anything wrong with this eating pattern but rather that it was so natural I would have no problem eating tacos the next day as well. The thing is, my two-taco lunch (carnitas in a soft shell and shredded chicken in a hard shell) had been so unlike my two-taco dinner (vegetarian in a hard shell and ground turkey in a soft shell) that they indeed felt like extremely

When new friends find out I am a cook, questions inevitably follow. "My chicken never gets crispy and always dries out. What am I doing wrong?"

It so intimidates people it seems, that many forgo cooking it altogether. The possibility of producing moist, flavorful filets is simply so foreign that many don't even bother trying. T
