Tears Run Rings? Not With Vidalias  

Unlike a spicy or "hot" onion, Vidalias are sweet and you can bite into 'em like an apple! And because they are sweet, they don't make your eyes burn when you cut 'em. So, you bachelors out there who are not fond of onions, seek out a Vidalia---you don't have much time left!

Camp Cooking In The African Bush  

For the past two weeks I have been living out of a car. Not just any car, a gold Toyota Corolla packed to the steel frame of its capacity with luggage, camping gear, and food for a two-week journey. Like many people will do this summer, my boyfriend and I are on a road trip, splitting our time between camping and sleeping in modest rented rooms. Unlike most people this summer, our road trip is through the vast desert expanses of Namibia. Mentally we have been gearing up for this African adventur

Fiery Chilies For Red Hot Summer  

It's getting hot out there. And I'm not just talking about the temperature. Check out the wares next time you are at the Farmer's Market or roaming the produce aisle and you might notice an explosion of a certain type of colorful, fiery vegetable: the chili. Chilies thrive in hot weather, almost certainly a factor on their widespread use in the cuisines of so many sweltering countries from Mexico to Mozambique, Thailand to Jamaica. With much of the United States feeling as hot as the Sahara this

Pistachio-Crusted Halibut  

This fish is a little nutty (in a totally delicious way). A coating of breadcrumbs and pistachios give seared halibut some extra crunch.

What To Do With Too Many Tomatoes  

It happens to the best of us: one day we walk into the kitchen and realize that tomatoes are everywhere. It might have begun with a trip the farmers market where a wedge of a purplish-red Brandywine seduced you into taking home several pounds of beautiful-ugly heirloom tomatoes. Then there was your neighbor, whose months of labor in the garden resulted in a bumper crop of juicy red giant beefsteak tomatoes. And even your own attempts at growing, perhaps a little potted grape tomato vine, has sta

Summer Pineapple Cake  

This summery recipe starts with a white cake mix that is mixed with crushed pineapple, rum, and egg white. Once baked it's topped with a sweet pineapple icing and garnished with toasted coconut.

A Most Unusual Birthday  

Birthdays and birthday cake. They pretty much go hand-in-hand here in America, right? Well, sure - if the birthday person likes cake, that is. Who in the world doesn't like cake, huh? Well, in our house, some family members could just as well do without the sweets. So that naturally parlays over into our birthday celebrations too. Forget the double- or triple-layer delight - all they would really prefer is a hearty, filling meal. Sans the sweets. Now, that sure isn't me. No matter the meal, I a

Garden Fresh and Good For You  

As a novice green thumb, I have become more and more interested in gardening as the years go by. I planted a couple of different kinds of tomatoes in pots this year, and lots of fresh herbs. And through trial and error, I am learning how to keep each plant going. Right now is just the time of year when summer veggies are starting to come into their peak, and I am getting excited to see the fruits of my labor. Having grown up on a farm, my dad always kept a healthy vegetable garden, and has passe

Did You Celebrate National Junk Food Day?  

Junk food. What do those two words bring to mind? How 'bout potato chips, pizza, Pop Tarts and doughnuts? Funnel cakes, Twinkies, and Tastykakes? Cheese puffs, candy bars and double-stuff Oreos? I bet you could list even more too! Yeah, when someone says junk food, I get this instant clip art visual in my brain - one that leaves me with that I've-eaten-but-I'm-still-hungry feeling. It's kind of like when I've eaten at McDonald's: the food tastes good while I'm eating it (and I'm usually very

Plan B on the Road: Food That Travels Well  

If this summer finds you and your family motoring to the beach, the campsite or a summer cottage, there's one thing you can count on: hungry kids. Plan A: Hop in the car and go. Stop at any available fast food joint when hungry. Stand in line or wait in drive-thru. End up spending twice as much time and money as originally planned. Plan B: Pack some quick and easy nutritious foods in a cooler. Stop at a shady park or rest stop and spend just the right amount of time eating, walking and stretchin

Asparagus and...  

At some point during the day, most of us will ask the question "What's for dinner tonight?" For the past six weeks, I knew with a good degree of certainty that my answer to that question would be "asparagus and..." Our asparagus harvest was abundant. Everyday I picked between 10-15 beautiful spears. We started the bed three years ago and in order to allow for the crowns to develop a strong root system, we had to be patient and limit our harvesting to a few short weeks last year. But now that t

Street Food Made Simple, Part II  

Eating street food in Asia it is easy to wonder how so much good food can be made so quickly. Not all street foods are easy to make at home. Some equipment like super hot gas flames or open charcoal fires would probably not pass indoor fire regulations. However there are several lessons from cooking these fast foods of Asia that can be taken off the streets and into the kitchen for the everyday cook.

Gone Fishin'  

Summertime should be full of activities that the snowy winters, rainy springs, and chilly autumns don't allow. Playing baseball till the sun goes down, swimming all day until your skin is the color of a tomato, lazily floating along a crystal clear lake with a fishing pole in hand: these are the moments summer is made of. And yet this time of year it is easy to look back and realize that the summer has nearly slipped by without you stopping for one second to enjoy a swing of the bat, dip in the

California Root Beer  

You'll notice that there is no root beer in this recipe. It's titled as such because the unique blend of ingredients creates a root beer like flavor (with a kick!)

Lunch on the Rocks  

So many of the top chefs are going back to basics by bypassing the fusion route and stressing simple, fresh ingredients done to perfection so that natural flavors shine through. I am in complete agreement with this fresh ingredients craze. Why use anything else really? In fact, one should make it a rule of thumb to skip right past the canned and dried fruits and vegetables when fresh produce is readily available. And when you feel the need to spice things up a bit, you can still use simple fres

Grilled Fish Tacos with Thai Slaw

Fruit and Ice Make Summer Nice  

In the peak of summer heat, it takes more than water to cool the body down. If it is the end of a long day working in the yard, a cold beer at sunset might be in order. A jog through the neighborhood in full sun might require the patronage of a pint-sized lemonade stand along the way. Or for a more filling yet still cooling beverage, a chilly smoothie of frozen fruits and yogurt could be just the thing to cool down without weighing down when the sun is blazing. In parts of the world where summer

Baking In The Sweet Scent Of Summer  

I don't bake much these days. This poses a problem at times like these where a whiff of a ripe Georgia peach at the market is enough to send my head spinning in nostalgic longing for a crusty biscuit topped cobbler. Or the sight of a pile of apricots takes me back to faraway place where my younger self scrambled up a neighbor's tree to collect the small fuzzy fruit. A paper bag bulging with our collection would form a week's worth of cake-topped puddings and afternoon snacks on lazy summer days.

Sweet Potato Ice Cream  

This ice cream is wonderfully rich and creamy! The flavor of the sweet potato is subtle. If you freeze it overnight, the flavor will be a little more pronounced than when it freshly comes out of the ice cream maker.

Going With the (Whole) Grain  

I recently realized that during the summertime, our children's normally healthy eating habits can fall by the wayside. Regular routines get relaxed along with carefully planned menus. Long afternoons spent at the pool or beach lend themselves to easy dinners like pizza or hot dogs. Plus there are all kinds of treats like toasted marshmallows and ice cream sundaes with all the fixings. What would childhood be without these things? One way that we can ensure our children do still eat somewhat heal

Souperb Ideas For Summer  

Summer is the perfect time for soup. Chilled soup, that is. Most of us think of soup as the start to a meal, or a single hearty helping to warm our bodies from the winter chill. Soup can be equally satisfying when cold and just as effective to soothe us from the summer sizzle. With all the seasonal produce available, it is easy to prepare and often healthy to eat. Cold soup can be served as a first course, main course, or even dessert. Some soups are cooked first then chilled, while others are m

Going Off The Grid  

My wish for cooler weather was granted one quiet afternoon last week, when the familiar smell of ozone that precedes a lightning storm hit the air. As our dog started to do her normal pre-storm routine of hiding under the bed and curling into the smallest and tightest ball she could, I knew we were in for a doozy. This storm was unlike anything I had seen before. As we watched out the window, all the trees in the yard looked as if they were going to be uprooted, and the rain was coming down side

Patio Produce: Lettuce  

You don't need acres of land to grow your own fresh, healthy and delicious produce. In fact, you don't need any land at all. If you have a sunny spot on a patio, you're in business. And while you aren't going to get large yields, it's fun to watch the plants progress and even more fun to celebrate with a special meal made with your harvest. One of the easiest patio crops to grow is lettuce. Lettuce is the second most popular vegetable in the United States. Americans eat about 30 pounds of it per

Herbed Pork Steaks

Vinegar, Vincotto, and Verjus: Part Two, Vincotto  

Sweeter and thicker than traditional vinegars, vincotto is a condiment that no foodie's pantry should be without. The word vincotto is translated as "cooked wine." Vincotto is made from Negroamaro and Black Malavasia grapes that have been left to dry on the vine or over wooden frames. The dried grapes are then gently boiled for at least 24 hours until the juices are reduced to 20% of their original volume. The resulting syrup, along with the mother vinegar or starter, is stored in aged oak barre

Can't Stand the Heat? It's All Cool in the Kitchen  

They tell me it has been unseasonably hot here in So Cal the last week. I wish I could confirm or deny that rumor, but sunstroke has left me a little delirious and thus my opinion can hardly be trusted. Do not fear, though, a steady diet of mojitos and coconut sorbet seems to have me on the road to recovery. I am sure I will be back to lounging beachside on my well-oiled back-side in no time. In the meantime, hot chocolate, Hot Tamales, and hot kitchens must all be avoided as any one of those mi

A Very Serious Matter  

Usually I like to take a lighthearted approach in this column and talk about fun topics associated with cooking and eating with kids. But this week I would like to turn to a more serious matter ñ that of food safety. Recently I had my first choking scare with my older son. A peaceful calm had descended over the house as we approached the bedtime hour. In the evening, my older son usually gets a couple minutes to wind down with his latest favorite TV show while I get our baby boy ready to

Stewing Georgia Style  

Way down in South Georgia, not too far from the Florida border, is one of the most active port towns on the Atlantic: Brunswick. Most of we sons of Georgia make it through Brunswick at least once, sometimes on the way to Jekyll or St. Simon's island (where I camped as a Boy Scout a few times). One of the town's claims to fame is Brunswick stew, a tomato based vegetable stew that my grandmother loves to eat with saltines. Now, I gotta say that this stew looks just like you-know-what, replete with

Knee High by the Fourth of July  

Every gentleman farmer knows that corn in the fields should be knee high by the fourth of July. It's an eagerly anticipated sign that the corn crop is on schedule for maturing on time. Our sweet corn is just about knee right now and I can hardly wait for that first ear to mature. Sweet corn is a popular planting for the home gardener. If you have the available space (you'll have to plant it in several rows or a block to assure proper pollination) and the proper environment (a long growing season

Street Food Made Simple, Part I  

Imagine driving down the main street of your town. As you drive you pass the bright lights of the many fast food restaurants that beckon you to stop for a quick dinner on the way home from work or a brief sit at a plastic chair for lunch. Now imagine that, instead of each of these fast food restaurants being part of a multi-national chain, each one has a sole owner and proprietor. In place of a generic assortment of burgers and fries, chicken sandwiches and limp salads, each of these quick stop

The Other Independence Day  

Chances are as you are reading this article you still may be recovering from a 4th of July celebration. But before you write off the rest of the summer as devoid of meaningful holidays until the fall, consider that there is another holiday around the corner much sooner than you would think. Take the fourth of July and stick a "1" before the 4 and you have the second best holiday of the summer, le quatorze juillet, or the Fourteenth of July--Bastille Day as we like to call it on this side of the

New Food of the Month: Key Limes  

July's new food of the month packs a lot of punch into a little package, for it offers not only a cool and refreshing taste, but also an interesting history: the Key lime. Share this tidbit with the sea-faring mates at your house: To combat the dreaded scurvy that affected sailors long-at-sea in the eighteenth century, the British navy guzzled over one million gallons of lime juice. Imported cheaply from the English colony of Jamaica, the sailors would often drink their required ration of lime

Edible Landscaping Part Two: Should You Really Be Eating Those Flowers?  

Edible flowers have become so common that I can now buy them in little plastic clamshell containers at the local grocery store. Many restaurants feature them on their menus and bakeries adorn cakes with them. They are not the source of curiosity that they used to be. But are they as safe as we assume them to be? Most of us already know that not all flowers are edible. But not all edible flowers are truly fit for human consumption. To be on the safe side, you should eat flowers only when you are

Kids and Food Choices: What Would They Choose?  

The girls wiped their dripping chins on their arms, smiling up at me with a sparkle in their eyes that came from much more than the juicy peaches I had just peeled and sliced for them. From much more than the bananas that the youngest always asked for. Just the sheer exuberance that emanated from this small group of friends served to remind me of the ever-rejuvenating force of childhood energy - energy that we adults may find so exhausting or frustrating at times. Yet it's that same energy that

A Cool Glass of Iced Tea from the Slow Cooker  

There is nothing quite like a cool glass of iced tea to refresh you on a warm summer day. As June is National Iced Tea month, I thought I might share an easy technique to brew up a huge amount of tea in the slow cooker that you can use the whole summer long! Iced tea was a staple of my childhood; my mother always had a big jug of sun tea going on the back patio. I am not sure if she didn't get the proportion right or the sun was never strong enough in that spot (or maybe she didn't want us to ha

Preserving Basil  

Fresh basil is the ultimate "scent of summer." Pungent and slightly sweet, it's the one herb that I simply cannot do without for warm weather cooking. But its lifespan in the garden is limited. As delicate as it is beautiful, the basil plant is the first to be damaged by frost. In Indiana, our anticipated first frost date is October 6th. How can it be that I may only have less than 8 weeks left to enjoy my garden's fresh basil?

Summer's Best Salad  

If there's one entree that defines "the ultimate summer meal" for me, it's my friend Karen's Salmon and Green Bean Salad. When our green beans are ready for harvest, this is the first meal I make with them. My husband and I have this salad at least twice a week during peak green bean season. Its ease of preparation and sensational flavor make it a favorite. Just add a loaf of crusty bread and a glass of Pinot Grigio for a summer meal that's perfect patio or picnic fare.

Mint: One Man's Weed Is Another Man's Mojito  

Mint might be misunderstood. On one hand, it is an invasive weed that stubbornly grows in the yards of even the most black-thumbed gardeners and threatens to take over the herb gardens of the green thumbed. On the other hand, it's a potent and diverse herb that brings refreshing flavor to everything from tea to salads. Much more than an electric green jelly to accompany leg of lamb, mint has many delicious culinary uses such that even the black thumbed gardener might find inspiration from this a

Casting About For Dinner  

Ever since Huck Finn first cast a line into the waters of Mark Twain's novel, summer fishing has seemed to be the birthright of every American boy. Pants rolled up, fishing line attached to the end of a stick; sitting on a river bank waiting for a bite was a by-gone era's Game Boy, a way for idle boys to pass the time on lazy summer days. Today, those boys who fished on a pond became men who still fish--now in rivers, lakes, and oceans. Those fishing men had daughters and found that girls could

Happy Fill-In-the-Blank Day!  

With all the yummy, albeit obscure, fun food holidays that are approaching, it's so hard to celebrate just one. What's a girl to do on days like today, when it's National Milk Chocolate Day AND National Hamburger Day? Dive herself right into a milk chocolate hamburger? Hmm, that sounds tempting, actually. But it can be a little hard to keep up with. It's like a food-recognition frenzy. I have to say, all the bases are covered, ranging from lasagna day, cheesecake day, raspberry cake day, raspb

Summer Spritzers  

I thought I would share some of my favorite summer drink recipes with you this week. I'm not much of a fan of the super-alcohol style drinks (read single malt scotch and the like). My self-designed mixed drinks tend to be fruity and sweet without being syrupy or cloying. In fact, for those of you watching your carb belts, I substitute diet lemon lime or ginger ale soda in place of regular in my own drinks. I don't have a huge stock of liquor on hand, but I do keep several staples around for mixi

Relief For The Pressure Cooker  

I am a human pressure cooker. I mean literally, when I am under pressure or stress, what do I do? I cook. Some people do yoga, others golf, I cook. I do other forms of stress relief, for sure: run, road rage, drink a bottle of Cabernet by myself, but at the end of the day, as I am tearing my hair out, I usually ask myself, what would I rather be doing? The answer is always that I would rather be, well, cooking.

Cooking From The Cupboard  

We've all been there: it's a Wednesday night and you don't get home until 9:30pm from the gym, a charity meeting, PTA, fill in the blank. All you know is McDonald's is not looking like the healthiest option. But you will need to put something in your hollow stomach before the head hits the pillow. So what does that leave you? The answer lies in whatever is lurking in your cupboard or refrigerator. When I think of the standard state of my fridge I can picture door shelves full of hot sauces, so

Kale By Any Other Name  

There exists a real and logical reason why, at a recent dinner party, I out-ed myself as something of an expert on black kale. After all, I can't remember the last time someone found such information to be cool party banter. In fact, the woman who brought up the topic had not been talking to me at all (making my butting in all the worse and my credibility on the subject a bit suspect). Feeling a tad embarrassed and not wanting to come off as too much of a know-it-all (even though I clearly alrea

A Shower Fresh Party  

For some reason I was under the impression that career women these days were waiting until later in life to get married. Judging by the number of weddings I will be attending this summer involving some of my very best, well-educated friends, I am tempted think that this is not the case at all. No matter. While I continue to struggle on with the concept of "dating," it is my pleasure and privilege to celebrate in the happiness of my soon-to-be hitched girlfriends. At least I would be happy, if we

Healthy Homemade Popsicles  

Do you remember the pure joy you felt as a kid when taking the first lick of an ice pop? I'm remembering that feeling as I watch my son eat popsicles this year, and re-living that joy vicariously each time he eats one. Lately we have been experimenting with making all different types of homemade popsicles. Last week I wrote about making homemade ice cream, and next up in my frozen dessert series I wanted to share some ideas for making ice pops at home. Sure, it's easy to buy a box of popsicles

An Herbaceous Garden  

Every year about this time I usually try to plant a small garden on my patio, and every year I fail miserably. But this year is different. Normally I just go about my modest garden with little more than a watering can and a prayer. This year I am determined to get it right, to grow my seedlings of hope into a full-on cornucopia of cooking delights, a bounty to be had with little more than a step out my front door and a pair of kitchen shears. Much to my surprise, so far the little patio garden i

It's the 4th of July and like any good American, you're getting ready to grill some burgers and hot dogs, right? Well, before you make all your cooking plans, consider highlighting the foods that are native to America along with those grilling staples, on this most patriotic of holidays. Many of our favorite summer sides are made with foods that could at one time only be found in North, Central, and South America. Just like at Thanksgiving, foods that America gave the world make their mark on In

What better way to celebrate this Independence Day than the traditional way with a backyard barbecue? Along with fireworks, watermelon, and blueberry pie, one of the great joys of July 4th is the time to kick back, spend some time with your loved ones, and enjoy an open air meal. I have talked about my love of barbecue in some of my other articles. One of my favorite things about barbecue is the sauce - there are just so many different ways to make BBQ sauce that you could come up with a new v

Nothing is a better celebration of warm weather than some smoking hot grilled food eaten outdoors with your close friends or family, preferably with a frosty beverage in hand. While I am not always appreciative of my husband's penchant for the newest in technology or fanciest gadgets, I was thoroughly on board with the purchase of a deluxe gas grill, even though it took up half of our small back patio. Growing up, we used the Weber charcoal kettle, which ba

Blueberries: Summer's Handpicked Bounty  

The berries were clustered together in groups of six, eight and ten; as we reached among the leaves, the previous night's rainstorm's rivulets ran down our arms. Slipping the occasional berry in our mouths, its savory pop released sun-warmed juices that dribbled down our chins as we savored its sweetness. My kids and I were picking fresh blueberries together in a neighbor's backyard. Lately it's been the little things that matter most: the berries we've picked together, the pages we've colored,

Getting In Touch with My Inner German  

This summer, I have had quite a lot of free time on my hands. It's been great to be able to get a lot of writing work done, and catch up on stuff like balancing my checkbook, cleaning my house, and grocery shopping (you know, all the "fun" stuff of life). However, lots of free time also means that I have the ability to spend way too much time on Google. Searching for random stuff. Like sauerbraten. I honestly don't even remember how I found the recipe, but somehow, it entered into my life and I

An Ordinary Man  

The proudest day of his life was the day he became an American citizen. He'd come to America from Poland after the war. He knew some English, a skill which he believed kept him alive in the concentration camp. His brother found him a job in a bakery where he worked double shifts. Not being able to afford an apartment on his small weekly income, he slept on the bakery floor. He met the love of his life but postponed marriage until he was able to get a secure job at a factory and knew he would be

The Perfect Tomato Sandwich  

Once the tomatoes in our garden begin to ripen, I have the same thing for lunch every day - a big tomato sandwich. While the concept of a slice of tomato between two pieces of bread is simple, the options for creating it can be a bit overwhelming. First, there's the bread. White, whole wheat, sourdough, whole grain? Thick or thin slices? Toasted or not toasted? My pick? May the nutrition gurus and my naturopath forgive me, but this is one time where nothing but squishy white thin untoasted slic

The Strawberry Alarm Clock is About to Buzz  

Now is the one time of year when everyone in America can get decent berries. Yes, I know, we can get fresh berries all year round now from places south of the Equator. And that's not a bad thing. And I don't have a particular problem with importing produce from other countries, so long as the produce is grown in an environmentally respectful manner and the people who work at those farms are treated in a humane and respectful manner. But there really is no strawberry like a fresh-picked one.

Minimalist Slow Cooking  

One of the key benefits of the slow cooker is that it allows you to maximize flavors with a minimal expenditure of time. The design of the slow cooker allows you to throw a couple (or a dozen) ingredients in the pot in the morning, and forget about it until dinnertime. Because a lot of the time you are rushing out the door to start your day, simpler recipes work better for a busy weeknight dinner - sometimes just three or four ingredients make the best recipe. Since summer is the time for sim

Do you remember to send that card - and even tuck a gift card (Home Depot, Golfer's Heaven, Baseball Bonanza) inside? That's really w

The Beauty of Compound Butter  

Today, I'd like to talk a bit about butter. Specifically compound butter. Now before you run away in fear, compound butter is far more interesting and far easier to make than its mathematical name implies. It would be just as accurate, for example, to call this "herb and lemon butter" or "chipotle and orange butter." Compound butter is literally butter than has been infused with other seasonings and then used as a very basic sauce on anything from steak to clams, baked potatoes to corn. Before
