An Un-Orthodox Greek Easter
About a month ago I was reading Jeffrey Eugenides’ book Middlesex and became a bit enthralled by his descriptions of certain Greek Orthodox customs related to Easter. Even as a Catholic, a religion...


Oh My Sweet!
Sweet potatoes were probably one of the first foods I ever ate. I even remember (at least I think I remember!) little jars of baby food that were pureed sweet potato. It was probably what my mom was feeding...


Pennywise Cooking
The recent economic uncertainty has had many of us watching every dollar that goes in and out of our pockets. One of the biggest and most unavoidable expenditures in any family budget is the cost of food....


An Epic Pizza Failure
In an attempt to try something new this week, I made a cauliflower pizza crust recipe. It’s been posted all over the internet lately and had received a ringing endorsement on an internet pin board. It...


Kitchen Journeys
I have recently returned from a vacation of sorts. Although I don't think that the adventurous three weeks of my journey through China constitute the sort of rest and relaxation that the word "vacation"...


Pages of Possibilities: Cookbooks for Kids
What I love most about cookbooks are the possibilities contained within. The endlessly delicious possibilities. Just the potluck of choices and mouth-watering ideas pulled together in one place is certainly...


Everyone Lubs Pineapple Boats!
Have you ever struggled to get a reservation at one of the finest restaurants in town, then waited patiently for an hour as they "found" you a table? Then, dressed in your Sunday best, you and your dining...


I'm Putting All My Eggs In One Basket
At this time of year, we’re all thinking about eggs. How many eggs will the kids need to dye for the big egg hunt? What kind of baked egg dish can I bring to Easter brunch? Will the Easter bunny be bringing...


Flipping Out For American Flapjacks
I just returned from a family weekend in Massachusetts where my cousin Marc (whom my sister affectionately and accurately calls "The Renaissance Man") prepared a pancake feast for a family of 50. In advance,...


Tongue In PEEP
The signs of spring are all around us. Robins are nesting in the trees, tulips and daffodils are blooming in the garden, and those adorable, tiny, bright yellow marshmallow chicks are sitting on the grocery...


Green and Grains
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! The sun is finally here. After weeks of storms pounding the West Coast, the skies parted, the sun came out, the temperature rose 20 degrees, and the first spring asparagus appeared...


An Easygoing Easter With The Slow Cooker
When it comes to Easter, I have very strong feelings. You see, it has always been my favorite holiday for a bunch of different reasons. When I was a kid, I loved waking up with my siblings and cousins...


Dinner: Impossible?
A few days ago I found myself the unwitting participant in what appeared to be a really bad episode of Top Chef or some other food television contest show. There may have been no cameras filming my furrowed...


A New Twist On Fish And Chips
We’ve all heard that fish is one of the healthiest things to feed our kids. It’s low in fat and calories, and packed with omega 3 fatty acids. Most fish is especially high in the compound DHA, which...


Easter Ham Reconsidered
Ever since I was old enough to remember hunting for Easter eggs, I remember our family's Easter meal was always, every year, ham. Like something out of a Dr. Seuss book, minus the color green, Easter eggs...


Food and Basketball
Food and basketball: what greater meeting of two great pastimes than this weekend when the top four men’s college basketball teams battle it out in San Antonio, home of some of the country’s best Tex-Mex...
