Discovering: My Life in Food

Food isn’t just something we eat. It’s a shared experience that brings us together. A meal can be the centerpiece of a family holiday celebration or special occasion, or the comfort we seek when we need a little boost. For some people, food has taken on a much larger role in their lives, whether by choice […]

TV Dinner: Chicken and Orzo Frittata

Breakfast for dinner is still hot in the world of food trends but I like that you can enjoy this for dinner and still have great leftovers for breakfast (and lunch if you’re feeling lazy)…

So when my friend (and canning […]

Summer Fest: Easy Tomato Galette

Sure, I love tomato salads, BLTs, and simple, garlicky sauce, but this summer, my favorite way to reach my daily quota is a slice of tomato galette.

Matt Entertains: Fig and Blue Cheese Flatbread

One of the most disappointing things in life is discovering someone with a beautiful fig tree who doesn’t eat figs. I think it’s ok to pass judgment because I used to be that person. Granted, I was 4 years old at the time and refused to eat them, missing out on their subtle, delicate flavor […]

FoodCrafters: Aida Gets Pickling

Pickles are NOT just cucumbers. Just ask Shamus Jones, owner and “executive briner” of Brooklyn Brine, a small-batch artisanal pickle company. He pickles farm-fresh asparagus, carrots, squash, ramps, mushrooms, beets…and yes, some cucumbers…
