Spaghetti Pasta Salad

It’s the height of summer. That means quite a few things: Going to the farmers market each week only to find tantalizing produce, not just yarn and honey. It stays light so much longer. Pre-dinner cocktails while sitting on the front porch. Loving and hating the air conditioner. Dresses! I pity men who can’t wear […]

Ramp Pesto

My husband and I have a tradition. Each year, when the weather finally gets warm, the ground begins to thaw, and little streams erupt, letting water trickle over the rocky landscape– we go foraging for ramps. We will go for a hike, and from past experience, we know where they hide. The first one we […]

Rivels (Little Dumplings)

Is everyone out of their turkey-induced haze? Have you all thought of new and exciting ways to eat your Thanksgiving leftovers? Are you hating turkey by now or are you still in love with the bird? They, being magazines, cookbooks, the internet etc. tell you to average one pound of turkey per person for the […]

Penne alla Vodka

Last year my dear friend moved away. And he left me booze, a lot of booze. This friend was not implying anything about my alcohol consumption, it was just that he was moving cross country. You know how grumpy police can be about traveling with open containers, especially over state lines. So when he moved, […]

Noodles not Pasta

I recently taught an autumn pie class, and at the end of the course one of my students gave me a vintage Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook she had picked up at an estate sale. I had told the class that I have a fascination with heirloom cookbooks. The book was her thank you for teaching her […]

Dearths and Gluts

Remember the pathetic growing season I had last year? When I couldn’t get my tomato plants into the ground and had to “grow” them in pots? Then it rained practically all June long, leaving me with a few measly, watery tomatoes. This, my friends, is what I call a serious dearth. Well, this year we […]

Just call me Campbell…

As in the soup, because I made my own cream of mushroom– for a very specific purpose. This week I had my first tuna-noodle casserole. I did not grow up with casseroles. My dad never liked a one-pot meal, and my mom didn’t really care, so I had a childhood free of Durkee French Fried […]

Something Out of Nothing

Sometimes, at the close of a weekend full of errands, dinner with friends, and general busy-ness, the most you can do is tumble onto the couch with the book review section of the New York Times. And then you remember that, oh yes, you have to feed yourself. What to do, what to do? Growing […]

Offaly Good

Innards. It’s what’s for dinnards. Awhile back, when finally coming clean to you all about my, well…diversity of eating habits, I mentioned that offal, delicious though it may be, “doesn’t photograph too well.” I stand corrected. Though it may not be the beautiful girl, with a sparkling smile, and hair so buttery blond she is […]

Frying in the New Year

Did everyone have a pleasant, gluttonous holiday? Good. I don’t know about you, but each year come January, I am so ready to get back to my real life. I am ready to kiss those candy canes goodbye. Ready to extinguish those chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Ready to blow off those powdered sugar […]
