Cooking for One: All by Myself

One day at work, I began preparing for my ritual of the “working lunch” so common in my office. I removed my dish from the microwave and carefully lifted the lid to unleash the heavenly smell of homemade butternut squash soup when I felt like I was being watched. You know that feeling. One of […]

Preserving Vegetables: No Canning Required

Are you just so over everyone talking about canning, attending canning classes, and bragging about their latest pantry addition? Well, not me!

Cooking With Dry Beans

Cooking With Dry Beans

People who know me well have called me a snob about all sorts of things, mostly related to food.  When it comes to beans, I say, “Damn straight.”  Learning to cook with dry beans, instead of canned, has turned me into an unapologetic bean geek.
