Zucchini Oat Bread

Zucchini Oat Bread

Do you know people who consider zucchini bread to be almost as good as eating the vegetable itself? I do. I know people that use this sweet bread as a way to disguise zucchini so their kids will eat it. That’s all ridiculous. Let’s just call zucchini bread what it is: cake. Zucchini bread of course […]

Miso Sweet Corn Soup

Miso Sweet Corn Soup

Maybe it’s because my garden’s tomato harvest hasn’t yet begun to overwhelm me or maybe it’s my tendency to hoard food for winter, but when I saw the recipe in Bon Appetit for this soup, my first thought was, “I need to make big batches for the freezer!” My urgency to make this miso sweet […]

Indian Spiced Meatballs

Indian Spiced Meatballs

One of the things that got me googly-eyed over Mr. President when we met is that he knows how to cook. One of our early dates was Thanksgiving. He cooked the entire meal from start to finish including a butterflied roasted turkey, all the fixings, and a from-scratch apple pie, all served up elegantly in his […]

Maple Semifreddo: A Sophisticated Take on Ice Cream

Maple Semifreddo: A Sophisticated Take on Ice Cream

A while back, I wrote about homemade ice cream and how it’s not just for summer anymore. Well, it’s also not just for people who have an ice cream maker either. I’m a big fan of homemade ice cream for a number of reasons: it’s easy, you can control the ingredients for the best quality […]

What do you do to celebrate your wedding anniversary when when both of you are super-busy and generally not fond of ritual and gift-giving? Well, our 6th wedding anniversary was just last weekend and to celebrate it, we took a few hours one Sunday to take a drive and leaf peep. We ended up at […]

Green Tomato Cake

Green Tomato Cake

This summer, I had the good fortune to make a 2nd appearance at my local farmers market to promote Tomato Envy. My first appearance last year was a great learning experience but it didn’t quite go as I’d hoped. This time though, I was SWAMPED with interested market shoppers asking questions and making a beeline for […]

Spaghetti with Sicilian Pesto

Spaghetti with Sicilian Pesto

There are a few people in my life who never let me down: Mr. President, my parents, Jon Stewart, and Ina Garten. Topping the list of people who do sometimes let me down is Martha Stewart. I dig her, a lot. And, I admire her for all her accomplishments, her marketing and business brilliance and her […]

Master THE Perfect Pie Crust

Master THE Perfect Pie Crust

It’s fruit pie time! PIE! I love it for summer desserts and maybe even the occasional breakfast treat. Pies are so versatile that you can enjoy them with whatever fruit is in season. Believe it or not, pies can also be a very convenient, make-ahead dessert option for summer events and entertaining. But, why does […]

Maple Buttermilk Griddle Cakes

Maple Buttermilk Griddle Cakes

On weekends, I sometimes make a special breakfast that Mr. President and I can linger over while we sip hot cups of smooth French press coffee, listen to music and hang out in the sun room with our four cats – our girls. The Prez says that I make a production out of breakfast, and […]

South Indian Vegetable Curry

South Indian Vegetable Curry

Where Mr. President and I live, April tends to remind you that you’re not quite “out of the woods” just yet when it comes to winter. Some days can feel like they span three entire seasons in less than 24 hours. In the morning, the sparkly frost-coated grass crunches under my feet when I venture […]
