Cooking Oils Demystified

Cooking Oils Demystified

I get great blog post ideas from readers, and because I respect your privacy, I will not say exactly who gave me the idea for this post a long time ago. A friend whose name starts with “C” and rhymes with Marilyn and I have discussed cooking oils and we agree that it can be confusing. […]

Cooking Basics: Mise en Place

Picture this: you’re trying a new and ambitious recipe, there are lots of ingredients required and they are all strewn about your kitchen, you’re sauteing the onion hoping to get the garlic chopped and coriander seeds crushed in time to add them before the onion gets too brown. Oh, and your hair is a mess, you have […]

Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, is just days away. A holiday about food and gratitude is oh so right. If you plan and prepare properly, you’ll be able to add “feeling relaxed” to your list of things for which to be thankful.

Homemade Applesauce is Awesomesauce

I had the pleasure recently of volunteering a morning to work (if you really want to call it that!) at the Ambler Farmer’s Market. My assignment?

21 Ways to Use Fresh Tomatoes

21 Ways to Use Fresh Tomatoes

I have a confession. Although I love eating and growing tomatoes in my summer garden, I’m completely OK with the thought that, until next year, I will not see any more fresh tomatoes stacked up on my wide windowsills or piled precariously in oversized bowls on the counter. In fact, I have already pulled out […]

Oven Dried Cherry Tomatoes

Oven Dried Cherry Tomatoes

Have you noticed a little bit of a tomato theme here lately? I’m knee deep in ’em, people! The cooler weather, particularly the nights dropping down into the 50s, has slowed down the 14 unwieldy plants towering over the Tomato Envy gardens, but I’m still getting tons and tons of cherry tomatoes.

Top 10 Ideas for Preserving Food

Top 10 Ideas for Preserving Food

Eating seasonally and locally means that not everything is available all the time, and we’ve grown accustomed to this in our home. Personally, I have come to enjoy the routine – leafy greens and asparagus in May, cherries and peas in June, blueberries, corn, beans and squash in July, tomatoes, eggplants and peppers in August […]

Compound Butter: Making Butter Better

I have dabbled with growing herbs indoors during the winter, and it works when you want a pinch of this and a pinch of that for a recipe. But now that my garden is pumping out lots of fresh, delicious herbs, it’s time to preserve and use as many of them as possible. Compound butter to […]

Secrets to Fearless Non-Stick Grilling

Secrets to Fearless Non-Stick Grilling

Last year, we became proud parents of a Big Green Egg charcoal cooker. I had been eyeing them up for years, and I was attracted to them because of their versatility – you can grill, roast, and even bake on this bad boy. And, according to their cult-like following, the flavors that come out of […]

Cooking Perfect Basmati Rice

Cooking Perfect Basmati Rice

I have been cooking rice the wrong way my entire adult life. I mean, I knew I  was doing it wrong because the results were not good. My rice would be tender but not fluffy. It was always just a little too mushy, sticky and heavy. I always thought that because rice wasn’t usually the […]
