When I posted a round-up of the recipes I actually make on a fairly frequent basis I totally forgot to include this chili. I’m not really the type of person who thinks you can only eat pumpkin between the months of October through January so I’ve been known to whip up a batch of this […]

Note: This recipe and accompanying text originally appeared  as a guest post on Eat Boutique. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I flipped through Sophie Dahl’s new cookbook, Very Fond of Food, admired the pictures tremendously, and even made a delightful recipe without having a clue as to who she was.

I bet you thought I was fickle and that the love affair with my bread machine wouldn’t last. Well ye of little faith take notice, I haven’t stopped baking bread in this fantastic contraption since I first posted about it back in December.

CK Cooks: Homemade Applesauce

August 7, 2008

One of the things Erin and I have enjoyed the most over the last few months has been the weekly deliveries from Boston Organics. Unfortunately, we found ourselves neglecting the occasional apple thrown in the bin with the rest of the delicious fruits and veggies. Of course, an apple here, and an apple there, and […]
