I’m absolutely astounded at the amount of gorgeous fresh produce that I was able to purchase yesterday at the Copley Square Farmers Market for less than $20. Yes, I still had 25 cents to spare after my vegetable shopping spree that included rainbow carrots and ruby red beets from Atlas Farm, summer squash and zucchini, […]

Slamming Butternut Chilijack

August 13, 2008

All it does in Boston lately is rain every single day so this spicy and hearty recipe felt very fall and yet still appropriate when we made it. In his new cookbook, Food 2.0, the brilliant Charlie Ayers, former executive chef at Google, proclaimed that this dish was “slamming.” And oh how it lived up […]

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 […]

Miss Mary’s Orzo Salad

June 17, 2008

For the most part, new Food Network hostess Mary Nolan has gone unnoticed and unheralded since her episodes began airing this summer.

Vegetable Cheddar Soup

April 16, 2008

When I lived in Portland all by my little old self after college I used to make this very soup in a hand me down pot that I acquired from my mom. Speaking of the old neighborhood, some crazy fool tried to burn it down last week. I’m trying to comfort myself with the fact that […]

Baked Sweet Potato Latkes

March 9, 2008

My love of potatoes knows no bounds. I’m especially fond of breakfast potatoes. This morning when I woke up and started rummaging around in the refrigerator for something to eat on this bright Sunday morning I was instantly drawn to last nights leftover casserole of scalloped potatoes, zucchini, red peppers and ham. “Eat me Erin!

Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

February 14, 2008

Confession time: until I made this creamy risotto dish I’d never purchased or even used a vanilla bean before. I know — total baking blasphemy! Last month, after I read Amanda Hesser’s book, Cooking for Mr. Latte, I really wanted to bake the Vanilla Bean Loaves. Especially since they were based on a recipe from […]
