I have way too many leftover odds and ends from CK’s birthday last Saturday taking up space in the refrigerator so I’ve spent this week trying very hard to not let them go to waste. On Monday I used oodles of leftover broccoli and cauliflower, formerly intended to be dipped in fondue, to make a pretty delicious […]

Until last week the only type of brittle I’d ever made was my mom’s microwave version. I documented it on this blog in a furious tizzy years ago after I was woken up by the troop of fools who used to shovel snow and hack away at ice in our apartment community at ungodly hours […]

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 […]

I know my limitations. Fortunately, my luxurious Hamptons-residing role model, Ina Garten, has introduced me […]

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 […]

Contessa Chicken Salad

February 17, 2008

Did you eat Miracle Whip when you were a kid? Because I did. A lot. I vividly recall having a conversation with my doctor at one point about what kind of sandwiches I liked to eat. My cute response of Miracle Whip and Cheese on White Bread really didn’t seem to impress him very much. […]

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

February 8, 2008

My addiction to Google Reader has really started to pay off. Last year I won a box of Häagen-Dazs reserve ice cream from Serious Eats. Then, last week I submitted a caption for the weekly “Insert Caption” contest over at Cinematical and picked up a special 10th Anniversary addition of one of my favorite movies, […]
