ShareI’m at Jury Duty today, and for some reason I’m not able to post pictures. So check back later for today’s recipe post. In the meantime, some thoughts on baking and glutens. A friend asked me this weekend why the muffins she makes never rise. Without seeing the recipes she’s using, it’s hard to pinpoint, […]

ShareI rarely cook on Saturday. It’s a day of rest (and going out to eat). But I do like to entertain, and I do like snacks that go with wine. It’s a beautiful spring day here in New York, so what better time to grab a bottle of vino, pack a picnic and head to […]

ShareI have a touch of the “Irish flu” today, so naturally I’m craving food that is not way up there on the health-o-meter. Besides, it’s Friday, which means weekend eating is upon us.

ShareI have about a million pounds of ham leftover from Easter Sunday. Thats right folks, we doubled up. Ham for brunch and ham for dinner. Call it miscommunication. While I generally love swine in all forms (bacon, bacon and more bacon), it’s just me and the hubster around here and frankly, I am getting pretty […]

ShareI was just reading a blog post by Mark Bittman, of The New York Times “Minimalist” fame, and thought I’d take a minute to comment, because it speaks directly to the heart of this new venture of mine. While I love me my Barefoot, and think that Giada is lovely and makes very pretty food, […]

ShareThis was my healthy contribution to Easter brunch. Except they were so good, I ate them the day before. Whoops. They are super moist and have a nice orange flavor and spice note. Grate the carrot on the fine side of a box grater. The recipe is for 24 mini muffins, but of course you […]
