MY WEEK IN FOOD

Started the week off by ferrying this salad with Green Goddess dressing to a Superbowl Party across town. It was all that was needed alongside the killer southern fried chicken my brother cooked up for the occasion. Not something I eat often, but worth every crispy bite. Speaking of classics from the south, I made […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Proof that my people really like their protein, this roast chicken was met like a long lost friend after many veggie-centric meals over here. I salted it generously and refrigerated it for two days, then squeezed (squoze?) the juice of a lemon over the whole thing, doused it liberally with paprika, turmeric, ground coriander, and […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

It was a jam-packed Week in Food with some lovely eats and one exploding egg incident (that, unfortunately, I can’t blame on the kids). Here’s what it all looked like snapped with my iphone. Discovered  the yard where we spent Fourth of July was teeming with wild strawberries as tiny as the tip of your […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Me and My Week in Food were off on a family vacation for a couple of weeks. We’re back to our regularly scheduled postings, with a few photos snapped during our journey.

MY WEEK IN FOOD

An abundance of late-season citrus landed in this simple salad of grapefruit, oranges, and cucumbers. The dressing:  1/2 teaspoon coarse mustard, 1 teaspoon honey, 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, pinch salt. Spent Saturday at a track meet where we opted for a BYO lunch instead of the concession stand: bean salad, […]

GINGERY RHUBARB COMPOTE WITH GRILLED PORK CHOPS

My family hasn’t eaten a hot meal in two years. It’s true. Take these pork chops. As they sizzled on the grill, I cooked up a compote of rhubarb, ginger, garlic, and onions, that turned out so tangy and rosy-hued, it was too good to keep to myself, which set in motion the “mad scramble”: […]

PUMPKIN GINGER MUFFINS

It started out as a perfectly well-intentioned effort to get children into the kitchen. But halfway into my month-long Mom’s Kitchen Handbook Snackdown, a recipe contest for kids, I realized there could be some real upside for yours truly. What better way to get fresh material, free of charge, than to have kids do the […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Here’s what My Week in Food looked like…cooking and eating highlights captured with my iphone.  What did you get up to in the kitchen this week? Last remnants of Easter. Love those colored eggs. Tasked with bringing potatoes to a family celebration for 40, I made enough potato, fennel, Gruyere gratin (oven ready in the […]

A RECIPE CONTEST JUST FOR KIDS:
THE MOM’S KITCHEN HANDBOOK SNACKDOWN

  There are moments when the state of disrepair in the American diet seems too broken to fix. But it’s my concern for our kids that keeps me hopeful and striving to improve the status quo. And I know of no better or more playful way to engage kids around food than getting them to […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Here are a handful of iphone snapshots from the week capturing what I got up to in the kitchen, and out. These showed up on Valentine’s Day courtesy of Mr. Mom’s Kitchen. Who knew a charming set of measuring spoons could make a girl swoon. Happy to find this wholesome salad at the otherwise decadent […]
