REAL GIRLS EAT AVOCADOS
PLUS AN “ABSOLUTELY AVOCADOS”
COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY

Call me gender-biased, but avocados are one of those foods that I lump into a discreet category of good eats I consider “girl food.” I say this based on the four females under my roof who have a love for avocados unmatched by the lone male. Sure Mr. Mom’s Kitchen can take down a bowl […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Although I’m a sucker for a good currant-studded soda bread, this Irish Brown Bread from Cooking Light was the highlight of the week.  Made with whole wheat flour, steel-cut oats, and loads of buttermilk, it’s made in a single bowl with no rising and no yeast to mess with. Toasted with Irish butter and jam? A delicious […]

HOT TIP: HOW TO MAKE A KILLER COMPOSED SALAD

  A salad isn’t  the first dish that springs to mind when I think of family-friendly foods, but if done right, kids can be crazy about them. Chopped salads, built up with crunchy lettuce, diced vegetables, and little extras such as croutons and crumbled bacon go over well in our house.  For main dish eating, […]

RAE DUNN CERAMICS

  Recently I was approached by a dad at the grocery store who enthusiastically waved a handful of tattered pages of paper toward me: recipes from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook, printed out by his wife who’d sent him to the market to gather ingredients. He thanked me for the recipes. I’m the one who feels thankful, […]

The weather has turned chilly here, which makes me want to stay warm at the stove now more than ever.  Below are a handful of snapshots of what I got up to…in the kitchen, and out…all taken with my iphone. We hosted a gaggle of family for a casual supper featuring Ina Garten’s most excellent […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD 7

I’ve been especially grateful to be cooking these past few weeks knowing some of you are still without electricity. I hope you are holding up ok and that power will be restored very soon so you can get back behind the stove again. On that note, here’s what My Week in Food looked like, with […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD 2

Here are a few highlights of My Week in Food since last Friday, captured on my iphone. Leftover buttermilk + leftover heavy cream means, what else? A batch of creme fraiche. I’m thinking perfect spooned alongside Ellie Krieger’s Apple Brown Betty right about now. Best, easiest, healthiest, family-favorite pre-dinner nibble? Padron peppers blistered in a […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

I’ve been snapping loads of pictures of what I’m up to in the kitchen with my iphone lately. Thought I’d send you into Saturday with a few images from this past week. I had a Martha Stewart moment one day making after school snack: A whole banana rolled into a peanut butter-smeared slice of whole […]
