Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet

on July 08, 2013, at 8:56 p.m.
If only I could lie on the couch forever, with the windows open, listening to people mowing their lawns and smelling fresh-cut grass as npr announces the state of the stock market.  That would indeed be nice, the epitome of relaxation that is given to a student every once in …

Chicken Galantine

on July 02, 2013, at 9:58 p.m.
Ever since I saw Julie and Julia I wanted to try deboning a chicken.  Today, four years later, I got around to actually doing it.  Maybe it was the lack of sleep over the past few days (we got back from Guatemala at 4:00 Monday morning), maybe it was the …
Grilling seafood can be intimidating but with a few tricks and a little trial and error great results can be had. A grilled salmon and summer salad dish is served at 18 Seaboard in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Reel in a summer meal: Tackle your fear of grilling seafood

By Andrea Weigl, The News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) on July 02, 2013, at 12:40 p.m.
  Grilling fish and seafood can be intimidating. Many of us either overcook the fish or undercook the fish or can’t pry the fish off the grill in one piece. We try special seafood grill baskets and every spatula in our kitchens with little improvement. We end up sacrificing more …

Crunch into some lettuce

By Lisa Abraham, Akron Beacon Journal on June 27, 2013, at 1:55 p.m.
  Lettuce lovers, this is your week. Lettuces of all varieties are coming into season now and you’ll find a wide assortment of salad greens at local farmers markets. In many places, the strawberry crop is still coming in, so combine the two into one recipe for a strawberry salad …
Freshly picked strawberries sit in their quart containers at Tate's Strawberry Farm in East Corinth. Strawberries are considered an effective disease management and health-promoting dietary regimen.

Strawberries: Good for the head, the heart and the taste buds

By Georgia Clark-Albert on June 10, 2013, at 12:59 p.m.
It doesn’t quite make sense that Feb. 27 is National Strawberry Day, June 9 is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day, and June 14 is National Strawberry Shortcake Day. Strawberries are a great fruit to celebrate, but why not celebrate them all on the same day? The strawberry is a member of …

Roasted Rhubarb Prinsesstårta with Cardamom and Almond–Daring Bakers

on May 27, 2013, at 1:27 a.m.
Korena of Korena in the Kitchen was our May Daring Bakers’ host and she delighted us with this beautiful Swedish Prinsesstårta! When I first saw this challenge I must admit I was a little intimidated.  It’s three layers of sponge cake, the layers going: sponge cake, jam, pastry cream, sponge cake, pastry …

Dandelion Greens with Balsamic Vinegar

on May 22, 2013, at 8:49 p.m.
When I was in seventh grade we spent an inordinate amount of time in school on symbols.  What symbolizes you?  Are you a waterfall?  A crane?  I remember, I chose an otter.  Perhaps that was what I aspired to be in 7th grade, a charismatic, happy-go-lucky sort of person seeing …
In making pretzel bread, turn out risen dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into equal pieces, depending on the shape you desire.

Slash & learn: Pretzel bread elevates any sandwich after a brief baking soda bath

By Kim Ode, Star Tribune (Minneapolis) on May 09, 2013, at 6:18 p.m.
People say beauty is skin-deep like it’s a bad thing. Consider the burnished dermis of pretzel bread, a hot dining trend in the burger world, but also a resurgence of artisan technique. While the innards of a sandwich naturally get the most attention, stacking them inside a strikingly contrasted pretzel …

Banana Caramel Upside-Down Cake

on April 21, 2013, at 10:40 p.m.
So, by my current estimate, in the last week my family drove about 2,400 miles.  Out to Chicago…and back.  It was part two of the college trip saga that has taken up these last two school vacations. Last vacation was Wellesley, Brown, Columbia, Princeton, and Yale. This time was Oberlin, …

Peanut butter and chocolate buckeyes an easy, decadent treat

By Jim Bailey on April 11, 2013, at 4:28 p.m.
These deliciously decadent treats are the perfect for the marriage of peanut butter and chocolate. Although it is not readily agreed who first made buckeyes as they are currently enjoyed, it is known that they are so-called because of their resemblance to the nut of a buckeye tree, found primarily …

Apricots – the early ripeners

By Georgia Clark-Albert on April 08, 2013, at 9:34 a.m.
Fresh apricots don’t stay around very long, so get them while you can. The future of most apricots is to either be canned or dried. About 13 percent of all U.S. apricots are sold fresh, 23 percent are used for canning and juicing, and 57 percent are usually dried, according …
Peeps are marshmallow candies that are shaped into chicks, bunnies and other animals.

Homemade ‘peeps’? These chicks rule

By Noelle Carter, Los Angeles Times on March 29, 2013, at 11:37 a.m.
Maybe they slowly grew on me. Or maybe it was the sheer sugar rush — from testing close to 75 dozen chicks — but I’ll admit it. I’ve grown fond of Peeps. For most of us, an Easter basket simply isn’t complete without a box of Peeps. The colorful marshmallow …

Triple-Coconut Muffins

on March 23, 2013, at 2:38 p.m.
Weird.  It’s the only word I can come up with to describe this week.  Monday, well, Monday we moved in.  I went to bed in a room with boxes stacked up to the ceiling.  Tuesday we had an entirely unexpected snow day.  Wednesday…we had another snow day.  Then, after our …

Moroccan Chickpea and Carrot Salad + Announcements

on March 10, 2013, at 9 p.m.
For the last eight years I’ve lived in the attic.  There’s a lot you can do in a finished attic.  For example, when I first moved in, my little brothers and I used to pretend to be superheroes, dress up in capes and jump around on the furniture and into …
These ready-made dishes tucked safely away in the freezer can become lifesavers during the weekday crunch and when hosting unexpected overnight guests. Pictured, artichoke stuffed shells.

Ready-made by you: Fix it, freeze it, heat it, eat it

By Sharon K. Ghag, The Modesto Bee on Feb. 14, 2013, at 5:18 p.m.
You can’t make this stuff up. The meat-eater goes to college and falls for a vegetarian. Now he’s extolling the virtues of leafy greens and whole grains. That’s fine, but what to do when he decides to bring his significant other home during break to a house where meals are …

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

on Feb. 10, 2013, at 6:23 p.m.
I might as well say it right off, but if you’re someone who would tell me your favorite cake flavor is red velvet, well, I’d instantly label you as “one of those people.”  Red velvet cake is nice and all, but really, there’s no flavor.  Either go deep, dark, complex …

Spicy Caramel Coconut Popcorn

on Feb. 03, 2013, at 6:12 p.m.
The Super Bowl is coming up soon right?  Next week is it?  Oh, not next week, so sorry I missed it….Oh!  It’s today!  That’s interesting. I only realized the Super Bowl was this weekend yesterday.  My mom had thought it was last weekend.  Yeah, you guessed it, I’m not a …

Black Pearl Chocolate Cake

on Jan. 28, 2013, at 2:33 p.m.
The relationship between food and my family bears mention; it’s the best way for you to understand this cake and my happiness about it. When my little brother Gabe was two, he was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Up until that point he’d gone from eating bread and pasta to a …
