Recipes

A soup fanatic like Laura knows that nothing compares to homemade. Here are some of her fav recipes — easy enough for everyday, special enough for guests.
Fall is here!....At least in the Northwest, and I couldn't be happier. It's easily my favorite time of year for many reasons, one of those being soup. Sounds exciting, I know. But if you're a fellow soup fanatic like me, you get it. I'll admit I wasn't always excited about soup...until I started making my own. There is nothing...
Every summer we rent a shore house with our friends, Greg and Christine.  They have twin girls Pax's age, and are just a ton of fun.   There's surfing and beach-going and puzzles and — my absolute favorite part — the food.  Christine is a whiz in the kitchen, and her crabcakes have become legendary in our friend group.  She...
The Mediterranean Diet: Simple, right?  Absolutely!  Keep your shopping list limited to these foods for love, family, and health: Olive oil, fruits, veggies, fish + lean proteins, whole grains, legumes, and a glass of Red Wine!  Amen for that! Health Some follow a strict Mediterranean diet to reduce risks of heart disease; some to lower unhealthy cholesterol and increase healthy cholesterol.  Others follow...
This article was supposed to be about Chex Mix.  Specifically, Mom's Chex Mix . . . the BEST recipe, which, true to my mom, has many little steps she's honed over the years for the perfect recipe.  We wore our favorite comfy loungewear and spent the afternoon baking.  But I've been finding it hard to write this post.  I...
  So....Mike and I are pretty great cooks.  Actually, Mike is downright amazing.  HOWEVER:  Should you ever come to our pad for dinner, you may leave wondering what the hell happened.  More often than not, we'll be running so behind that you'll have to help.  Our kitchen will be a disaster.  Something will have been horribly over-salted, and there's always...
Ok - so the pics are from last year.  However, this is an annual tradition.  R just isn't old enough to realize / remember it yet. We always start with my mom's sourdough cut-out cookie recipe.  She underbakes them a smidge, doesn't roll them quite as thin, and hasn't had to contend with a toddler measuring the flour...consequently, her's...
I've heard it a thousand times, as I'm sure you have too: avoid labeling your kid--labels stick. This goes for anything from labeling them as shy, clumsy, chubby, and, in my case, picky. But since my elder Boy Wonder will undoubtedly be eating chicken tikka masala on a regular basis by the time he can read this (I'm an optimist), and since this is just between you and me, he's a pretty damn picky eater. As such, I'm always looking for new, fun recipes he can help with and will enjoy eating while broadening the spectrum of his excruciatingly limited palate.
There's just so much to love about food blogger Bea, of La Tartine Gourmand. She's a mom.  She's French.  She's traveled the world, writes for the Boston Globe Food section, and comes up with utterly amazing recipes like her Goeey Chocolate Cakes.I know what you are thinking.  Goeey chocolate cakes have been done before.  True.  But this recipe is...
My long-smoldering crush on Jamie Oliver jumped to full flame a few weeks ago when I discovered his iPhone App, Jamie Oliver 20-Minute Meals. . . It is, hands-down, one of the best-ever for busy moms (or should I say mums?) on the run.
There are lots of great reasons to read Smitten Kitchen:  Deb's photos have been called "food porn" by Entertainment Weekly, she has recipes for upscale yet accessible versions of comfort food (think Boozy French Toast that you bake all at once in a pan) and her writing is passionate, self-deprecating and funny.  And now that's she's pregnant, I find...
