Peter Reinhart’s Cornbread, again

Peter Reinhart’s Cornbread, again

For my third week of bread, I decided I wanted to try Peter Reinhart’s Cornbread recipe from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice again. I made this as one of my 365 recipes in 2010, but I used the corn frozen and had to bake it much longer […]

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Orange

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Orange

This winter, I took the plunge and ordered a CSA box from a farmer’s market vendor at work. We receive one box per month. I’m enjoying what we get so far. I’m not sure yet if I’ll keep it once summer comes, though. It has […]

Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad

Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad

The other day I made a delicious Butternut Squash, Cranberry, and Sorghum Salad. I’d never used sorghum before, but I had to try it when I saw an inexpensive bag of it at a supermarket a few months ago. I decided to try it when […]

Can you believe it’s already September? With the continued hot weather, I have trouble believing it’s almost the season to make chili and pick apples and bake. I made quite a few recipes this summer that I haven’t had a chance to tell you about. […]

Curried Lentil-Stuffed Squash

Now that the weather has convinced me that it’s fall, I’ve begun making seasonally-appropriate recipes. I’m not generally one for dishes that require presentation. I don’t put effort into how my food looks, as long as it looks tasty, and I’m more likely to make […]

Summer in St. Louis is the pits. For those of you who say “summer doesn’t start until Wednesday,” I present you with St. Louis weather. Our high today was 96; drought conditions are spreading, yet humidity is high; and the next cold front that moves […]

Poblano-Jalapeño Chili

Poblano-Jalapeño Chili

Cooking with peppers is fun. It feels so… exotic and dangerous. I didn’t grow up with particularly spicy food, so I didn’t buy chili peppers to cook with until the past several years. I like spicy food, but just a little bit of spice will […]

Salmon with Spinach Salad and Miso Vinaigrette

Salmon with Spinach Salad and Miso Vinaigrette

This weekend marks at least the 3rd or 4th time this year that St. Louis has had record heat. Who wants to cook anything when it’s 90 degrees outside? For all the cooking I do, I haven’t mastered the art of cold meals. I don’t […]

Garlic Roasted Salmon and Brussels Sprouts

Garlic Roasted Salmon and Brussels Sprouts

Happy Lunar New Year! I wanted to tell you about the dinner I made tonight for it, but I want to have the leftovers before I finish my blog post about it. Instead I’ll tell you about last night’s dinner, which was also very delicious […]

Acorn Squash with Chile-Lime Vinaigrette

Yesterday marked the beginning of my first full week in St. Louis. Although I had hoped that I would be gainfully employed once I moved, I look forward to spending a little of my extra spare time cooking and devoting a little more time to […]
