Bread and Butter Pickles

These pickles (recipe hehttp://www.nytimes.com/recipes/12579/Bread-and-Butter-Pickles.htmlre) are SO easy and delicious. They perish quickly, but don’t last long, at least not at our house, so it hasn’t been a problem. I haven’t tried the ketchup and mustard recipes (also included in the article) but am planning to try soon. I do occasionally make my own mayonnaise, which […]

Cream Cheese Herb Spread

Recipe here. This stuff is flat-out delicious. It tastes exactly like Boursin or Alouette. Fantastic with crackers or spread onto your favorite veggies. Also great as a sandwich spread. I add a tiny bit of dried parsley and a bit of celery salt to the specified recipe. It has come to my attention that the […]

Chocolate-Chip Walnut Biscotti

Recipe here.  Obviously, I’m a little obsessed with biscotti lately.  I’ve really enjoyed learning how to make these and am experimenting with as many new recipes as possible.  These are absolutely divine.  Super rich and very flavorful.  I use a small offset spatula to spread the melted chocolate on, rather than dipping, as I find […]

Thanksgiving Cheese Plate

Instructions and recipe for Cranberry Jam here. This was a little bit of trouble, but the bread crisps and jam can be made ahead of time and were absolutely delicious.

Asparagus Pain Perdu

Recipe here. This was FANTASTIC.  I was a little too lazy rushed to make the homemade tomato jam, and used a good quality jarred pasta sauce, instead, but now that tomatoes are in high season, I might give it a try.  This is a great breakfast dish, but would also be fantastic for brunch, lunch […]

Giada’s Sweet Pea Crostini

Recipe here. I made this recently on a lazy afternoon at home, when we had eaten a large, late breakfast and had a nice dinner planned, so we didn’t feel like a full lunch.  It made a perfect light and relatively healthy snack to tide us over until dinner..  The kids even liked it and […]

Artichokes

Yum.  We love artichokes around here and are always so excited when we start to see them in the springtime.  It seems a little early this year, since it’s still unseasonably frigid right now, but we love ’em, so we’re going for it. Stay tuned and I’ll show you how to disembowel these suckers and […]

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

At the risk of overusing an obnoxious “foodie” word, I must say, about this dressing:  nom nom nom. Quite delicious.  A little time-consuming, but worth the effort and the recipe (which can be found here) makes a generous amount.

Garlic

Yeah, yeah…I know that you don’t HAVE to peel garlic before running through a garlic press, but I always do…and this is why: You never know what yuckiness might be hiding underneath that peel until you remove it.  Ewww.
