Last year for Thanksgiving I followed Julia Child's recipe for épinards à la crème exactly. It was divine and it took maybe 40-45 minutes to make. This year, I opened three bags of frozen chopped spinach, cooked them according to the package directions and drained them well. Melted some… MORE

So much for posting about a different veggie every day!  Oh, well. I'm still cooking, just haven't had the gumption to sit down and write about it. Anyway, here's a recipe to use up any pumpkin you just might happen to have lying around for whatever reason. Photos coming later. Love and… MORE

Again with VegQuest2011.  Tonight I realized too late, and with icy roads, a sick husband, and a non-sleeping toddler, that we had no chicken (or any other animal flesh) in the house.  There was no way in hell I was going out tonight, after a 10-hour plus work-from-home snow day which… MORE

VegQuest 2011 continues with "Spaghetti in the Juice of Several Onions."  Odd name, yummy dish.  The recipe is from a book called "The Classic Pasta Cookbook" by Giuiliano Hazan, son of Marcella Hazan.  It calls for shallots, leeks and red onions cooked (to a practically… MORE

Back to the "cook and eat more veggies" resolution. A couple nights ago I roasted a butternut squash, then put it in the fridge, unsure of what to do with it.   The next night, I made my standard potato soup, mushed up the squash and added it at the end.  It gave the soup an… MORE

Earlier this month, while watching DVDs of "The French Chef," I decided to tackle the souffle.  I'd never had a souffle and had heard horror stories about difficult they are to make, that you have to keep your house silent while they're cooking so they don't "fall,"… MORE

In high school German class we read that the Germans, or some of them anyway, believe that the way you spend New Year's Day is the way you'll spend the rest of the year.  In this hope, they carry large amounts of cash around, eat good food, hang out with loved ones, make sure their houses are… MORE

Got home last night after a trying day at work and an even more trying commute, all ready to to make a cauliflower dish that my cauliflower-hating husband would like.  Just as I was "prepping to prep" the power went out for no apparent reason.  It had been raining all day (thus the… MORE
