What We’re Loving: Healthy Lunches

What We’re Loving: Heavenly Meals that Taste Sinful

If November is the month for pies, December is definitely the month for cookies. When I was growing up, one of the best holiday surprises was finding a cookie plate on our doorstep that had been dropped off by a friend or neighbor. Now that I’m an adult, there is nothing I love more than

Sausages with Carrot & Beet Mash + Ale & Onion Gravy

This is the kind of dish we want to make and eat during the first storm of the season. Read through Sean’s story and recipe. Then, fill your fridge with root vegetables and beer, and your freezer with sausages. You’ll be ready when the mood strikes. -Maggie Although “Bangers and Mash” is a British classic,

Maggie’s Kitchen Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

Maggie’s Memo: Fall Cookbooks and Sunday Lunch

Happy (fall) Monday, I know everyone’s back to work today but I’d love to provide a little distraction by talking food and drink. And since my amazing team — Amy and Kate — expressly asked me to share more frequently — how I can refuse?! — here’s what’s going on in my world: Sunday lunch: I had lunch on Sunday.

Spicy Sesame Greens

Spicy Sesame Greens

We’re slammed with pounds of bitter greens from our local farmer right now, like arugula, chard, kale, mustard greens and more. For me, it’s heavenly and I just love how the bitter flavor plays against whatever it’s paired with, from steak to lemon-zest-flecked pasta to good crusty bread. On the other hand, my husband prefers

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Roasted Pumpkin Soup in Baby Squash Bowls

Let’s just say I’ve fallen for pumpkin this season — not the canned stuff or the latte syrup (though they have their place, no doubt), but instead, I’m cooking every style of gourd and shape of squash imaginable. And now my friend Sean has raised the bar in such an elegant way. I know what

Mushroom Stroganoff Baked Potatoes

Mushroom Stroganoff Stuffed Baked Potatoes

The moment I saw these stuffed baked potatoes from Denise, I suddenly didn’t mind the cold snap or the extra scarf needed to shield myself from the wind. The moment I came in from the cold, I knew I could make these and just go with the season. I’m hosting my own fall supper with

Yesterday Sheila gave a primer on making fresh pasta; today, she shares her favorite pasta sauce to dress it! Run, don’t walk, to the farmer’s market, gather up the last of the tomatoes and eggplant, and settle in for a cozy night of Italian comfort food. -Amy Pasta alla Norma is one of my favorite

We love hearing from Judi and Nicole, because they always dream up such classic yet decadent dishes. This risotto, which is starchy, salty, fatty, and sweet, heralds the arrival of cozy bowls and simmering stove tops – enjoy! – Amy As I write, a dear friend is packing up her whole life here in Portland

Grilled Peach, Corn and Prosecco Mussels

Crossover dishes have my heart this week and this one is just so special. Mussels cuddle up to late summer produce in a sparkling broth that says, “sure, it’s almost soup season but let’s keep the prosecco thing going a little while longer.” Grill up plenty of bread to sop up the pleasing stock –

Picnic Tartines

Four Summer Picnic Tartines Recipes

We love tartines. Even more so, we love tartines made with homemade bread and gorgeous ingredients. Josephine’s petite sandwiches have us ready to whip out the picnic-ware and hit the road. These are perfect for sophisticated alfresco dining or an exceptional lunch, and could easily be a star appetizer. The bread was made by and

All-Purpose Quick Pickle Brine

Let’s be quick about this because you have way better things to do than sit inside pickling over a steaming stove all summer. On Saturday, my darling Italian neighbor gave me peppers, cucumbers and parsley from her garden. My garden is suffering, big time, so I got a little glassy-eyed when she handed me her

6 Questions for Karen Solomon (author, Asian Pickles) and Wasabi Pickled Carrots

I met Karen Solomon on the streets of San Francisco in April 2013. I was waiting for a taxi to the airport when she walked right out of her apartment building. I promise I had no idea it was her apartment building but when I asked if she was the cookbook author, well, I’m certain

What We’re Loving: Avocado

by Rachel Wilson
What We’re Loving: Avocado

I usually try to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but there are some foods for which I’ll make an exception. Until I move back to California and get an avocado tree in my yard, avocado will have to be one of those foods. We always have some on hand these days to feed

Roasted Veggie Tacos and Homemade Tortilla Recipe

If ever there were a time to dine outdoors, with one’s hands, on produce heavy dishes, THIS IS IT. Tacos usually mean meat, but in this case, Casey has conjured up a veggie recipe that is so flavorful, you’ll be too busy tasting all the goodness to miss the… – Amy That time of year
