Fettucini alla Norma

Fettucini alla Norma

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

To celebrate National Pasta Day (October 17), I wanted to make sure you knew how to make fresh pasta. I asked Sheila (from the infamously delicious The Market Restaurant in Gloucester, Massachusetts) to share some of her pasta-making expertise with a classic: hand-cut fettuccine. Take a bag to a friend this weekend. And come back

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

A Food Gift Love Dinner with Brooklyn Brewery and Maggie Battista

I’m thrilled because… guess what… I’ve turned in my manuscript for my cookbook, Food Gift Love. I’m elated and feel a lightness that is incomparable to anything except, perhaps, that end-of-the-semester moment in college when you finish all your exams, only better. It’s like my nights and weekends and very early mornings and that time

Travel Bite: Berkshires’ Mezze Bistro + Farm Egg on Peas, Favas, and Scapes

In the last few days, I’ve shared some of my favorite makers and a killer coffeehouse in western Massachusetts’ the Berkshires. Now I’d like to tell you about a lovely spot for a one-of-a-kind dinner, as well as a recipe for you to try at home. It’s no secret that I love to share food. You see,

You’ve already read about a few of my favorite stops in the Berkshires, but I’m back to share a coffee shop after my own heart, as well as an amazing recipe for affogato, an Italian dessert that “drowns” ice cream in espresso. My love letter to coffee usually begins the same way: “I never felt

Travel Bite: A Food-Lover’s Tour of The Berkshires

You never know what you might find if you just keep driving. This was one of my mother’s favorite lessons, which always resulted in long hours spent exploring back roads in our beastly tan minivan. Every time she felt a bit restless, we set out on a great adventure in search of the perfect steak,

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

I turned in the manuscript for the Food Gift Love cookbook last week. Oh my, I want to tell you all about it — the chapters, the recipes, all the feelings behind finally finishing 60,000+ words — but I’m going to reserve an entire story just to share. For now, I’m getting back out there

What We’re Loving: Pancakes

What We’re Loving: Pancakes

Pancakes are magic. They mean home and comfort and lazy mornings and mickey-mouse shaped stacks, ready for gobbling. My favorite Sundays were those my father declared as Breakfast-for-Dinner days; which, of course, meant pancakes. So when I heard September 26 was National Pancake Day? Well, that warrants some celebration, and some of the most funky,

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 –

Miso Beef with Soba Noodles & Crispy Kale Chips

Let’s not jump into pumpkins and butternuts just yet. Let’s ease into this autumn thing. September is about crossover dishes – a little bit summer with a hint or two of fall. This dish is the perfect balance of both seasons. And wrapped up on their own, the kale chips would make a great lunchtime

Earl Grey & Gin Cured Salmon Appetizer Toasts

Earl Grey & Gin Cured Salmon Appetizer Toasts Recipe

I first found smoked fish when living in Manhattan; every Jewish-style deli worth its weight offered a great option. Smoked mussels were popular at my Maine wedding. And now, I generally only eat smoked salmon during layovers at London’s Heathrow Airport when I treat myself to a little fish and a lot of wine during

Interview: Two Hands Cafe in New York City

There’s been some buzz about a little Australian cafe in New York City, sandwiched right between Little Italy and Chinatown – talk about international! The talk stems from excellent coffee, munch-able snacks, a gorgeous location, and the love and dedication of the two Sydney-born owners, Giles Russell and Henry Roberts. Luckily Josephine, a recent NYC

What We’re Loving: Grilled Cheese

Did you know that the nation just celebrated a major holiday? Did you participate? Perhaps with some cheddar, or gruyere, for the more exotic? For those who have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, it was National Grilled Cheese Day yesterday! It may seem a little silly that such a simple thing has its

Sweet Loren Cookies: Interview and Giveaway

Sometimes, you need a cookie asap. If I can’t be bothered to mix up a batch, I break a few Sweet Loren‘s Chocolate Chunk cookies onto a baking sheet and bake. I know that sounds crazy but, oh my goodness, these cookies are perfect for an instant fix. They’re all natural with no refined sugars
