Crab in Cucumber Cups
Continuing with my month of holiday canapés over at PBS, this week I have a tasty one-bite treat that looks way more impressive than the level of effort that actually goes into making them. Made by carving a crisp cucumber cup and filling it with a citrusy crab salad, it’s a nice contrast to the ...
With a name that sounds more like a Mexican fast food joint or a designer drug’s street-name, you’d hardly expect Loco Moco to be a dish that hails from a chain of volcanic islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Born out of the plate-lunch culture that is a pillar of modern Hawaiian cuisine,
Orange Chicken Polpettine
It’s that time of year again and in addition to the excitement, joy, and thankfulness that the holiday season brings, there’s also all those commitments that ultimately leave us feeling anxious. With a few crowd-pleasing canapés (and a lot of booze), office potlucks and family shindigs don’t have
Pork Belly and Preserved Lemon Stew
With six inches of snow on the ground outside, I decided to get stewing season off to a start with an idea I’ve had simmering since I made a batch of preserved meyer lemons last winter. The fermentation brings out an earthy almost meaty flavor while retaining the lemon’s refreshing tartness. I’ve

Sweet Potato Bacon Salad
After 36 Thanksgivings on Earth (many of them involving multiple trial runs), I have to say I’ve had turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and yams in just about every incarnation you could imagine. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Thanksgiving. It’s still my favorite food holiday and I’m enamored with the
Warm Farro and Mushroom Salad
Just because a chill is in the air and our bodies are craving comfort foods doesn’t mean we have to spend hours slaving away over a hot stove. This warm farro salad is a quick fix that’s hearty and filling and yet takes very little time to throw together from a handful of ingredients. Head […] ...
If you’ve ever “accidentally” poured maple syrup on your sausage, or ordered pigs in a blanket at your local greasy spoon, you know the gustatory pleasures where sweet and savory intersect. Like jumping into an ice-cold lake after a stint in the sauna or leaping from a plane with nothing but a ...
Smoked Salmon Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce
Here’s another ridiculously easy weeknight pasta for those nights when you feel like something a little more rich but you don’t feel like giving yourself a coronary. Just how easy is it? Well, let’s just say the recipe would fit in a Tweet… Hit the jump and check out my full post on PBS Food […] ...
Along with Chicken Tikka Masala, Butter Chicken is without a doubt one of the most well known Indian dishes around the world. But unlike Chicken Tikka Masala, which is sometimes claimed as a national dish of the UK, Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani) is decidedly of North Indian provenance. Maybe it’s
