Blueberry-Peach Muffins

August 31, 2009

In cartoons there are often those scenes in which a character has the company of a devil and an angel, one on each shoulder. Comedy often ensues when the devil and angel both try to exert power over the individual, each pulling in favor of his or her recommendations. Lately I’ve been feeling a similar […]

Pasta with Italian Sausage, Red Wine and Grapes

August 31, 2009

This weekend the weather abruptly shifted from steamy to crisp with occasional showers. It seemed like an obvious reminder that my summer was coming to an end. Normally I welcome the beginning of fall. It’s one of my favorite – if not my top favorite – seasons. I love picking Macintosh apples at the Orchard, […]

Fromage Friday: Deep Chocolate Brownies with Chevre Swirls

August 28, 2009

Since I returned from Vermont I’ve been a bit obsessed with the idea of including artisan cheeses in chocolate sweets.  Thoughts of chocolate whoopie pies with chevre filling, gorgonzola butter cream, chevre truffles, and of course dark chocolate chevre brownies have been distracting me from work and other more productive aspects of my life. I […]

Eating My Way Through Burlington, VT: Part Three

August 27, 2009

The past few days in Vermont had been great but I was growing impatient for the main attraction: The Vermont Cheesemakers Festival. The morning had finally come and the boyfriend and I made the 15-minute drive from Burlington to Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, VT. The property of the farm itself was beautiful and fit for […]

Eating My Way Through Burlington, VT: Part Two

August 24, 2009

Saturday night my boyfriend and I had the chance to attend a 25th birthday celebration for Vermont Butter & Cheese Company at Shelburne Vineyard in Shelburne, VT.  I’ve been enjoying their products for a couple of years now and appreciate their values so I was honored to be able to celebrate their birthday.  Considering that […]

Eating My Way Through Burlington, VT: Part One

August 23, 2009

Hello blogosphere, I’m currently on vacation in Vermont.   I’m sitting at a coffee shop in Burlington, VT sipping a cup of hot vanilla almond tea, so now seemed as good a time as any to write start writing my travelogue for the trip.  We’ve managed to see and do a lot in our four […]

Low Fat Sweet Corn Ice Cream

August 17, 2009

My waxing poetic about food continues with yet another summer-inspired recipe.   This time the star ingredient is corn.  Being originally from a major corn producing state, corn is inextricably linked with summer for me.  The landscape surrounding my parents’ house is framed by endless rows of lanky corn that transition from pastoral green to pale gold […]

Lamb Lettuce Wraps with Tomato Chutney and Goat Cheese

August 14, 2009

Still no improvements on the camera front although I did get a tremendously unhelpful e-mail from the customer support team at my camera manufacturer. I despise having to call customer service so I may eventually just give up and purchase a memory card reader. It’s too bad because my food has been good lately, real […]

Vegetarian Tequila Berry Salad

August 12, 2009

Time for yet another summery recipe.  Today I had a wild craving for a mayonnaise-based salad.  Some might say that calling this a summer food is a stretch, but in my mind a picnic or BBQ just isn’t complete without some variation on the mayonnaise-based salad.  And because I’m not a big meat eater I’m […]
