Broccoli, Apple and Peanut Soup

October 29, 2009

I’ve already admitted to being a library addict.  I bet you never knew there was such a thing!  I’ve even decided that if I get married someday I would love for it to be in the old wing of the Boston Public Library.  If you’ve visited you’ll understand why.  It’s tremendously beautiful and historic, not […]

Caramel Apple Ice Cream & Happy News

October 27, 2009

Not only is fall one of my favorite seasons, Halloween is also a favorite holiday. Growing up October 31 was always a big deal in my family’s house. When I was in elementary school my parents began the tradition of throwing Halloween parties for my sister and me as well as our friends. The highlight […]

Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Enchiladas with Spicy Pumpkin Sauce

October 27, 2009

I have a confession to make and one I hope won’t get me kicked out of the food blogging community.  I’m not much for pumpkin sweets.  I feel like a bit of a killjoy this time of year when everyone I know seems to be excited about the reappearance of pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pies, pumpkin oats, […]

Meeting Cookbook Authors at the Boston Book Festival

October 25, 2009

The weather in Boston yesterday was wet and blustery so it made for the perfect day for indoor fun.  Coincidentally it happened to also be the day of the first Boston Book Festival.  Being a nerd, this festival immediately appeal to me.  The day featured over 30 events all focused around writing, books, and communication.  I […]

101 Cookbooks’ Roasted Corn Pudding in Acorn Squash

October 19, 2009

As I was planning my meals for the week I realized that although I’ve long been a reader of 101 Cookbooks, I’ve never actually made one of Heidi Swanson’s recipes.  Crazy I know.  There’s only so much time in the world so even though I’m a passionate blog reader I’m not getting to make as […]

Apple Almond Butter Muffins & Apple Sticky Bun Bread Pudding

October 18, 2009

I’m starting to feel seasonally confused.  First June came, but summer didn’t and the month was filled with rainstorms and blustery days.  Now it’s mid-October and our plans to visit a local Renissance festival were literally washed out by snow flurries and unseasonably low temperatures.  Instead the almost wintery temperatures called for a weekend of […]

Spaghetti squash stands in for pasta

October 16, 2009

I have mixed feelings about foods that try to masquerade as a stand in for something else.  For the most part I openly embrace them as long as the resulting creation still packs tons of flavor (though it doesn’t necessarily need to replicate the flavor of the original perfectly).  I love Greek yogurt as a stand-in […]

Two-Potato Latkes and Orange-Balsamic Caramelized Fennel

October 15, 2009

I can’t believe that my vegetable CSA share finishes up at the end of the month. I’ve enjoyed the anticipation of visiting the farmers’ market each Monday unsure of what will look good that week. I’ve loved putting more of my dollars into the local economy and having conversations about how food is grown. On the […]

Homemade Canned Apple Pie Filling

October 12, 2009

Brrr. It’s starting to feel like October in Boston. It was in the 40’s when I woke up this morning and when the alarm went off it took all the willpower I had not to roll over and hide under the duvet. On fall weekends I love sleeping in on mornings like this, but on […]
