Blue Cheese Risotto with Sautéed Apples and Bacon

December 4, 2012

I’ve been known to get inspiration for recipes in the weirdest places, but I think the story of this recipe takes the cake.  The idea for this recipe came after I washed my iPhone in the washing machine.  Yes, it was as insane and cringe inducing as it sounds.  I was attempting to keep on […]

Chicken with Apple Balsamic Cream Sauce

January 9, 2012

Back in November while at the Foodbuzz Fest I tried for the first time, and consequently fell in love with, Apple Balsamic Vinegar.  Made from apple vinegar and apple juice it had the characteristic depth of balsamic vinegar with the sweetness of apples.  And having been aged for 5 years it was also slightly syrupy […]

Caramel Apple Shortcakes

October 24, 2011

Recently the boyfriend (Yes, I have one and the fuzzy feeling of using that title hasn’t worn off yet.) and I headed up to Indiana to do a day of fall activities. First on the agenda was apple picking at Garwood Orchard. What’s been an annual tradition for me (albeit at different orchards having now […]

A Merlot Tasting Dinner to Celebrate Columbia Crest’s Mobile Site Launch

August 29, 2010

As I mentioned in my last post, it’s not everyday that I get to cook for my family so it was a fluke that I got to cook not just one but to two big meals for my family.  In addition to being selected to cook a meal with Alaska seafood I was also chosen […]

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 […]

Caramel Apple Sticky Buns

October 6, 2009

This weekend I had the pleasure of going apple picking at Smolak Farms with fellow Boston-area food bloggers Elina, Shannon, Lauren, Kerstin, and Nicole.  (You can check out Elina’s recap here.)   In other words, by the time I finally (almost) finished off my apple stash I found myself with 1 1/2 crisper drawers of apples […]

Cider-Braised Pork Chops with Apples

October 3, 2009

My latest CSA share pick up was yet another exciting parcel.  It consisted of a smoked ham steak, pork chops, lamb osso bucco, lamb chops, and lamb shanks.  Lamb happens to be one of my favorite meats so I was overjoyed at the abundance of it and look forward to sharing different preparations of it […]

Apple Date Muffins

October 1, 2009

Among the things I have discovered about myself while working in the city is my lack of self control around a bakery case. In the early morning I find myself taunted by oversized-bagels ready to be toasted and schmeared with cream cheese, crispy croissants that promise molten interiors of chocolate or cheese, and dense scones […]

Tart Crockpot Applesauce

September 28, 2009

Last weekend while I was procrastinating about my coursework for the week (Funny how all my worst habits from college are rearing their ugly head.  Thankfully this week’s class still went pretty well anyhow.) I decided it was time to whip up something special using my fresh produce.  My produce drawers have been out of control […]
