Recipe: Madrid Salad

by Jane Wangersky August 26th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Madrid stew (cocido madrileño) is traditionally a long-cooking one-pot meal with multiple ingredients, and my challenge was to create a dish based on it that called for only four ingredients -- and that we could stand to eat in the middle of August. It turned out to be easier

Dog Day Cookies

This week it was my job to invent a recipe for National Dog Day, which had the potential to get, um, tasteless, but we won’t go there. Looking around for inspiration, I found some people give parties on this day (August 26th) to raise money for animal welfare groups.

This week our recipes are tied to the theme of National Dog Day. When I first thought about Dog Day, I was leaning toward some sort of hot dog recipe. However, with only our 17 year old daughter, my husband, and I at home, hot dogs aren't a frequent

Tuna Salad with Sweet Pickle Relish

Back to school means sandwiches -- for most students, anyway. In my own schooldays, I never cared for them, and was known to bring in cold egg rolls for lunch. What goes around comes around, and now I have one child who’s only gradually learned to eat sandwiches, and

This week's theme is back to school. Yep, take another peek at the title of the recipe. Bourbon sugar, back to school? Let me explain. The full theme is a back to school party. As a mom of older teens, I have been through the back to school season

Seaside Pasta Salad

Beach parties are kind of like picnics without ants (usually) but with the added risk of dropping your food in the sand. So the perfect beach party food would be guaranteed not to fall -- but I don’t think I can manage to invent it, at least not with

Sweet Corn & Tomato Salad

Through the first half of this summer, I've been to a number of cookouts. The one thing they all have in common is the preponderance of salads. However, most of the salads I've seen are the mayonnaise-coated persuasion- pasta, potato, cole slaw. I understand that these are traditional summer

Fennel Marinated Roasted Peppers

by Jane Wangersky July 29th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Roasted sweet peppers are an old standby with me, but marinated roasted sweet peppers were a new idea. Of course it was an idea I had to try, too.

Ridiculously Easy Stuffed Peppers

Peppers have been on the editorial calendar for weeks, and for most of that time I have pondered how to make peppers into a star ingredient of a dish. It seems that most of the time I use peppers as an accent or condiment when cooking. I have made

Crispy Zucchini Wedges

Remember that dress that might’ve been white and gold or blue and black? I finally understand how it was possible, because the photo that didn’t make the cut for this article looked strangely like dark brown zucchini wedges on a light blue plate, whereas you can see they were

Zucchini-Tomato Sauce

by Elizabeth Skipper July 22nd, 2015| Chef Recipe, Recipes
Here’s a sauce in which zucchini and tomatoes share the limelight. It’s a quickly-cooked sauce, so be sure the tomatoes are well drained or the zucchini will overcook while it’s reducing. I’ve adapted this slightly from Jack Bishop’s book Pasta e Verdura. Don’t omit the heavy cream, and don’t
