It's Johnny Appleseed Day tomorrow, and what better way to mark the occasion than with an enticing apple recipe. Known for his apple-tree planting prowess, and as a prominent conservationist, we think Johnny would approve of a dish that makes the most of every apple you have. Since autumn

I first learned of John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, from a picture on a label -- the label of what, I can’t remember, but I don’t think it was Johnny Appleseed hard cider, which would’ve been kept out of my reach when I was that young. Anyway,

Saturday, September 26th is Johnny Appleseed Day. While that may not be a reason to gather the family for a dinner or decorate your living room with apples, it is a fun day to cook a snack for, especially if you have younger children. When my kids were preschool

Recipe- Slightly Spiked Hami Melon

I might as well tell you right away, this isn’t one of those melons that are spiked with a whole bottle of liquor. People sometimes do that so they can have a “drink” in someplace they’re not supposed to, like at a sports event. Or maybe they just want

Recipe- Melon Salad with a Bite

by TT September 14th, 2015| Recipes, Salads
I love salads. Give me a fruit or vegetable based salad, and I am happy. In fact, I have determined that when my husband travels and my daughter is busy with school and sports, I could make a week of dinners out of lettuce, chicken, and parmesan. Yep, I

I’m going to remember this summer as the year lettuce never got cheap. And it’s not just lettuce. The drought here on the west coast (which seems to be ending in a huge rainstorm as I write this) has affected a lot of the produce. Corn seems to be

We are a little bit more than midway through corn season, so it is time to cook with it. All too soon we'll have to switch to the bags of local corn we've frozen over the summer or, worse, turn to store-bought bags of frozen corn. However, we're still

Long ago, I lived in a place where the least expensive English language magazines were British, and I clipped a recipe much like this from one of them. I wish I could given it credit, but I can’t find its name anywhere on the clipping. However, the author’s name

Recipe- Fresh Peach & Tomato Salad

by TT August 31st, 2015| Recipes, Salads
This week's featured ingredient is the tomato. My favorite roadside stand seems to be overflowing with these beautiful gems. As such summer is my favorite time to work with fresh tomatoes. Once they aren't local, they lose all of their best attributes: color, smell, taste. So, as I bow

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
