Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

It strikes me as a desperate and last minute, the marketing of myriad packaged pumpkin products. It’s been a common complaint in the atmosphere this year; the glut of boxed and bottled items on the shelves of our grocery stores. Of course pumpkin flavor is really that of warm spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice. Real,…

Baked Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Wontons

Baked Sweet Potato and Goat Cheese Wontons

I have had two sweet potatoes from last week’s farmer’s market sitting on my counter for days. They’re a gorgeous pair, with a deep, rich coral color. They’ve been taunting me for a week, daring me to bake them with butter, cinnamon and mini marshmallows. I held strong though. I had big plans for these…

Spinach Bacon Artichoke Dip

Spinach Bacon Artichoke Dip

A notice would go home for make-up picture day sometime in late September. It was sent before picture day itself had even been mentioned or occurred. This piece of paper, like all dittos, would get crumpled up and bunched down into my backpack. As the dreaded day drew near I would become worried. What if…

Fall Farmers' Market-A Photo Story

Fall Farmers’ Market: A Photostory

Recently, I’ve been disconnected. Not in the fun, throw your phone off a cliff and live in a tent in your backyard for a month kind of way, but in a hazy “I’m in a funk” sort of way. I don’t think I am alone in this frame of mind. It’s part of our natural…

Beet Pickled Curried Deviled Eggs

Beet-Pickled Curried Deviled Eggs

I love a good deviled egg. Y’know what? I love a BAD deviled egg. Whether served up all fancy gastropub-style on a piece of slate with artisinal olive oil and microgreens, or picnic-style with entirely too much mayonnaise and horseradish, when it comes to deviling things, I’m 100% on-board. If I could change one thing…

Eggplant Veggie Burgers

Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Swiss Cheese and Shallot Jam

I like veggie burgers. I am not a vegetarian. I like meat and cheese and hot dogs. I know cheese is not a meat. What I really like is steak. And super delicious burgers. Flame broiled burgers, squishy sacks of roadside burgers, juicy and decadent double down burgers. Lamb burgers! I am good with all the burgers….

Nashville Hot Chicken Sliders

Nashville Hot Chicken Sliders

We get a lot of emails from people, pitching ideas for stories for this site. Some are sent by PR people, and their suggestions run the gamut from “mildly interesting” (“Foie Gras and You: Applying Rudimentary Food Ethics to Things That Are Delicious”) to the numbingly boring (“Chef Smorgasbord has written a cookbook called, ‘100…

Hazelnut Brownies with Espresso Mascarpone Cream

Hazelnut Brownies with Espresso Mascarpone Cream

There’s a quiet, leafy corner of New Haven where time stands still. Walk through a wrought iron gate into another world, down Wooster Street and back into a twentieth century America of Italian immigrants and working class families. My family often went there to visit our city cousins to share a few apizzas at Sally’s or Pepe’s, rival parlors…
