Recipe

Jerusalem artichokes are wonderful, knobby, difficult to clean tubers that are easy to find in the northwest this time of year at farmers markets. They are not artichokes (although they taste a bit like artichokes, hence the name and confusion) and they have no particular connection with Jerusalem (Italians called them Girasole, Italian for sunflower, […]

This post is for “Nancy O”, who spied pictures of our Beef Stroganoff on flickr and asked if we’d be posting it soon. It’s certainly a good time for this dish, at least here in Seattle where temperatures have been dipping into the 20s and even the teens. I made this last week when we […]

This is a bit of a follow up post to the gingerbread houses we posted last week. Our 2009 house is an almost accurate rendition of our houseboat. When we finished it and it was sitting on the table, I realized that it looks like a very modern house from the 70′s – I think […]

When I was little, my family went through a gingerbread phase.  I don’t really know how that happened, but we got really into it.  I’ve kind of been into it ever since.  It is a really fun, frustrating, rewarding, sometimes heartbreaking project, and who isn’t looking for more frustration and heartbreak during the holidays?  The fun part […]

My cousin Kathryn called last week looking for Thanksgiving ideas, so this post is for her. I’ll be making these sprouts next Thursday, along with this pie. When I made this last night, we ate it warm, but for thanksgiving I will prepare it a couple hours before dinner and serve it as a room […]

Cauliflower steaks on a cauliflower puree, brussels sprouts with pearl onions and pancetta, and this fantastic duck recipe from Jerry Traunfeld’s Herbfarm Cookbook: crispy sauteed breast meat and roasted leg meat, rubbed with a delicious orange-kissed aromatic […]

It is apple season in Washington.  This year, Washington produced over 5.5 billion pounds of apples.  Billion with a “B”.  That means that millions and millions of apples have been flooding into the farmers’ markets and stores, and dozens and dozens have landed in our kitchen.  The apples that we have in our kitchen did […]

So I know we promised we were done with offal for a while, and we meant to be, but we had some leftover tongue to use up and the sliders we made with it wound up being so good that we had to share. This is a good way to introduce tongue to anybody squeamish […]

If you haven’t gotten enough offal from the sweetbreads and the kidney posts, we have one more for you here. If you have had enough, then I promise this is the last one for a while (until we pull the goat hearts out of the freezer). While tongue (and heart) are technically not offal, a […]
