I’ve been making these carrot fries for my toddler for awhile now. They’re the perfect way to serve up carrots to little ones because they can grab them with their chubby little paws and gnaw away at the soft, tasty bits. They’re fun for dipping, too, which toddlers loooove. Cumin-Dusted Carrot Fries Cumin-Dusted Carrot Fries

Parmesan Panko Zucchini Fries One of the first restaurants I went to when I moved to California in 1972 was The Kettle in downtown Manhattan Beach. My friend who took me there insisted we order their Zucchini Sticks, because they were fabulous dipped in Ranch Dressing. The Kettle is still there, 39 years later, and guess what? Zucchini Sticks are still on the menu! I suspect their customers would have a fit if they were no longer available. *smile* Parmesan Panko Zucchini Fries
Fig-Swirl Coffeecake I dream of filling my yard with fruit trees. Nevermind that we don't really have the space for them or that we live in New England - I am dead set on making it happen someday. I absolutely love walking outside to pick herbs and veggies to use in my cooking, I can only imagine how cool it'd be to grab a lemon or a lime from my very own tree! That said, the first priority would be a fig tree. While I use things like lemons and limes a lot more, I can actually find them in the store when I need them, and the same definitely cannot be said for figs. They are so elusive around here!

A good recipe is never fully finished, even if it’s tested, printed, and published. Rather than static pieces of history, indelible for generations to come, the most trustworthy formulas still evolve as they change hands. An overabundance of new recipes and effortless access to them through the internet has sadly degraded their value, but each recipe should be considered a living thing, needing care and attention, not to mention an occasional grooming. One mere flicker of an idea is all it takes to start the wheels rolling, and in my case where the process often stalls. Idea overflow is a common, but happy problem to deal with, so flavor combinations or concepts are initially filed away into little text documents, sprinkled across two hard drives. If they survive long enough to be found again, and still resonate, only then do they have a fighting chance of being born. Stuffed; Never Stuffy Stuffed; Never Stuffy
Flatbread Recipe: Norwegian Potato Lefse Recipes from The Kitchn Flatbread Recipe: Norwegian Potato Lefse Recipes from The Kitchn But my interest in my culinary heritage has been growing over the past few years, helped along in no small part by a growing global interest in Nordic cuisine. Every church and community cookbook I've inherited has scores of these "Old World" recipes, and without fail, several of them are for lefse. The most quintessential way to eat lefse is to spread it with sweet butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and then roll it up. This is makes an afternoon snack of surpassing quality.
Recipe: Zucchini with Yogurt-Dill Sauce Recipes from The Kitchn Usually, when you offer to snap a photo of fellow tourists, the exchange is quick and polite and you forget each other long before you ever return home. But this time was different. This time I came home with a recipe. This is Helen and her husband Blago, a self-proclaimed "Wild Bulgarian" whom I met on the shores of Vancouver, BC, this summer. As one might expect of someone who introduces himself as a Wild Bulgarian, Blago was quite the character. From the moment we met to our heartfelt goodbyes 40 minutes later, he had no shortage of advice and opinion to share, whether on the subject of healthy fats ("olive oil is king") or posing for photographs.

It's a bit different every time I make it. You don't need fancy oil or vinegar. Just vary it a bit every time so that you don't get sick of the flavor. Don't add salt to the dressing. Instead, sprinkle coarse salt on the greens when you toss them with the dressing (use your hands). I usually do 2 parts extra virgin olive oil to 1 part vinegar. mama, why do you always lose your keys? mama, why do you always lose your keys?

We had a housewarming party last weekend, and decided to start the party at 8 p.m. Lots of drinks were on the menu, and you know what happens when folks stay late and drink: they want to eat. So while we weren't serving dinner, we knew we'd need to have a bunch of heavier snacks to sustain everyone through the night. Surprisingly, we had far more fun planning the food for this snack-heavy party than we have with many of our smaller dinner parties. A Snack-Heavy Gathering: 10 Simple, Satisfying Recipes
