A Cast Iron Skillet & A Camera I’m an herb collector. My pantry shelves are lined with jars of everything from butcher’s broom and witch hazel to marshmallow root and violet leaf. I buy them in bulk, arguably compulsively. I burn them, drink them, cook with them, bathe in them. Rendezvous Central Square Basic pantry-inspired pasta By now you may have come to identify several of the usual suspects in my kitchen larder: garlic, olives, capers, anchovy, among others. Keeping these items in your pantry means that you will always be able to pull together a delicious, simple little meal. My favorite stand-by pasta dinner includes all of [...] Toasted breadcrumbs One of the staples of my home pantry is actually just a simple by-product from making toast in the morning: the breadcrumbs leftover on the big wooden cutting board.

Three years and a cake It was just about three years ago that we started Green Kitchen Stories. I remember the process we went through to register the domain name. GreenKitchen was already taken. So was OurGreenKitchen. Sticky Lemon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze They are modeled after the classic cinnamon roll, and partially inspired by this bread, with a buttery yeast dough flecked with nutmeg and lemon. But inside each roll is a rich filling of sugar and lemon that bakes into gooey, oozey sweet-tart deliciousness. The cream cheese glaze puts it over the top, with more lemon tartness and not too much sweetness. The final word on them comes from my mother, who looked at me, wide-eyed, over the brunch table, and said, solemnly, "This is the best thing I ever put in my mouth."

- 24 Portuguese Food Blogs You Should Be Reading Photo by Ana of Tapas na Língua blog. Portuguese cuisine is largely unknown outside Portuguese-speaking communities, which is a pity because it is a country with such an incredible culinary culture. Many people probably don’t know this, but Portugal is also a small country brimming with food bloggers. Yes, there are hundreds, if not thousands of food bloggers in the country. And there are plenty rising stars out there too. So because the best next thing to eating food is reading about it, here’s a list of Portuguese food blogs we repeatedly visit and you should bookmark.

Gode Cookery A compilation of medieval recipes from authentic sources adapted for the 21st century kitchen, along with diverse facts on food & feasting in the Middle Ages & Renaissance and other historical culinary items. On the Internet since November 1997 The Gode Cookery Channel on Featuring food, feasts, & music! Red Velvet Black and White Cookies I’ve been feeling pretty nostalgic lately. I’ve been feeling like there are some really awesome recipes living on this blog that might suffer from a bit of neglect. It’s just the neglect of time, really. A few weeks ago I brought my Creamy Pumpkin Pie Bars back to life with the aggressive use of pecans and oat streusel. This week I’m feeling out these Red Velvet Black and White Cookies. I first made these four years ago and I totally think it’s time for a re-do.

How To Make Perfect Brownies I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking. This is the brownie recipe that I’ll use from now on. Blog Index A confession: I've been going through a lot of changes as a person these last few months. Part of it stems from finishing my 5th and 6th books The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living and Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings (out next month and this November). When I signed my first book contract, I had no idea what would happen... would that be it? One book turned into a contract for two more, and then three more for a total of 6. For years my fate was decided.

Life begins at thirty My twitter feed exploded this week with links to Salon's article titled Hipsters on Food Stamps. The article is just sexy enough to be the topic that we are all talking about: hip 30-somethings using their Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (ATM-like cards that serve as the currency for food assistance programs) to purchase rabbit, organic salmon, mint chutney and soy alternatives. The article quotes several individuals who purchase their food from Whole Foods and organic/healthful grocery chains like Rainbow Grocery. As is usual with such debates, we are inundated with slanted opinions and half-truths.

cauliflower-feta fritters with pomegranate I know what you’re thinking; you don’t even need to say it: It’s time for a fritter intervention. A frittervention? Here, I’ll go first: My name is Deb Perelman and I have a fritter problem. And I really do. I pretty much want to fritter all the things, all the time — broccoli, zucchini, apples, parsnips, an Indian medley, leeks (here), and potatoes, potatoes, potatoes, I actually have to hold myself back, and try to evenly space my fritter episodes throughout the year, so not to pique your concern about my fritter consumption.
