Egg-free, Gluten-free Almond Cake

My sweet baby is allergic to chicken eggs. We discovered this when she was around nine months old and had an unpleasant reaction when I fed her some hard-cooked egg yolk (I’ll spare you the details). Since then, we have mostly avoided any foods that

Plátanos Maduros

While I married into an Indian family, I also have a bit of Latino blood in me (okay, not actually, but you get my drift here). When I was a junior in high school (oh, it seems so long ago!), I spent a year in

Cooking With the Kiddos

  Lately H has been asking to help me cook dinner, and I decided that it was about time to let her. She is five and a half, and has helped me with measuring ingredients, mixing, and baking, but she hasn’t ever helped cook on

Green Kadoo

I picked up this little beauty at the farmer’s market last week. I love pumpkin (kadoo) just about any way (in pie or custard, curried, roasted, etc.). And there are so many varieties of pumpkin, each with its own flavor, texture, and color.  One year,

Salmon Tinfish

I think it’s about time that I posted a recipe for some Indian food. This dish is one of the first that I learned how to make, and it has become a staple for my family since it is quick and easy to make. It also has just

Porchetta: Pigging Out

Last week we cooked the porchetta we had purchased from our favorite butcher. Amazing! It was flavorful, tender, and delicious. I have to admit, though, that the fantastically crispy pork skin was my favorite part. Crunchy on the outside, with a buttery layer of fat
