Claire Saffitz’ Steak Salad with Shallot Vinaigrette

Claire Saffitz’ Steak Salad with Shallot Vinaigrette

We were serving lunch outdoors this weekend. I was looking for something simple to do. We’d planned a weekend of several different dishes in the “chicken or fish” categories. Cruising through August’s Bon Appetit, I saw a stunning salad.  Beautiful cherry tomatoes, thin slices of […]

A new flour brings great taste back to Gluten-free baking and our Buttermilk Waffles proved it.

A new flour brings great taste back to Gluten-free baking and our Buttermilk Waffles proved it.

If necessity is the Mother of Invention, Chef Einat Mazor’s daughter’s celiac disease is responsible for a truly wonderful break-through in Gluten-Free baking.  The aptly named Extra White Gold Flours were a result of the Georgia-based Mazor’s child’s suffering and her determination to bring the […]

Cumin-Lime Shrimp with Ginger and Garlic Fried Rice

My friend Lorna said she thought I should focus some attention on seafood cookery. She’s convinced that most people don’t have a clue how to move beyond their one recipe for sword fish. Or tuna. Or flounder. That, when confronted with any other fish, they […]

Cinco de Mayo came one day late this year. We celebrated Seis de Mayo with this wonderful soup. It’s one of those soups that makes a meal. Rich, satisfying, and truly filled with the goodness of vegetables and spices for a depth of flavor we […]

Blueberry Maple Granola

Blueberry Maple Granola

I’ve been working on Chewing The Fat’s first book. It’s a compendium of Andrew’s masterful baking.  The very last recipe was for homemade Granola.  The mere thought of it brought back memories of just how good it was.  It was so far superior to any […]

Thick Cut Pork Chops with Mushrooms, Shallots and Spinach

On Chewing The Fat, the recipes really do come from everywhere.  However in this case, it came from closer to home–our own kitchen. I had an intense desire for a Pork Chop and not one of those boneless half inch deals swathed in plastic wrap.  […]

Has anyone ever made a Tart as Christmas-y as this? Cranberry Curd Tart from David Tanis in The New York Times with a deep bow to David Lebovitz

I marvel at Andrew’s passion for baking. And it’s at its zenith at holiday time.  It doesn’t necessarily mean Thanksgiving or Easter or Christmas.. It could be Valentine’s Day or the 4th of July.. But I have to say that this year’s output at Thanksgiving […]
