    Please continue to read all of this. Yes, there is diatribe at the beginning, but the beverage that results from all this is spectacular. Really, it is.

        “You realize the blog has become unbalanced,” Suzen said. “No.” I answered. I once had a girlfriend who told me to “admit nothing.” I still ended up divorced. “It’s booze and chocolate and brownies and milk chocolate, Brian,” she rebutted. “There are these things called vegetables.

    This recipe is brought to you thanks to the kindness of Sasquatch Books. They sent me a review copy of The Cast Iron Skillet. It sits in my upstate house, buried in snow. Suzen and I haven’t tried to get upstate in three week. We have plenty of snow, and ice, right here in Manhattan.…

      When Suzen tells a group that has come to do a group event at Cooking by the Book that they will be preparing a sweet potato side dish, you can see the frowns on many faces. “Trust me. You haven’t had anything like this,” she reassures her audience. We never have leftovers. Guests, who…

    I first posted this recipe four years ago, and it is one Suzen and I have enjoyed on a regular basis ever since. Now, I know, I have posted several sweet potato recipes recently, all in anticipation of Thanksgiving. Which is very soon. Actually, it’s tomorrow. And if you have yet to settle on a…

    You come in on Sunday afternoon. The snow has been shoveled, the wood stacked. That board pulling away from the side of the house has been nailed back tight. Although the days are getting longer, they are still short. The afternoon shadows are long and cold. On your kitchen counter you encounter some sweet potaotoes.…

    Gnocchi used to be a tad exotic for many of us, something to be enjoyed only in restaurants. But now the dish can easily be found in supermarkets. Those frozen morsels cannot compare with the gems freshly folded in that restaurant you enjoy. And, actually, you can easily make them yourself in your own kitchen.…
