Rib of the Week: Cranberry Sage Pork Ribs with Whiskey Butter

There's nothing like coating something in butter. I know it's not the healthiest thing in the world, but man, is it good. For this dish, meaty, country-style pork ribs get frosted with a pungent whiskey...

A Photo Tour: Apple Picking at Brooksby Farm

I have a peck and a half of apples sitting on my kitchen counter. There are Macouns. Red Delicious. Courtlands. I know I'll probably make some kind of pie or rustic tart, but I'll...

Rustic Apple Galette

This may be the shortest intro in Hungry Mouse history. We're out the door in a few minutes on our way to a party, but here's what we're bringing. A galette is basically a rustic...

Brown-Sugar Cranberry Sauce

  Ever since I was a kid, cranberry sauce has always been one of my favorite things about the fall. Most of the time, my mom made homemade cranberry sauce. Now, she's an amazing cook. Sometimes, though, if...

Sweet & Sunny Lemon Drop Liquor

Apparently, this weekend is cocktail weekend. Contrary to yesterday's Bee's Kiss, though, my Lemon Drop liquor is light and refreshing. It's a great late-summer-lazy-day-sitting-in-the-yard-waiting-for-the-barbecue-to-be-done kind of drink. If you start a bottle early this week,...

Coconut Cake for Old Man Richard

The first time I made this cake, we were up visiting an old friend who rents a cottage every summer up in Gloucester, Mass. We spent the greater part of the evening out on the...
