Simple Spinach Salad with Toasted Walnuts & Gorgonzola

So, a handful of years ago, I worked out of my house full-time as a freelance writer and editor. When business was slow, I'd fill in behind the counter at Priscilla's, a little catering/gourmet...

How to Make Stuffed Artichokes

Nom, nom, nom. Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you! I was too busy attacking the artichokes! These artichokes weren't always so delicious. In fact, at one point, they were actually practically attacking me. Don't let this...

Spicy White Pizza with Bacon, Shrimp & Asparagus

For this pizza, you build layers of flavor by quickly sautéing the shrimp in a little bit of bacon fat and freshly cracked black pepper. The bacon adds a subtle smokiness that pairs really well with the asparagus.

Roasted Blue Potato Wedges with Fresh Herbs

This is a really simple recipe. It's a great, easy weeknight alternative to french fries. I tossed the potato wedges with some fresh, minced herbs, garlic, and olive oil, then baked 'em in the oven.

Cauliflower Gratin with Toasted Walnuts

Ginger Sweetie Pie Biscuits

These biscuits are a versatile companion for almost any cold-weather meal. Made with mashed sweet potato, they're moist and fragrant with ginger.

Pasta with Brown Butter & Chanterelles

Chanterelle mushrooms have got such a fantastic flavor—and when you infuse it into melted butter, half a dozen mushrooms goes a long way. This is an elegant and luxurious appetizer for about four, or main course for two.

Tapenade

Tapenade is seriously savory, salty business. Think of it as a kind of pate made with black olives—with some anchovies, capers, and olive oil thrown in for good measure.

Classic Bread & Butter Pickles (No Canning Required!)

This recipe produces classic bread and butter pickles—the kind my mom used to make every summer when I was a little mouse. They're sweet. They're tangy. They have a fabulous crunch. Like my Quick,...

Super Simple French Fries (Crisp & Crunchy in Just One Step)

No soaking? Only one fry? Start the potatoes in cold (yes, cold) oil? Come on. I had to try it. And man, am I glad I did. Hands down, these are the easiest, most delicious fries I've ever made.
