Blueberry Cakelettes

This recipe is a happy accident. I was planning on making my Coconut Bomb cookies this afternoon, and realized a little too late that I was out of, well, coconut. I had a container of...

Smoky Corn Chowder

This soup is gloriously rich and bursting with chunks of sweet corn and potato. It gets its smokiness from bacon and chipotle pepper. The pepper's heat is tempered nicely by the creamy broth. If you're...

Labor Day Special: Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

At the risk of needing to rename this blog The Thirsty Mouse, here's my recipe for Bourbon Barbecue Sauce. This is what I'll be putting on my pork ribs this Labor Day weekend. It's quick...

5 Spice Merchants To Try

Recently, The Angry Chef and I went on a spice hunt. We headed out to Penzey's Spices in the sleepy town of Arlington, MA. We've relied on them for spices—first by catalog, then online,...

I've had a lot of requests for this lately when we have a barbecue. The crisp beans are a refreshing balance for smoky, spicy pork ribs or a perfectly charred sirloin. The toasty sesame dressing...

Lemony-Glazed Cream Cheese Cookies

In our house, we make these cookies around Christmas, but they're great year round. They're soft and sweet—and slightly tangy. This recipe is a family heirloom. (I actually called my mother to ask for...

Fiery Tomato Salad

So it finally stopped raining in Boston. While the rain's been bad for just about everyone and everything lately, my veggies have been loving it. I have more peppers and tomatoes than I know...
