Creamy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

This soup takes a while to make, but very little of that time is actually spent standing over the stove. Chunks of butternut squash, sweet onion, and elephant garlic are slow roasted in the oven...

Rustic Cranberry Bacon Chutney with Rosemary and Port

This stuff is so good, it's evil. It's smokey and sweet. It's dotted with bits of bacon and rosemary. It's bursting with unexpected orange flavor that's followed by a refreshing tartness from the cranberries. I could...

Split Pea Soup with Homemade Pork Stock

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...

Old-Fashioned Pasta Salad

This is one of those recipes that's better the next day. And even better the one after. It's a good base pasta salad recipe, so you can add anything else that you want to it...
