A lot has changed in the Washington wine industry in the past five years.
The trouble with the holiday season is the baking guilt.
Fresh parsley and pine nuts top quickly broiled grouper. Hot, spicy peanuts add a crunchy kick to 10-minute brown rice and broccoli for this 15-minute dinner.
I was a happy little butterball when I was a kid. Sweets were my thing, desserts in particular. And chocolate desserts most of all. The one exception to the rule? My grandmother’s oatmeal cookies.
It had been a busy weekend of cooking. So busy that by the time Monday night rolled around, I wanted something easy for a post-work dinner.
Better Homes and Gardens has a book filled with easy recipes for diabetics or someone who cooks for a diabetic.
Let’s all stop being coy and fess up, shall we? The truth is, even those of us who work with cookbooks, write about cookbooks, collect cookbooks — heck, even write cookbooks ourselves — don’t actually cook from cookbooks. At least not nearly as frequently as we’d like to/promise ourselves we will/tell others we do.
In Kentucky, stack cakes are common, but few people are familiar with stack pies.
Holidays aren't always cheerful, merry or bright. They are sometimes humbling.
You know the type: She/he already has a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, 65 corkscrews, a dozen too-cute wine posters ("Wine a little; you'll feel better") and subscriptions to wine mags from seven continents. So what do you get him/her for Christmas?
Celery is such a common ingredient that it's easy to overlook its bulbous cousin, celeriac, often called celery root. Its odd, gnarly shape hides delicately sweet and nutty flesh
What is your favorite recipe from the iconic Pillsbury Bake-Off? Mine might be Orange Kiss Me Cake (1950) or possibly Peanut Butter Blossom cookies (1958).
The wave of products with "simple" or "simply" in their names rolls on, now producing an entry from Unilever, the folks who make the tubs of butter-substitute Shedd's Spread Country Crock. It's Country Crock Simply Delicious, with "no artificial preservatives or partially hydrogenated oils." It also contains a little yogurt, which none of the other Country Crock varieties do.
Wine of the Week: The 2010 Venus la Universal Montsant tinto 'Dido' is elegant and balanced, with a lush finish.
Dear SOS: My husband and I visited friends outside Driggs, Idaho. There is an amazing family-owned bakery in Driggs with wonderful Austrian pastries. I would love to have the recipe for its morning glory muffins. They were not only delicious, but they also gave me great energy during our travels. I hope you can help.
