Recipe: Korean Beef Bowl

By in Food

A “simplified” version of Korean cuisine flavors (lacking kimchi!), but fast, tasty, and providing for several days worth of leftovers.

Recipe: Basic Mac & Cheese

By in Food

This is a very traditional, no-frills take on mac and cheese — and it’s served us well — that we’ve been bringing to LUX-giving for several years.

Recipe: Cowboy Caviar

By in Food

A Tex-Mex appetizer dip, closer to pico de gallo than salsa. It’s lactose-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, requires zero cooking, and makes a giant bowlful in less than 20 minutes. Since it’s a dip, it’s forgiving and adaptable to whatever you have on hand (I have canned corn, not frozen corn!) and your taste (don’t want cilantro? use parsley! want to add black olives? go […]

Recipe: Tuscan Gnocchi Skillet

By in Food

Lessons learned from this one: (1) Gnocchi can be pan-fried, instead of boiled, and (2) field greens can stand in for baby spinach, in a pinch, but aren’t quite as good. Anything advertised as a “30-minute meal” always takes me longer, so I’ve listed this as a “45-minute meal” — your results may vary, depending on […]

Recipe: Chicken & Herb Dumplings

By in Food

Adam’s a big fan of potpies, so during my cookbook-buying spree in the early 2000s I picked up Potpies: Yumminess in a Dish by Elinor Klivans. Trained in France, and known primarily for her pastry recipes (she’s got entire books dedicated solely to chocolate chips and donuts) Klivans has had a long and varied career as a […]

Gettin’ Baked

By in Food, Products

It’s tough to photograph food that you desperately want to eat. It’s even worse to photograph food that other people really want to eat. For both reasons it’s difficult to photograph anything we’ve ever made out of the Baked cookbooks. Adam saw the original, Baked, on the shelf at Borders and bought it on a […]

Eventful day is eventful

By in Food, Roundups

You know those days where you just can’t believe how much happened within 24 hours? The morning and afternoon were spent working on the HF-L Alumni Art book (with last-minute assistance from Katie who was a huge help), but then Adam and I made cookies and, with the rest of MAMA’s House, joined 10 other […]

Recipe: A Stew of Staples

By in Food

Since we returned from Comic-Con, the number one most annoying thing about our apartment is not my refusal to unpack, not the hours of “So You Think You Can Dance” taking up space on the DVR, and not our landlord’s inability to give us our new lease to sign. No, it’s the complete lack of […]

Cheap Eats

By in Food, Rochester, Work

Ever eat at restaurants? Don’t want to spend a ton? Sick of always ending up the same places? Answering yes to any or all of these are cause to check out CITY’s first-ever round-up of places to eat on the cheap. It’s divided up by type of cuisine (including breakfast — my favorite!), and includes […]

Recipe: Soup for spring

By in Food, TV

Adam and I watched the first two episodes of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution the other night, and were both intrigued and repulsed. The family whose freezer was top-to-bottom filled with frozen pizza and nothing else? The fact that American school lunches are required to have two starches? Kids not knowing what a tomato is? Scary […]
