If you’re in New York you can come!  You can sign up at my class listing through skillshare. I will make you tea, talk animatedly about pretty...

Yellow Food Roundup!

Yellow Food Roundup!

Like red plant foods, yellow plants get their color from the whole gamut of molecules: carotenoids, anthocyanins & betalains. But the backbone of most yellow foods (like with orange foods) has to be the carotenoids. Like their orange siblings, peppers, tomatoes, citrus and carrots that are yellow are usually vibrant, and won’t easily bleed or...
Red Food Roundup!

Red Food Roundup!

I’m jumping into my rainbow themed food odyssey with both feet! To get started, I’ve put together a little survey of fantastic red foods and how to use them (and their color) to your advantage in cooking. My red food roundup is certainly not claiming to contain all red foods (notably missing: beef, tuna and...

Carrot Pie

Carrot Pie

My first pie of spring will be rhubarb custard, but those little rhubarb shoots are taking their sweet time, irrespective of my whining.  Where to look for pie inspiration when relegated to last year’s apples and root vegetables?  I ran across a turn of the century recipe that suggested using carrots to make pie, much...

The new guidelines are meant to do lots of sensible things like increasing the amount of whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables while...
