This is what happens when popcorn meets the flavors of a Bloody Mary cocktail. The magic is a simple-but-strong spice blend made from tomato, oregano, a bit of citrus, oregano, and celery.
This is the week each year I get asked for vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe ideas, so I thought I'd update my list of favorite recipes and ideas from the archives.
From what I can tell, steaming is a fantastic, under-utilized cooking technique. There are a number of ways to go about steaming - bamboo baskets, plastic microwave steamers (I'm not a fan of heated plastic), and ceramic steamers.
If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates. They take only slightly more effort to make than placing dates unadorned on a plate.
This is a favorite grab-and-go breakfast. You stir a generous spoonful of chia seeds into vanilla-spiked yogurt, and then top everything off with smashed berries, and a bit of something crunchy - toasted nuts or popped quinoa are both great options.
A few favorites for the weekend! -h - Mezcal Sunrise - Climbing the Eye of God - Reading: this, next up this - Turmeric Popcorn - Watching: this Frontline - Watching this never gets old.
I posted a photo to Instagram over the weekend. A snapshot of a catch-all stretch of counter space, where I tend to keep recipe clippings, a journal, receipts, and snacks that I can grab on my way out the door.
Delicata is the lazy cook's winter squash. The sole squash I'm able to square off with in breezy fashion.
Many of you have seen my spice drawer - always in some state of disarray. I also have another area - filled with ingredients I use to make herbal tea blends.
I thought I'd highlight one of the ingredients I reach for most often. Yogurt isn't just for breakfast or a quick snack; it has limitless possibilities.
This is the time of year I find myself drying herbs. In part, it's because I tend to come across special, unusual varietals in the spring and late into summer - caraway thyme, pineapple sage, fresh coriander.
Those of you who have been readers for a stretch know how much I love a homemade travel snack. I went on an intense 48 hour sourcing trip last week and posted a photo to Instagram of the Do-It-Yourself Power Bars I made to take with me.
It might be incredibly hot where you live right now, and, if that's the case, I apologize for posting a soup recipe.
I'll kick this off by saying, this is a roasted potato salad with a secret weapon ingredient. Or, if you prefer, a wild card.
The first time I made this was a year or two back, while visiting my friend Bonni's cabin. It's a riff on the Saffron Honey I included in Near & Far.
I've done a number of these roasted tomato salads over the years, but this is the one I featured in Near & Far.
A lot of you seemed enthusiastic about the No-Bake Energy Bars I posted to the QUITOKEETO site a few weeks back.
I noticed a number of great pesto-centric recipes deep in the 101 Cookbooks archives, and thought it might be helpful to pull a few of them to the forefront.
I'm delivering a list of quenchers today. A quick summer drink round-up to keep you hydrated and full of good ingredients while enjoying the sunshine.
Energy bites aren't a new thing, but if you're a person that grabs commercial power bars regularly, and you're not already on board, give these a try as a DIY alternative.
