Chewy Ginger Cookies

These chewy ginger cookies are really gingery from three kinds of ginger, and you can make them crispy if you bake them longer. They are also apparently great with peanut butter slathered between to make a cookie sandwich. It’s not the holidays until we have some spice cookies around the house. Chewy Ginger Cookies 2 … Continue reading »

Caramel Apple Cider

Nothing says fall like apple cider. I love curling up with a book in my favorite chair with a hot, steamy mug apple cider spiked with homemade caramel and cinnamon. It also makes a great warm drink for holiday parties. Caramel Apple Cider 1 cup apple cider 1 teaspoon caramel sauce 1 cinnamon stick Warm … Continue reading »

Eggplant Caponata

Caponata is an Italian eggplant dip that I love for parties. It’s more healthy than most of my party appetizers and it’s vegetarian, so everyone likes it. This version has some Sicilian flavors (where the cuisine is highly influenced by its proximity to Africa), including some cinnamon, pine nuts, and currants. Red pepper flakes give … Continue reading »

Seared Pork Tenderloin with Grapes

The key to succulent, juicy pork like you get at restaurants is not to overcook it. Most people do. They recently lowered the FDA accepted temperature for pork to 145 degrees, which means it stays juicy and slightly pink. This makes the meat so unctuous and tender, you won’t miss red meat. Invest in a … Continue reading »

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are a favorite around the apartment, and I think this may be the winning recipe. I was planning on giving the whole batch to Gareth to take on his trip this week, and I somehow kept to the plan. But I think I’m going to have to make them again soon, because … Continue reading »

Brandied “Maraschino” Cherries

From time to time, we have Manhattans while hanging around the apartment. We never buy Maraschino cherries though, so they’re never quite right to me. This past Christmas, I was thinking about what I could make and give away. I usually do something chocolate or even cookies, but this year I wanted to do something … Continue reading »

Moroccan Lamb Soup

After more than a week of eating healthy, this soup tasted so great with just a little ground lamb. I’ve started craving carbs, but not meat– until I started smelling this meat cooking. Because it had been a while, the soup was even more satisfying. I don’t cook a lot with all these spices, so … Continue reading »

Tuna Meatballs

These were so good, that they might be the favorite meatballs around the apartment. In the New Year, we’re trying to be a little more healthy, and so….no red meat for a while…or at least as long as we can hold out. The cinnamon gives them a little unusual flavor that’s hard to place but … Continue reading »

Spice Cookies

Spice cookies always say the holidays to me, so of course I had to make some this week. As I watch the Nutcracker on TV and smell the cookies baking, I’m feeling particularly festive. For these cookies, I tend to substitute spices with what I have available so feel free to use something different. Spice … Continue reading »
