Honest Weight Food Coop's Kale Caesar — so good! http://www.alexandracooks.com/2017/01/20/honest-weight-food-coops-kale-caesar/
There’s a salad at the Honest Weight Food Coop in Albany I find completely addictive… Yes, you’ve read this opener here before, and I can’t promise this will be the last. (If you’re new here, here’s the first and the second.) I also can’t promise this will be the last kale salad recipe to be posted,...

Here’s a dish to add to your cooking-for-a-crowd repertoire. It’s an adaptation of a long-time favorite butternut squash-sage sauce, which I typically toss with rotini (or other pasta) and serve with parmesan. Here, the par-cooked pasta is tossed with the sauce and a mix of mozzarella and parmesan, then baked in a hot oven until...

Roasted Delicata Squash with Chilies, Lime, and Cilantro: http://www.alexandracooks.com/2016/11/21/roasted-delicata-squash-chilies-lime-cilantro/
Last fall I discovered Tamar Adler’s sweet potato salad with chilies, lime and cilantro. For whatever reason, I mashed it all together, turning it into a sort-of sweet potato guacamole. Recently I’ve been making a salad more true to Tamar’s original recipe using delicata squash in place of the sweet potato, and I find it completely irresistible. The...

I think at this point I’ve posted four variations of this same galette. I can’t help it — to me there is nothing more delicious than the combination of flaky pastry, vanilla- or bourbon-spiked frangipane, and sweet slices of fruit (peach, pluot, tomato). This is a longtime favorite David Lebovitz recipe. The pastry, which is...

A few weeks ago, I mentioned I had received a package of cookies in the mail from some friends who were spreading Dorie Greenspan’s #cookiesandkindness message. The delivery filled me with such joy, I decided to play along, too, but the little ones in my house quickly foiled my plan. Yesterday, I re-initiated my efforts,...

Yesterday I awoke to a 31ºF morning and three children snuggling beside me. As I wriggled out of bed to make the coffee, I wondered if it was maybe time to turn on the heat, then wondered if I remembered how to turn on the heat, then recalled this favorite Dinner: A Love Story post...

If you had asked me a year ago if I would ever consider buying farmed salmon, I would have politely said no while thinking: ABSOLUTELY NOT! I’ve seen too much of the disturbing footage, read too much about the detrimental effects on the environment, etc. But in the past few months, I’ve been buying farmed...

Fall Tabbouleh with Pomegranates, Walnuts, and Apples: http://www.alexandracooks.com/2016/11/30/fall-tabbouleh-apples-walnuts-pomegranates/
Last Thursday morning I made two pies, juiced some lemons, emptied the contents of a few bottles into a bowl and called my contributions to Thanksgiving done. Later that morning, we drove down to my sister’s in Rhinebeck, where we met up with my three parents and kicked off the holiday season. My sister roasted...

My least favorite part about making breaded cutlets is standing at the stovetop frying them. Even with two large pans going, I can never get away with cooking all of the pieces at once. Stovetop frying demands monitoring — adjusting the temperature here and there, replenishing oil as needed. This is why I love the chicken fingers...

My dear friend Katy was in town this week, and we had the best time partaking in very upstate and seasonal activities — eating donuts, drinking hot cider, lunching at Mrs. London’s, marveling at the leaves (and then the snow!) — cooking as much as possible, giggling at Catastrophe, and crying at Brooklyn. We made...

Friends, later today I’m heading off to the Finger Lakes for a bread-baking class. The schedule of the day beginning tomorrow at 8 am is as follows: eat bread and drink coffee, bake bread, eat pizza, bake more bread, leave around 6 pm with lots of bread. Fun, right?! I’ll be sure to keep you...
