Tuesday's dinner was from @YasminFahr on @SeriousRecipes: Pasta w/Shrooms, Pancetta + Greens

It occurs to me that there are a lot of greens in my house. I have a big bag of kale that I picked up at Wegmans two weeks ago (kale keeps forever), two bunches of Swiss chard from my Saturday farmer’s market trip and a bag of mixed greens that I grabbed…

Chicken + Brie paninis mark the return of #paninisunday. #unpopularhashtags

The first Panini Sunday of Autumn 2014 was actually last week. I made a sopressata, genoa salami and fresh mozzarella panini that turned into a greasy, sloppy mess. Worse, there were spots in the meat that got hotter than others, so in those spaces where…

A lunchtime visit to Laci's Lunchbox, Syracuse, N.Y. #cnyfood

NOTE: I visited Laci’s Lunchbox and wrote this piece before going to Laci’s Tapas Bar and writing my piece on Nov. 9. Is it lunch box or lunchbox? I tend to go with the singular word, as if the box’s sole purpose was to carry lunch. But, I think most…

My shot at @MindBodyGreen's Kale-Quinoa Minestrone for #MeatlessMonday

In most parts of the country, autumn is a transitional season where summer slowly transitions into winter. Leaves turn colors, fields are harvested and turned for the next season, and our sleeves get longer. Here in Central New York, autumn lasts about…

#CNYFood: @FarmshedCNY's Winter Farmer's Mkt at @BaltimoreWoods

The Central New York Regional Market is the focal point of area agriculture, but it’s not the only farmer’s market in Syracuse. During the summer, you cannot swing a cat without hitting a market. Downtown Syracuse, Baldwinsville, Skaneateles,…

My grocery list + the important issues of #cnyfood thru the lens of @lacistapasbar

Whether or not I write a full-on review of last night’s dinner at Laci’s Tapas Bar (I’ve written about it in the past), it’s worth noting that restaurant’s importance within the dining fabric of Syracuse. The vast majority of restaurants fail, regardless…

Some steak & eggs for dinner using @JuliasAlbum's concept

Sometimes you want something light for dinner. I’ve cooked with a lot of cream and butter recently, so this week for dinner I wanted to offer some choices that were not as rich or heavy on the stomach. Naturally, steak and eggs came to mind. This…

A #CNY Food Box headed to @AlliHogue from the #315

Some months ago I asked you, dear reader, to help me create a Syracuse centric food box that I could send to my friend Allison in Arkansas. Time passed, Allison went through a job change, summer became fall and at some point, my brain fell out of my head.…

Black Bean Burritos for #MeatlessMonday

Mexican food scares the hell out of white Baby Boomers and I’m not sure why. The Father and The In-Laws would rather eat a bowlful of glass than a taco and for no good reason. Popularly, Mexican food is characterized as being hot, thanks to the mystery…

Grocery List: November 2, 2014. The moral of the story: Always Release The Poison.

My lead-lined stomach has always served me well. It has seen me through 37 years of too much garlic, too much olive oil,  way too much vinegar, far too many meals at McDonalds, and that time when I went to the Indian restaurant and said to the waiter,…
