More than Just a Warming Winter Vegetable Minestrone

More than Just a Warming Winter Vegetable Minestrone

Just nine miles up the road from my home in CT there is a community of women living in a rambling group home on a tidy street of multi-family residences. There is an American flag fluttering in the stiff wind on a frigid January evening. Residents are veterans in need of support, shelter, services and nourish...

Carrot Cake: A Winter Classic Worth Revisiting

Carrot Cake: A Winter Classic Worth Revisiting

I had forgotten how much I love carrot cake until I tasted the one baked by Chef Genee Habansky, owner of Herbaceous Catering Co. in CT.

Shopping the Shuk in Israel Reveals More than Fresh Fruit

Shopping the Shuk in Israel Reveals More than Fresh Fruit

It never fails. When I visit a family owned farm, an unpretentious winery, a farmers' market or a neighborhood cafe that celebrates local ingredients I ALWAYS taste something that wows me.

Here’s how to Extend the Season with Fried Green Tomatoes

Here’s how to Extend the Season with Fried Green Tomatoes
