As I started to write this post I realized that not everyone would be familiar with polenta, or realize that you could actually use it in a cake. Polenta, a ground cornmeal which can be white or yellow in color, has its origins in Italy. This humble “peasant” food has been a staple of Italian […]

Just to make these blueberry muffins even better, I used one of my favorite baking ingredients - sour cream. I love the texture and flavor that it

After such a long and dreary winter, spring seems like even more of a treat this year than usual. Spending time outdoors is nearly impossible to resist. It's a time of renewal.

When you're about to throw some food into a frying pan, you probably want a little oil in the pan, too. But what's the right oil to use?
Flavor, of course, is a consideration. Sometimes you want to add the flavor of the oil to your dish. But sometimes you want the most neutral flavor you can find. Cost is a factor, too. If you're deep-frying a turkey, you probably don't want to use an artis

I used homemade tapenade made with kalamata olives, must
