I had a special request for a non-recipe post about how to clean and maintain pots and pans. I started making up a list of different tricks for lining pans and how to clean cast iron. Then I started thinking about the different kinds of cookware, as each one has slightly different cleaning needs. Then

Here’s yet another treasure from one of my old cookbooks. This one is brought to you by the 1913 publication, Household Discoveries and Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book. 1, 2, 3, 4 cookies get their name from their ingredient list, which is based around 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour,

I like french fries, but I don’t like how heavy they feel in my stomach after I eat them. If you’re also a fan of potatoes as a side dish, you’ll be pleased to know that they can be just as delicious without all the grease and calories that come from deep frying! These wedges

My friends and I got together one day, back in the fall, and we tried to make chicken burgers. They tasted great, but they just fell apart. This time, we decided to try something different — binding agents. If you ever wondered why egg and bread crumbs were on the ingredient list for meatballs and

I’ve really been into making hummus lately. Buying it in batches at the store, with the amount of it I can eat in a week, gets expensive quickly. Making it at home is way cheaper, even with this recipe, which is the most expensive because of the tapenade. Of the three I’ve made so far,

When you have a finnicky stomach like mine, it’s good to have multiple cures and fixes up your sleeve. I’ve got ginger chews, teas, mental exercises, you name it. Sometimes, though, you need to add something new to your repertoire. That’s where this turmeric millk comes in. It’s a sweet, spiced, hot milk drink that

As delicious as my spicy hummus is, sometimes I need to mix things up a bit. Back when I used to buy hummus, I used to love the roasted red pepper kind. I also really liked olive tapenade hummus, though it was almost impossible to find, which is why I have to figure out my own

Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables, and I wish I could eat them every day. They’re a fun finger food, less work than crab legs, and surprisingly filling. Another bit of good news is that, if you’ve never roasted artichokes at home, it’s not a terribly difficult recipe, though it does take a little

One day, I was sitting down and having lunch at a restaurant with my Poppa, and the waitress came over to take our orders. We both ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato soup. Before the waitress turned and left, Poppa asked her, “do you know what we used to call these
