Picky Fingers: Harvest Fruit Bake Finger Food

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor January 16, 2014

“For those of you struggling with your own mercurial bears, here’s a recipe that has been tried and true through some of Edward’s worst meal aversions. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to leave out some of the “harder” items such as rolled oats or raisins, but overall this recipe works for any of the finger food ages and can be altered at least a dozen ways.”

Unsustainable Morals: How Farming Ruined My Diet

“While my daughters were getting chubby from Eggos, I wanted to impress my fellow vegetarians with what I could do with local produce. It seemed taboo to admit what I fed my family in the privacy of our own kitchen, or that I suspected I wasn’t getting enough protein to fuel my 13-hour workdays.”

So Nice, They Named It Twice: A Wine Trip to Walla Walla

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor November 11, 2013

“It took me till this summer to visit the place people have been recommending for years: Walla Walla, a small town in rural southeast Washington state surrounded by miles of farmland (no, really: it is a four-hour drive to Boise, Seattle, or Portland). After finally making the trek, I can answer honestly: is it worth the long drive? Yes. Is it a town so nice it was worth being named twice (the local saying)? Yes.”

Southern HosPIEtality: Sweet Potato-Praline Pie

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor November 7, 2013

“more than a decade ago, when I was a reporter at a suburban Atlanta newspaper, a profile assigment on a chef and her favorite dessert introduced me to the perfect fall pie: a cross between the old-school Southern staples of sweet potato and pecan/ praline pies. Making it for that year’s round of winter holidays, it was deemed the ultimate pie option—jazzy enough for a special dinner and less custardy than pumpkin, with the twist of crunchy, sugar-drenched pecans on top.”

“Maybe I am getting a bit curmudgeonly, but mostly I want my sushi to be sushi and my burritos to be burritos. Likewise, I am perfectly satisfied with croissants and doughnuts as they have always been.”

Hackensack’s White Manna: A Tradition in More Ways Than One

“I’ll walk half a mile past loading docks and car dealerships just to cozy up to the counter at White Manna (358 River St., Hackensack NJ; 201-342-0914) for a paper plate laden with four sliders and a pile of pickles, plus a cardboard canoe of krinkle-cut fries and a cold Coke on the side.”
