Sweet & Sour Brisket - Copy

When this week’s Raw vs. Slow mission was announced, I picked my side in no time. Team Raw is fine for the summer, when there’s lots of farm fresh produce around that doesn’t need any cooking, but in the depths of January, obviously I’m Team Slow. I knew right away that I wanted to make […]

Slowcooker Chicken Tikka Masala

January 2, 2012 Chicken & Turkey

Happy 2012 all! I love January, because even though I don’t believe in New Years resolutions, I love the re-set that comes with the beginning of the year. I also love this time of year in the kitchen; the stress fun of Christmas cookie baking is over and it’s all about warm, delicious comfort food.

 I’ve wanted to make Boeuf Bourguignon ever since I saw Julie & Julia with my Mom back in the summer of 2009. Clearly I wasn’t the only person who had this idea, because when I went to put Mastering the Art of French Cooking on hold at my library, there were about a hundred people […]

Slowcooker Pulled Pork + ‘slaw

September 13, 2010 Beef & Pork

I like to have lots of food to sustain me through 3+ hours of awkward banter between presenters, teary acceptance speeches, and judging January Jones’ fashion choices. For the Emmys this year, Kristine came over (Nicole joined us for dessert, but that […]
