  1. Towards the end of last year I signed up for a weekly food delivery box from Boston Organics. I can order the dogma box and have local, organic produce delivered to me each Friday. I spend the weekend baking one cake/pie/bar/set of muffins and breaking down vegetables for my "weekly meal." I find that by making a set dinner that can be reheated, I eat better after work. This week I made roasted root vegetables (turnips, sweet potatoes, carrots) and chicken thighs in a vermouth, mushroom, thyme cream sauce. I also make time each night before I go to bed to prep breakfast and lunch to bring to work. It only takes about 15 minutes and the rewards are: a slice of apple cake for breakfast; goat cheese, roasted beet, walnut sardine salad for lunch; yogurt with almonds and kiwi for afternoon snack. If you can make the time on Sunday to prep your vegetables and make one baked good for snacking, I think eating well can be painless.

    Stir! Stirring helps to break down the rice and make it creamy. I made this last night: Mushroom Leek Risotto, sans heavy cream, because really, heavy cream has no place in risotto. The rice is creamy enough.
  3. Wow RichardJones and RWood! This weekend I made a kiwi lemongrass icebox pie from Coconut & Lime.
  4. During the snowstorm on Sunday, I made chocolate chip Heath Bar crunch cookies. Just something to warm up the house.

    Latkes - the Topic!

    Hey Pam - I make zucchini and gruyere fritters with shallots - probably my favorite latke of all time.
  6. Friday night I hope to eat a couple zucchini gruyere fritters, but we'll see how that actually comes together. Saturday I'm attending a Hannukah party that is featuring: potato latkes, brisket, carrots, apple sauce, golden beet salad, sauteed red cabbage and donuts. Unfortunately, all of my work holiday parties are next week, so I probably won't have a chance to make anything special for Hannukah until Thursday. I wonder if I can deep fry the pie I am bringing to a dessert party on Sunday. We'll see.
  7. Thanks! The cherry pie is an old minute tapioca recipe that my grandmother gave me.
  8. I made David Lebowitz's Chocolate Cake this weekend to delicious results. And it wasn't a pie.
  9. I have to stop baking pies and bake something else for a change. Pumpkin, cherry and two individuals.
  10. I have to stop making pie. This is a simple blackberry pie.
  11. I've been on a simple pie & bread kick lately. Cranberry & pear pie with streusel topping: Triple berry pie: Double chocolate banana bread: Sorry for the terrible camera phone pics.
