Roasted Delicata

In one way, I think my wife usually dreads the autumn, because that’s when I start doing things with winter squash. For the most part, she’s not into them. I think it has something to do with the way they…

Strawberry Jam

This jam in midwinter tastes as fresh as the berries tasted the previous summer. The secret is to make small batches and to not overcook. The jam tends to be thinner (excellent for pancakes or ice-cream topping!) and less gummy…

Broccoli Supreme

This is my sister Lyn’s recipe, and I traditionally ask her for it every year at  Thanksgiving, because everyone loves it. I think I must’ve done it for at least 15 years — probably more. You’d think I’d remember it…

Chickpea Cutlets

My wife found this recipe online and asked me to try making it. I’d never even heard of vital wheat gluten before. It’s used here to bind the mixture together, though I’m not sure why it doesn’t just use flour….
