Meat Free Mondays (week beginning 18 September 2017)

By Jacqueline Meldrum Happy Monday my friends.It’s come around again hasn’t it? It must be a sign of getting older that the week whizzes by, no make that the year!I don’t have any family tales to share with you this week. It was a pretty busy but average week. Cooper stayed with his grandparents at the weekend and I was working on Saturday. I did go out to the pub after work with friends for some dinner and a few drinks before heading home to watch a couple of DVDs (Graham was in Edinburgh at a gig so I was home alone). La …read more

Crispy Oven-Roasted Potatoes (and remembering a childhood friend)

By Irvin These easy to make crispy oven-roasted potatoes are crackly crisp on the outside with a tender fluffy inside and are made without frying. (Jump directly to the recipe.)

It was walking home from my ceramics class last week that I found out my childhood friend Chris has passed away. I was staring at my phone, scrolling through Facebook when his brother Tim wrote about his passing on. I stood there in the BART train, the world passing by in a blur out the windows as I tried to absorb the information of a world without him. Chris and I weren’t close …read more

Plum Walnut Skillet Cake

By Sally Vargas When was the last time you threw a cake together in 15 minutes? Well, this one delivers and it will make you so happy!
Juicy plums are excellent for eating out of hand, but baking with them is one of the finest pleasures of summer. Their flesh is sweet and their skins are tart, so they inspire use in tarts, crumbles, muffins, coffee cakes — or in this case, an easy walnut cake.
The walnuts also give moistness and earthy flavor to the cake, which is heavily scented with the zest of an entire lemon. The whole dough can be made in …read more

Visit a Pear Farm (+ Farro Pear Salad with Ginger-Sesame Dressing)

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by California Pear Advisory Board. See below for more details. One of the greatest disconnects in food today is that of where our food comes from. Sure, it’s becoming more prominent to know your farmers thanks to CSAs and Farmers’ markets but what about the produce you buy at your local grocery store? A sizable amount is coming from California and usually has a good family story behind it. Pears are the perfect example. There are currently around 60 multigenerational family farms growing pears in Northern California. The Delta is one of my favorite spots within 30 minutes …read more

Crispy Basket Burritos – For Once, Oven-Baked is Better Than Fried

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) I worked at a Mexican restaurant while in college, and one of my least favorite tasks was frying the flour tortilla bowls. You had to hold the two parts of the basket that formed them together while they fried, all the while getting splattered by hot fat, and breathing grease vapors. It wasn’t fun, but they did come out nice and crispy, so to everyone else involved, it was totally worth it. Here, we’re using the oven to achieve what I consider a superior product. They’re just as beautiful, and crispy as the ones from the deep fryer, but seem …read more

Aubergine, Sweet Potato and Metis Tagine

By Jacqueline Meldrum Let’s get fruity!My tagine I mean, no funny business. Aubergine, sweet potato and Metis® are the base of this spiced Moroccan stew, which is served on a base of fluffy couscous. A feast for a king or at least an everyday mum, dad and small boy. And talking about that small boy. He was hanging about while I took photos desperate to get stuck in. He loved it! This is a day to remember. He didn’t flinch when I said it had aubergine in it and he didn’t poke at it suspiciously as he often does when I present him …read more

Herbed Cucumber Salad with Farro

By Erin Alderson More often than not during the summer months, I have a cucumber rolling around in the crisper drawer. I buy a couple every week to use with our simple dinner salads and occasionally for quick pickles. More often than I like to admit, I wait until the last minute to use them and that’s when salads like this cucumber salad happen. I love tossing whatever grains and herbs I have around and that makes quick work of a salad like this. I prefer to use burpless cucumbers (like Persian cucumbers) but really any type of cucumber will work. …read more
