Whether or not you celebrate the Jewish holidays, a good brisket recipe is a nice thing to have in your winter repertoire. Brisket is a tough and fairly inexpensive cut of meat that gets amazingly tender after some quality time in the oven, and it requires little attention or care while it cooks. That’s a nice characteristic in a piece of beef.

I think this is (possibly) the best Brussels sprouts recipe I have ever made. They are roasted and then tossed while still warm with an assertive dressing that makes your mouth jump up and down with joy.
And for those who don’t like Brussels sprouts (and in fact my family is divided), well, more for the rest of us. Jack and I were happy to be responsible for the leftovers.
“Salted” and “caramel” are two words that make many people get misty in the eyes and weak in the knees.
You can buy lovely salted caramel in the stores to drizzle over ice cream, cake, pie or just your tongue, but you can also make it easily at home, and for a lot less money. Do share the wealth ‚Äî what a great holiday gift this makes.
Holidays equal platters and tins of festive-looking cookies. Cookies with colored icing, cookies with sprinkles, cookies with fillings, cookies with layers.
I decided to take my favourite brownie recipe, the one I published in “The Mom 100 Cookbook” a handful of years ago, and turn it into something that says, “Hi, pumpkin season, how’ve you been?”
Almost any big meal could use a green salad to round things out (and balance the heavier items on the table). But not just any old pile of lettuce.
Spoonbread is a wonderfully old-fashioned dish that should not be relegated to the tables of old-fashioned cooks.
Any time capers mingle with anchovies and garlic, I’m happy. You might think these are very strong flavours, but when they are used sparingly they add a lovely layer of salty/savory flavour to whatever dish they grace.
When I serve this to my family, do I mention that there are anchovies in it? Nope, I don’t. Do they think it’s delicious? Yup, they do.
A while back, in honour of Julia’s Child’s birthday (she would have been 104 this year), I created a dish that embodies one of her many excellent sayings: “The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”
If you have kids, then you know that thinking about dinner on Halloween is not easy.
Getting the kids out the door with a little something in their stomachs besides candy is one of the few things you can do to wrangle a bit of order into this free-for-all holiday.
