Add the unexpected to Easter dinner: butter roasted radishes

Easter sides are depressingly predictable. There will be asparagus, of course. If you’re lucky, there might even be three or four variations of asparagus. And there will be peas. And gratin potatoes. And probably some sort of salad that most people will only eat to be polite. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of this.

Embracing the baked dinner as your weeknight meal solution

People often ask me what my most-used kitchen tool is (a high-speed blender). But if you were to ask my mom that same question 30 years ago, I am sure she would have answered her Pyrex baking dish.

When I was growing up, probably 75 per cent of my meals were made in that thing. Baked fish. Baked chicken. Baked pasta. Baked rice casserole.

For the best Easter eggs, you need this simple hollandaise

When the subject is Easter eggs, most folks usually are talking about the gaily painted specimens in a basket. Me, I think of holiday brunch, and in particular of eggs Benedict. I think of the rich and indulgent dish of Canadian bacon, sauteed spinach and poached eggs enthroned on an English muffin, the whole kit and caboodle drenched in hollandaise sauce.
