FRONT BURNER: Olives make sweet, citrusy chops shine

posted: 04/11/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

My husband loves green olives -- in salads, on pizza, as an accompaniment to sandwiches and as a snack.

Hello, spring. We're so glad you're here.

Reading Nook

posted: 04/11/2018 1:47 a.m. Discuss

Matthew Prescott's book Food Is the Solution: What to Eat to Save the World ($30, Flatiron Books) is beautiful, appetizing and a little bit preachy. OK, maybe a lot preachy.

Cooking for two: Don't fear the snapper: En papillote saves day

posted: 04/11/2018 1:46 a.m. Discuss

If you have fear of cooking fish, well, so do I. It goes from just right to overcooked so fast! And a piece of overcooked fish is a sorrow, small but real. (I always think, morosely, "A fish died for this!") So more good news: Fish cooked in parchment paper is as dummy-proof as it gets. The two variations here -- one with potatoes and one with asparagus -- have cooking times that vary by 5 minutes. (Potatoes, even parboiled ones, take longer to cook than asparagus.)

Uncorked: Readers' requests net wine guidance

posted: 04/11/2018 1:44 a.m. Discuss

If you know me well, you know I am always one to celebrate -- even if I'm a little late sometimes. Uncorked turned 13 last month. For me, each year is a monumental milestone and a reflection on how much I truly enjoy writing this column for my readers. In addition to my love and passion for learning more about wine, it's your feedback, ideas and your questions that make it the most fulfilling.

Cooking with diabetes: Greek egg sauce covers asparagus

posted: 04/11/2018 1:41 a.m. Discuss

A Greek avgolemono sauce is a reminder of the simple wonder of cooking. Whenever I whip one up, I feel as if I am making magic. By applying an easy technique to a few everyday ingredients -- egg ("avgo," in Greek), lemon juice and broth -- you get a lusciously silky, tangy sauce that turns just about any cooked vegetable, fish or poultry into an elegant dish, and in a healthful way, to boot.

DEAR HELOISE: On a blustery day, there's nothing as satisfying as a hot bowl of soup. You had a recipe for an Italian soup that was out of this world. Would you repeat that recipe?

Happy birthday. You'll be spotlighted for something you do; then you'll be connected with others who have related talents. You'll co-create something you all will be proud of. The financial deal you make in June will be great for your personal life, too, as long as you consider people for their character and heart above all else.
