FRONT BURNER: If one must fix dinner, mac, meat is a winner

posted: 09/24/2014 1:59 a.m. Discuss

Long, tiring weekdays call for easy dinners. Ideally, dinners that someone else prepares and brings to my house. Or leftovers that can simply be heated and served.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Kuhn Rikon Flexi Slice and Serve

posted: 09/24/2014 1:58 a.m. Discuss

The Kuhn Rikon Flexi Slice and Serve lets cooks slice and serve pies, cakes, quiches and more with one tool. The server features a nonstick, super-sharp (watch your fingers!) stainless-steel blade and ergonomic plastic handle. It is dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended.

Cooking for two: Sassy salad is fine for family, football fans

posted: 09/24/2014 1:57 a.m. Discuss

This can be an easy weeknight entree as well as tailgating menu item. Adding a fresh herb -- in this case, a mint sprig -- to the cooking water is a small step that makes a big difference.

SUNDAY: Buy smoked turkey breasts for family day. On the side, add corn-on-the-cob along with Moroccan Orange Beet Salad (see recipe) and whole-grain rolls. For dessert, slice pound cake and top it with strawberry sauce and whipped cream.

Uncorked: Jet manufacturer also a winemaker

posted: 09/24/2014 1:54 a.m. Discuss

Most of the world associates the Dassault name with aviation and space technology, and in Arkansas, many of us are familiar with Dassault Falcon Jet. But the Dassault family has another business I admire, or should I dare say adore -- the esteemed Chateau Dassault. I must admit I was smitten and honored to be included alongside Julien Dassault, with Ristorante Capeo hosting, as we welcomed this wine to our state.

Cooking with diabetes: Thai sauce spices up broiled bird, veggies

posted: 09/24/2014 1:52 a.m. Discuss

This spicy Thai treat is easy to make using a good quality Thai peanut sauce. My secret for cooking these kebabs is to leave about 1/4-inch between the ingredients on the skewers. This gives the heat a chance to reach all around the food.

Pre-roast soak improves nuts' flavor, crunch

posted: 09/24/2014 1:51 a.m. Discuss

The best unsolicited advice I ever got from a random old lady at the Park Slope Food Co-op was to soak my nuts. I was skeptical, as I typically am when counseled about my eating habits by overly concerned strangers -- especially when the advice sounds slightly pornographic.

Common varieties

posted: 09/24/2014 1:49 a.m. Discuss

The versatile fruits grow in clusters on vines and vary in shape from perfectly round to oblong. Eighty varieties of table grapes are grown in California, where 99 percent of the United States’ table grape crop is grown, but only a dozen or so are commonly found in grocery stores.

Helpful Hints

posted: 09/24/2014 1:40 a.m. Discuss

DEAR HELOISE: My wife and I canned tomatoes, green beans and tomato juice in 1997. Since then, my wife passed away, and time has moved on. Are these home-canned goods still good to use? I have asked friends and family and continue to get different answers.

Horoscopes by Holiday

posted: 09/24/2014 1:40 a.m. Discuss

Happy birthday. You'll be inspired going into this new year and will feel physically strong enough to take on a huge responsibility that will pay off in 2015. You'll do humanitarian work in November, and this leads to important alliances.

On Christianity

posted: 09/24/2014 1:40 a.m. Discuss

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I've always been a strong person, able to do anything I wanted to and was almost never sick. Then, a few months ago, I had a heart attack followed by bypass surgery. Now, I'm weak, depressed and angry at God. Why did He let this happen?

Super Quiz: Nelson Mandela

1. What did Nelson Mandela's government focus on dismantling?

LR food truckers talk of running restaurants on the road

posted: 09/23/2014 6:41 p.m. Discuss

Remembering to “tie everything down” sounds more like the No. 1 rule to sailing than to running a restaurant.

Cooking with grapes

posted: 09/23/2014 11 a.m. Discuss

Most of us reach for grapes as a snack or to add a sweet touch to chicken salad, but grapes lend themselves to a wide range of preparations, savory and sweet, writes Kelly Brant.
