Front Burner: Maple pie is part fall, part therapy

posted: 09/17/2014 2 a.m. Discuss

To celebrate the impending arrival of fall (and because I'm still working through that stress I mentioned two weeks ago) I baked a pie. But not just any pie. Not one of the usual autumn pies. Not pumpkin. Not apple. Not pear. Not pecan. I baked a maple pie.

Idea Alley: Sausage aids sauce; recipe box runs low

Cooking with diabetes: Pumpkin seeds, lime make zesty fish topper

posted: 09/17/2014 1:47 a.m. Discuss

Roasted pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, as they are known in Spanish, are a delicious, protein-rich treat. But they're also a lot of work if you prep them yourself.

Cooks chop preparation time with a little planning

posted: 09/10/2014 2:14 a.m. Discuss

Thirty-minute dinners sound great on paper. And in a perfect kitchen with perfect pets, children and spouses who always stay out of the way, know exactly when to help without being asked and know what needs to be done without being told maybe 30-minute dinners are possible.

Front Burner: New Jif spread calls and won't let her go

posted: 09/10/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

Move over Nutella, there's a new chocolate and hazelnut-flavored spread in town: Jif Salted Caramel Flavored Hazelnut Spread.

Idea Alley: Falafel hunt led to tzatziki like Layla's

Front Burner: String of unfortunate news becomes a reason to bake

posted: 09/03/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

It was not baking weather -- a steamy 88 degrees -- but a week of disappointing news had put me in a baking mood.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Tong Tools

posted: 09/03/2014 2:09 a.m. Discuss

Kuhn Rikon's Tong Tools (also called Locking Servers) can be used separately as a serving fork and turner (pictured) or snap the two pieces together to create tongs. The set is also available with a spoon in place of the turner. The heat resistant (up to 425 degrees) tools won't scratch nonstick cookware and are dishwasher safe.

Idea Alley: Light dishes swell in summer swelter

Front Burner: Title may be fake, tasty result is real

posted: 08/27/2014 2:01 a.m. Discuss

There's nothing Peruvian about this chicken. At least not in an authentic sense. The name refers to a common and popular rotisserie chicken found on the East Coast. The dish is also known as Super Chicken, El Pollo Rico and Pollo a La Brasa.

Idea Alley: 'Hash,' date rolls heavenly desserts

Cooking with diabetes: Sriracha puts the snap in grilled chicken dish

posted: 08/27/2014 1:52 a.m. Discuss

This entree combines the flavors of a caprese salad (tomatoes, mozzarella and basil) with the hearty protein of chicken breasts. Sriracha gives the balsamic reduction a bit of a kick. For a milder dish, reduce the hot sauce to 1 teaspoon.

Front Burner: Banana bread's how the cookie crumbled

posted: 08/20/2014 2:11 a.m. Discuss

It was a potential baking disaster.

Cooking for two: Fruit, cream dish a smashing treat for two

posted: 08/20/2014 2:08 a.m. Discuss

Dessert recipes that make just two servings are hard to come by, which explains why we often reach for a carton of ice cream for an after-dinner treat. But this dish is easy to tailor to make as many or as few servings as desired.

Idea Alley: Sandwich cools it with pimento, ham
