I’ m a big fan of steel cut oatmeal, but I don’ t always have time to make it in the morning, so I’ ve started buying the quick cooking steel cut oats.

Knowing this little trick will keep the oats from boiling over and will save you from having to...

Early summer proves the perfect time to cook a batch of homemade tomato ketchup, whirl up fresh mayonnaise and enhance everything with fresh herbs. This summer, I am customizing my condiment selection to keep the weekly burgers (meat, poultry and veg variations) interesting. These jars of goodness also will be useful in salads made from grilled chicken or hard-boiled eggs destined for backyard ...

It makes an unexpectedly satisfying snack. And blissful? Yeah, sort of. Size: 8 ounces Price: $3.69 Available: Target, Walmart, some grocery stores ...

MINNEAPOLIS — "Foraging, in my mind, isn't just an act — it's a mind-set and a healthy way of life," writes Alan Bergo in "The Forager Chef's Book of Flora" (Chelsea Green Publishing, $34.95). "It's about the willingness to look beyond the status quo for exciting and unconventional ingredients; an eagerness to make the best possible uses of all the edible parts of plants and animals; and a ...

As a rough estimate, I’d say I have about 200 cookbooks at home. Also as a rough estimate, I’d say I make a total of about 201 recipes from them. I don’t understand myself. It’s one thing to have favorites. Children have their favorite toys. Parents have their favorite children. It’s human nature. So it would make sense if I tried, say, 50 recipes from a cookbook, or even 75, and only then, ...

Now that COVID-19 restrictions are loosening, I thought I would pick out a wine to help celebrate our newfound freedom. Unshackled cabernet from the Prisoner Wine Co. of Napa Valley, California, is the perfect wine to have with friends or family you haven’t seen in months. The Prisoner wines are known to be big and bold, and the Unshackled cabernet is no exception. This is a big juicy cab ...

CHICAGO — This story of happenstance involves a 101-year-old Chicago sausage maker, an 84-year-old local Italian deli and Home Depot. It’s a story that could take place only in Chicago, and it’s the kind of story that makes me love this city, somehow, even more. Sure, there’s the sting of February cold and as much corruption as there are pinstripes on Ald. Edward Burke’s suits. But as a kid ...

Is there anything more wonderful than strawberry season? The crop has started to come in at local farms and if you're like me, the race is on to eat and preserve as many of these sweet and luscious berries as possible in the coming weeks.

Here’s a dinner to welcome the official start of summer. It’s a bright blend of summer zucchini, green beans and tomatoes. A little goat cheese mixed in at the end gives the soup a creamy texture. It’s a simple, vegetarian dinner that also tastes great the next day, so make extra if you like. I use Roma tomatoes for the soup. They are firm and have more flesh and less juice than other types of ...

Cooking should be fun, and there are plenty of opportunities to do so without breaking the bank or dirtying up too many dishes. Plantains look like large, spotted bananas and are a staple in Caribbean, Central and South American, West African and Southeast Asian cuisines. The sweet Caribbean staple is perfect when paired with a spicy or charred entree, like jerk...
