A proper roast-chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, beef, game-should be juicy, with a snappy crust, and flavored with herbs and/or spices or simply well seasoned with salt and pepper. When fully rested, it should be brought to the table and carved. Preferably on a beat-up wooden board.

Looking for a dress for Christmas Eve is always fun. By the way, my idea of fun is BodyPump, kickboxing, and running for 11 miles at a stretch. Obviously, my fun must involve torture and special wardrobe-and sweat.

This recipe was sent to me by one of my readers and closest friends, Adelina. Adelina is the type of friend who seems like she was born in the kitchen and has long been the culinary go-to in our group of friends. When we were in college, Adelina would be whipping up scrumptious eggplant parmesean while the rest of us would pat ourselves on the back for making a box of mac and cheese.

It was a wonderful weekend. Zach planned the trip -- rented a car and found an amazing hotel - on Thursday and we zipped off on Friday. Often short notice can mean stress and confusion, but our trip to Burgundy was nothing of the sort. It was peaceful and exciting, filled with new scenery and lots of opportunities to say 'bon appetit', which in itself should constitute a good trip.

Aside from working on a Saturday, today was slightly less than eventful. We were running low on groceries, so my meals today weren't very exciting. I had some over easy eggs and toast for breakfast, whiched turned out to be pretty tasty.

Every region in India has its own unique method of preparing dishes.This dish here is inspired from Goa that is popular not only for its natural scenic beauty but also for its spicy Goan cuisine with the use of coconuts, vinegar,tamarind and red chillies.Being a spice buff, I'm quite fond of Goan dishes and was looking for an easy recipe for some time.

French toast-- it's a Sunday morning favorite in our house and after years of tinkering with egg to milk to sugar ratios, I am finally sharing "the one". I like my french toast thick with a good texture; crunchy on the outside and tender, but not soggy on the inside.

Like every great man, standing right behind him is two even greater women and Mrs Hederman (Caroline Workman & Frank’s daughter Alex) are no exception. Often the admin people when things get busy as ‘Frank is useless’ at that sort of thing, the Hederman ladies are stepping out from behind Frank`s large shadow to bring foodies their own range of delicious pies and tarts.

An interviewer recently asked me, “what’s new in your pizza & flatbread book that you didn’t already cover in “Artisan Bread…” and in “Healthy Bread…”? My answer: A lot!

Whoever said that too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the soup wasn't entirely correct.

When it comes to vegan cooking and baking, cheese substitution is one of those things that gives me a headache. I’m a bit wary of soy-based alternatives, as they seem over-processed and unnatural in comparison.

I admit I am still at a loss with most spices. Now that I live in the Middle east, close to India, the spice shelves are packed with spices I am not even familiar with. I can identify a lot more spices by their looks and smells than 7 years ago, before I moved to Dubai.

With the arrival of each new month, I have a little routine of running through the house flipping all of our calendars. We have several calendars just like we have several clocks, because I’m all time-conscious. I could have sworn it was just yesterday that I flipped to November.

This day marks the one year anniversary of my first ever blog post and what a year it has been. The blog has gone from something very small that only my family and closest friends cared about to something that thousands of people visit a month. I am truly humbled. I am truly grateful.

After a bit of research, we found that they are indeed the same animal, of the genus Emeritus, also known as the Sand or Mole Crab. On Martha’s Vineyard, they are usually called “Sand Fleas”, but this term is also used to describe any number of small biting flea, shrimp and fly-like critters. In the interest of keeping things at least moderately appetizing, lets call them Mole Crabs from now on.

I prepared this stew with boar meat. Boar reminds me of autumn in Europe, the season of La Chasse, or the hunting season. Like most game, boar is lean and slightly gamey. It benefits from slow cooking and pairs well with fruit and spirits, such as Calvados and Armagnac. If you cannot find boar meat, pork is a good substitute.

Last weekend, I set out on a run. I was excited because temperatures were warm and the sun was out--when you're usually running at 5 am, it's a real treat to run in daylight. My excitement quickly turned to frustration. The source of my frustration? The 20-30 mph winds I found myself fighting for over an hour.
