Sometimes we cook by the seat of our pants. Other times we like to follow directions, and that's when we turn to this, our treasury of recipes for every meal, course and drink of the day.

Absorption Method Pasta

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Pasta & Grains, Recipes

This just in: Boiling water isn't the only way to cook pasta! Using a risotto-style technique of gradually cooking the pasta in a saucepan with warm stock results in wonderfully toothsome and flavorful noodles. Because it isn't drained away with the cooking water, a layer of starch coats every...

Market Hall Bakery Fruitcake

on Monday, 16 December 2013. Posted in Desserts, Recipes

Not your average fruitcake, this is the best one we've ever tasted. Seriously. OK, so yes, it is a big recipe, but trust us that it's as chock-full of wonderful flavor as it is with ingredients.

Though the "crostini" is an Italian word, these addicting appetizers are far from Italian. Drawing inspiration from the flavors of the South of France, we can imagine enjoying these with the Mediterranean breeze in our hair and a crisp, cold glass of rosé.

Pasta Carbonara

Pretty much the perfect weeknight meal, carbonara takes about 15 minutes to pull together and you'll be fully-satisfied. If you insist on a vegetable, a simple arugula salad with the best extra virgin olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and salt and pepper is the way to go. This recipe serves 2 - it's...
