  1. In Our Kitchen: Capture the flavor of New Orleans with muffuletta


    It's true what they say about New Orleans. If a restaurant remains open in the city, it's because it's good. I got away for the weekend with seven girlfriends and an itinerary revolving around where to eat. We were not disappointed. …

  6. In Our Kitchen: Chicken Salad With Dried Cherries


    We had a good thing going. I'd go to O.E. Market in Tampa once every week or two and get a sandwich. My go-to order: the chicken salad with bibb lettuce on rye. It was a solid choice. A light chicken salad with just enough mayonnaise to hold things together and not a dollop more. I loved the fresh herbs and dried cherries, and, obviously, the generous side of freshly fried potato chips with gray salt. I'm telling you: Solid. Lunch. Order. …

  7. In Our Kitchen: Original Plum Torte


    My announcement one Saturday morning — "I'm making a plum cake!" — fell a little flat. My fiance was not enthused and when I explained that, no, it would not be a cake with frosting, I was met with even more skepticism. But soon the house was scented with cinnamon and the plum torte sat proudly on my cake stand. The cake itself doesn't take long to make, and it took even less time for this recipe to find its newest fans. …

  8. In Our Kitchen: Peach and Plum Crisp


    This time of summer is like being in stone fruit heaven, with all kinds of plums, fragrant peaches and plump cherries. I paired plums and peaches to make what is my favorite summer dessert: the Peach and Plum Crisp. It's as easy to make as it is delicious, and this stone fruit crisp will be loved by everyone at any potluck or hangout you're invited to this summer. …

  9. In Our Kitchen: Spaghetti With Sardines, Lemon and Anchovy Bread Crumbs


    The single-girl meal. For me, it had always been eggs or a tuna sandwich.  …

  10. In Our Kitchen: Tomato Cobbler


    If you mention that you're making a cobbler, the first thing people will think of is fruit and often it will be peach or apple. But tomatoes love biscuits, too, (and, after all, they're technically a fruit). Recipes that take a traditionally sweet dish and turn things savory always appeal to me.  …

  11. In Our Kitchen: Sweet and Smoky Beet Burgers with homemade buns


    The first time we went to Portland, we hiked, biked, and drank and ate our way around the city and developed a serious crush on the Pacific Northwest. It was July, a perfect time to leave overheated Florida for lush Oregon. …

  12. In Our Kitchen: Cool off with watermelon granita


    It's sweaty out there, whew. Jeans are getting pushed to the back of the closet. No pants till September. If, like me, you're looking for an excuse to stick y our head in the freezer, the answer is granita. Gra-ni-ta! That's the Italian name for this icy dessert, and you can flavor it pretty much any way you like.  …

  13. In Our Kitchen: Lime-Cilantro Tofu gives you a reason to roast


    I wouldn't ask you to crank up the oven right now if it wasn't worth it. My AC is struggling to get our apartment to a temperature lower than 75 degrees, but I want you to set the oven to 450 degrees. Just for 20 minutes or so. Y our whole meal will be on the table in less than an h our.  …

  14. In Our Kitchen : Go for the green with Spanish Pea Soup With Crispy Ham


    I should probably have joined a gym by now, two weeks into the new year. Danny has taken up swimming for days when he's not running or playing tennis. You're more likely to find my enthusiasm for health on the food side of things. Yes, even the salads and everything else green that magazines are presenting to you this month. Honestly, it's what I crave. Keep any stray holiday cookies to y ourself. …

  15. In Our Kitchen: Olive Oil Granola with Coconut and Cherries


    The first time I made granola, well, I didn't mean to. I was trying to bake my favorite oatmeal raisin cookies, though I somehow forgot the butter. Or was it the fl our? The resulting oatmeal raisin granola was good. We ate it all. …

  16. In Our Kitchen: 20-somethings expand their repertoire, and so can you


    The wok is hot. Chopped snow peas, green onions, and bell peppers are waiting to go. Oil screams as it hits the wok and catches fire. Smoke sets off the alarm. My boyfriend is trying to kill me. This isn't the first time.  …

  17. In Our Kitchen: Savory Onion Pie from an unlikely s ource


    Two-lane roads led us down to Pearl in the Grove, a small Dade City restaurant out in the middle of nowhere. Outside on the unpaved parking lot, the sky is bright with stars I can't see from my home closer to Tampa. …

  18. In Our Kitchen: Smoky Spanish paprika flavors saucy chicken


    During a weekend visit to Danny's home state of Iowa, a longtime friend of his treated us with a bag of culinary goodies she collected during her trip to Spain: a creme of sardine and whiskey pate in a small red and gold tin; a scorpionfish pate in a box with a drawing of the notoriously ugly sea creature on it; a tin of pimenton and another containing blood sausage pate. …

  19. Dad and daughter cook up scientific delights in kitchen lab


    TAMPA Reagan calls dibs on adding the sugar. Barely taller than the blender resting on the counter, she carefully p ours a tablespoon of the white granules in with the raspberries and calcium lactate. …
