Adventures in Eating: Brie En Croute

It is a little unsettling to write this column for the holidays, as I must think ahead when I know I am not emotionally ready for the holidays. That always begins after Thanksgiving. My benchmark is Halloween, when I begin thinking of Thanksgiving. The way merchandising is going these days, I fear Halloween will soon… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Georgian Beet Appetizer

This is P.K., Sr. writing this month. I just pulled rank on Rosemarie and asked her for the recipe portion of this column, requesting that I do the pream­ble. The reason: She is a creative food wiz­ard, and her wizardry deserves this ac­colade. For my birthday, she decided to treat me, our daughter, and son-in-law, to… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Homemade Ice Cream

Remember the story of the King who promised his daughter in marriage to the young man who would create a dish for him that was both hot and cold at the same time? Voila, the winner created the hot fudge sundae and married the princess. So goes the tale. Water ices were known in the… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Ham, Broccoli, & Egg Souffle

I will never move again. However, I am reminded by many that one should “never” say “never”. Well, at least the next move will be in the twilight years, when our needs are a bit different. The Mayflower van pulled up with Paul still sorting and packing his boxes of papers and magazines. The accumula­tion of… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Curried Eggplant Soup

It is rare when I can take a recipe just as it is and think it superb. Most times, I like to add and subtract ingredients and sort of make it my own thing, much like moving into a new home and redoing it to make it feel like your home. This recipe is an… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Flaming Raisin Sauce

No matter how hard I try to stay ahead of a holiday menu through WOMC, I am always behind. Here, I thought, is an easy showy sauce for the holiday ham, and I am a month behind. Surely, you froze some of that delicious meat, so use leverage when you serve it again. I have… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Mrs. Kellog’s Cereal Pie Crust

How does anything begin? Our lives roll along, and we partake of our environment, and every now and then ask ourselvest his question: Who started or created what I am eating? Time and again, I find religion has been a factor in this development. As we become more familiar with the shrinking world around, food history… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Uncrabby Crab Sandwich

To try and simplify one’s life today takes effort, concentration, careful evaluation, and a diagnosis of one’s status. I don’t mean to get too serious, but as one friend stated it, “Living is hard work!” Perhaps a good New Year’s resolution would be to cut through the layers of dai­ly life, and selectively give simplifying… read more »

Adventures in Eating: Chorba

“Chorba” is a word reminiscent of my childhood and a strong reminder of my Armenian roots. Mother often related sto­ries of her mother making a cauldron of “chorba” to feed the family of seven with a nu­tritious and economical meal. Soup is the closest translation I can give “chorba”. Yet it also connotes “hear­ty, satisfying,… read more »
