Every year we grow tomatoes (mostly heirloom, beefsteak & plum), peppers (from jalapenos to bell peppers), cucumbers for salads & smaller cucumbers for pickling, blueberries, zucchini […]

The Clam That Didn’t Get Away..

by Lynn October 11, 2011

Linguine with clams is one of my favorite dinners.  But, I only enjoyed it at restaurants.  I’ve always been a bit leery of actually dealing with the clams on my own.   Now, I’m happy to say frequently prepare my favorite linguini with clams recipe at home.  The clams aren’t difficult to handle at all.   The […]

Baking for the Holidays

by Lynn December 13, 2010

Holidays make me feel like a Keebler Elf.  I just love to bake and love baking with quality bakeware.  I really like to watch people enjoy my cookies, especially at Christmas.  And, as a side bonus, when I bake cookies, I never eat them.    Great way to control calories during the eating season!   I eat […]

by Lynn November 26, 2010

At MetroKitchen, we decided to celebrate a bit early this year.  Our 2011 holiday party was the result of a Turducken.

Staub Cast Iron Helps Overcome Roux Fears

Roux has forever intimidated me. I always burn it then have to resort to the instant roux. But, for a recent New Orleans-themed celebration, I decided it was time to go for the real stuff.

I’ve been wanting to use my new Viking 7 quart stand mixer and its many attachments for a few weeks.  Finally, I was able to try it out vs. my old stand-by KitchenAid mixer.  In short, I LOVE the Viking stand mixer!   It made a great batch of “Chippies,” a family favorite for three generations.

New All-Clad Karahi Pan

by Laura F. October 20, 2008

Tying on an apron, turning up my music, and spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking – that’s my idea of a relaxing evening. But after work, I’m hungry, so I like to make dishes that don’t take too long and that don’t require a lot of clean up. My ideal meal can be […]

Happy Blending with the Viking Hand Blender

by Danielle October 10, 2007

  I was recently passed the “torch” to try out in my own kitchen. What is the “torch” you ask? Well it’s the new Viking Hand Blender, of course! It actually does resemble Miss Liberty’s “torch”, and it also gives new meaning to the word “freedom” in the kitchen, just as the “torch” exemplifies freedom […]
