Sweet Potato Salad

Did you know that sweet potatoes are full of nutrition and health benefits? According to Natural News, sweet potatoes have superior fiber content, large amount of vitamin B6 (good for your heart), vitamin A (good for your skin), manganese (supports healthy blood sugar levels), and vitamins C & E (antioxidants).
I’ve always been a fan of sweet potato – baked whole, as fries, in sushi, and even in sandwiches. I first tried sweet potato salad at New England Soup Factory in Brookline, MA, and fell in love at first bite. NESF (a Boston Bakes participant) doesn’t always have it available, but …

 

More Pancakes, Please!

chocolate chip pancakes from recipegirl.com
Chocolate chip pancakes were always my breakfast of choice when I was a kid. The thought of light and fluffy pancakes with sweet chocolate and warm syrup makes my mouth water. Any flavor pancakes, from banana to blueberry to lemon-ricotta, are a delicious breakfast treat.
But when I eventually roll out of bed on Saturday morning, pancakes often seem like a hassle to prepare. So instead of letting the laziness take over and reaching for the cereal box, this little gadget will solve any pancake problems you might have.

Slap Happy

Last week while I was chatting on the phone with my cousin who lives in Salem, MA, she mentioned her newest kitchen gadget that she just can’t get enough of. When I told her that I’d never heard of it she was taken aback. So I did a little research of my own, and I, too, soon became seduced by the wonder of what is the Slap Chop.
A small, handheld device, with a hollow core and a W-shaped blade concealed within the body of the gadget, the Slap Chop minces and dices a plethora of foods. By “slapping” the lever on the …

I don’t go out for breakfast often but when I do I feel like I am on vacation.  It is just a special treat that I don’t take advantage of as often as I should! For some reason going out, being served and ordering something I would not make for myself is a wonderful way to start a day! I don’t have to make a mess in the kitchen and clean it up- an extra bonus!
I highly recommend you go out for breakfast whether …

 

Childhood favorite The German Pancake!

 
The first thing I remember learning to make from my mother was a German pancake!  The recipe came from the Settlement Cookbook.  We would have it for breakfast or dinner and it was always a treat.  It was then that I was introduced to the importance of a good and well seasoned cast iron pan.

Scrambled eggs a la Gordon Hamersley

Recently I took a class at the BCAE in Boston which I will tell you about at another time with Gordon Hamersley from Hamersley’s Bistro in Boston. The class was incredible but again you will have to wait to read more about the class and why you should take any class that Gordon teaches.  He is a teacher and listening to him you learn so much and Gordon shares so much with you.  I wished the evening did not end!
