I’m sure you’re all too busy today slowly roasting turkey and gnawing on your arm trying not to inhale the crispy bits of stuffing on the edges of the pan to be visiting me here. I hope that your holiday dinner today is delicious and that, like mine, it begins at 2pm and involves a houseful of family.
Despite the fact that we have upwards of 40 people at the Lapine Thanksgiving every year, we always have tons of leftovers. We’re Jews, after all.
If you wind up in the same boat today, and that boat includes 4 pounds of white meat turkey, I have a week’s worth of healthy (ish) recipes that will help transform your Thanksgiving leftovers into something worth gobbling again.… Continue Reading
There’s no better time to say thanks and give back than Thanksgiving. I get all mushy when I think about how thankful I am for all of you readers who have stuck with me throughout the journey of FMP and supported me with your comments and feedback. As always, I am going to try to express my gratitude in the form of schwag.
Wusthof is my favorite brand for good quality moderately priced knives. Their tools take up 90 percent of my magnetic knife strip, and they’ve lasted me pretty much entire tenure as a food writer without a problem. So, in honor of all the turkey that will be roasted and sliced to perfection, one of you lucky ones will get a brand new carving set to put to work next year around this time.… Continue Reading
Birthdays are a bit of a bummer for the gluten-free foodie, as you cannot always quite literally have your cake and eat it too. Since mine is tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a list of great GF cakes from my archives and around the web. I’m not the biggest baker, as you know, so I’ve yet to conquer the ultimate birthday cake in my kitchen. But I’m looking forward to other treats tomorrow, like kimchi and bibimbop.
It’s been a while since my birthday fell on a weekend, so it’s been an on-going tradition with my fellow self or fun-employed friends to take the day off and go on an ethnic food adventure.… Continue Reading
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. In addition to coming up with clever food costumes (see my Bagels and Locks from last year, which may just morph into Princess Leia-witz for this year. Think bagels instead of buns…), I love putting my pun-y mind to work on various menu items. This year I’ve stuck with a gluten-free theme for my Halloween recipes. They’re featured over on the Huffington Post, but I wanted to make sure to share them with you here too.
What’s your cleverest Halloween costume or treat? Let me know in the comments!
1. Wicked Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Soup | 2. Mini “Brain” Bites a.k.a Buffalo Cauliflower | 3. Baked Sweet Potato “Fingers” | 4. Bloody Marias | 5. Spooky Brie with “Spiders” and Sage | 6. Devilish Eggs with Lime and Siracha | 7. Vampire Polenta Cake with “Bloody” Raspberry Rhubarb Compote
It’s been a while since I threw some schwag your way! But my birthday is coming up, so I wanted to get my karma in the right place. (This year in lieu of gifts, I’ll be asking for presents.)
Come fall, everyone seems to be entertaining. I myself am having 9 girls over for dinner tonight and realize that the only plates I have 9 of are dessert-sized. Which, when you’re entertaining people in a studio apartment at a coffee table, is not necessarily a bad thing.
That said, I think most of us would benefit from a few complete adult-esque pieces.… Continue Reading
