Value white wines for sunny days

As we get into mid-May and early June and begin to see more warmth and sunshine, we begin to think about more about enjoying chilled white wines.

Dining on foodie books: Decadent, juicy, filling

It’s hard to believe that only 50 years have passed since Julia Child set foot on the new continent of American Foodlandia. And yet in that short period, it seems we’ve already seen the full cycle of colonial development: discovery, exploration, exploitation.

Grapefruit squared

Grapefruit, love child of an orange/pomelo hookup, flaunts one parent’s sunny nature and the other’s thick-skinned, rotund ways. The hybrid is all sunny bright, easy-peel, sweet and sour cheer.

Fresh asparagus signals start of spring

Spring, for me, isn’t sprung on the say-so of meteorologists or a calendar date but on the sudden, dramatic appearance in the neighborhood supermarket of a truckload of fresh asparagus shipped in from somewhere.

Don’t be an egghead: Use those leftover Easter eggs in a salad

PARIS — Easter still makes me think of vinegar. A clear wax crayon, drawn onto the white shell, not able to see the childish designs, hoping for the best. Dipping into the colored, vinegary dye with a flimsy wisp of wire shaped like a stop sign. Who decided a hexagon was best suited for Easter egg fishing?

Muffin genealogy

I grew up with the English muffin; I know its habits. It comes from the grocery store, lives in the fridge, and has a thing for the toaster. It’s quirky: brown spotted, fork split, craggy faced. I didn’t pry.
