Stacks upon stacks of pie

In Kentucky, stack cakes are common, but few people are familiar with stack pies.

Toppings with po-lenty of polenta potential

In most cases, I’m a terribly traditional cook. If there is a longer, slower, more manual way to do something, almost invariably I will prefer it. But even I push tradition aside when I find an alternative that is not only easier but also tastes as good or better.

One rotisserie chicken, 25 ideas for dinner

After a long day, who hasn’t stumbled into the grocery store without the faintest idea of what to put on the table, when suddenly the tempting whiff of a freshly roasted chicken puts everything into perspective?

Starting seeds the easy way

Early last September, when the smoke was so thick that it was inadvisable to go outdoors without a gas mask, the Master Gardeners got together on my patio to make plans for the spring plant sale. The air was slightly clearer at our elevation, and the patio, surrounded by tall evergreens, seemed to be filtering the air.

Tomato-bread salad happily accommodates every whim

When local tomatoes are at their peak, as they are right now, my favorite dishes to make with them are gazpacho and panzanella, the latter being an Italian bread and tomato salad studded with crisp onion and cooling cucumber.

Value reds are perfect fit for midweek meals

It’s midweek, and you are rushing to get dinner on the table. It’s not a particularly special meal, but a nice red wine could help make it a bit more memorable.

Breakfast for dinner brings out the kid in us

I’m not of the pancakes-for-dinner set. There are advocates, of course (mostly among kids?), but my breakfast-for-dinner craving runs more toward huevos rancheros.

Would you want to live to be 120?

ORLANDO, Fla. — Otis Cliatt is 73 and hopes to make it to 100. Ginger Hallowell is 81 and thinks 90 will be long enough on this earth.
