Butterscotch pie, always second fiddle, is a secret crowd pleaser

Recently, over wedges of homemade pie, my sisters shared that they love butterscotch. Turns out the nieces do too. Then, my father, a self-confessed chocoholic, capitulated. We spoke of butterscotch sundaes, candies, warm sauce, boxed pudding and restaurant desserts layered in fancy glasses. Mom mentioned Thanksgiving pie, and the deal was sealed. Butterscotch. Pie. Done.

In the Garden | Why I’m grateful to be a gardener

It’s been an unusual autumn, hasn’t it? It’s been wet and unseasonably warm which seems odd this time of year. I hope winter will come soon because I know my garden needs it. In honor of Thanksgiving just around the corner, I have a short list of why I’m grateful to be a gardener. 

In the Garden | Protect newly planted trees and shrubs

Fall is a perfect time to plant trees and shrubs in North Central Washington. The temperatures in September and October are more moderate so the plants do not suffer heat stress. Since the soil remains above 40 degrees generally until the end of October, the roots of the transplanted trees and shrubs will grow. The new roots will both stabilize the plants as well as uptake water and soil nutrients.

A cook tackles pumpkin, but not in a pie

The pumpkin features a sturdy exterior and hollow interior, packed with problems. Like: It’s stringy. And watery. And starchy. Last time I wrestled with these complexities, pumpkin won.

Do home remedies for the common cold really work?

Kids have an average of six to eight colds each year and adults have two to four. Which home remedies do you use for colds and do you know if they really work? News that a homeopathic teething remedy has caused the deaths of at least 10 children has raised questions about the safety and effectiveness of alternative medicines for treating common problems.

One good recipe: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

If you’ve got school-aged children, you’re probably busy now that it’s fall. Between football games, soccer matches and other school events, kids keep you running. They also can keep you baking, with the time-honored tradition of parents having to prepare treats for booster organizations to sell as fundraisers at the school concession stand.

Chardonnay coming back in style

For the past few decades, Chardonnay has been America’s favorite wine. In fact, the grape most often identified with France’s Burgundy region — particularly Chablis — is the most-planted white variety in the world.

Options for enjoying your fresh veggies this winter

I grew up in a home that had a root cellar carved into a hillside. It smelled of earth and potatoes and carrots and cabbage and onions and was chilly year around. It was close enough to the house to walk through the snow to open the heavy wooden door and select the vegetables for dinner.

Fast soups for fall

Just because it’s soup season doesn’t mean you have to get out your big stockpot and set aside a whole afternoon. But you don’t have to just resort to opening a can, either.

Tips for storing soup safely

Fall’s arrival means soup’s on. And one question I get a lot is: What is the best way to safely cool and store soup?

Relishing Japan’s cuisine

Sushi is what comes to mind when you think of Japanese food, right? Makes sense, as sushi has long captured the American imagination, is fun to eat and generates billions of dollars in revenue, according to market studies. But what about Japanese food beyond that iconic dish?

Pizzaiola: How to add pizza flavor to just about anything

Pizzaiola is Italian for a pizza-style tomato sauce. Sounds straightforward, right? Well, the recipe certainly is. It usually starts with chopped tomatoes cooked with olive oil, a little garlic, a pinch of salt and some dried oregano. That’s it.

Pumpkin takes a walk on the savory side

It's hard to make it through fall without stumbling over a bright orange pumpkin, but that doesn't mean many end up on your dinner plate. Besides the ubiquity of pumpkin pie, most pumpkins end up as decorative items — carved up as jack o' lanterns or displayed as some colorful harvest scene. This is a shame, because they are extremely versatile in the kitchen, working well in both savory and sweet dishes.
