Sunday Recipe: 5 Seed Crackers with Olive and Cilantro Tapenade

A cracker that’s jam-packed with everything that’s good for you. I recently found myself in an upscale grocery store pulling an overpriced box of “Flackers” down from the shelf. There was a dinner party and I was out of time, but let’s be honest: crackers are the last thing you […]

A healthier alternative to your weekly hamburger patty. Somewhere in between burgers and falafel you get quinoa cakes. The benefits?

Sunday Recipe: Anna’s Dutch Appeltaart with Cardamom

Sunday Brunch: French Chouquettes

French puffs of pastry for the breakfast averse. When it comes to food, we have a bit of a French obsession. Is there anything better than a cafe au lait and a pain aux raisins on a Sunday morning? Not a lot, but this recipe for choquettes from French Revolution […]

Sunday Recipe: Marinated Cilantro Cucumbers

Prep your mason jars.  Pickling is in, but quite frankly, who has the time? I grew up on a steady Swedish summer diet of marinated cucumbers, always kept on hand by my grandmother. They remind me of her kitchen, and unlike pickles, only have to sit for an hour for […]

Sunday Recipe: Swedish Apple Cake

Putting apple harvest to good use. When the first Gravenstein apples start to fall from our tree in late August, I pull out this recipe, Brita Nelsons Äppelkaka. I got it in 1970 from a friend (the cake’s namesake) when I still lived in Sweden. It is written with a […]
