Applesauce Cake

This cake makes good use of canned applesauce.

Winter Salad: Pumpkin & Rice

Photo by Judith Hausman Pumpkin and rice are winter comfort foods. I love this pumpkin and rice winter salad recipe, a substantial cross between a salad and a side that makes use of long-keeping winter resources such as pumpkin and onions. Serve it room temperature accompanied by a green salad to make it a light […]

Orange Upside-down Cake

Photo by Judith Hausman This upside-down cake will turn a frown into a smile. Here’s a sweet for January. Not only does it use citrus in season, but it also is lighter and more sanctimonious than most cakes because January is the month of eaters’ remorse and diet resolutions. The cake is relatively lightly sweetened […]

Almond Pinwheels

This tapenade uses almonds instead of olives as its base.

Sweet Potato Pie

Photo by Judith Hausman Who doesn’t want a slice of pie?!  I’m from Southern New York, yes, but I certainly didn’t grow up with sweet potato pie. Still, even post-holidays, its homey spices sing to me. The texture and flavors are very similar to a pumpkin pie; in fact, this recipe works fine with pureed […]

Winter Slaw

  Photo by Judith Hausman Top some tacos with this winter slaw. We had black bean and corn tacos for dinner last night: perfect warming food for a frigid snowy night. The local corn in them (I had frozen wisely) reminded us that summer would eventually return. Still, even wintery dinners need the refreshment and […]

Pumpkin Hummus

Photo by Judith Hausman Middle Eastern meets American in this holiday twist. Inspiration twice over: long, deep-orange pie pumpkins from my CSA and the gift of a Middle Eastern cookbook. The result was pumpkin hummus, a novel hit at Thanksgiving. While any winter squash, especially butternut, would serve, these pie pumpkins are especially nonfibrous and […]

Pear Bread

  Photo by Judith Hausman Fruit plus bread equals “time to eat a snack.” The orchard store is still full of apples, but they are down to the last of the pears. I bought a big bag of small Bosc “utility” pears, spotted and still hard. They’ll ripen fast enough at home and the few […]

Green Puttanesca

  Photo by Judith Hausman Pasta puttanesca is a flavorful dish, perfect for fall or winter. I usually think of pasta puttanesca as a winter dish because it makes wonderful use of the pantry and its salty, strong flavors warm up a winter night. Puttanesca doesn’t relay on fresh vegetables and comes together in a […]

Barley Stuffed Peppers

  Photo by Judith Hausman Stuffed bell peppers make a traditional and hardy fall meal. Surprisingly hardy in the fall garden, juicy green bell peppers freeze well when diced, and they also can hold any number of tasty stuffings. This stuffed bell pepper recipe is pretty conventional, but rather than rice, I chose chewy barley. […]
