There's absolutely nothing wrong with using a boxed broth. I've found that some are better than others, but they are super convenient when putting together a multitude of meals, especially when making soup.  They have a long shelf life and are nice to have in your food...

We've all done it.  We've bought that bunch of bananas in the store and then let them sit just a day or two longer than we intended before eating.  I love bananas, but in my opinion, there is really only a few good days in the life of a banana at it's perfect ripeness,...

We all have our favorite recipes, those we make over and over.  Butternut Squash soup is at the top of that list for me.  As soon as the leaves begin turning color and there's a nip in the air, I start making this and it becomes a regular menu item around here until sp...

First of all you might ask, "Why are you teaching cooking classes?"  Well, I'm passionate about food, that's why.  Everything about food is interesting to me, from looking at the seed catalogues in the dreary winter months and dreaming of the beautiful garden that I ho...

Is there anything that smells as good as fresh bread baking in the oven?  I would have a hard time thinking of something to rival it.  The time you've set aside to mix and knead and then to let those loaves rise, hardly seems like a sacrifice, once...
