I have long been a fan of Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s The Splendid Table and some years ago, I began subscribing to her Weeknight Kitchen. It really is lovely, once a week I get an email with a recipe and some Lynne Food for Thought!
Over the years, she has sent out some wonderfully delicious recipes, and because they are a “Weeknight” meal, they are simple and easy to prepare.
This week’s recipe was no exception, but it was a departure for my usual Cooking Comfort Zone.
Amazingly, I had most of the ingredients in the house and only needed to get a couple of things – another key to her recipes, they are both good and made with ingredients you have in your pantry.
The Official End of Summer is upon us and I have heard many friends lamenting this fact.
However, for the Knitter – Labor Day Weekend brings the start of autumn and with it, Knitting Season and Knitters everywhere are pulling out wool socks, sweaters, scarves, wraps, etc. If they are not pulling them out, they are casting them on! Three cheers for cool nights and shortening days. I have been contemplating what next to cast on – I have several things that have caught my eye. I will keep you posted as to what is up next.
For me, autumn is my favorite time of the year. It is fleeting but I love every moment of it, from the start of leaves changing colors to the joy of cooking “cool weather” meals.
Therefore, to kick off the Un-Official start of fall, this weekend I made meat loaf. And, boy was it good! The aroma that filled the house was warm and welcoming. I used a new recipe from Tyler Florence – and does he know meat loaf! It was a knock it out of the park hit and I can guarantee that this will grace my table again. I also did a little baking and whipped up my Peach Blueberry Cobbler.
