Staycation

I was craving a teriyaki Trader Vic's-style thing so I grilled up a Nicky Farms wild boar patty, yakionigiri (grilled rice balls), fresh pineapple and bell peppers. The wild boar is really nice — it's leaner and more flavorful than farm pork. It goes well […]

Greengage

Greengages are an old plum that came to England from France, where they were called Reine Claude. In Germany, where they are much relished, they’re called Reneklode. “[W]hen quality alone is considered,” wrote nineteenth-century horticulturist Charles Mason Hovey, “the Green Gage must carry off the […]

Tea Loaf of the Week

Tea loaf of the week! Lemon-poppyseed buttermilk cake with lemon peel that I candied for holiday baking. I’ll serve it with rhubarb-carrot marmalade at my writers’ group this evening. #ambaking #whenlifegivesyoulemons #cake A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) on May 25, 2017 at […]

Chocolate Chip-Marmalade Bread

Baked a loaf of my favorite chocolate chip-marmalade bread for this rainy spring day.

Pass the Macrame

No one’s been eating the case of oatmeal that I bought from @bobsredmill and there’s a backlog of yogurt in the fridge, so I did the logical thing that any child of the 1970s would do: I made granola. This is thick oats toasted for […]

Toddy Marmalade

I haven’t tried this recipe, but boiling the rinds in a few changes of water reduced the pectin along with the bitterness, which is why Mr. Bradley recommends adding the high-pectin pulp of Golden Pippins (apples) back in. By the time this recipe was published […]

Gooey Orange Sticky Buns

Today is New Year’s Eve, and instead of planning a healthy regime change in 2012 I am doing the opposite. I say: more bread. More dessert. More DIY sticky-icky. I’m bringing butter and eggs and gluten back. I’m bringing the old bitch back. And if […]

Mochi Milk Bread French Toast with Strawberry-Lemon Compote

I know I write a lot about breakfast. Can’t help it. It is, after all, the most important meal of the day, and Portland has such a cultish breakfast and brunch culture (and let’s face it; brunch is just breakfast with alcohol). It might just […]

Pork cheek confit with caramelized turnip and apples

Spring has indeed sprung, yet I always find myself at this time of year with a certain yen for autumnal things. Pomes and root vegetables; meats cooked to shredded perfection, their connective stuff all pulverized (by time, or pressure) to gelatin. These are good things, […]

Meyer limoncello

I know this isn’t quite the way the Italians do it,  but I reckon they might if they got their hands on a bushel of sweet Meyer lemons. I don’t have anything against Sorrento lemons, mind, I just think these smooth little globes of sunshine […]
