Cooking From Scratch: Candied orange peels an easy, sweet holiday treat
November 26, 2014
Amidst the flurry of sugar cookies and peanut butter balls that get made over the holiday season, I always find a few moments to sneak in a batch of what is perhaps my favorite Christmas candy of all: candied orange peels.
Bite Sighs: Pumpkin cranberry bread to take on the road
November 25, 2014
Not overly moist or crumbly as most pumpkin bread, this one is firm and slightly dense; studded with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, it’s the perfect in-car take-along snack that won’t leave crumbs in the upholstery as you head over the river and through the woods.

Earlier this year, the Journal-World assembled a list of the top 10 wonders of the Lawrence food world. Why not do it again with beverages?
Off the Beaten Plate: The Spud at Limestone Pizza
November 19, 2014
Just when we thought pizza couldn’t get any more carb-heavy, along comes The Spud at Limestone Pizza.
Off the Beaten Plate: The Blissful Swiss at Eats
November 14, 2014
Looking to dabble in a little food espionage? The Blissful Swiss at Eats is essentially a Reuben sandwich masquerading as a hot dog, and a tasty one at that. It’s missing the rye bread (who eats a hot dog on rye?) and of course, the corned beef, but still calls to mind the classic sandwich.
Beyond turkey: Ideas for an alternative Thanksgiving menu
November 12, 2014
While most folks still enjoy a classic Thanksgiving meal, many others will want to try something new this holiday season.
Cooking from Scratch: Time for citrus tea
November 12, 2014
As scarlet leaves fall to the frosty, gray branches of November, my favorite comforts become knitting and tea. They’re simple treats, but, with winter beginning to hint at its coming, their importance to my morale is hard to overstate.
Delicious/Nutritious: The magical, misunderstood spaghetti squash
November 12, 2014
Spaghetti squash is a magical vegetable, able to go from a hard-fleshed beast to a light pile of noodles in just under an hour. Plus 100 grams of spaghetti squash has just 31 calories. So, if you like warm pasta dishes as the weather gets cooler, try subbing in this squash and spending your pasta calories elsewhere.
Lawrence Libations: Bourbon Hot Cocoa at Milton’s Café
November 5, 2014
Now that fall has officially hit its stride, the winter months aren’t far off. It may be time, then — for those of you who like to break out the twinkle lights and holiday jams before Thanksgiving — to once again enjoy that favorite wintertime drink, hot chocolate. It’s a treat that’s often tied to childhood memories, but the folks at Milton’s Café are shaking things up a bit with an adults-only version spiked with bourbon.
Authentic Chinese menus find popularity at Lawrence restaurants
October 29, 2014
Here’s a revelation for you. That Chinese food many of us grew up with — think crab rangoon, General Tso’s chicken and the like — isn’t really Chinese. Those recipes, long staples in suburban buffets across the country, are American versions of Chinese food, cultivated through generations of immigrants to appeal to a more western palate.
Cooking from Scratch: The secret to flavorful pumpkin seeds
October 29, 2014
The novelty of roasting plain seeds no longer outweighs their bland flavor. While you can sprinkle a little salt on top easily enough, it never really sticks well. To get amazing salty flavor the seeds need to be brined.
Cooking from Scratch: Easy popcorn balls a treat from Halloweens past
October 23, 2014
These really are, as the recipe card my mom read to me over the phone proclaims, “Easy Popcorn Balls.”
Off the Beaten Plate: Korean BBQ Short Rib Tacos at Quinton’s Bar & Deli
October 23, 2014
What started as a temporary addition to the menu has now earned a permanent spot at Quinton’s: The Korean BBQ Short Rib Tacos.
Bite Sighs: Midnight madness pumpkin pie
October 21, 2014
The season of pumpkin spice everything is here.
Off the Beaten Plate: Dessert Spring Rolls at Zen Zero
October 15, 2014
You’re not likely to find anything like Zen Zero’s dessert spring rolls in Nepal or Thailand — or any traditional Asian cuisine, for that matter — but that doesn’t mean the bastardized confection isn’t delicious.
