Wanna devour the competition? You can — if you don't mind your chips black n' blue

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/nov/11/224630/ One of the perks of being a food writer: Generally, my mail includes food. In this case, a giant box delivered Friday afternoon (an express shipment, no less), that was suspiciously light. So light, in fact, that I figured either I'd been shipped edible packing peanuts or some sort ...

My favorite homemade bread recipe

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/shenning/photos/2011/nov/9/224464/ On days like this one — clear and sunny and way too chilly — I absolutely love to bake my own bread. There's something about the smell and feel of a loaf or a pan of rolls straight from the oven. For a long time I was totally freaked ...

Sarah Henning

http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2007/nov/01/134797/ This was the first year my kiddo actually *went* trick-or-treating. We didn't hit downtown, we just went to a few friends' houses and on a loop of the neighborhood. He was too shy to knock on doors, so for about two-thirds of our mile loop last night, his answer ...
