The Only Sides You Need for Your St. Paddy's Day Dinner

Whether you’re planning on Corned Beef, Irish Stew, or another traditional dish for your St. Patrick’s day feast, these are the only two side dishes you’ll need on the table.

Colcannon is a lesser-known Irish accompaniment, which is really a shame because it’s just about the most delicious mash-up you can imagine. Creamy mashed potatoes meet tender green cabbage and buttery sautéed leeks. You can cook up the greens while the potatoes are boiling, and everything comes together in a snap. Simplicity never tasted so good!

Get Creative in the Kitchen with Boston's Best CSAs

It doesn't matter if you're vegan, paleo or an unrepentant carnivore – we've got the CSA for you!

A sample CSA Box from Farmers to You

If like most climate scientists, you believe humans are the reason the ice caps are melting, you’ve probably given some thought to your footprint. There’s a lot to consider - energy, waste and, of course, your food choices. Maybe you’re looking for ways to do your part, or at least avoid contributing to the demise of the human race, but veganism just isn’t your thing. Or, maybe you’re a vegetarian looking to further decrease your footprint. Whatever your lifestyle aspirations, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) may be your ticket to a clearer conscience.

Crepes for Crepe Cake

This recipe is adapted from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and makes enough crepes for one 12-layer crepe cake with 2 to 3 trial crepes to get the hang of it (which will still be delicious and should be considered snacks for the chef). 

Meet the Dessert Equivalent of Love at First Sight

There's a romantic holiday just around the corner, and there's something about romance that tends to spark a little creativity in some of us.

Baking not your thing? Not to worry. If you’d still like to make an impressive dessert for dinner guests – or that special someone – we have the answer. The Crepe Cake. Baking prowess is replaced with simple patience — the patience to stand at the stove for a bit and master the art of the crepe.

Katharine Hepburn's Brownies Are Just As Iconic As She Is

Just as tastes change over time, so do recipes — even the humble brownie. The original 1896 publication of The Boston Cooking School Cookbook by Fannie Farmer included a recipe for “Brownies,” but with molasses instead of chocolate! It was essentially what we would refer to today as a “blondie.” By the 1930 edition, two brownie recipes appeared in Fanny Farmer’s cookbook, and their order showed the preference of the time — with chocolate in the lead.

Bored of Burgers? Grill Pizza This Weekend!

I'm always hard-pressed to turn on my oven in the summer. I'm also pretty obsessed with cooking anything and everything possible on the grill. That naturally leads to a lot of meat and veggie dishes. Of course, there are endless combinations of meat and vegetables to keep me grilling all summer long, but sometimes I want something a little different. Something that's vegetarian but still a hearty meal. That's where grilled pizza comes in.
