Identifying Vegetables in a CSA Box

Just a quick public service post that Johnson’s Backyard Garden‘s website ROCKS! There are other CSA (community supported agriculture) programs in Austin, but my hunger for information makes Johnson’s the best in my book. They post a picture of the contents of their weekly delivery, and when you roll your mouse over each item, it is identified for you!

I recently tried another local CSA and the fruits and veggies came in a box without a list of what was in there. So I went to their website to find the …

Stetted Rocks a Raspberry Tattoo

My obsession with food tattoos continues. Isn’t Megan’s raspberry tattoo gorgeous?!

AEbleskivers, as they are spelled in Denmark, have really made their mark in the U.S. thanks to stores like Williams-Sonoma, that sell the pans needed to make these little guys.

Chocolate Covered Caramel Matzo, AKA Matzo Crack

It’s Passover and that means it’s time for my annual tradition of making matzo crack for the seder. Two years ago, I posted a recipe from The Mensch Chef. This year, I decided to make the version from David Lebovitz with coaching from Emily G. of Wild and Crazy Pearl.
Whether you spell it matzo, matzah, or matzoh — when you cover it with caramel, chocolate, and other goodies, it’s just plain delicious. It’s called crack because you crack the matzo squares into pieces and also because when you try some, …

SXSW: The Latest in Food Applications

I spent the past four days at South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi)┬áconference, and my mind is jam packed with new information about our crazy connected online world. Thanks to friends at Whole Foods, I also spent part of the weekend at the Techmunch, an amazing conference for food bloggers. Those interested in hearing more about Techmunch should check out Natanya Anderson’s notes on her new blog, Social Feasting.
The panel I’ve decided to share with you all is one I attended yesterday, a SXSWi core conversation called “How Technology is …
