Photo Essay: Lynd Fruit Farm

If there’s one thing I love about fall (beside watching Hocus Pocus and singing “This Is Halloween” at the top of my lungs) it’s apple picking. Ok, so apple picking has become an Instagrammed “Basic Betch” habit so pervasive it’s become self-mocking. But here in Columbus, apple picking is a tradition because of one place – Lynd Fruit Farm. Lynd’s is a massive orchard that grows everything from Honeycrisp, Golden…


Eggettes NY: A Modern Twist on a Nostalgic Treat

By Angeli Rafer   To be announced; currently based at the Hester Street Fair Hester and Essex Street New York, NY http://www.eggettesny.com/ $ There is nothing quite as powerful as the fond memories built around childhood foods. Maybe one day we’ll be able to rev up a time machine and zip on back to those exact moments when food memories were made–but until then, we just need to trust in…


Coconut Corn 10PM Soup

By Nandini Ahuja A few weekends ago, my parents were out of town, and I saw it as a golden opportunity to spend some time alone in the kitchen. I was planning to cook something straight from the random assortment of ingredients in the kitchen, a la Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook-Off. Side note: I was a vegetarian by the time this movie came out and even so, that cereal-encrusted chicken…


Avatar The Last Airbender Recipes: Fire Nation Spicy Chicken Gumbo

By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking: Fire by Kasabian Our second competitor for the Avatar, The Last Airbender recipe series is representing the Fire Nation. Sure the Fire Nation is portrayed as the overarching villain in the show, featuring an emotionally and physically scarred banished prince who has daddy issues and a twisted sense of honor. As the show progresses however, he slowly—like waiting for water to…


S’mores Ya Later

By Dayna Brownfield Maybe it’s the chocolate. Maybe it’s the camaraderie of sitting around a campfire. Or maybe it’s just that I like setting things on fire. OK, it’s probably the last one. But honestly, I really just enjoy lighting my food on fire – when the occasion calls for it. And yeah, I totally wrote my last post about the awesomeness of s’mores. But I’m back with s’mores news (hello…


Surprise Ingredient(s) Chili Recipe

By Lucy Morel Over the past few years, I’ve found myself accumulating a lot of random sauces, condiments and spices I’ve ended up only using once or twice.  I imagine you might be the same way. Like me, you probably bought a bottle of hoisin sauce for a special recipe that required one tablespoon, and then you never used it again. Or maybe you also have a giant bottle of…


bartaco: Gluten-Free Taco Heaven

By Gabriele Boland Very late in life, I have discovered my love of tacos. I blame a fear of the Taco Bell Chihuahua, and a loyalty to all things chicken fingers and french fries. (Seriously, that’s all I would eat at restaurants as a kid). But this year I have finally converted to both Chipotle, and just as life-changing, bartaco. For those meandering on the outskirts of New York City…


Avatar The Last Airbender Recipes: Water Tribe Mexican BLT Chicken Salad

By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking: Sailing to Nowhere by Broken Bells Recent events have reminded me of a show I loved when I was younger, and in fact still do now. It was at the same time silly and playful, but also deep and emotional. And it was anime. Doesn’t get much better than that. Of course, I’m talking about Avatar, The Last Airbender. And no,…
