Celery: Behold the heart of Thanksgiving 27.11.2019 Denver Post: Food
Every November, celery performs countless tasks: It perfumes the holiday turkey, lending moisture from the inside out; it’s the backbone of the stock in gravy; it adds bite and vegetal flavor to stuffing.

Bold, tangy peanut sauce and crisp vegetables upgrade a chicken sandwich 4.10.2019 Denver Post: Lifestyles
If you tend to think of peanut butter primarily as an ingredient to slather onto soft bread with jelly, or for eating by the spoonful out of the jar (guilty as charged -- though I don't double-dip), pairing peanut butter with chicken and other savory elements might strike you as unusual. However, there is a worldwide precedent for using the spread in such dishes.
Roasting fall fruit deepens their flavor and nourishes the senses 1.10.2019 Headlines: All Headlines
A medley of fresh fall fruit -- pears, grapes and figs — looks splendid on the table and is lovely served as a fruit salad. But roasted together, married with a sweet-tangy glaze, it rises to another level of beauty and lusciousness entirely. The heat of the oven softens and warms the fruit, making it juicier and deepening the flavors, while giving it a true comfort-food allure.

Give your barbecue sauce a summer upgrade with addition of fresh blueberries 22.7.2019 Denver Post: Lifestyles
Blueberries give this lip-smacking barbecue sauce multiple levels of fresh appeal. One hits you at first glance upon seeing its unexpected indigo color. Another - its flavor - is fresher than a traditional sauce, with the fruit lending its gentle, nuanced sweetness to the tangy-savory mix. That sweetness is backed up by a drizzle of molasses, so this sauce has none of the highly refined sugar that tops the ingredient list of most bottled barbecue sauces, nor the artificial additives.
How to push fresh herbs beyond the garnish: Use with abundance and abandon 15.7.2019 Headlines: All Headlines
Fresh herbs are one of the most straightforward and effective ways of elevating simple home cooking into something notable, and I cook with them almost daily. A few snips of chives on scrambled eggs, a shower of torn basil on tomato salads, sprigs of rosemary in the sauté pan for a steak, and a pinch of chopped parsley for the anchovy butter to top it. And let's not forget a fragrant peppermint stem, gently bruised to release its oils, as a garnish for my G&T.
With steaks, closer to the bone makes a difference 10.7.2019 Denver Post: Food
Louis Prima, the Italian-American singer and trumpeter, had an untold influence on the grilling of beef steaks when he sang (in the song similarly titled), “Closest to the bone, sweeter is the meat.” For decades, grill masters -- and chow-downers of their work — have sworn that steaks taste better bone-in than bone-out.

Fire up your summer with recipes from the season’s new grilling cookbooks 24.6.2019 Headlines: All Headlines
The food media spotlight seems to shine briefest on the genre I'll call "grilling cookbooks," for lack of a better designator. Top 10 lists delivered at year's end rarely include a title from the annual summer batch, although enough of us grill year-round to warrant sustained interest.

Ease up on the sugar. It’s time to start treating rhubarb like the vegetable it is. 20.5.2019 Denver Post: Food
In the first 1938 edition of "Larousse Gastronomique," an encyclopedic tome on gastronomy, editor Prosper Montagné advised treating and cooking rhubarb's leaves as you would spinach. While the effects may well have proved fatal (high concentrations of oxalic acid render the leaves toxic) and left me wondering, "Did they have recipe testers back then?" Montagné may have been on to something.
Turn your taco inside out for a nostalgic update on the hard-shell classic 20.5.2019 Denver Post: Food
I have a soft spot in my heart for hard-shell tacos. It's partly thanks to joyful childhood memories of meals whipped up from those boxed kits, but it's also because they taste lip-smackingly good with their warm, spiced meat; crisp, cool vegetables and crunchy, fried shells.
