We Try It: Pumpkin French Toast Bake

In theory, I knew that a casserole version of French toast was possible, but I’d never tried it. With a can of pumpkin puree hanging about my cabinet, I stumbled upon a recipe that claimed to be both easy and pumpkin pie-flavored. I decided to give it a go.

Post-Collegiate Gourmet: EGGS!

I have a thing for eggs. I mean, a serious thing for eggs. I have since I was five years old and learning how to scramble them, and now that I’m something resembling a grownup and know how to poach them, I love them even more. The ease of fitting them into my budget also […]

Omnomlet Month: The First Seven

About two weeks ago, I announced a new project: Omnomlet Month! It’s born mostly out of my total boredom with what I’d been doing in my kitchen lately, and also out of the fact that I love breakfast food. Well, after some pressing family issues-related delays, I am one week into the process, and it […]

A few days ago, I was standing in my kitchen, seriously lacking in inspiration as to what to make for dinner. I knew I wanted something breakfasty, but I also wanted mexican, which I could eat eight days a week. I love to cook, and I really enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. Sometimes that […]

Which Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?

So, did the chicken or the egg come first? It’s one of those questions that can send you around in logical circles until you have a headache. The chicken must have come first because it laid the egg, but the chicken came out of an egg so maybe that came first, but it was laid by another chicken, and […]

Morbid Curiosity: Tomato Soup Cake

Every once in a very long time, I come across a recipe that looks suspiciously like it might be awful, and to my complete surprise, it ends up being phenomenally good. Tomato Soup Cake was one of those instances.

One Quiche to Rule Them All

Attention Persephone readers: the Morbid Curiosity food column will not be appearing today. Why? Did Jen run out of old cookbooks with unusual recipes? Did she finally destroy her stomach lining? No! Of course not! It’s because I made a lovely quiche this week, and I’d rather talk about that instead. That sounds like a good […]

Humane Egg Production and the Dilemma of Compromise

While  many people are becoming more aware of the myriad reasons to abstain from meat, the egg question is much less explored by the mainstream. Unfortunately, egg-laying hens likely suffer the most and on the largest scale of any animals in the modern food industry. Given this fact, the news that The Humane Society of […]

Devilish Deviled Eggs

I actually was not on the deviled eggs bandwagon until I met my now-husband. He loves them, and they are his go-to party food for pot lucks and the like. They are remarkably easy, once you get the technique down, but if you do a nice presentation they can look pretty fancy.

My Evolution Into a Foodie

Every family has a picky eater, the kid who spends at least three hours at the dinner table, surreptitiously transferring food to the dog or her brother’s plate or the trash can under the kitchen sink (a daring move and, if you cloak it under a napkin and your mom doesn’t notice, well worth the […]
