Valentine’s Day is a week away, and I’m starting to make plans. David and I usually eat in. I’ll probably roast up a little rack of lamb because it’s so perfect for two people. There’ll probably be some smoked salmon and champagne involved. Desserts’s a little harder. Last year I made crepes. This year I’m
It’s been a heck of a week for so many of us here on the east coast. David and I are fortunate. We lost four trees here at the rectory in Connecticut and were without power for five days. At our home in Pennsylvania there’s still no power, and we’ve got significant tree loss, but
For decades cooks have been making Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic like this: separate a couple of heads of garlic into cloves, stuff them into a chicken’s cavity, and then roast for an hour or so. Enclosed in the chicken pouch and its own papery casing, the garlic essentially stews during roasting and you
Is it me or is truffle oil making a come back? Either way, I know I’m using it more often in things like pizza dough, salad dressings, and pasta dishes. I love how just a teaspoon can bring a deep, earthy flavor to a dish. My mother-in-law gave me a Nigella Lawson cookbook for my
Even though spring isn’t officially here for another three solid weeks, the daffodils and crocuses are already making their appearance. And as I’m en route to Panama City, FL today, the flight attendant has just announced it’s 78 degrees in the northern part of the Sunshine State. So now’s as good a time as any

Before I moved to New York City, I thought Central Park was just another ‘must see’ tourist spot. But when I moved here last year, my perspective quickly changed. I understood the necessity of this park—the true meaning it held for the people who live here. I am eternally grateful to the people who had
This Slow Cooker Chicken Curry is just as delicious as it looks. Allaya of Salt and Paprika said it would be: easy to prepare, delicious and “mild but complex with deep flavors.” She wasn’t wrong!

As of January 2011, we Three Many Cooks are the weekly food columnists for USA Weekend magazine, a Sunday insert in some 20 million newspapers across the country. We didn’t make a splashy deal about it when it happened, but now that we’re all settled, we wanted you to know about it too. Our being
Makes 1 quart. This recipe comes form the book Speakeasy. Feel free to halve this recipe, although the infused vermouth makes a nice addition to other cocktails and even cooking. 2 Tablespoons herbes de Provence 1 (750 ml) bottle of dry vermouth (they recommend Noilly Prat) Place the herbes de Provence in a small saucepan

Hi! I’m Mike Vrobel from DadCooksDinner.com. I’m thrilled to be guest posting on ThreeManyCooks. Pam’s How to Cook Without a Book taught me the difference between following recipes and knowing how to cook, and was a major step on the journey to my own food writing. And so, without further ado… I’m a grill fanatic.
As a young cook, among the very first books I purchased were Nathalie Dupree’s—New Southern Cooking, Matters of Taste.
