October blackberries are totally a thing. Consider them a gift from a mild fall. We’ve been delighting in the occasional, kind of pricy, half pint of berries for a few weeks now. But since these late season berries are delicate and maybe even mushy, they are ideally suited to fall baking.

Let’s get this out of the way for the vocabulary sticklers, this isn’t exactly what the Accademia della Crusca would define as a “frittata” because it’s an egg dish prepared over potatoes, which are not a frittata ingredient. Many of you are probably taking off your glasses and saying, “it sounds more like a tortilla de patatas to me,” but we included vegetables in the eggs which is not traditional in the Spanish dish. In the end, we went with “frittata” because in the US, “tortilla” usually refers to the thing on the outside of a taco, so it’s confusing to talk about the other kind. read more »
One of the things I love most about eating seasonally is that it gives the seasons and the weather real meaning. Each week of the growing season brings new possibilities. Last year, an early spring meant favorite summer fruits showed up almost a month early. This year, things are arriving more or less on schedule, so we’re still waiting for strawberries and asparagus (though we do have ramps!). read more »
The fact is, I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. When I was single and living in Boston, one Valentine’s Day I stopped by the market to get a half pound of fish. The guys at the counter were like, “A half pound? Eating alone? (Awww, she’s eating alone.)” But really I didn’t mind. Even now, I think of it more as the fourth anniversary of our building’s basement catching fire. So, though Brian and I are definitely meant for each other, and I count myself lucky for finding such a great man, neither of us is particularly keen on the trappings of Valentine’s Day. We’re not that big on soul mates, chocolate, crafting, or candles. read more »
I tossed and turned thinking about this post last night. There are so many things to share and so many stories to tell. The short version is, I spent the weekend at the Big Summer Potluck, met a million fantastic, warm, funny, inspiring and talented bloggers, had a great time (delighted to be away from my girls for a little bit), and got inspired. Also, today is my birthday. read more »
Brooklyn Supper headquarters is starting to gear up for Thanksgiving. It’s our favorite holiday, and we take it pretty seriously. Though we’re expecting an intimate group this year we’re still going to do it up right. This week we blogged about a few Thanksgiving-worthy salad options over on Babble’s Family Kitchen. These recipes are also great for everyday dinner, or brown bag lunches. Now that chilly weather has arrived here in NYC I’m really enjoying the warmer side of fall foods. Here are three seasonal fall salads sure to add another layer of cozy to this wonderful time of year.
Green salad with bacon, pears and buttermilk dressing
Roast cauliflower salad with dried cherries and horseradish
Spicy roast squash salad with parsley
