    Trisha Yearwood is someone who needs no introduction. In addition to being a three-time Grammy Award winner, she’s also an Emmy Award winner for her beloved cooking show. The 17th season of “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen” is now airing on Food Network.

    How a Librarian and a Food Historian Rediscovered the Recipes of Moorish Spain

    “Take large fine-tasting carrots, lightly scrape their skins, cut them in half lengthwise, and then split each half into two pieces.” For centuries, that’s as far as any cook could get when preparing “A dish [of carrots in sauce]” from Ibn Razīn al-Tujībī’s Fiḍālat al-Khiwān fī Ṭayyibāt al-Ṭaʿām wa-l-Alwān (Best of Delectable Foods and Dishes from al-Andalus and al-Maghrib), a cookbook composed in Tunis around 1260. The rest of the recipe (more on that later), together with dozens of others, disappeared sometime after the late 1600s. Most of the cookbook’s 475 recipes survived in copies. Yet that maddeningly incomplete carrot

    Kid-Friendly Weeknight Recipes – The New York Times

    The other day, my younger daughter, who is not quite 2, was given a piece of homemade blueberry pie. She screamed in agony. How dare someone offer her pie! As of now, my children are both picky and mercurial about food, a terrible combination. This is very annoying, and very common: One of the questions I get asked most often through this newsletter is what to feed kids who won’t eat anything. (Another one: what to pack for school lunches. A tedious and eternal struggle.) I consulted Jessica Grose, who writes the excellent NYT Parenting newsletter (and who said she

    Make gameday a culinary hit with these six football food recipes

    It’s not enough to open a bag of chips for your fall football viewing. Don’t you want to make each game a culinary event? There are so many great choices.
