Date Nut Bread

Date Nut Bread

Have I mentioned how it has crossed my mind to turn Shoot To Cook into an all-baking blog? Don’t worry, I’m not going to but it sometimes is tempting. If it weren’t for my fear of my slowing metabolism in old age, the scourge of carbs, and my general concerns about obesity I’d eat nothing […]

Blueberry Lemon Corn Muffins

Blueberry Lemon Corn Muffins

A day or so ago I got into a discussion about favorite diner foods. Lots of people chose things like biscuits and gravy, grilled cheese, etc. For me, however, my favorite diner food memory goes back to this terrible terrible diner in Central PA that we used to frequent before we were old enough to […]

Sweet and Sticky Lemon Bar Recipe

One of the things that is really great about my job is that I get to travel all over the country making pictures. After a slow start to the year I have been on the road a good deal lately which unfortunately means that I haven’t been spending as much time in the kitchen. Too […]

Warm Weather and Applesauce

Growing up in a household with a garden ruined my palette for lots of store bought foods and produce. And the funny thing is that for the most part I didn’t even know that everyone in the world didn’t have fresh vegetables for most meals and that they didn’t have home made strawberry jam in […]

Companion and Niche Blogging Event

It’s approaching 9pm last night and I’m in the kitchen attempting to saute shredded brussel sprouts while at the same time keeping an eye on my vegetable soup. This is made slightly difficult because I have the front of the stove half-way open so I can keep an eye on the bruschetta that I have […]

Superbowl and Cupcakes

Superbowl and Cupcakes

The day after the Superbowl is always a sad one for me, because it means that football is over until the fall. This means that I will no longer have an excuse to drink beer and eat badly on a Sunday morning (at least until I find a new excuse, that is). The funny thing […]

Apple Galette Recipe

Apple Galette Recipe

A couple of our neighbors have started having weekly dinners in their apartment for the tenants of our building. For the inaugural dinner I volunteered to bring bread, and of course made it rather than going across the street to the bakery to get it. Everyone was impressed as I knew they would be. To […]

Crispy Oatmeal Cookies with Sea Salt

Crispy Oatmeal Cookies with Sea Salt

Ok, so here’s the deal. Rather than stumbling around simply trying to feed me and Dr. Fiance on a daily basis and learn how to cook along the way, I decided that I need a little direction. Each week I’m going to try to tackle one soup, one main entree, one side dish and one […]

Creme Brulee with Grand Marnier

Sometime back in 2000 or 2001 I ended up having dinner at the Odeon in Tribeca. I was there with a group of friends, eating, drinking, and laughing, perhaps celebrating a birthday. David Cross was at the table next to us, although this was pre-Arrested Development so I only knew him as the guy from […]
