Recipe Highlight: Roasted Roma Tomato Dip

Over the weekend, I slow-roasted a whole tray of Roma tomatoes from the garden. Last year, one fan last year called Roasted Roma Tomatoes "tomato candy"! And then? I mixed a quick Roasted Roma Tomato Dip, just one way to use the roasted tomatoes. So good! Here's how to roast Roma tomatoes, Roasted Roma Tomatoes , including the Roasted Roma Tomato Dip. ABOUT THIS "RECIPE HIGHLIGHT" This is the first of a very occasional series of posts that highlights an adaptation of a Kitchen Parade recipe from years past.

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian family and the many Canadian readers and visitors who pop into Kitchen Parade and A Veggie Venture for Thanksgiving recipes!

This Year, Let's Give the Gift of Words

So what if there were a present that required no wrapping? no fancy ribbons? no assembling? no mailing? not even the swipe of plastic? And what if there were a present to last a lifetime? a present to explain a life? a present to cradle a legacy? And what if we could secure this gift, right now, this very moment? This year, let's give the Gift of Words, the written, the listened. JUST WRITE: Words jotted a thought or paragraph at a time, the short stories and local color of our lives. JUST LISTEN: Over the holidays, the new year, stories really listened to, even when heard many times before. Merry Christmas, All, Merry Christmas. "SNOW, SNOW. BEAUTIFUL SNOW." By Judy Bridges, writing coach at Red Bird Studio and author of Shut Up & Write! . My mother stands at the window, smiling out at the flaky stuff. I am four years old and already I've acquired the habit from her. Our sing-song voices share the joy, and it's years before I give it any th

Incurable Epicureans in St. Louis

A menu for the Incurable Epicureans in St. Louis, featuring recipes calling for seasonal vegetables and fruits and local Missouri products. (skip straight to) ~ Why A Hundred Mile Dinner? ~ ~ What Does "Local" Mean, Anyway? ~ ~ Hundred Mile Dinner Menu for St. Louis ~ Why A Hundred Mile Dinner? For Regular Readers You'll be wondering what's up, why I'm deviating from the standard recipe column. Here's the scoop. In late May, the Kitchen Parade and A Veggie Venture recipes that follow will be cooked by a supper club called the Incurable Epicureans (IE), a food-loving subset of the Missouri Mushroom Society . Each year, the group cooks four theme-focused dinners for 40 to 50 people. Over the last 12 - 15 years, the Incurable Epicureans have focused dinners on the work of chefs and food luminaries such as Julia Child, James Beard, MFK Fisher, Alice Waters and most recently, Marcella Hazan.

Weight Watchers, PointsPlus & Kitchen Parade

This week Weight Watchers overhauled its points system for the first time in thirteen years. Officially, zip-zap the old points are gone and have already been replaced by new PointsPlus values. So far, I like the new PointsPlus program a bunch but here at Kitchen Parade, we like to eat our cake and have it too! Here's what to expect during the next few weeks. (WATCH THIS PAGE for FURTHER UPDATES I'll post a link to this page in the sidebar and add information as the transition progresses.) January 3 Update: I've started to update recipes with the new PointsPlus point values. Since Kitchen Parade recipes already err toward healthful, fiber-rich and low-carb ingredients, so far, most recipes are increasing by a single point, some stay the same. Now that the holidays are over, I can devote more time to the updates; once I get some down the road, I'll create a new page with recipes sorted by the new points. MY APOLOGIES first, however, to readers who don'
