The day has finally arrived! Last night I "flipped the switch" and Kitchen Parade's Weight Watchers recipe page is now sorted by Freestyle points!

For those who don't eat meat, ideas for Thanksgiving Vegetarian Entrées(Oh! I'm suddenly tempted to cook a turkey this weekend!) But when it's all over and you're wondering how to use up the last of the turkey, think "soup" – in fact, think "healthy soup"! Turkey Sweet Potato Soup is one of my oldest recipes, a healthy colorful soup made with sweet potatoes and leftover …

Technology Updates for

Dear Kitchen Parade Readers & Visitors,UPDATESUPDATE 11:00am Wednesday 4/21 I just now realized that some links are not working properly. For example, if you start on the Recipe Box page and click Mother's Day, you will reach not the Mother's Day recipes but instead the main holiday page, necessitating an extra click to get to Mother's Day. I'm checking to see if there is an automated way to re-instate these links but it's likely to require manual updates, page by page, link by link. FINAL UPDATE 6:00am Monday 4/19 So, yes, "we got it!" I've been testing multiple browsers all weekend long, all things look normal. The one exception is that I'm getting 'some' (but not all) reports that the Internet Explorer 6 browser is displaying pages without the proper formatting. I've checked stats, a small percentage of Kitchen Parade readers use this version of Internet Explorer which was released back in 2001. My site has always been quirky wi…

Recipe for Fresh Jellied Cranberry Sauce with Apple

Recipe for jellied cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries and softly gelled with the natural pectin in apples. A perfect recipe substitute for cylinders of canned cranberry sauce all jiggly-wobbly with high-fructose corn syrup. Quick and easy and nothing – nothing – like canned cranberry sauce. No gelatin so naturally vegan. The sad news that the pages of Gourmet shall go blank this month hit hard, like the loss of a family elder who seemed ready to live forever.Looking back, it was Gourmet’s 1986 or 1987 Thanksgiving issue that first revealed to me the concept of simple food cooked well, and in season, that expresses the food sensibility I call my own today. Who needs a can of mushroom soup when it’s so easy to slice mushrooms for Homemade Mushroom Soup? Who wants a fridgeful of salad dressing when it’s so fast to mix a quick vinaigrette right in the salad bowl?Twelve boxes (one for each month) of back issues are testament to a long affair with food magazines, Gourmet and its sur…

Considering Convenience:
My Favorite Kitchen Tools

Last night I had supper atop a glade in the middle of the Missouri Ozarks. The October evening was unseasonably warm, the sun hanging low above the surrounding oaks and cedars, the dog splashing in the creek at the bottom of the hollow. (That’d be the ‘holler’ if I lived in Mizz-ur-ra, not Mizz-ur-ee.) Over a small Indian fire, we cooked buffalo steaks, toasted whole-grain rolls, and roasted apples, all speared onto V-necked dogwood shoots and balanced over the embers by a heat-reflecting stone. Twas some feast.Twas some feast, yes, but one of considerable incongruity too, given that the buffalo and the rolls came from Whole Foods – but then were cooked entirely without benefit of modern convenience save a sharp knife and stick matches.It just goes to show, technology isn’t a necessity, it’s a convenience – which isn’t to say that we all don’t rely on these conveniences, that they don’t make our lives easier, even better.Here are ten conveniences that make my life in the kitchen better…
