Well, after my insistence last week that I was ready and excited for spring, the weather in New York City has taken a turn toward the chilly again. I can’t say I’m too disappointed! I wanted to cook something this week that would pay homage to the last days of the winter: when it’s almost warm enough to not need a jacket when the sun is up, but the nights are still cold and have me craving food that’s rich, [...]

It’s here! What seems like a fleeting moment in the course of a year is finally upon us and will fade as quickly as it appeared. Now, I am generally a fan of fall, with its cooling weather, falling leaves, and delicious hot drinks to warm us. However, these next few weeks are by far some of my favorite in Southern California.

A few weeks ago, thanks to a good friend, I had 10 lbs. of pomegranates delivered to me.  I didn't want to waste them, nor did I want to make that much pomegranate juice, so I decided to turn them into a syrup. Well,  pomegranate syrup is delightful, but being gluten-corn free, there didn't seem to be a lot I put with the syrup, so I created something else, pomegranate fruit strips. The recipe will be below, but let me [...]
