This year’s soup-er bowl

With my team, the New England Patriots, out of the playoffs and no prospect of a Super Bowl appearance for one of the first times in two decades, I’m drowning my sorrows — not...

Harvest of the Month: January

On a cold, gray day, what is better than waking up to a warm bowl of oatmeal, or baking fresh, warm bread for dinner? As we ring in the new year, we celebrate whole...

Something savory on the menu

Christmas dinner was a bit smaller this year, but that doesn’t mean you cannot go all out with helping prepare a fantastic side for dinner. This year I contributed to the people within my bubble...

Who says you can’t popover?

My wife and I used to have a naughty routine. (Get your minds out of the gutter.) We’d toss our diets aside on Friday mornings for a popover at Pie in the Sky in...

Harvest of the Month: Winter Squash

This December, we celebrate winter squash. Butternut squash sit stacked neatly in my kitchen on a three-foot-long metal shelf. They wait there, precariously balanced, for me to pluck them off one by one through...

A toast for the holidays

In preparation for going back to visiting Island bars, I have been going through many different mixed drinks to try out during quarantine. I discovered this drink by accident, mixing a small nip of...

Let them eat pumpkin cake!

When quarantine started, I occupied my time cooking more meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This year's Thanksgiving has many firsts, and I decided to contribute by making a dessert with a nutty twist. I...

Little house, big flavor

Brook Katzen is a man with a mission to make sure an Island staple keeps on going. Little House Café, founded 10 years ago, continues to be an asset to year-rounders when many other...

Broccoli-palooza

My obsession with finding the best broccoli salad began shortly after I discovered Cronig’s had closed down its salad bar due to COVID-19 some months ago. Remember their broccoli salad, teaming with bacon, blue...

Turkey and sides and pies, oh my!

Imagine: Thanksgiving Day, 2020. You've just woken up to the coziest of autumn mornings — a crisp breeze in the air, a hot mug of coffee in the works. You'll spend the day surrounded...

Caesar pleaser

Who doesn’t love a Caesar salad? It’s one of my favorite things to order when we eat out, and then I can pretend like I “forgot” to tell the server to hold the croutons,...

Every day is a salad day

Beautiful red cabbage (which is actually purple) will brighten any dish. This recipe is a version of a salad that I used to make at the Roadhouse. It’s important to use a great blue...

Groovy smoothie

Remember the days when smoothies were a whole lot like a milkshake with a little fruit thrown in? Apparently those days are long gone. I’ve tried green smoothies, brown smoothies, pink smoothies, white smoothies,...

Tackling meatloaf sandwiches

Whenever we go to an old-time diner, the first thing I look for on the menu is a meatloaf sandwich. To me, it’s better than a burger because of the peppers and onions cooked...

Home cooking at Pawnee House

When you find a restaurant that appeases all the diets, you’ve stumbled into something special. So when rumor had it that an “all vegan” restaurant was opening in Oak Bluffs where the old Park...

In season

The Island’s growing season begins late and ends late. By the end of September the nights are cool, but corn is still growing down at Morning Glory Farm in Edgartown. It’s the perfect time...

Harvest of the Month: Tomatoes

One ubiquitous fall smell in my house is of simmering tomatoes. All week I pluck tomatoes from my garden as they ripen, and collect them in a bowl. I also go to local farms...

Homegrown hops

It's nice to know that COVID-19 hasn't wreaked havoc on this year's local hop harvest, and it's even nicer knowing that Hopps Farm Road Pale Ale will be available at Offshore Ale around Sept....

Fall fresh

The touch of cream in this soup is what makes it a bisque. There’s only a small amount, but it adds a smooth and velvety texture. Butternut squash — grown on the Vineyard and...

Try this $9 recipe: Focaccia

The Vineyard specializes in gourmet and interesting foods. Culinary experiments are encouraged, if not demanded, especially in the summer. While restaurants strive to new heights, however, so do their grocery bills. So here we’re...
