Fresh, light summer curry

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/07/272996/ All winter long, it seems, I made curry. Thai curry, to be exact. I wrote about a few of them in this space. They were hearty and often served over sweet potatoes for extra nutrition, because I’m a little weird like that. And I may be one of the ...

The case of the unloved asparagus

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/may/01/272744/ Sometime between last spring and this spring, my kiddo totally forgot that he loves asparagus. Last year, he’d eat the green or purple stalks, no questions asked. But this year? No, no, no, no, get that away from me, no. That’s a direct quote. I’m sure anyone with kids/grandkids/imagines ...

CSA season is upon us!

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/24/272389/ It’s nearly May, and you know what that means, don’t you? CSA time! For the past several years, I’ve been documenting how I use the CSA (community supported agriculture) box I get weekly through the spring, summer and fall from [Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance][1]. If you are new to ...

Healthy doughnuts, part 2

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/17/271993/ When [I last wrote about doughnuts][1], I told you I was really, really trying not to make doughnut making a “thing” for me. I’d had a doughnut pan literally for years and had avoided using it because I was sort of afraid of over-using it, if you know what ...

Healthy soft serve ice cream

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/09/271646/ Like many kids, my 5-year-old is very much into the PBS show “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” which, for those of you who don’t have kids, is a cartoon spin-off of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” As you can expect from a pedigree like that, “Daniel Tiger,” as the kiddo calls it, is ...

Strawberries sans shortcake

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/apr/02/271349/ It’s not that often that I write about snacks on this blog, and I’m trying to make up for that this year, with a few more ideas on what to eat when you’re hungry but not eating a meal proper. Today’s particular snack is one I’ve been having after ...

The perfect pad thai

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/27/271105/ I’ve been a longtime lover of pad thai. A connoisseur, really. It’s one of my go-to treat foods after a marathon or ultramarathon. I’ve devoured it in probably every state I’ve ever visited. Honestly, if a restaurant has it on its menu, I’ll try it at least once, no ...

That's a wrap, winter

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/20/270746/ Sometimes, especially times like these when we are just starting a new season (hello, spring!), I end up taking an old favorite and changing it up a bit. You know, so it looks all fresh and shiny but pretty much tastes the same (because, as you know, I’m a ...

Blueberries get a faux summer treatment

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/12/270358/ I keep pretending the glimpses of warm weather we’ve been getting will actually last. And then Mother Nature comes in and rains (or snows) on my parade. She might have control over the weather, but I have control over the kitchen. And this week I wanted a summer dessert. ...

Healthy doughnuts (seriously)

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/06/270079/ I love to bake. LOVE it. Thus, I probably have every type of baker’s tool lying around somewhere in my kitchen cabinets — Silpat, candy molds, springform pan, French spatula, etc. And I’ve used everything I own at one time or another save for a single item that I’ve ...
