Technicolor Salad – Israeli Couscous, Cabbage, and some Crunch!

Posted on 2015-06-17 By

You may have noticed that things have been very sugary in the Lindsay Cooks kitchen of late.  Between the little pieces of Peppermint Caramels I nabbed here and there to the Espresso-Chocolate cookies, I have been in need of a something healthy and filling.

Peppermint Caramels (Polkagriskola)

Posted on 2014-12-01 By

It didn’t take long after moving to Park Slope, Brooklyn, before I noticed the pervasive neighborhood trends.  You may have heard about the overbearing mommies or that the locavore movement is standard fare.  Though I am grateful for the latter, it is two trends I least expected for which I am the most thankful.

Posted on 2010-12-26 By

Every year, our Christmas breakfast consists of the same five components.  Each is integral to our family tradition, which leaves little room for modifications.  The traditional morning feast consists of grapefruit, orange juice, breakfast sausage, Merks Coffeecake and scrambled eggs.  This year, I thought the eggs could benefit from a dose of brown butter, and…

Homemade Dulce de Leche

Posted on 2010-12-22 By

In college, one of my closest friends, Arielle, had a deep love for Argentina.  If that love had one physical form, I think it would be dulce de leche. She always had a jar in our fridge, and I grew to love the endless combinations that dulce de leche enhanced.  Peanut butter on toast?  Top…
