We're deep into June, now, which is a lovely thing in the kitchen. The produce is exciting, ripe and flavorful, but it's not too hot to spend a few minutes by the stove. What's cooking from our stacks of old Gourmets? Some seriously good stuff. Merry Gourmet (Blackberry Buttermilk Cake, 2009) Looks luscious, right? How about these baked eggs for an easy brunch?

When I set about making this recipe, I didn't expect to be seduced. I wanted something simple and vegetable-based for dinner, but I didn't think it would be sexy. I underestimated this recipe. These leeks are luscious, braised just a few minutes in good homemade stock (and, of course, a little butter.) A sprinkle of fresh thyme and lemon zest, coarsely ground pepper, and sea salt bring the flavors forward. Of course, this could work as a side dish under baked chicken thighs or a chunk of artic char, but on a weeknight during this already-busy month, a gooey spoonful... Continue reading

I've been obsessed with biscuits for a long time. There's something magical about them, turning flour and butter into something hot and pillowy, rich and light. One of my favorite brunch places always has a long line, but you can buy a biscuit from the counter to eat while you wait outside, and that almost makes the line bearable, even at 10am on a frigid January morning. These drop biscuits are a snap to make—cut the butter into the dry ingredients, mix in good strong cheddar (I used half asiago and half orange extra-sharp) and sliced scallions, fold in the...

I always turned greedily through the pages of each new December issue of Gourmet, daydreaming of creamed butter and sugar, cinnamon and cloves, gingerbread and festive dinner tables. It's a month of decadence, of champagne and crispy latkes with homemade applesauce, of my mother's cioppino and Oregon pinot noir, of braised brisket or short ribs or fancy roasts. Gourmet had menus for all sorts of festive occasions. But in December I also start needing something fresh and light for the days between holiday parties. Gourmet was there for us then, too, with recipes like this delicious salad of bitter greens... Continue reading
