Read “White Jacket Required” from PBS’ Jenna Weber

You guys…I wrote a book!

I still can’t quite believe it myself. But its written and hard cover and has that good, sweet smell of the printing press still clinging to the pages.

My biggest dream my whole life was to write this book. I used to sit and page through Ruth Reichl’s food memoirs over and over, hoping that maybe someday I could write my own.

It may come as a surprise to some that rolls aren’t a very popular form of sushi in Japan. Limited in scope to a few classics like kappa maki (cucumber), tekka maki (tuna) and this negitoro maki, most people eat rolls when they’ve eaten all their favorite nigiri sushi, but their stomach isn’t satisfied, and the bill is starting to balloon out of control.

It’s that time of year again! Time of year when kids get on the school bus in the morning with their lunchboxes and pencil cases, and arrive home around three in afternoon starving for a healthy (but tasty!) snack.

These banana bread milkshakes are my favorite afternoon treat. They’re perfect for little tummies after school!

Avoid Hunger Pangs with Tofu Avocado Salad

Tofu Avocado Salad

Food for me isn’t just about nourishing my body; it’s about feeding my soul. That’s why I’ve never been a fan of eating lettuce as a meal. Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against vegetables, it’s just that after I eat a salad I’m left feeling empty inside. It’s not a stomach rumbling kind of hungry; it’s a hunger pang that emanates from deep within my soul.

Sweeten Up Summer with Peach Shortcakes

A couple weeks ago, I was gifted a huge paper bag filled with sweet, ripe yellow peaches straight from my friend’s tree. Peaches are my favorite fruit and, growing up in the South, peach cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. For this though, I wanted to put a spin on traditional cobbler and make little shortcakes instead! With some freshly whipped cream and a sprig of mint, these peach shortcakes are the perfect ending to any late summer meal.

Use Your Odds and Ends for Vegetable Curry

Vegetable Curry

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Every now and then I force myself to explore to the bottom of my vegetable drawer to unearth ancient produce and recover the dregs from past trips to the farmers market. While some people may dread looking into the dark reaches of their fridge, I actually enjoy the challenge of coming up with delicious ways to use up every last veggie.

If you cook with recipes, I can understand your reticence to delve into the far reaches of your fridge. Aside from the occasional bag of unidentifiable mush, chances are, you’re not going to find a recipe that happens to include all the expiring vegetables you have on hand.

Explore Variations on Asparagus Soup for New Flavors

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I often get asked why my website is called No Recipes when in fact there’s nothing but recipes on it. It’s not that I have anything against recipes; it’s just that I don’t think anyone should feel bound by them.

Once you understand the underlying mechanics of why you add particular ingredients and prepare them in a certain manner, recipes become templates that you can customize to suit your tastes rather than a strict set of instructions.
