Add Some Kale and Bacon to Your Spaghetti

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Kale is in season right now and this quick and easy pasta dish is my absolute favorite way to eat it. Alone, kale can taste quite bitter and has a tough, fibrous stalk that usually deters people from this healthy green…

Stock Up on Proteins with Carrot Salad

Carrot Salad Recipe with Avocado and Tuna

It’s the New Year and many of us are well into making amends for the dietary sins we committed over the holidays. Unfortunately produce isn’t exactly at the height of freshness in January, and the cold weather demands something a little more filling than a leafy salad.

Channel Your Inner Julia Child with Beef Bourguignon

For years, I had been hesitant to make this typically heavy and rich beef dish. I prefer to eat lighter dishes that energize and fill me up without weighing me down. Beef stew? No thank you.

Braise Ham with Red Wine for Extra Flavor

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I’ve never been a big fan of ham. It’s often salty, seldom tender, and quite frankly boring. About the only thing going for it is that it’s a pre-seasoned hunk of meat that will feed a lot of people, which is probably why it’s been a popular choice for parties.

If you can get past the salt though, ham does have an incredible amount of flavor locked up in the meat, which is why I like using it in soups and stocks. One way to quell the salt is to braise it in a sweet liquid.

Over the past few years, the world of food bloggers has blossomed into a thriving global community of foodies spreading their passion through stories, photos and recipes. Whether through good writing, drool-worthy photography, or a rockin’ good recipe, not a week goes by when I’m not blown away by someone’s post.

I really don’t like awards and “best of” lists because when it comes to food is there really a “best” of anything? But every now and then, there comes a post that sticks out, and the guy who doesn’t use recipes makes an exception to his rule. Here are 5 of my favorite food blog posts from this year (in no particular order).

Jenna Weber Shares Family Christmas Traditions

I was always the kid who found my Christmas presents.

Every single year, I would make it a personal mission to find, shake and tear little holes in the holiday paper that my mother so lovingly covered all of my brother’s and my gifts with. On Christmas Eve, when we opened all of our gifts, I would fake surprise as I opened American Girl accessories and a shiny new pair of rollerblades. Patience has never been my most admirable trait.

Celebrate Japan’s Oshogatsu Holiday with Ozoni

Ozoni

Marc shares his family's recipe for Ozoni below

The harvest is over, winter has set in, and we’re reaching the end of the calendar year. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, it’s a time when decorations go up, children receive gifts, and families gather together to share a meal.

Japan’s equivalent is called Oshogatsu, and it’s celebrated on the first day of the New Year. While Western influences have turned Christmas into a pseudo-holiday in Japan, Oshogatsu is still the holiday when families head over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house.
