This blog went public in July of last year with Alexis, Amanda, Leslie & Sarah. A lot has changed since then but I don’t want those early posts to go unnoticed now that we have a larger readership. Today I am dedicating the post to fall recipes & event-recaps from September & October 2010.
Let’s hop in our FSC Time Machine and take a look at some goodies- Enjoy! -Christina
First up, let’s start with our very first interview with FSC’s favorite bakers– Nick & Britin Foster of All Good Bakers! Things have changed quiet a lot for the pair (and FSC) since this piece was published!
Next up, I give you tips for roasting ridged squashes, such as a carnival squash (don’t peel them!), with a recipe for Gluten-Free Autumn Squash muffin!
We dedicated an entire week to APPLE RECIPES: Leslie gives you her favorite quick sauteed apples w/ oatmeal recipe, Sarah shares her adventures in apple butter, Alexis discusses her love for Bittman’s pancake recipe, Amanda has a yummy adaptation for apple pancakes from a boxed mix and I show you 4 ways to use apples: chips, juicing, in savory stuff like tacos and borscht soup!
Staying on the “theme week” concept we dedicated the week of Halloween week to the concept of “indulgences”; Alexis ponders the psychology & culture of eating indulgent foods within her own life, I explain how Miles’ food allergies has turned me into a binge-eating machine, Leslie shares her indulgent food secrets plus gives us an amazing Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Bread recipe, Amanda shares her “go to” cake or cupcake frrosting: Peanut Butter and to continue the theme of peanut butter & chocolate Sarah has a recipe for Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies.
Next up, we have a popourri of great fall recipes including:
Sarah shared beet hummus,
To wrap us our trip back in time let me recap some events:
Sarah & I went to the very popular Empty Bowls event in Troy (its happening again in 2012),
and I visited my friend Cal Patch of Hodge Podge Farm at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck.
and finally, I wrote a piece about my excitement and need for a grocery store in Downtown Troy as Sarah & I got to go on a super mini tour of Pioneer Market: Troy Food Coop before it opened…sadly its doors are already closed.
