New from the archives: three fresh posts (Recipes: farfalle or rotini pasta with spinach and sausage, pear and parsnip soup, football season chili)

Football season chili

Since early summer, I've been wandering through the archives, updating posts from the first two years of The Perfect Pantry, in the days before I photographed the food I cooked.

I'm really having fun cooking some of my favorite recipes again, with some of my favorite pantry ingredients, and while I'm at it, I'm updating old links and adding new ones, too.

Albornia de chayote

Since early summer, I've been wandering through the archives, making a few dishes each month from the first two years of The Perfect Pantry, in the days before I photographed the food I cooked.

I'm really having fun cooking some of my favorite dishes again, with some of my favorite pantry ingredients, and while I'm back in the archives, I'm also updating the recipes and links.

This month's posts feature eggs, barley and instant couscous, and the recipes are ones you might be able to incorporate into the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend of eating and entertaining.

New from the archives: four fresh posts (Recipes: Floribean chicken chili, rotini with spicy meat sauce, tomato-nectarine chutney, kicked-up gingerbread)

Tomato nectarine chutney

Every month since early summer, I've been traveling back in time, making a few dishes from the first two years of The Perfect Pantry, in the days before I photographed the food I cooked.

I'm really having fun cooking some of my favorite dishes again, with some of my favorite pantry ingredients, and while I'm back in the archives, I'm also updating the recipes and links.

This month's posts feature chili paste with garlic, tomato paste, cider vinegar and crystallized ginger.
