Cooking with Lindsay

Personal

Every now and then my partner and I decide to celebrate a certain food for the month. We usually forget about it but when we remember, it’s a lot of fun. In an effort to expand our palettes, we try to make different dishes with the food and experiment with different types. In the past we’ve had a months devoted to mangoes, hummus, grapefruit, sweet potatoes, spinach, cantaloupe, watermelon, and kiwi.

Here are some pictures from previous months.

This month is pear month. I purchased eight varieties of pears for us to sample and decide on our favorites. Who knew that there were even eight varieties of pears in the first place?


(For those who are curious, the pears from left to right are: seckel, bosc, red d’anjou, comice, forelle, concorde, bartlett, green d’anjou.)

For Valentine’s Day, I attempted a pear pie. I visited the ever-trusty, AllRecipes.come and found a well ranked Pear Pie. It smelled great while it was cooking and certainly looked the part when it came out.

But then Rich and I had some. It tasted pretty bad. I got the sympathy eyes from him, the ones that said, “Sorry, Lindsay, another baking flop. Score one for the kitchen.”

For some reason, I cannot bake for the life of me. I enjoy it and I get really excited to try out recipes, but the end result is just miserable, especially cookies. Cookies should be simple, right? Not for me. All cookies turn into hard, tasteless discs.

Oh well, I’ll stick to what works for me: photography. Even if they taste terrible, no one can tell from the pictures!

How is it October already?! I can’t believe how quickly the year has flown by. This month is officially the busiest month I’ve ever had. There are so many incredible weddings that you’ll see splashed across the blog soon. And if you know someone getting married in 2012, tell them to get going because I’m already halfway to my wedding limit for next year. Crazy, right?!In honor of this fabulous month devoted to baseball, fall colors, and All Hallows’ Eve, I’m giving you some digital candy (if you come by my place I’m happy to give you real candy too, but I’ll expect a trick). Candy corn gets a bad rap. Granted, it tastes just like a bun ...

I Ran to Stop MS
Yesterday I ran the first race of my life – Philadelphia's half marathon. It was completely exhilarating. The crowds were awesome and my mix totally kept me going. I was singing (or at least mouthing the words) through most of the run. The end result is one small blister and a whole lotta pride. I can't wait to do it again. Maybe a marathon; who knows?My time was 1:51:53! I ran it in under 2 hours (a secret goal).I want to thank the following people for donating to stop MS, a cause that is very close to my heart.Julie & Coye CheshireTim MahoneyKaren & Paul HarrisRich WhiteLauren HancockLiz BrennanLinda DemmlerEllie & Ali Ja ...
