What Would Betty Do Logo What to Do With Your Zucchini Harvest

Kid-Friendly Zucchini Fritters I’m kind of surprised that I’ve never posted this one before, considering that I’ve made it half a dozen times. I came up with this recipe a few years ago when the school sent home a massive zucchini from the garden. What does someone do with a 3-foot zucchini? Fritters. Fritters are […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Asparagus with Mozzarella and Prosicutto

The Best Asparagus Ever There are no photos of this recipe. Want to know why? Because it doesn’t last long enough to photograph.* I got this recipe from my friend Andrea who served it to me in London. I came home and immediately had to attempt it because I knew that there could be no […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Spicy Pickled Carrots

Easy Spicy Pickled Carrots I know that I’ve mentioned my possibly unhealthy love of pickles. I’ve┬ápickled green beans,┬ápickled cauliflower, and even sweet and sour “classic” cucumber pickles. This is the exact same brine recipe from the Sweet and Sour Pickles, but by sticking different flavorings in the jar, I ended up with a completely different […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Creamed Spinach

Ruth’s Chris Creamed Spinach Earlier this year, I went to Ruth’s Chris for the first time. And yes, it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten, but let’s face it, I’m rarely going to spend that kind of money on dinner. Now that my husband has perfected his sous vide blowtorch filet mignon, we’ve started […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo I’m Obsessed with Pickled Cauliflower

Pickled Cauliflower Like Betty, I’m a huge fan of pickled things. I can’t really beat a salty/tangy/chilled accompaniment to a meal, particularly in the summertime. I’ve made some regular old pickled cauliflower before, and while it was fine, it didn’t really inspire me. And then I stumbled across the pickled cauliflower recipe from Perbacco. I’ve […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Glazed Carrots

It’s November again, kids, and that means that this month’s recipes will all revolve around Thanksgiving. Today’s recipe: glazed carrots, another Alton Brown recipe from Food Network. I love this one, and honestly don’t know why I don’t make them more often throughout the year. Ingredients 1 pound carrots (approximately 7 medium), peeled and cut […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Purple Asparagus

Maybe I’m the last person on Earth to get the memo, but I just learned about purple asparagus. I was walking through the farmer’s market, as I do on Saturday mornings, when I came across a booth where they were giving out samples. Of vegetables. Now, that may not sound significant, but if you spend […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Sunchokes

When I started this “Try Something New” effort, many people suggested foods for me to try. Sunchokes — also known as Jerusalem artichokes — were recommended by Jim of Muddy Dog Coffee. I had to admit that I was skeptical. These are weird looking little things, looking like the love child of a ginger root […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Roasted Cauliflower

I like cauliflower… as long as it’s raw. Try as I might, I’ve just never been a fan of it when it’s cooked. Of course, it recently dawned on me that my objection to it might just be the fact that I’d always been served cauliflower that was overcooked. It was time to find out […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Try Something New: Brussels Sprouts

I don’t like Brussels sprouts. The thing is, I don’t know why I don’t like them. They’re part of the cabbage family, like… well, cabbage, but also broccoli and cauliflower. I like all of these veggies, yet I detest the Brussels sprouts. I know, it doesn’t make any sense to me, either. After I started […] Read More
