How refreshing

 Looking for a quick, easy, refreshing and luscious dessert? Look no further, the Meyer Lemon Posset is here. This incredibly simple recipe with the strange name consists of just whipping cream, sugar and lemon juice. After coming to a bare simmer, it sets up into a hard-to-describe ethereal something. It’s beyond whipped cream, but it’s…

Just Say No. . . to Snickers Salad

Contrary to our Midwestern roots, the Three Points cooks will not be adding Snicker Salad to the Thanksgiving table this year (or any year). The New York Times reveals that the top Google searches for recipes in all 50 states this week place Nebraska (Kate’s home state) at the center of the Snickers Salad belt….

Mulberry Street

Originally posted on Three Points Kitchen:
I started a trend. After noticing that the mulberry tree on the corner a couple of blocks away was heavy with fruit, I returned with a container.  In the short time spent plucking berries from branches hanging low over the owner’s wrought-iron fence and across  the sidewalk, a parade…

The Little Fig Tree That Could

This Midwestern-born girl picked her share of backyard produce growing up, but nothing compares to the bounty I’ve had the luxury of sampling in my Brooklyn neighborhood. I’ve hardly had to stroll past the doorway to do so.  First it was the grape vines that climbed, untended, up the entire back of our brownstone, producing heavy…

Parm Squad to the Rescue

I am a member of the Special Parm Squad. Just saying that out loud makes me feel like I’ve taken on superpowers, or become a member of some super-elite security detail. In reality, it means that I’ve been assigned by my local food coop (where all members share in running the joint) to the team…

Carolina on my Mind

When our friend Angela entertains guests on her home turf–the beautiful and vibrant Charleston, South Carolina–she channels centuries of Southern hostesses and does hospitality proud. Perchance, on steroids.

Sweet Child of Mine

Oh, what fun this will be, celebrating Julia Child’s 100th birthday (August 15)! The legions who loved her (and love her still) are prepping, starting with a wonderful French Chef/Guns N’ Roses mashup from WGBH (the Boston station that started it all by deciding that a 6’2″, middle-aged woman with a funny voice and no…

Mulberry Street

I started a trend. After noticing that the mulberry tree on the corner a couple of blocks away was heavy with fruit, I returned with a container.  In the short time spent plucking berries from branches hanging low over the owner’s wrought-iron fence and across  the sidewalk, a parade of passersby stopped, gawked, and even…

Any Grieven Day

After some additional research, I discovered that grieven can actually replace bacon on a BLT, or it can be used as an alternative to bacon bits on a salad. The thing is, grieven never lasts long enough to try.

Welcome Home

“Bread, that this house may never know hunger. Salt, that life may always have flavor. And wine, that joy and prosperity may reign forever. Enter the Martini Conradt castle.” We interrupt this movie scene to offer congratulations to Kate on the move to her first home. We look forward to many new kitchen adventures, for…

Chocolate Tour NYC

Today’s birthday girl, Lisa, had to return home to North Carolina for her actual celebration date, but not before getting a serious chocolate fix during a few days in NYC. Lisa’s first request, a return to Brooklyn’s The Chocolate Room for flourless chocolate cake in a pool of raspberry sauce—“sex on a plate” in her…
