Food News

As many of you know, Wednesdays are my favorite news days. It's the one day of the week when I actually bolt out of bed to read the paper. Here are my picks from today's food sections. You'll find that many of them have to do with comfort foods. It's finally cold and wintry here in Columbus--though this Michigan girl knows that Ohio doesn't have real winters--it's time to delve into some warm-you-from-the-inside fare. Good food is the perfect antidote to gray cold-weather skies!
  • Stuffed Turkey Burgers from The Splendid Table
  • Tortilla soup with chicken and lime from Betty Rosbottom. (I'd make anything she recommends!) From The Dispatch. I plan on substituting store-bought tortilla chips.
  • A baked German apple pancake from The Chicago Tribune. (They say this puffed pancake is a Chicago tradition, but I've had more than my fair share of fabulous apple pancakes at The Colonial Pancake House and Bibler's in South Bend. Sigh. Those were the days when Notre Dame was always winning their bowl games.)
  • Three chicken soup recipes from The Seattle Times. I'm especially intrigued by the Burmese Chicken-Coconut.

I'm looking forward to the weekend when I'll be able to try some of these recipes--maybe you are too!

I got 2 new bread baking books for Christmas, and I thought of you! Also, I bought the Low Fat Moosewood Cookbook for some healthier fares -- I'll let you know if I find anything noteworthy in it!

Oh yes, I've had many an apple pancake at the Colonial in South Bend!

I love Bibler's apple pancake....! My husband still talks about his trips to South Bend to visit me when I was in college. Sometimes I wonder if it was the Bibler's apple pancake. Do you have the recipe?
