At a reception held at the Rosenzweig Arts Center during the most recent Decorative Arts Forum I could hardly tear myself away from the table where a huge bowl was stacked with twisted strips of brown sugar bacon.
Matzoh ball soup is on my mind today for two reasons: The fall weather brings cold nights and thoughts of hot soup, and one of my oldest friends came through town and spent the night with Terry and me.
The Hitching Lot Farmers' Market in Columbus has officially closed for the season.
Recently I went through my five cookbook shelves (each with about 50 books) and took some to the library for the book sale.
In Columbus, I have noticed what I consider a high number of beekeepers and honey gatherers.
Now that you've cooked all of your sweet potato leaves with last week's recipes, it's time to get to the tuber itself.
I'd said I was going to write about sweet potatoes for this week. They are everywhere right now and very important to Southern cooking. However, I have come across references to cooking with sweet potato leaves twice in the past week so thought that this is a trend we in the Golden Triangle can jump on and leave kale far behind.
I was a little north of Columbus last weekend and found the farmers' market in Jasper, Alabama. We picked up some delicious corn, little yellow squash that were so tender, some habanera pepper jelly (can't wait!), a few cucumbers, some tomatoes (not quite prime) and a jar of chow chow.

A few nights ago at a reception I tasted a bright and fresh-tasting cucumber soup that Fred Kinder had brought. It was served from a pitcher and poured into clear plastic shot glasses.

Summertime entertaining and salsa go together like, well, chips and salsa. With all of the fresh ingredients available at the Hitching Lot Farmers' Market in Columbus and other area farmers' markets, now is the time to forsake the jarred version and put a little love into the bowl.
