        From time to time I will post roundups or lists of my favorites restaurants, food shops or dishes. I'll tell you where I really go. What's worth a splurge. Where you'll find chefs late at night. Breakfast Priorities. Favorite haunts of other food writer friends. Ice cream Worth the Detour. Watch for more.

    Warming Winter Soup by Lauren Bloomberg
    This soup was created in a refrigerator/pantry cleaning effort. Feel free to swap what you have at home. Vegetarian? Go for veggie stock. Want to use up the last onion? Let it take the place of the leek and shallot. I never remember to soak beans overnight but please, if you're the organized type, do so.

    Raspberry-Horseradish Jam
    I suggest serving this jam with goat cheese and crackers. Or center a small round of brie on a sheet of phyllo dough, pour half a jar of this jam on it and close. Bake it and serve warm in delightfully messy wedges

    Bacon and Baby Kale-Stuffed Pork Roast
    With the world’s easiest pan gravy and a few small flourishes, this stuffed pork dish is perfect for entertaining. The bacon in the stuffing adds smokiness and the pomegranate seed garnish gives a pop of bright sweetness for the perfect balance of flavors. I seal the seam with toothpicks and cook everything in one pan.

    Roasted Summer Vegetable Salad
    Growing up in Virginia, summer barbeques were serious business and potato salad seemed to adorn every table. However, I always worried that mayonnaise sitting out in the hot southern sun might make people ill. This roasted summer salad with a light lemon caper vinaigrette is the perfect solution...
