    Recipe: Peruvian Roast Chicken

    Here’s another one that we make every so often around stately Lowe Manor. When we had it last week, I just had to roast it in the oven – normally I’d put it on the rotisserie on the grill outside, but weather conditions did not allow it. Like many such recipes, this one is all… Read More

    Holiday Recipe: Banana Bread

    Note: I’ve finally added a “Recipes” category, since there are quite a few of them floating around the blog over the years, so if you want to find all the kitchen-synthesis posts in one place, it’s now possible! We just finished off a loaf of this not long ago around here; it’s a recipe that… Read More

    Weekend Recipe: Marinated Pork Roast

    I realize that I’ve picked up a lot of new traffic to the blog over the last few months, so today’s post perhaps needs some introduction. Over the years here I’ve often posted recipes during breaks and holidays – the old saying is that you should never trust an organic chemist who can’t cook, and… Read More

    Fourth of July Food Blogging

    Tomorrow is, of course, a big US holiday, and I’m taking today off as well. As I often do around here, I’m spending some of the holiday cooking. The weather has been exceptionally hot around here, so tomorrow morning before it gets too steamy, I’m making this combination of side dishes (pickled grilled onions and… Read More

    Cold Weather Recipe Prep: Beef Stew With Bacon, Onions, and Mushrooms

    The weather here in the Boston area is doing the full Christmas/Winter experience, with sleet and freezing rain followed up a couple of days later by seven inches of snow. And over the next few days the temperature is dropping day by day, heading down below zero (Fahrenheit!) on Thursday. So it’s clearly time for… Read More

    Holiday Synthesis: Cranberry Lime Pie

    This is one that I tried out this year for Thanksgiving, and it seemed to go over well. It’s a version of a recipe published by Bon Appetit, stripped of some frou-frou and with the preparation modified a bit.  You’ll need cranberries, eggs, limes, sugar, butter (room temperature), and some sort of crust material (see… Read More

    End of Summer Organic Prep: Blackberry Cobbler

    So since today’s a holiday in the US, I thought I’d continue my intermittent tradition of blogging the occasional food prep with something that might be useful. Blackberries are still very much in season here in the Northeast, and I just made this yesterday: blackberry cobbler. I made it with freshly picked blackberries, which I… Read More

    Cold-Weather Food: Rindsrouladen

    I’ve been thinking about a recipe or two to post here, but I’ve already covered several favorites over the years (do a Google search starting with the phrase site:blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline and then the word recipe; that’ll call them up). They get used frequently around Pipeline HQ here – the gingersnap cookies were made… Read More

    Two Side Dish Recipes

    It’s Labor Day weekend here in the US, so I’ve had the day off. As I sometimes do here around holidays, I thought I’d put up another kitchen-chemistry prep – two, in fact, that work together: grilled tomato salsa and grilled onion pickle. The recipes are adapted from those in Steve Raichlen’s Barbecue Bible, which… Read More

    Recipe Blogging: Chicken Paprikash

    So this one is a fine cold-weather meal, but I should issue a disclaimer. Whenever I talk patent law on the blog, I always note that I Am Not a Lawyer, so this time I should note that I Am Not a Hungarian. I’ve had several Hungarian friends over the years, and I’ve spend a… Read More
