When I visit the Saratoga Farmers’ Market, I see beautiful vegetables and fruits. I cannot resist taking a photograph. “Look at me. I’m pretty,” I imagine a red pepper or a striped delicata squash saying to me. “Take my picture.” And I do. Starting a food blog, My Saratoga Kitchen Table, created an excuse to visit the market and take photographs. I make a dish, arrange it on the table, take several photographs, select ones I like and post them…
Hello My Foodie Friends. In kitchens throughout the world, there is one piece of technology that has been the same since the Stone Age: the mortar and pestle. The mortar and pestle is one of the most primitive kitchen tools. You place ingredients in a bowl usually made of stone or ceramic — and pound them with a tiny club.

Did you know that a potato contains more potassium than a banana? I picked up this nutritional gem from Sheldon Farms at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. It came in late February, between the end of butternut squash and the beginnings of chives, when potatoes were one of the few local foods available. The idea that a potato could out-potassium a banana amazed me. I checked it out. Sheldon Farms was right. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that an average…

Hello My Foodie Friends! October is here. Before we know it, we will be marveling at the splendor of the colors. The fall weather typically begins a time where we begin to bring out some of our heartier favorite foods. My love for oatmeal began as a child. Believe it or not, I loved eating oatmeal for breakfast as a child. I always had fun creating channels with the milk, the melting butter acting as lava, and sugar being the…

Perhaps the most vivid sign of fall in Saratoga is the appearance of winter squash, in many shapes, sizes, and brightly colored hues. They fill the farm fields outside the city limits, and adorn in-town yards and porches. Many varieties of winter squash are now filling vendor stalls at the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. While the plethora of squash is delightful to observe, identifying the different varieties and when best to eat them can be confusing. For instance, many might not…
