Culinary Conversation: Tasty dishes fit for a restaurant buffet
My first recollection of visiting a buffet restaurant was for my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary. That was a long time ago, and I don’t remember much except that there was a large group of us and the restaurant was somewhere in Boardman.
Culinary Conversation: Jersey? Sure? Garden state offers bounty of regional treats
When you have a craving for anything fishy, the best place to be is near a coastline. Atlantic City was such a place. It was one of the destinations of a recent vacation. I had never been there. That means I have never walked the boardwalk until last week.

Culinary Conversation: Fall is upon us, so eat your vegetables
At some point or other, we’ve all heard or said these words, “Eat your vegetables.” Fall vegetables are plentiful — both in grocery stores and roadside stands. The cabbage family appears to have several children including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and of course, cabbage itself.
Culinary Conversation: Use pumpkin to make more than jack-o-lanterns
A true sign of fall for me is when “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” airs on television. Its popular counterpart is the Christmas version. Let’s not jump ahead, though.

Culinary Conversation: Region boasts some tasty recipes
New Castle has its hot-dog sauce, lamb on the rod, some darned good pizza and frozen custard — all of which people travel miles for. Pittsburgh is known for its own set of goodies.
Culinary Conversation: Fall, old cookbooks stir up interesting recipes
Next week marks the beginning of fall. I’m not sure I’m ready for it, but this time of year denotes the harvest and that means there’s a surplus of fall vegetables and fruits.
Culinary Conversation: All chickened out? Try these options
What I’m about to say may surprise you. It came as a surprise to my brother, who after all these years, didn’t know this fact about me. I really don’t care for chicken that much.
Culinary Conversation: Some fair food you can make at home
Sure signs that summer is almost over — school and football have started, and county fairs and baseball are preparing to close down another season. While I’m reluctant to let go of my favorite time of year, I am glad I was able to make it to two county fairs this year.
Culinary Conversation: This week, let’s eat Crowe — dishes, that is
My day is made when recipes from readers are received at Culinary Conversation. So when an envelope arrived from Hickory Township resident Shirley Crowe, I was definitely pleased. Shirley sent a variety of recipes, which appear easy and tasty — two requirements many cooks strive for.
