i make this salad often sometimes i use canned mandarins if i haven't got any other types of citrus. my family loves blood oranges too. do you make orange and fennel salad ever, mmmm, so good.


Blood oranges are hard to find in my area, so I end up using a lot of pink grapefruit as a substitute. Do you use a plain knife to get your onions that thin - or do you have a mandoline?

This looks delish. It's just that...(try not to gasp)we don't eat onions. What else might work to spice up the tangy fruity, pine nutty flavas?


That is a beautiful salad. Blood oranges make me happy.


Kat, I use a regular ole knife. I am the crazy sharp knife lady. I get lots of satisfaction from slicing things suuuuper-thin. I go slow...I'm afraid of mandolines, maybe I'll get one when the kids are older...

Can orange mold growing in discrete spots cause shortness of breath, what is the best way to remove it?
Lately I've been wheezing after running and in general feeling like it's harder to breath, is it possible orange mold is causing this?

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
