I realized today when I was in the midst of this epic recipe (epic because of my life, not because it’s inherently difficult…) a few things. I realized that I love cooking, as a way of marking out the time and place, of making something special, sacred if you will…remembered. I understood that recently I’ve […]

Goat Cheese and Eggplant Crostini

May 18, 2013


I am going to be alternating during the next few posts between desserts and appetizers/veggies dishes–from simple yet elegant (classic recipes I’m finally putting on the blog)–to fun, inventive, and adventurous. There’s alot going on here for us this spring–a time of wonderful changes, preparations, limited time for kitchen adventures but always inspiration in the […]

Moroccan Lamb Stew

January 21, 2013


It’s time for a hearty wintertime dish–such as you might enjoy with family and friends on a cold Sunday evening in New York…with wine flowing apace with the chatter. Lamb, being one of the most nutritious forms of meat out there, as well as easy for little tummies to digest, has had some attention on […]

Pizza and Croissants and Jams–Oh My!

December 30, 2012


What an epic food adventure this was. It started with croissants… This is the recipe I used last year, with great success.

(And easy, which is quite important in these busy days I am living through!) (Side Note: There was a nice play […]

This ain’t no Snapper…

July 14, 2012


This is a recipe for a quick and easy fish dish. I know, it’s hard to believe I cook anything that doesn’t start with “M” and end in “uffin”…This post is part of proving that to you, and because it involves one of my favorite “secret ingredients”–pomegranates. They have been creeping into alot of things […]

Asparagus Pizza

May 8, 2012


This Asparagus pizza takes some of my favorite sights and tastes of spring, and rolls them into one easy dish. We had the ham and asparagus already around, and the yellow tomatoes glowed at me from the grocery shelves…so they are in here too. Ingredients Whole wheat pizza dough Roasted Asparagus (15-20 min at 425, […]

Not every recipe I share with you earns an exclamation point in the title. This is my humble opinion of this recipe, I’ll let you be the judge. I attempted to share this post with you on Friday, but realized that I was going to struggle while blogging about the two things that I had […]
