Really clean. From the way we’ve been living recently this is all too truly rare. Just ask our patient roommate. I feel this overwhelming need to take photos. To bask in it. I’m wondering whether I really want to cook dinner or if I should just leave it like this for a while. Meanwhile, the […]

It’s time to talk seasonal. I’m still a bit sad that we’re not doing a CSA this year–a decision prudently made accounting for the factors of brand new baby coming in peak season, and the plans to travel alot (which means we waste the food if we don’t find friends to take it off our […]

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 […]

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 […]

As I write the title of this blog, I am both overcome with a longing for Paris, as well as the striking realization of how amazing and stunning the phrase even is…the fact that I get to follow it with a bunch of photos and memories from a month ago is truly humbling. Ah life, […]

Paris food posts coming soon! I’m still dreaming in cafe au laits, croissants, and escargot (in that order). But meanwhile, there are a few recipes from earlier this month that I can’t bypass… This Brussel sprouts recipe is pretty neatly adapted from Food and Wine, one of my favorite sources of regular inspiration (and at […]

Folks, At this point, you are very aware that the name of my blog is not just a clever tagline, but gets to the heart of what happens around here. In sharing this incredible baklava recipe with you today—what I would consider a success of plucking and choosing what I liked best about two recipes, […]

Fasting and Feasting

March 30, 2013

Holy week is always a wonderful time for clearing the heart (and body) thanks to lenten fasting…since this blog is about food I’ll be focusing on that particular element of the week we just finished… This year, in my journey into cleaner eating (that began approximately 9 months ago) and the regular detoxes that have […]

Yes, I know that a calendar is telling us it’s spring. Yes, we’re all ready for warmth. But forgive me for admitting that for some of us, it doesn’t feel like spring yet…and in the meantime, I want to savor winter flavors just a bit longer by sharing this recipe with you. This soup has […]
