  • Mixed Berry Clafoutis

    Recipe: Mixed Berry Clafoutis

    My family is a berry family.  If I am going to be baking with berries, then I have to hide them behind the brussels sprouts or something so that no one finds them and eats them before I can use them.  It’s a race against the clock, survival of the berry fittest.  Very Darwinian.  Man... MORE

    A Year, 2 Days, But Who’s Counting

    I was going to write something about my dad as the one year mark of his death approached.   And then I was going to write on the actual anniversary itself.  But I didn’t.  The pressure, I guess.  I don’t go out to dinner on Valentine’s Day with my husband either.  The expectations, right?  Who needs...

    Recipe: Ricotta Berry Breakfast Crostini

    Crostini usually make their appearance as an appetizer.  They are merely little pieces of toast topped with anything from a nice brush of olive oil and salt to almost anything else on the planet.  And since toast for breakfast isn’t exactly a new idea, what have we been waiting for? One more thing….SPRING, SPRING, SPRING,... MORE

    Ebinger’s Blackout Cake: the legend, the recipe

    If you don’t like very chocolately chocolate cake then you should move along quickly.  Perhaps you’d like to read about Fruit Salad on a Stick?  Or Shredded Sauteed Brussels Sprouts?  They actually quite delicious. Now that we’ve gotten rid of the crazy people….. Ebinger’s Bakery opened in 1898, and grew into a string of 54... MORE

  • Chicken Kawarma

    Recipe: Chicken Kawarma with Lemon Sauce over Hummus

    My friend Chris Styler is such a damn fine cook.  I love to eat his food, I love to cook with him, and I love the fact that every once in a while we make plans to create some sort of themed meal and throw ideas and ingredients back and forth like bean bags, and... MORE

  • Sesame Oil Hummus

    Recipe: Sesame Oil Hummus

    I ran out of tahini recently.   How I’m not sure, but it happened.  At the moment I realized I was out of tahini, I was making hummus, and everything else was in the food processor all ready to blend.  My friend Chris, a seriously skilled cook, was over and said, “Don’t you have sesame oil? ...

  • Beets on Top of Greens - Close Up

    Red and Yellow Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

      I know that you’re supposed to cook the beet greens when you buy fresh beets.  I know it, and I don’t do it.  I trim them off, and set them aside with good intentions, and then I get too busy to deal with them and then when they finally wilt and languish on the... MORE

    Recipe: Spanish Rubbed Chicken Breasts with Collard Greens

    The eternal quest to make boneless, skinless chicken breasts into an interesting dinner.  It’s not hard, really; it’s just endless. I just love rubs, and the way that some of the rub that is pressed all over a piece of meat will then come off to become part of the pan sauce, which in this... MORE

  • Endive, Radicchio and Mozzarella Salad

    Recipe: Endive and Radicchio Salad with Fresh Mozzarella

    Is tonight really the last episode of the season?  Did everyone realize this but me?  I am already a little bereft.  Even though it will be a two-hour episode I can’t quite imagine how they will wrap up all of the dangling plot lines.  Too many cliff hangers are hard to take. Mary’s love looks... MORE

  • Chicken with Mushrooms in a Cream Sauce

    Recipe: Chicken with Mushrooms in Cream Sauce

    Cream sauces were very stylish in the Edwardian days of Downton Abbey.  Lush and rich and decadent, much like the people who ate them.  Serve with asparagus and any starch from quinoa (not very era-appropriate, but a whole grain is always a good idea when you are indulging in a cream sauce) to rice.
