After spending the better part of a year cooking without any regard for fat or calories, I am slowing down. As much as I love bacon (isn’t everything better with bacon?), I’ve said farewell for now to my faithful friend. We’ll see each other again, I am sure … but for now, I need healthier […]

Channeling My Inner Julia: Ratatouille

When the Disney movie Ratatouille came out, I wondered what on Earth could be so special about ratatouille. It sounds like it could be a pasta dish, though it isn’t, so I was picturing a rotini with squash or something. As it turns out, the results were better than i imagined they would be. Paige […]

A few years ago, Will was the kid on the beach afraid to leave his little chair and get his toes sandy. He used to scream about it being dirty. But children grow and change. Yesterday I watched at a distance as Will studied the periwinkles, hermit crabs and minnows that inhabit the tidal pools […]

I should have taken a picture of Paige. I really should have. She enjoyed the papery, thin, crispy bits of kale I gave her . . . but since it was papery, thin and crispy, it also broke apart very easily. That meant green specks everywhere — in her hair, on her hands, in her […]

Mmmm. The first fresh vegetables of late spring. These spring onions popped up at the farmer’s market a little over a week ago. They just looked so delicious (should have taken a pic!). Rather than try to use all in salads, salsas and other condiments, I decided to try something different: cooking them so that […]

We love us some potatoes in this house. Whether its some quickly whipped up mashed potatoes, which can be a quick and versatile starch to accompany meals, or baked fries and roasted potatoes, it’s tasty stuff. In terms of types of potatoes, we are pretty open. A sampler of types of potatoes: Red potatoes are […]

Sometimes I will just write down a list of ingredients and guess how much of each one is necessary to make a mouthwatering dish. Sometimes I am right. Sometimes I am way off-base. It was definitely the former when I dreamed up this dish. I was hooked at first bite (and made sure to have […]

I like vegetables a lot. But what I don’t like is boring vegetables — just steamed or boiled and thrown on a plate. I don’t think that does the flavor of any veggies justice. It’s just like cooking with any kind of meat or fish: sure, you could just grill it up and throw a […]

Happy birthday, Weekend Herb Blogging! Weekend Herb Blogging is celebrating its second birthday this weekend. Creator Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen has challenged bloggers to incorporate an herb and a veggie into a dish for this weekend’s roundup.

When I saw these two posts on radishes over at Kalyn’s Kitchen, I was intrigued but not driven to make them. But over the next few days, this one called sauteed radishes with vinegar and herbs remained on my mind. And when I say it remained on my mind, I mean I was virtually obsessed […]
