Green Salad with Anchovy-Garlic Cream

Green Salad with Anchovy-Garlic Cream

You’ve Gotta Make This. Trust Me. I’ve been making this salad for years. Every time I make it my son will remind me this is his very favorite green salad. For good reason. It’s unlike any other salad I make and I’ve never eaten anything else to which I could compare it. It’s unique.  Heavy […]

Trio of Pickles

So Much Joy for So Little Effort. As I suppose this post will make clear, I love pickles. All kinds of pickles. I like plenty of acid with my meals and having assorted high quality homemade pickles on hand leaves me with choices. I am never without one and usually have several kinds sitting in […]

Rigatoni with Lamb, Harissa, and Halloumi

Rigatoni with Lamb, Harissa, and Halloumi

Come on. Doesn’t This Sound Good? When I set out to make this, here’s what I had in mind. Pasta in which the pasta is front and center. Rigatoni is kind of in your face as far as pasta shapes go and I don’t think it makes sense to use it unless you’re going to […]

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Lamb Kebabs on Beet Flatbreads

Skewers of Lamb Served on Top of Flatbreads is Never a Bad Thing. I made my Beet Flatbreads with Pomegranate Raita and served them with lamb kebabs. I love skewering meats. Something about it just makes it so much more fun to eat rather than simply slicing up a leg of lamb.  I’ve been hooked […]

Potato Galette with Tomatoes and Oranges

Potato Galette with Tomatoes and Oranges

Potatoes, Crème Fraîche, Tomatoes, and Oranges Encased in a Buttery Crust – Sound Good to You? I was in the mood for a savory galette. And I had a day where I could spend time in the kitchen putting it together without any other pressing matters on the agenda. There are those days where you […]

Baked Black Lime Fries with Smoky Tomato Aioli

Oven Baked Black Lime Fries with Smoky Tomato Aioli

Is There Anything Better than a Crispy Potato Dunked in Something Delicious? Thick and crisp oven baked fries are a thing of beauty. I really don’t think of them as fries, per se. They’re bigger, so there’s more creamy inside of the potato and by tossing them in a couple teaspoons of rice flour, olive […]

Pork Patties with ‘Nduja Roasted Fennel and Potato Wedges

Pork Patties with ‘Nduja Roasted Fennel and Potato Wedges

Nothing Dull About These Flavors. Here’s a very tasty meal I put together after thinking about what to do with the ground pork sitting in my freezer and a couple of fresh fennel bulbs. Pork patties, seasoned with garlic, fresh oregano, and pecorino seemed like a good thing. I soaked fresh bread crumbs in milk […]

Bacon, Potato, and Cheddar Tart

Bacon, Potato, and Cheddar Tart

Bacon, Onions, and Crème Fraîche Play a Role in This Beauty. I found myself with an abundance of big baking potatoes due to a mistake with my grocery order, so I started thinking about what to do with some of them and decided on a tart. I began by making up a batch of my […]

Pork Noodle Bowl with Umami Sauce

Pork Noodle Bowl with Umami Sauce

Now Here is a Bowl of Noodles I Fully Support. Kenji Lopez is a favorite of mine and I came upon a recipe for his take on XO sauce in his new cookbook The Wok *. He calls it Umami Sauce because it doesn’t have the requisite dried scallops and shrimps, called for in typical […]

Sticky Coconut Rice Cakes with Turmeric Tomatoes

Sticky Coconut Rice Cakes with Turmeric Tomatoes

Crisp and Chewy Coconut Milk Rice Cakes are Out of This World Delicious. In my continuing cooking journey through Ixta Belfrage’s new cookbook, Mezcla, I made Sticky Coconut Rice Cakes with Turmeric Tomatoes. Wow. Wow. And wow. Just imagine this. Sticky rice is baked in a mixture of coconut milk, fresh ginger, scallions, garlic, and […]
