The dessert section of that book includes beautiful French pastries you always see in photos or in person at patisseries if... Continue reading

I recently met and listened to chef April Bloomfield speak about her latest cookbook, A Girl and Her Greens. I'll be writing a post about that shortly, but between that book event and spring being upon us, I've had vegetables on the brain. For an easy Sunday side dish or... Continue reading

I'm watching my home team play in the NBA Finals tonight. I had some boneless chicken breasts in the fridge and I felt like putting in a bit more effort tonight instead of just browning and baking. I had buttermilk in the fridge from a fancy Sunday brunch so I... Continue reading

I started a minestrone just now. Minestrone is a great soup to have up your sleeve at any time of the year. It's a hearty vegetable soup with beans and tiny pasta that makes a meal with good bread or a salad. In the fall, you can add chunks of... Continue reading

I volunteered at the farmers' market Saturday morning and came home starving. That's usually what happens when I work a shift in the food world. I'm busy making the food, serving the food, or cleaning up after the food making. So the food is either gone or my appetite is... Continue reading

I found some beautiful, round zucchini squash at the farm market last week. They seemed so...stuffable, really, so that's what I did. I found this recipe and used it as a guide. I made a filling of Italian sausage, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and spinach and stuffed all the little squashes.... Continue reading

We had tacos on a fairly regular basis when I was a kid. All brought to us by Ortega. Later on, we graduated to making taco salads, using the Ortega seasoning packets. I still love a taco night at home. Instead of buying the sodium-loaded seasoning packets, I wanted to... Continue reading

I just made the marinade for the pork tenderloin for this Vietnamese sandwich, Banh Mi. The recipe is here. In my small food chopper went fish sauce, garlic, honey, sugar, black pepper, and some scallions. It's a lazy Saturday, so instead of slicing the pork, I threw the whole tenderloin...
