Well, my day began with a phone call I was nervous to make. You see, I had become acquainted with a woman named Faye through a prayer group at the church my family and I attend. Faye is an extraordinary woman who literally lives out of her car and ministers to homeless men and women around Charlotte. She has chosen to become like them in order to love them more thoroughly and passionately. She is also a very prayerful woman who loves people and feels uniquely convicted to pray for them individually. She was the person I had in mind... Continue »

Sulphur Butterfly (Colias sp.), probably a Clouded or Orange Sulphur (Photo by Cathie Bird) This is not my best photo of 2009, but it was the hardest to get. It took me all summer and into the fall to get a picture of a sulphur butterfly. There were plenty of them around, but they didn't seem to sit on anything for very long. By the time I'd get close enough for a shot, they would be airborne again and flying fast. As it got colder, with fewer flowers blooming, they seemed to stay on plants longer. Thanks to my prolific... Continue »

Recipes come to us in odd little ways. I remember learning how to make truffle omelettes from a gigling, nearly toothless old lady in Southwest France. Of course I took her seriously, she happened to be Marthe Delon, the famous truffle huntress who has been training a truffle-hunting pig a year for over 50 years. She calls them all Kiki - couldn't be bothered to remember a new name each year, she said. This roast chicken recipe came to me from not so exotic a location but no less interesting a source. The scene was the dining room at Manresa, the participants were Laurent Manrique, our dear friend and the famous chef of what I like to call the-dearly-departed-Aqua, his much-fairer-and-better-half Michelle, and yours truly. We had just been served a deceptively simple truffle omelette. Yes they certainly do omelettes at Manresa, hardly a greasy-countertop-diner-variety made from Nearly Eggless GooTM, but one comprised of Porcini puree, freshest farm eggs, and housemade salted butter, oh, yes, and a generous showering of white truffle at the table. It's the kind of dish that made us stopped in our tracks. "Elle m'a mise sur le cul", Laurent said of the dish, a French... Continue »
