Wild Mushroom Tart

Wild Mushroom Tart

A few weeks ago, I took an epic vacation with my mother to the majestic central California coast in part to attend the Big Sur Forager’s Festival. Even in the days leading up to the Festival, the restaurant menus we encountered from San Francisco to Santa Cruz to Carmel-by-the-Sea and finally to Big Sur said, […]

Pizza Wars Part II: Homemade Thin Crust Pizza

Pizza Wars Part II: Homemade Thin Crust Pizza

A few weeks ago, I shared with you a wonderfully easy way to make homemade pan pizza – no fancy equipment needed – reminiscent of the Chicago-style pizza that was the second-best thing to happen to me growing up. The first best thing was when my mom agreed to let me start shaving my legs, […]

Barley Risotto with Caraway-Seasoned Feta

Barley Risotto with Caraway-Seasoned Feta

This time of year, I have an inner struggle about wanting to hunker down with some heavy comfort food – something blanketed with bubbly melted and/or burnt cheese – and knowing that I did just that yesterday. And maybe even the day before. This tomato-y barley risotto is plenty comforting without being too heavy. There’s […]

Moroccan Spiced Beef Stew

Moroccan Spiced Beef Stew

Now is the time, after the holidays, when people start to hate on winter. But not me! I don’t actually know what I would do without a proper winter, or the season’s easy, comforting food. With the garden (mostly) put to bed, it’s my time to relax, be horizontal on the sofa, and generally regroup […]

Pizza Wars Part I: Homemade Pan Pizza

Pizza Wars Part I: Homemade Pan Pizza

Second only to the long-running debate Mr. P and I have about about who loves the other more, the debate about thin vs. thick homemade pizza is a common one in our home. I like many things about living on the east coast: the people are rough around the edges but loyal and sincere, there […]

Homemade Eggnog: Holiday Social Lubrication

Homemade Eggnog: Holiday Social Lubrication

I have mixed feelings about the holidays. I like the idea and original spirit of them, but I often feel like much of the fun and purpose has been lost in all the stress, panic-filled trips to the mall, and forced socializing. So, even though I’m not a traditional sort of person, I find myself […]

Apple Cider Farro Salad: The Anti-Thanksgiving

Apple Cider Farro Salad: The Anti-Thanksgiving

Each year, I look forward to the Thanksgiving holiday for what I know it will be: a long, relatively lazy weekend filled with heavy, traditional comfort foods that I’ll eat for days on end while sitting around in my sweatpants. It’s really the only time of year I think it’s OK to eat mashed potatoes […]

Potato Leek Soup

Potato Leek Soup

When I search out new recipes for soup, I’m usually drawn to spicier preparations or those that  are full of chunky vegetables. I skip over those that have a list of less flavorful ingredients that I can’t imagine coming together to make something great. Potato leek soup is one of those recipes that I tend […]

Bold Beef Chili Featuring the Power Trio

Bold Beef Chili Featuring the Power Trio

  You can’t very well have a blog that talks about  food and not have your own beef chili recipe, especially with winter coming. Beef chili recipes are a dime a dozen, and everyone thinks theirs is the best. I’ve made several chili recipes over the years and I’ve taken the best from each of them to […]

Simply Fabulous Apple Tart

Simply Fabulous Apple Tart

For my 40th birthday (it’s “nunya business” how many years ago it was), Mr. President and I took a trip to northern California. We ended up in Big Sur, the place I’m now convinced I should have been born. This is also where I will be if I ever go missing. But, before that, the day […]
