Baked Eggplant Gratin

Baked Eggplant Gratin

Eggplant harvested right from the Tomato Envy garden is one of my favorite end-of-summer treats. I said last year that I was going to grow less eggplant, but it didn’t happen. This year though, I’m much better equipped with eggplant recipes so that none of it goes to waste. Compared to standard supermarket eggplant, the world […]

Mediterranean Grilled Corn Salad with Halloumi Cheese

Mediterranean Grilled Corn Salad with Halloumi Cheese

One of my favorite summer flavors, besides that of fresh ripe tomatoes, is the unbeatable flavor of grilled foods. You just can’t achieve it indoors. A few years ago, Mr. President and I treated ourselves to a little housewarming gift and bought a Big Green Egg which is the bomb diggity of charcoal cookers. And, […]

Master THE Perfect Pie Crust

Master THE Perfect Pie Crust

It’s fruit pie time! PIE! I love it for summer desserts and maybe even the occasional breakfast treat. Pies are so versatile that you can enjoy them with whatever fruit is in season. Believe it or not, pies can also be a very convenient, make-ahead dessert option for summer events and entertaining. But, why does […]

Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Hazelnuts

You know that one outfit you have in your closet that makes you look fabulous and feel like a rock star? Maybe it’s your perfectly-tailored interview suit, a little black dress or that one pair of jeans that makes you look like arm candy, but you know what I’m talking about. You want everyone you […]

Bourbon-Preserved Sour Cherries

Bourbon-Preserved Sour Cherries

“Abra, abra-cadabra….I wanna reach out and grab ya…” I sang softly to myself on a rainy Saturday while pitting sour cherries against a soundtrack of insidious earworms thanks to a marathon 80s #1 hit countdown with WXPN, our favorite public radio station. Sour cherries have a season that’s as fleeting as an 80s one-hit wonder, available for only 2-3 […]

Spring Vegetable Risotto

Spring Vegetable Risotto

I put risotto in the same bucket as frittata. If you have eggs to make a frittata, you have a meal. If you have arborio rice in your pantry, you have a meal, too. Both dishes can be made with whatever fresh produce you have on hand from your local farmer’s market or even your […]

Asparagus Refrigerator Pickles

Asparagus Refrigerator Pickles

Asparagus ranks high among foods that should only be eaten in season. The quality and flavor of asparagus that’s in season in your area is far superior than supermarket asparagus any other time of year. It’s too bad asparagus season is short, maybe 4 or 5 weeks where we live. And, I eat loads of […]

German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad

When I got married, I gained so much: bragging rights to the most awesome husband, a new and healthier set of life priorities, a pizza stone, a few pounds, three more beautiful cats, and access to a pickup truck. I also lost some things like funny blind date stories, a good bit of my cynicism, […]

Spring Vegetable Tart

Spring Vegetable Tart

Tarts are perfect for combining the season’s best ingredients into a single meal. Fresh asparagus and spring onions don’t just appear at farmer’s markets at the same time for no reason. They complement each other beautifully. This spring vegetable tart’s simple ingredient list works because you treat the ingredients in different ways to coax out […]

Butter-Braised Radishes

Butter-Braised Radishes

Is there any vegetable less glamorous than the humble radish? It grows in the dirt and most people have no idea what a good one tastes like. As a kid, I knew them as those red bitter things that were sliced paper thin and used to garnish crappy iceberg lettuce restaurant salad. In a feeble attempt […]
