MY WEEK IN FOOD

Big emphasis on breakfast this week, starting with these beauties: red and green baked apples. It’s a recipe in the works for my cookbook, but I did something similar a few years ago that you can find here. Started the week off with a big veggie prep  — washing lettuces, chopping vegetables, and making a […]

A NOT-SO-DIRTY LITTLE SECRET

I’ve been keeping a secret. I’ve never been very good at secrets, at least not the happy kind. Take, for instance, how I handled the first three months of my pregnancies, a time when common sense dictates that you keep this news between you and your beloved. But each night, I’d have to confess to Mr. […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

I do believe I’m a little behind here on My Week in Food, so let’s catch up starting with breakast. Made this pretty little meal for a food writer  friend who stopped by to talk shop. Took advantage of all my favorite fall fruits in a diced salad of persimmon, pomegranate, pears, and tangerines, with […]

WILL THE REAL “BEST DIET” PLEASE STAND UP

Last fall I sat with my middle daughter Rosie as she hosted a bake sale at our neighborhood farmers’ market. At one point, a darling girl of about three toddled up to eye the cookies, quick breads, and granola that Rosie and I had baked for the occasion. Hovering over her was the girl’s mother who […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

The week started with a birthday in our house. Big sis made middle sis this chocolate layer cake with a ganache frosting pulled from the pages of the Flour cookbook. Being home alone with leftover chocolate cake all week? Not so good for me. Frosting and self control don’t go hand and hand. Chocolate was how […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Started the week off by ferrying this salad with Green Goddess dressing to a Superbowl Party across town. It was all that was needed alongside the killer southern fried chicken my brother cooked up for the occasion. Not something I eat often, but worth every crispy bite. Speaking of classics from the south, I made […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Proof that my people really like their protein, this roast chicken was met like a long lost friend after many veggie-centric meals over here. I salted it generously and refrigerated it for two days, then squeezed (squoze?) the juice of a lemon over the whole thing, doused it liberally with paprika, turmeric, ground coriander, and […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

It was a jam-packed Week in Food with some lovely eats and one exploding egg incident (that, unfortunately, I can’t blame on the kids). Here’s what it all looked like snapped with my iphone. Discovered  the yard where we spent Fourth of July was teeming with wild strawberries as tiny as the tip of your […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

Me and My Week in Food were off on a family vacation for a couple of weeks. We’re back to our regularly scheduled postings, with a few photos snapped during our journey. We were treated to a lazy couple of days at my friend Sarah’s cottage in the countryside. Nothing like a summer supper outdoors under […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

An abundance of late-season citrus landed in this simple salad of grapefruit, oranges, and cucumbers. The dressing:  1/2 teaspoon coarse mustard, 1 teaspoon honey, 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, pinch salt. Spent Saturday at a track meet where we opted for a BYO lunch instead of the concession stand: bean salad, […]
