MY WEEK IN FOOD

  Started the week off on a fancy note at a birthday party for my sister-in-law where a barrel of oysters and a big bottle of bubbly greeted us before we even got to the front door. My kind of party. Followed by these sunlit scallops, as delicious as they were pretty. It all turned […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

I rolled right on past last Friday without My Week in Food, so have lots to share, starting with this bubbling cauldron of pasta sauce made for dinner with friends. Braised a five pound pork shoulder in four cans of San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, and chopped onion. After a day on the stove, I shredded […]

Before I get into the nitty gritty of the week, a heads up to stay tuned for these Coconut Date Walnut Scones, part of my Year of Whole Grains series, coming your way next week! I needed those scones, along with a cup of hot tea, when I was in chilly Chicago last week, teaming […]

I don’t know about you, but for me, getting my house and […]

Started off My Week in Food honing my breakfast skills at cookbook author Megan Gordon’s Whole Grain Mornings cooking class. How pretty are these eggy souffles? Also pretty were the blood oranges that we squeezed for colorful mimosa to go along with all the breakfast eats. Excellent. It was a two-souffle weekend since one of […]

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 […]

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 […]

Total score when Rosie elected to run under dinner one night. All went swimmingly until she asked for help adding the cream. 1 1/2 cups of it. 1 1/2 cups ? Of cream? It took all restraint to keep from telling her six ways to modify the recipe, which, in the end, was ridiculously delicious. […]

Butter enthusiasm around here is off the rails ever since the kids discovered the “butter keeper” while visiting cousins. Fill it with fresh butter, invert into a vessel of water that creates a seal, and the result is room-temperature-soft butter that doesn’t go rancid. Who’s up for toast? I’m fired up about A Year of […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

I started the week still in Oaxaca, where my mornings began with this magical hot chocolate (sometimes mixed with their magical coffee), a combo of cacao, almonds, cinnamon, sugar, and milk. Heaven, Then I was back in my  own kitchen again, where it felt good to launch into the New Year with some good, clean […]
