MY WEEK IN FOOD

Having kids home for the summer is seriously cutting into my writing time, which is why several weeks rolled right on by without My Week in Food.  In the event of another dry spell, you can always catch what I’m up to on Instagram. For now, let’s talk about 4th of July, which suddenly seems forever-ago. […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

The Week in Food got off to an auspicious start when dozens and dozens of perfectly ripe Blenheim apricots landed on my doorstep from an apricot farmer in thanks for a favor. Realizing how such favors can pay off, I’m officially pimping myself out to support/aid/help any and all summer fruit farmers. Pass it on. […]

Started the week off with a toast party in honor of the dad in the house. Mr. Mom’s Kitchen was gifted a shiny new toaster for Father’s Day, so we felt obliged to break it in. Not exactly a new surfboard, but it does make some killer toast. Breakfast for a crowd the following morning involved […]

Had our first taste of summer eggplant in Sarah Copeland’s Eggplant Parmesan Supper from her book, Feast. I was short on time so used prepared tomato sauce, which didn’t seem to make a dent in how totally excellent the dish is. Did up a few food gifts this week, starting with a batch of these Sweet, Salt & Spice […]

It was a birthday Week in Food at our house, which we kicked off with kiddie blood orange cocktails. A paper umbrella is all it takes to feel like a party. Tiny mushroom turnovers with buttered radishes accompanied the cocktails. Before you go thinking I made all those itty bitty pastries, think again. This is where Trader […]

We had a bit of a heat wave this week, so I did up a batch of Blueberry Super Food Smoothies to fill and freeze in pop molds. Nobody guessed there was all kinds of goodness in there, just that they were good. We also  fired up the barbecue for an outdoor dinner of grilled shrimp with this […]

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 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 […]
