Ribolita
september 17, 2013

Tamar Adler's book has gotten me excited to roast my vegetables all on one day, make a pot of beans and reheat the two for the rest of the week.

Buy the bookOnion Soup and Cesar Salad
september 11, 2013

Alongside will be my second favorite salad in the world, their Mock Cesar, from the same book, p. 35.

This is another dinner my kids most likely won't want to eat, so I'll mix up some tuna salad for them and serve that, too.

Toast

Toast - september 24, 2012

Once again, summer is nearly over. I hate to complain, but this one has been especially cold and foggy. Or maybe I just chose the wrong weeks to travel and missed all the sun. Either way, the plants in my garden are struggling - there are a few flowers, some raspberries, brussels sprouts, apples and a few straggly carrots ready to eat. I have a feeling that more than lack of the sun in the sky, this garden suffered at the hands of my own son, who enjoys tormenting me by changing settings on the irrigation timer.
