auntie’s flat bread (pizza)

August 21, 2012

1

One thing that I am frequently surprised about: how much I enjoy eating a fresh tomato. This seems like no crazy ordeal, for sure. But had you met me over a decade ago and suggested I chop up a nice fresh tomato and toss a piece in my mouth, I would tell you that you must be […]

Tumala d’Andrea

August 12, 2012

I bought this Saveur cookbook over two years ago. This was the first thing that I saw that made me dog ear the page. A timbale, named for the drum, or tummala, tumala, it’s got a few names… An Italian casserole. It looked amazing, but way too overwhelming to take from the page to the kitchen table. […]

I recently went on a little spending spree, online. It was not as bad as the one time I signed up for the CSA under the influence… But, I got a few things that I had been looking at buying for quite some time. A few pairs of sunglasses, a nice little cover for my […]

make brunch ahead of time

I’ve taken an extended vacation from cooking over this holiday. Food shopping, mostly in preparation to go away for the weekend- it has ended us with no 1/2&1/2 for coffee and no lunches for work. Epic fail… But what I did do when I did shop and cook, ended up working out well…. Each year […]

csa share : week 3

June 26, 2012

It’s a funny story, how I signed up for my CSA share this year. Well, at least my friend Steph who I’m sharing my share with this year thought it was funny. I went out for food and drinks (emphasis on the drinks, margaritas, to be exact) with my sisters and a friend. I had two (or […]

This was the view from the deck – 180 degrees of mountain tops, treetops, lots of clouds and green. My dad did a great job finding the house that we rented, in Glover, VT. There was already discussion about returning the next year to rent the house again for a family vacation by the time […]

Father’s Day weekend part 1

June 15, 2012

My dad loves chocolate. Loves it. L-O-V-E! I wonder, at times if we are truly blood relations, given my general dislike for the stuff- unless of course its covering the inner, peanut butter part of a Reese’s. But seriously, who can say no to a Reese’s?! Last night I decided we could start off the […]

Memorial Day Weekend

May 28, 2012

2

I hope everybody had a lovely, safe “unofficial start” to the summer. The end of last week looked dismal. I was sick as a dog, couldn’t breath through either nostril, which meant I woke up choking several times a night- dreadful. I thought the long weekend was doomed. It didn’t help that the weather guys […]

Lemon Tart, a Mother’s Day disaster in the kitchen

May 14, 2012

I had lemons. I had motivation. I had time. I had recipes. I also had no idea what I was doing. I’ve never made a tart before. Not a real one, anyways. I’ve used pie crust, and fruit, and not put a second crust on top, therefore making it not a pie, and a crust […]
