Told ya that canning was my thing last week… if I were to channel my dad’s sense of humor hardcore, I’d say that ‘canning was my jam’ get it? Jam? Canning? Yup, could’ve saved you from that, but chose not to! I found a grocery store (Market Basket, to be specific) that has the cheapest […]

Dejavu, all over again, right? You just saw these rolls. Why do you care to see them again? Because I’ve got a few minutes and I decided to break these things down into various posts so that I can ‘splain myself, and pass the time until my food needs to come out of the oven. […]

Have you ever bought “b-grade” tomatoes in bulk? Well, if you are planning on it, do it on a day that you will have time to do something with them SOON, don’t pick them up on the Wednesday of a ridiculously busy week and think that you can leave them “til you have time” because, […]

risi e bisi, herbed chicken, and cauliflower

Do you like risi e bisi? I do. I won’t lie, when I say it, it sounds more like “reees-beeesy” I’ve had this dish about a million times in my life, but it has been a long, long time since I made it. This is the recipe from my mom’s book. Everybody Cooks Rice. Does […]

Do you see that? That is the smoked paprika and pink Himalayan salt that I allowed myself to splurge on at Whole Foods the other day. It looks pretty when it’s mixed together. It looks much less attractive when it’s being rung up… And I was beginning to think that I was a little too cheap for this […]

When it’s time for dinner, sometimes you need to nosh on something while you think, cook, talk, answer the phone, press 3 to be taken off the call list, and do conversions from one recipe to…. normal numbers from the country of one’s birth… This calls for a little app, and a dinner that takes […]

salmon and two salads

In just a few words, I can show you how to bastardize a perfectly good recipe, by the legend, the lady herself. Julia Child. It’s vinaigrette. It’s super easy. But, in my world, it is even easier to walk by the aisle that holds vinegars and oils without noticing time and time again.. This means […]

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 […]

Summer is a good time to make a salad. Something no too hot. Something that doesn’t heat up the kitchen, and with that, the whole house it too warm for anybody to relax and digest, or do anything else of note. Even with central air, things get HOT up in here when you cook for too […]

Apparently I have broken my camera. No matter what I do, it just keeps saying “remove battery pack” to me. What the hell. I’m pissed. I was too fertutzed the other night to even remember to pick up my stupid iphone and take pictures with it. So stupid. So, my plan was to use up the […]
