I keep calling it that. I know it’s an Instant Pot, but still. I adapted our original Peggy’s sauce to work in the Instapot! For future reference, here’s how I did it. I usually add at least 2 zucchini and 2 yellow squash, and 3 full cans of tomatoes, but I didn’t want to overfill […]
In which we embrace the plant-base
(Oh hi, it’s been a while, we’re changing things on the blog, etc.) We’ve been cooking a lot of plant-based dishes lately. This summer, we had a big scare when Justin’s dad had a heart attack. He’s doing great now (walking a lot, eating better, and losing weight!), but at the time, we just didn’t […]
Things I made
I often take photos of food I make and then forget to post them. Here are a few of those things. acai bowl brunch cheese and things, or as we call it, #snacks noodles and greens roasted chicken veggie pizza
Sometimes a place and a time is so lovely you just have to photograph it. That is all.
Today’s Farmhouse Delivery was so lovely to see. We’ve been eating out quite a bit, and haven’t had many veggies in the house, so all these greens look so dang delicious. Sadly, some of our order didn’t arrive, and so we’re still waiting on butter, eggs, sauerkraut and hemp seeds. Roux wanted some greens, too. […]
That thing called Indie Chefs Week.
Oh, internets! I’m finally, mostly-kinda back to normal after a week-long crazy event called Indie Chefs Week. It was amazingly fun, brilliant, inspiring, life-changing, etc., but it meant that I worked nonstop, my brain was flexed to the max, and I was left with the worst hangover from overwork/overeat/overdrink/overfun. I would do it again in […]
On Opportunity and Sweetness
So. A few weeks back, I got an email from Felipe, who works with none other than THE Francois Payard. They are testing out a new concept called MakeCarons – pre-baked macaron shells shipped to your door, ready to be filled with the filling of your choice. I was lucky enough to be offered a […]
This is why I love Nigel Slater.
Supper is baked potatoes, salt-crusted by rolling the damp, freshly rinsed potatoes in sea salt flakes, baked till their skins are crisp, then split open and stuffed with smashed smoked mackerel and chopped dill. A dollop of sour cream and it is a quietly splendid evening meal.
Arts & Crafts
Yesterday I mixed white beans, tuna and artichokes with a bit of lemon juice, olive oil and pepper. I consulted with my brilliant friend Kate, and today I re-made the salad with the addition of parsley, cherry tomatoes, capers, a vinaigrette, more pepper, greens, and toasted bread with really good butter. I am a great […]
I’m behind on sharing my iPhone photos! Here are a few: One of my coworkers went to Ikea and brought back these crackers and a tube of smoked roe. We all dutifully tasted it and all wished we hadn’t. Guys. This is my new favorite thing. My friend Nat brought a Kinder Happy Hippo for […]
