There are times when I get home from work, drop my bag, open the fridge, and dinner just jumps out at me. I see the garlic scapes on the middle shelf, the tomatoes on the counter, some good ricotta lurking in the back, and it’s done: summer pasta. But other times, despite what others surely […]

The experts report that corn pudding is a specific thing. Before angering the purists with this hacked-up version, I figured I’d look into what the original actually is. After an earnest attempt to track down true corn pudding, I’m here to report – somewhat cheerily? – that Google is so full of riffs and adaptations, […]

This site’s been down on and off for the last week or so, due to technical problems that definitely are over my head in terms of complexity. But you know me, I tried to fix them anyway. After one full day of head cold-induced stupor and a second, semi-conscious day of tinkering around, I seem […]

I was poking around on Food52 the other day and came across a recipe for Mama’s Summer Gazpacho, from one of my favorite early participants in the site.

D and I recently rewatched all seven seasons of The West Wing, start to finish. We loved it when it aired, we’ve loved it the other five or so times we’ve watched it, and I gotta say, the show stands the test of time. Late in season 7, it dawned on me that I’d spent […]

Ooh, have I been excited to tell you about these shortbread. I first made them as a way to use up some very ancient cocoa nibs taking up space in my tiny pantry. The irony: I loved them so much, I went out and bought more cocoa nibs to make them again. I’ve made them […]

White Asparagus with Cashew Cream Sauce

May 14, 2014

Friends, today is the day I almost told you a story about the time I made a recipe I’d had my eye on for forever, and it was a total dud. The recipe came from Elaine Sciolino, by way of the NYT dining section. Sciolino shared it last year, along with the jealousy-inducing tale of […]
