Quick but delicious weeknight dinners are my jam. I don’t like to spend more than 40 minutes but I don’t want to be completely boring or entirely routine. I like a bit of variety and I like to have a bunch of strong meals in my rotation. I recently tried a new sheet pan recipeContinue reading “cook | sheet pan shrimp scampi.”
Is the best thing. I miss my visits to Phoenix, where patio brunching is a new year round possibility. Especially for ceviche and breakfast tortas and the best margs imaginable. But, it’s better that the doc and I can now brunch any Sunday we’d like, even if it isn’t patio style. I miss my holidayContinue reading “brunch”
Lazy summer lunches on the porch are the best. I could spend two hours. It’s all about fresh veggies and fruit, and pasta salad, of course. I made this pasta salad up on the fly (easiest thing to cook, ever) and made a really tasty dijon champagne vinegar dressing for it. What other combinations shouldContinue reading “summer lunches.”
It’s been a cold, dark world for the cheese lover in me. For more than a year, my favorite cheese–an institution in and of itself in France–has been banned from US shores for one ridiculous reason: the FDA feared dust mites discovered on that crusty rind often likened to the surface of some uninhabitable planetContinue reading “mimolette.”

And I’m a cookbook gal. Sure,Continue reading “prosciutto / peas / shaved parm.”
There’s nothing better than clams and lobster in summer. These delicious eats were at The Clam Box in Ipswich, when Sean was here visiting just two weeks ago. Has it already been two weeks?
Sean introduced me to my first sweet potato fry. I kind of…loved it.
Broccoli cheddar soup, before I hit it with a handheld blender. Gorgeous, warm, perfect for a cold Friday.
There’s nothing better than a fancy French and Italian cheese case. Just saying.
At the Fort McDowell pow wow. If you’ve never had it, what are you waiting for?
Golf claps to Roadhouse, an offshoot of my favorite local watering hole eatery in Washington Square, Publick House. While I’ve always been a bit on the fence about Roadhouse, I am pleased as punch to say they serve a late-night menu to 1:30 a.m., unlike most all other establishments around my house. And damn ifContinue reading “We were definitely in a pickle trying to find late night eats…”
