Salad: Corn and Black Bean Salad

On September 14, 2011 By admin

When we lived in Berkeley, we had a Sunday night tradition. When the weather was just right (90% of the year), we (all of our fellow graduate school neighbors) gathered outside of our apartments and had a beautiful supper during sunset. The salad below was brought by my dearest friend. She just threw it together. [...]

If you have spent any amount of time with me or my food you will know one thing: I love caramelized onions. I will look for any decent vehicle to hold the golden beauties. I love them in salad. I love them on pizza. I love them in soups. With steak. On hamburgers. Maybe I [...]

Is a green salad included on your Thanksgiving table? I rarely hear of green salads as part of the holiday must haves. But, I’ve been wrong before. A few years ago, I created a Holiday Salad that I now include in most of my holiday meals. But that beloved salad has some competition. [...]

Dinner: Chana Masala

On January 4, 2010 By admin

I am addicted to Chana Masala. Our local mall’s food court has a hidden treasure–some of the Boston area’s best Indian food. Everytime I am at the mall, I treat myself to some Chana Masala (which are chick peas that have been simmering in a spicy tomato sauce for 24 hours). Because it’s [...]

Lunch: Ham Sandwich

On December 31, 2009 By admin

I just finished reading the authorized biography of Alice Waters (“Alice Waters and Chez Panisse” by Thomas McNamee). It was a great read and the ideas behind Waters’ food revolution are nutty and inspiring. In between the stories that comprise Waters’ life are narrative recipes. One in particular has beckoned me back into the kitchen. [...]

Ladies (I’m not ashamed to admit that all or most of you reading this are in fact Ladies)–

It is time. Summer has arrived (well, sort of…my posse doesn’t get out until June 23rd. Yes you read that right–June 23rd). At our house, the first few days of [...]

Lunch: Caprese Salad

On June 12, 2008 By admin

Tomatoes. We have a past. Until I was 18, tomatoes and I were not friends. But, I will never forget the day we started a relationship. I was sitting in my Aunt’s kitchen, talking about food. I mentioned my dislike of tomatoes. She looked at me strangely, then asked:
“Have you ever [...]

Snack: The Best (Pinto) Bean Dip

On February 4, 2008 By admin

When I was younger, one of my favorite restaurants offered a warm pinto bean dip along with their tortilla chips. After I left home, I craved the dip day and night. Fifteen years later, I’ve created a bean dip to fill that ever present craving. This dip takes the edge off of any homesickness I [...]

Lunch: Adults Only Tuna Sandwich

On January 30, 2008 By admin

Each day I fix my four-year-old daughter one of three possibilities for lunch: a bowl of yogurt topped with granola, a fluffernut sandwich (more on that next week), or an ambitious bowl of macaroni and cheese. I tire of these possibilities; and after fixing her plate I always ask myself, “but what should I eat?”. [...]
