You know those birds I was talking about singing A Chorus Line on my back porch at 6am? They’ve now moved on to The Phantom of the Opera and I can’t decide if I owe them admission fees or a knuckle sandwich. Let’s talk about flatbread while I try to figure out these perplexities in […]

I don’t know about you, but I might have a little crush on chicken sausages. Especially the sun-dried tomato ones. Actually, any flavor works for my fragile heart.

Alright, so it’s been decided! From April 17th through the 23rd I’m going straight-up-now-tell-me vegetarian. This Saturday I’ll post the planned menu and if you would like to, please join me! To get us in the mindset, here’s a lovely vegetarian spring risotto I made Thursday night. Morel mushrooms weren’t available just yet at Whole […]

Linguine With Anchovy Sauce and Breadcrumbs

I always forget how amazing anchovies are. They are like hidden gems in the world of flavor. They wear capes, fly around saving dishes with their super powers and frankly, they make the world a better, safer place.
