In late March and early April, there’s a limit to my cuisinal inspiration.
Lunchtime Flexibility – The ease I referenced in my last post has stayed with me in the kitchen this week.
It's challenging to create a recipe when you're faced with both ingredient and time restrictions.
Weekday Lunch: Orzo with Broccoli Pesto – The most recent thief of my cooking motivation is the Fall time change.
It’s Worth It – If you caught my recent post about Fleisher's you saw that after two years of vegetarianism, I've started to eat small amounts of meat again.
Rhubarb Tagliatelle – Rhubarb never overstays its welcome at the farmers market: it shows up, people flock around the bins, and then it's gone.
Cooking it Fresh: Acorn Squash – I found many options, both online and in a few of my cookbooks, for my previously mentioned task of reviving acorn squash's reputation to be something I want to eat.
Need a dinner idea tonight? – How about Cacio e Pepe?
A few Sundays ago, we were in the mood for a filling, warm, and frankly heavy Sunday dinner.
Uncomplicated – Yesterday demanded an easy meal.
Frankies Eggplant Marinara – In full disclosure, I've yet to go to Frankies Spuntino or Prime Meats, though I have been to Café Pedlar numerous times (which should count for something by association!).
Fiery Tomato Sauce – I view a homemade tomato sauce as a blank slate.
All Day Eating – We viewed the 4th of July as the official kick-off of our summer in Brooklyn.
Minimalist Creativity – Our final CSA from the always wonderful Garden of Eve Farm resulted in….more potatoes!
Jumping on the Ramp Bandwagon – Until moving to Brooklyn, I was unaware of the relative insanity that surrounds the start of ramp season.
Our First Spring Green – I was unaware of exactly how delicious and fleeting pea shoots were until they became a surprise addition in our Garden of Eve CSA share this past weekend.
