Winter Shandy Punch


This time last year I made a winter punch, it was prosecco and gin-based with seasonal citrus, ginger and rosemary.

Rosewater Shortbread


Looks like there is a big storm headed our way, so I'm going to sneak these in here, and then do a few fun things like check all the batteries in the flashlights.

Mashed Potatoes & Clouds


There are a disproportionate number of sky photos in my iPhone. As in, photos of the sky. I noticed it the other day when scrolling back, back, back looking for a picture I took in Fez.

Favorites List (11.28.14)


A few favorites for the holiday weekend...heavy on the reading. I'm in between books, please let me know if any of you are reading anything (books, articles, anything!

Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes


This is the week each year I get asked for vegetarian thanksgiving recipe ideas, so I thought I'd update my list of favorite recipes and ideas from the archives.

Rye Pasta


My little Marcato Atlas pasta machine has been out on the counter for the past couple of weeks. It is compact, stout, heavy for its size, and manual.

Maintaining a Long-term Blog


I've been posting to this site for a dozen years. I was twenty-nine when I started, an enthusiastic home cook with a creative streak, and a good number of cookbooks.

Coconut Quinoa Bowl


I'm looking at the photo I'm posting here, and realizing it looks like a good number of bowls I've posted in the past.

Beet Caviar


I'm lucky to be the occasional recipient of Josey Baker experimentations. The other day Josey handed me a still-hot loaf of 100% einkorn bread - substantial, fragrant, a dark brown crumb with a craggy top-crust.

Favorites List (10.17.14)


I've been waking up on the early side lately, and tend to do a bit of reading before the sun rises. Which means(!

Spicy Chickpea and Bulgur Soup


I'm deep in the middle of a streak where I cook primarily from other people's cookbooks. Every now and then it's a groove I fall into, sometimes lasting a few weeks, other times a month or two.

Sopa Verde de Elote


Not that I need much encouraging, but I've been compiling a good number of older cookbooks - early titles by authors I love, first editions, and such.

Bar Tartine Cauliflower Salad


I'm not much of a menu collector, although I have a small stack of gems in one of my desk drawers. A good number of them are menus from past meals at Bar Tartine.

Green Juice


Everyone should have a green juice recipe in their repertoire, and this one is a ringer. Its heart and soul is straight green, not at all sweet, with a good amount of lemon-lime tang, and invigorating ginger lift.

Momo Dumplings


I'm in France right now, for a relatively quick trip. Or, another way to think of it, a quick trip flanked by two long flights.

A Good Shredded Salad


One of the things I love about having a work studio is our location. It means most days, at one point or another, I find myself standing in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown.

Muhammara


Muhammara (or mouhamara) is something I love to turn people on to. It's a traditional red pepper spread originating from Syria made with a beguiling blend of red peppers, walnuts, olive oil, pomegranate molasses, and a handful of other ingredients - depending on the cook.

Zucchini Agrodolce


I suspect we've talked about this before. I fight a losing battle to keep my kitchen under control. Looking at the counter tops this morning I see - Corsican honey, clary sage-blackberry honey, also olive blossom honey.

How to Make Ghee


I make homemade ghee from good butter every few weeks. It's a process I enjoy, and it yields one of my favorite cooking mediums.
