    Here, in the US, we have a tendency to, usually, serve pastas with heavy tomato sauces or white, creamy cheese sauces, but some of the best pasta dishes are simply pasta tossed with a good amount of olive oil (or butter) and some fresh or sautéed vegetables, especially come summertime when those...

    I love steak. And chicken. And bacon. Did I mention that I love bacon? You're probably wondering why someone who has very clear carnivorous obsessions tendencies would be posting about chickpeas. You couldn't get anything further removed from a steak than this humble legume. But these easy...

    Like most of the country, August has come to Wisconsin with a vengeance. While I am not overly bothered by the heat-you can't be if you've spent most of your life in professional kitchens-this heatwave has caught me off guard and I find myself seeking cooling refreshments as often as possible...

    When you've got more (very) ripe peaches than you should eat in one sitting, it's the perfect time to make this easy gluten-free peach crisp! With oats, brown rice flour, blueberries, and a sprinkle of nutmeg, this easy peach crisp is the epitome of summer. In our house, summer is a time for...

    Years ago, when I attended New England Culinary Institute there was a little, local distillery that made a cucumber flavored gin. We had discovered it by accident, but I was glad we had as it made the greatest Gin & Tonics I had ever tasted. While the juniper flavor was still there it didn't...

    If you've spent any modicum of time with me, you will know that I am an unabashed carnivore. You'd be hard pressed to find me turning down a nicely grilled steak. Or bacon. Or chicken wings. Or bacon. You get the picture. But with the return of the warmer weather, I am starting to gravitate...

    It's been a while. Baby R and Little E have been keeping my busy. But the longer days and sunny weather have me inspired. We happened to have a bag of romaine hearts in the fridge left over from a burger debacle and I was searching for something different to do with them that didn't involve...

    There's nothing I love more than strawberries, and while the local season is basically over, you can still get them organically at the produce store. My mom grabbed a couple cartons of said organic strawberries for me Baby E a few days ago. They were already quite ripe and there was no way we...

    The fog has rolled in and it definitely feels like Fall. Pumpkins and crackly leaves abound and cozy, soft sweaters have replaced all the less substantial items in my closet. I love Fall. I think that it's probably my favourite season, but tonight I was struck by a pang of nostalgia for summer...

    I've been experimenting with pork ribs lately so I thought I would share this simple St. Louis style barbecue ribs recipe. It really is more of a method than a recipe, which follows with the way I tend to cook. It was a bit of a mad dash to get this stuff ready for our guests so I don't have...

    We went to visit a friend for dinner on Sunday and she sent us home with some blueberry crisp. I had had two helpings at her place, it was that good. I couldn't wait to have it cold the next day (yesterday) but I really wanted to have it with some vanilla yogurt. Since we didn't have any in the...

    So as promised, here is part 2! We spent all of our meal times out on the back deck. With a view like this, who wouldn't? The cottage had a full kitchen and a grill outside so that made meals with Baby E much easier. We made all but one meal at the cottage. Although D and I love to explore...

    D and I both wanted to get away from the city for a while. But with Baby E, things are not always so simple. We decided to stay close (about a hour and a half drive) but go far enough so that we would feel like we were actually on a vacation. We decided on Camano Island, WA and we are not sorry...

    Nothing epitomizes summer cooking more than grilling. However, grilling can be very confusing. The more recipes, cookbooks, and perspectives you encounter, the greater the diversity of opinion that arises. When do you apply the barbeque sauce? Gas or charcoal? Flip the food only once or...

    The most vibrant aroma of summer comes not from the barbecue, but from the garden. Few can quibble that the verdant smell of tomato leaves rubbed against your canvas gloves or wafting scents from just torn oregano leaves does not define summer. Or plucking the swelling cantaloupes from their...
