I had to use up the tomato juice from my gazpacho but somehow and I was at a loss. Because of some good chowhound suggestions I decided to make a sort of pilaf (inspired by the cous cous idea). I have been catching up on my Top Chef and one of the things a contestant […]

It is always fun to rediscover a cookbook and learn something. On Sunday I rediscovered the Moosewood cookbook and finally succeeded to cook eggplant. I love eggplant but when I have tried to make it it usually comes out too mushy or tough. This method is extremely easy and then you can dress it in […]

I have recently become completely addicted to Cook’s Illustrated. I bought a copy then within about a week I bought a subscription to the magazine and shortly thereafter the online site.

This is a quick weeknight dish especially in summer when it is nice to avoid the stove. To turn it into a meal try serving chopped hard boiled egg on top. You can also speed up he prep time by chopping up the vegetables in a food processor, just process them separately. However, I find […]

I know I just made squash the other day, but it is just so gorgeous this time of year I can’t help myself it is too good. This is actually a totally accidental recipe. I had the cut chives and minced ginger left on the cutting board from making a seared tuna appetizer, and since […]

My little rosemary bush, which I planted back in April, is finally looking healthy enough for me to start harvesting from it. About time too, it has taken all my constraint to avoid cutting it before it got settled. Thank goodness for the healthy parsley, oregano, and sage which I have been using to satiate […]
