This is one of my favorite galette recipes. What is a galette, you ask? According to cookbook author David Leibovitz, “Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes.” My favorite part of that definition is the word freeform, which screams rustic, meaning it doesn’t […]
We ate this last night for dinner. After all these years, do you think the boys shared it with us? Nope. Do you think the boys wanted to try it? Um, nope. Some things never change. I even made it vegetarian, so it would potentially appeal to my vegetarian son. No luck.
This dish was delicious […]
The flavor in this dish was unexpected and wonderful. The lemon zest and juice brought this dish to life. I loved it so much I had two big servings. I also had it the next day for lunch. I love a meal that makes for good leftovers.
I love this dish for a number of reasons: […]
Here’s a recipe that I found on Mark Bittman’s website. I’m always looking for good vegetarian/vegan recipes because we’re trying to eat less meat and because of our friends’ dietary preferences/restrictions.

This has become a weekly staple in our house since tomato season began in August. This makes a great side-dish, and can also stand on its own as a vegetarian main course. I love to eat one for lunch as a left-over. It’s just the right size to be filling enough, but not too much.

and made it while I had access to a grill. In the Northeast, this is a great late-August, early-September recipe when eggplant and delicious tomatoes are in season.
I love to […]
Well, this isn’t the best photo, but these burgers are really terrific! They’re one of the best veggie burgers I’ve made in a while. They’re big on flavor and they have great structural integrity. They taste Italian. The relish is also a tasty addition.
I made these the other night for dinner guests and there wasn’t […]
My husband’s aunt recently had some dental work done and she’s a huge fan of my soup. Her favorite is this Lemon Parsley-and-Egg Soup, so I made her a batch of that, and I also made her a batch of this carrot soup. I love the soup. It’s quite healthy, and a great way to […]
It’s a cold and rainy night in NYC. A good night to stay inside. It’s the kind of night where I’d get a roaring fire going if we had a fireplace. I’ve mentioned before that one of my sons won’t eat meat because he can’t stand the thought of hurting an animal, so we’ve been […]
