The theme of this month’s mixology monday, hosted by the folks over at eGullet, is “Dizzy Dairy”: anything with milk, cream, butter, cheese, eggs, or the like. Dairy has of course had a solid place in the world of cocktails for ages, and it was a good chance to look around for ideas. I’m a […]

Until this past year, my homemade French fries had never quite hit the mark. It seems so simple, and it is very simple, but somehow, my fries never approached the divine fries that I’ve gotten at some of my favorite restaurants (the fries at Schultzy’s come to mind, for those in Seattle).

Our zucchini plant continues to produce bountiful and frightfully large zucchinis, firmly securing its place as the star of the season in our garden. Yesterday as we were leaving the house for work, we noticed two monstrous zucchinis that, if we’re not mistaken, were just little babies last week. People complain about large zucchinis, but […]
