It’s been a while since we posted… it’s a long story… it might be a while before we post again, but we had to get this up because it is fantastic. Perhaps May doesn’t seem like the month for roasted birds, but with the May we’ve been having here, roast bird felt right. We’ve roasted […]

This was the center piece of our wedding feast. For our particular wedding feast, we needed a dish that we could either A) make in advance or that B) we could make once we got to the island (as previously mentioned, said island has limited electricity and limited gas stove space, thus limiting our options […]

Beryl and I have learned a little bit about goat meat in the last couple years. First, we got some goat at the farmers market and we learned we absolutely loved goat meat: we found it had a slightly more complex flavor than beef, without being too “gamey” like mutton (a flavor we have both […]

Asparagus is finally here.   This is very good news.  It’s good news for a number of reasons and this dish is one of them.  Talley found it a few years ago on 101 Cookbooks when we were in a hurry for something filling, healthy and quick.  Now it’s a recipe that we go to […]

In the Zuni Cafe Cookbook, there is a recipe for quail and sausage braised with grapes. It is Judy Rodgers’ take on a Umbrian dish called Salsiccia all’Uva. The quail is an embellishment; the traditional dish is simply browned sausages nestled in a bed of cooked grapes, which is what we made. Ms. Rodgers wrote […]

It’s been a while since we’ve posted. We got caught up in the vacation spirit and have taken a break from photo-documenting our food. It’s been great. We hope you’ve all had a nice holiday season as well. We + camera are back in the kitchen now, armed with a plethora of new cookbooks and […]

This post is for “Nancy O”, who spied pictures of our Beef Stroganoff on flickr and asked if we’d be posting it soon. It’s certainly a good time for this dish, at least here in Seattle where temperatures have been dipping into the 20s and even the teens. I made this last week when we […]

Here’s a quick classic dish with an incredible tastiness to effort ratio. When we just can’t muster up the effort for an elaborate dinner, or when we’re in a bit of a hurry, we turn to this dish. It comes together in about a half an hour, tastes fantastic, and feels comforting. There are certainly […]
