Add this one to your post-holiday menus. It’s on ours. This is one of our favorite ways to prepare cauliflower, and after a week of complicated, heavy meals, this easy, slightly spicy food is just about right. It still has some richness due to the toasted nuts, but that’s offset by the chilies and ginger. […]

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 […]

We first made this recipe from the Feburary 2005 edition of Food & Wine at Thanksgiving a couple of years back. It was very well received and we’ve kept it on the rotation ever since. The manchego almond sauce here is a refreshing twist on your typical cream sauce, but it definitely still has that […]

It was a minor revelation when I first realized that risotto could be considered more than just a dish made with Arborio or Carnaroli rice. Instead, it became a method or a technique that could be applied to any dried ingredient that cooks in liquid for a while, such as pasta, orzo, or in this […]

Here is an easy soup that we make a lot.  We got it out of a book called The Wine Lover’s Cookbook that we picked up at a used bookstore a couple years ago.  It’s actually wound up being a really good book, we’ve used it a lot.  This soup has a fairly long list […]

Today is cold and rainy in Seattle, a reminder that summer is over and winter is on its way.  There is an upside to this however: Chai is back in season on the houseboat.  Chai has become something of a morning ritual for us.   I will usually start the spices and the water simmering […]

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). They’ve been edible, […]

We are continuing to work our way through our crop of monster zucchinis. One of the ideas we mentioned last week was to make a lasagna where zucchini took the place of the pasta. This week we got around to trying it. Now, I love pasta–a lot–so the idea of a lasagna without the pasta […]

Berry season is tapering down just as corn is taking off, so this is a good time to share this recipe of fresh blueberries and roasted corn. We hope that you will like as much as we do. The richness of the salad depends on concentrating the sugar in the corn a bit, so it […]

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 […]
