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 […]

Jerusalem artichokes are wonderful, knobby, difficult to clean tubers that are easy to find in the northwest this time of year at farmers markets. They are not artichokes (although they taste a bit like artichokes, hence the name and confusion) and they have no particular connection with Jerusalem (Italians called them Girasole, Italian for sunflower, […]

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. […]

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.

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 […]

Early this spring, I begged Beryl to plant a couple warm climate plants like peppers and eggplants. She tried to convince me that ours is not a warm climate and they would probably just take up space, but I insisted that she try (I wanted to see what would happen). She eventually consented and planted […]
