Cheese

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 […]

It is apple season in Washington.  This year, Washington produced over 5.5 billion pounds of apples.  Billion with a “B”.  That means that millions and millions of apples have been flooding into the farmers’ markets and stores, and dozens and dozens have landed in our kitchen.  The apples that we have in our kitchen did […]

I suspect this dish was a success. The recipe I used was a combination of recipes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s The River Cottage Meat Book, and Nigella Lawson’s, How to be a Domestic Goddess. Fearnley-Whittingstall and Lawson are both british, and they both seem to really like steak and kidney pie. I don’t know if those […]

There are a handful of Portland restaurants that we’ve had our eyes on. Last year for my birthday, Beryl took me down south for a weekend of friends and food. We went to a couple restaurants, but the highlight of the weekend (outside of reconnecting with my wonderful musician friend Katie Sawicki and her partner […]

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 […]

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 […]

We have a very prolific zucchini plant this year. At first, we were hesitant to pick them, not wanting to waste our precious few gems without careful consideration of how they’d be used. Somewhere along the way though, Beryl discovered that if you pick them, it only encourages the plant to produce more veggies. And […]

This came together pretty fast and was very satisfying. The only thing I would change is the use of the chard stem – the texture of the stem was distracting from then nice soft greens even though they were thoroughly cooked. If you do want to use them, just make sure you really cook them […]

This past spring, Beryl manned the Sunseed Farm booth at the Ballard Farmers’ Market selling veggie starts. Nick, the owner, stocked 6 different kinds of basil plants: Genovese, Italian large leaf, purple petra, lemon, thai, and cinnamon basil. Beryl came home with all varieties but the lemon basil and planted no less than eleven basil […]
