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 […]

One of our favorite parts of cooking is using vegetables that we grow. On the houseboat, garden space is obviously limited, but we have a couple big boxes on the back porch that my dad made us, a ton of big pots, and some space in a raised bed in the lawn off the dock. […]

So I’ve had this song stuck, I mean S-T-U-C-K in my head for the last week or so. It’s called Horchata, and it’s the first track on the new Vampire Weekend album. Whatever you do . . . don’t hit the play button… Did you do it? You did, didn’t you. I had never heard […]

Beryl and I have been getting a CSA box from the good people at Local Roots Farm this summer. Each Tuesday we pick up a big box and digging into it feels a bit like Christmas. We can usually count on some lettuce, but the rest of the box is a surprise. We’ve gotten purslane, […]

When I was younger, I listened to tapes of stories by the storyteller Jay O’Callahan. A quarter century later, there are lines from those tapes that repeat in my head. As I crest a steep hill on my bike, I think, “I did it oh I did it oh I did it oh I did […]
