Weeknight Collard Greens

‘Tis the season, I suppose, but I’ve been running around like a loon the past week or so. It’s hard to keep dinners wholesome and healthful when at the end of a long day all I really want to do … Continue reading

Salmon Cakes

Broiling a nice piece of salmon is just about the fastest dinner possible, and one I rely on pretty often on busy weeknights. Sometimes I’ll dress it up with a mustard glaze or yogurt dill sauce, but nine times out … Continue reading

Garlicky Shrimp & White Beans

There isn’t enough space here, not enough on the whole wide Web, to properly give due my love for the gutsy, earthy food of Spain. I love the garlic and olive oil and tomatoes, the shellfish and chiles, the lusty … Continue reading

Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Panini

It’s been raining for a week now, and the thought of sloshing over to the market in driving rains (and the occasional hailstorm) hasn’t held much appeal. Even our exuberant puppy doesn’t want to head outside. Can’t we just hunker … Continue reading

Anyone out there in need of a pick-me-up? Not enough cute in your day so far? Allow me to introduce Tiggy: ten pounds of wriggly wags and kisses, a sweet and joyful pit bull terrier/mystery mix we adopted from a … Continue reading
