Go Ask Alice

The results of the Alice Waters Baked Goat Cheese and Lettuce Salad were no less than perfect.  Mind you, this is a bit of a luxury around this cookery, but I can’t believe it took me so long to finally try this recipe.  It’s out there . . . in cookbooks, for sale on Web […]

Frames of Falling Slowly

So here’s to “Falling Slowly” and a thanks to those who recognized this piece of work, the artists . . . and their message of hope. 

Falling Slowly

My husband just cranked up a YouTube clip in the cyber cafe and I’m falling in to the chorus with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova as they perform “Falling Slowly.”  This cookery is a space to digest life’s ingredients.  It’s not glamorous, but as I load my dishwasher this evening, I’m relaxed because no one’s listening.  I’m […]

Goat Cheese, Please

The time has arrived.  I’ve been overlooking the Alice Waters Baked Goat Cheese with Lettuce Salad far too long.  But it’s happening tonight . . . right here in the cookery.  Have you tried it?  I can’t wait to share this.  Let me know if you have any twists on this salad!

Check […]

The life of the party begins in the cookery

The weekend found me spending a good stretch of it around the cookery – but the blessing was the great company.  Food comes to life in new ways when we share it with friends and family.  Don’t be shy!  You know who you are.  I’ll be posting my “Road to Beijing Chicken” recipe on  Cookery Content later this week.  Until […]
