Hello, and welcome back to our kitchen! We hope you enjoy your stay here, and we have a few notices and reminders to help you make the most of all the culinary delights awaiting you.
Meeting Henry and Margaret for the first time (though they didn’t meet us till later), and an often-overlooked fabulous breakfast dish: shirred (or baked) eggs.
The challenges of acting the guru when you have the flu… and a perfectly decent potato leek soup recipe that’s easy to make.
Repost from about a year ago: Recalling humongus 1950s breakfasts, thoughts on food insecurity in Maine, and a terrific “fuggedaboutit” focaccia with rosemary baking recipe.
Strategies and non-strategies for leftovers, plus a perfectly decent recipe for turkey (or chicken) tetrazzini.
A risky foray into male and female brains… and a terrific Greek lemon cake with a coin hidden inside – a traditional New Year’s Day treat.
Some thoughts on a hygge-filled Thanksgiving, and a couple of games to play if things get, you know, kind of slow.
Snippets of memories from Boston’s ultra-exclusive Somerset Club, and another shameless promotion of one of my favorites, Welsh Rarebit.
A bit of weirdness on a PBS shoot with Mike Farrell of M*A*S*H, and a bit of wacky accidental comedy as a refresher. Mike Farrell = Class Act, amazing guy.
Ciao, Sicily (hello and good-bye)! Our trip to Trapani, and the best way to make chicken parmesan (or parmigiana). Abondanza!
