A fabulous Sicilian fish stew that takes some prep and a lot of focus – keep other people out of the kitchen! Don’t talk on the phone or text anyone or watch TV. Just cook.
Great heart-healthy mashed potatoes this week – no dairy or butter or other fatty stuff like that. Once again, Mediterranean cuisine has the answer (it’s actually French, but from Provence, which is sort of close to the Mediterranean).

Great gluten-free cookies! And a pretty Grinch-worthy good-bye this year to Christmas as we know and love it.
Baked baby Brussels sprouts made easy and tasty. Also, introducing Mussel Ridge Market in Spruce Head, and some random bits of insight and humor.
It takes balls to do the holidays in style. Bourbon balls, that is. Also, happy to say my novels are all now in the Rockland Public Library – thanks, Amy Levine!
Glorious Spam, Velveeta, Tater Tots, White Castle sliders! Sometimes I’m overcome with a powerful urge to eat the way much of America eats – just not too often. So today we binge-shopped at Hannaford…
