A few thoughts on “personal architecture” – as in, how are you made? Plus, my favoritest ever Greek dish – Moussaka!
No food this time – just an account of perhaps the most extraordinary half year in my life, in Brattleboro, Vermont, in the late ’90s.
A wonderful, rich baked scallop recipe, and Margaret recalls the late Cecil Caine at his most ornery.
A perfect, rich, genuine Southern pecan pie recipe that uses no corn syrup, and some easy chatter about “Just who do you think you are?” with one possible approach to finding an answer: the Johari Window.
I try to make the famous two-slit experiment in quantum physics simple and accessible. Uh huh. How do you do that when the final results are utter nonsense? Also a terrific, smooth and rich Bolognese sauce – much better than the recipe I posted years ago.
Delicious and tasty chicken wings with Nigerian spices! And some thoughts on the derogatory term “trailer trash,” and people we’ve known who defy the stereotype. (They’re also in three of my four novels as significant characters).
Brief recollections of writing comedy scripts for serious corporate clients… and a great fluffy cod fritter recipe!
A brief tale of survival in southeast Utah, a great pot roast that marinates for three days, and special usage of the 35th most common word in the English language.
Ruminations from my back porch — millennial slang, 60s slang, a great celery seed salad dressing, and Mainers are getting psyched to see Troy Jackson run for Governor in 2018.
Recalling humongus 1950s breakfasts, thoughts on food insecurity in Maine, and a terrific “fuggedaboutit” focaccia with rosemary baking recipe.
