Recalling a few of my salty years with my Muscongus Bay Sloop, and a rich and hearty French onion soup with gruyere.
The only chicken fried steak recipe you’ll ever need, and a brief foray into wretched road food from chain restaurants.
The challenges of acting the guru when you have the flu… and a perfectly decent potato leek soup recipe that’s easy to make.
Strategies and non-strategies for leftovers, plus a perfectly decent recipe for turkey (or chicken) tetrazzini.
Sticking my political neck out this week – in unabashed support of Zak Ringelstein for U.S. Senate, and Jonathan Fulford for House of Representatives from Maine’s 2nd congressional district. Both have a tough slog in the months ahead to beat the odds… but they’re on their way.
A brief memoir of a spontaneous 2-week trip to Roatan Island, off Honduras, in 1972, with no reservations anywhere – and just a few hints why I wouldn’t seek to return. Some things happen once, and should stay that way.
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.
Excerpts from James Michener’s “Centennial,” and thoughts on the American lure of isolation and being alone.
Bourbon balls! Easy-to-make, truffle-like, tongue-tantalizing orbs of holiday joy. I make these every year for family and far-flung friends – it’s a great solution to the “what-do-I-give-so-and-so” problem some of us face each year.
My review of “The Lion King: A Brothers’ Tale” at the Strom Theater in Rockport this past weekend. Narrative dance fully reclaimed.
