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.
Orphaned by circumstance and the storm… and a reprise of Fish ‘n’ Potatoes, an enduring Maritime favorite.
Kids need “someone else’s back yard.” Mine came from an unusual place – my next door neighbor Betsy. Plus, a simple traditional recipe for fried corn meal mush. A bit of nostalgia and one of the best comfort foods I’ve ever had.
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.
