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.
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.
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.
