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). Not a lot to laugh at because I’m cranky with a head cold and sore shoulder. Grrrr.
Baked baby Brussels sprouts made easy and tasty. Also, introducing Mussel Ridge Market in Spruce Head, and some random bits of insight and humor.
Quick and easy butternut pie recipe from Greece, where olive oil is king. Addictive snacking!
Recipe for a terrific real-Southwest tamale pie with a soft cheesy “crust” to feed four, and a few loose funny-ish ends. The kitchen smells soooo good when this is baking!
Easy and delicious shepherd’s pie recipe, using ground lamb, olive oil, and almost no butter. Terrifically savory!
Fabulous rice noodles with peanut chicken curry made with dozens and dozens of ingredients, and remembering (with affection and unanswered questions) the 1970 hit song “Mill Valley.”
Cruising through Iowa, and a quick cheese casserole (what I call a Poor Man’s Soufflé) that’s perfect when you have no clue what you’re going to make for supper.
Authentic New Mexican Green Chile Stew – an easy-to-organize party for your tastebuds! And an excursion into quantum weirdness at Ski Rio in far northern New Mexico.
