Herb-crusted cauliflower with green beans and small tomatoes – 18 May 2019

This is a complicated recipe till you plot it out – then it’s not hard to follow. The problem is that there are several threads, which split and/or join one another. A flow chart comes in handy. Here’s where I … Continue reading

Supercaulifloweristicexpialidocious – 12 December 2018

Wow. Not sure how I found this recipe – probably some ad popup that looked good enough to follow (and, after all, would have said “epicurious” so no doubt worth it). Anyway, it was absolutely scrumptious! The reviews on the … Continue reading

Penne with Molinari pepperoni, arugula, and sundried tomatoes; cold veggies – 19 February 2018

This was a delicious pasta – a takeoff on this one from Epicurious, a favorite of R&E’s, but changed a bit due to ingredients on hand plus a whim or two. Also, this is written for two servings, not 8. … Continue reading

Omelette; frozen peas; cauliflower in two colors – 21 November 2014

I evidently completely failed to write anything down about this dinner. Clearly an omelette, and clearly D made it. I remember him wanting to use up the peas in the freezer, and almost tossing them b/c the package smelled freezery, … Continue reading

Spaghetti with fresh cranberry beans, breadcrumbs, and parsley; green cauliflower – 18 November 2014

Snow White Soup – 26 May 2011

How’s this for a stark-looking meal? 🙂 D made an old favorite of mine, which I don’t think he’s made before. It’s from Alan Hooker’s “Vegetarian Gourmet Cookery”, a cookbook we got from D’s Mom, perhaps… wow, must be 30 … Continue reading

Pub dinner at home – 5 April 2011

I left work after 7:20 and arrived home before D, so I thought dinner (he’s cooking) would be rather late. He had a plan, however, and it was a really fun and yummy dinner. He cut chunks of a cheese … Continue reading

Brie and bread before the City Council meeting – 8 February 2011

D got this dinner together before the City Council meeting, while I wrote a 90th birthday card to my uncle. Then we spent about 3 hours listening, and also speaking, at City Council. Love-hate – it’s a major pain to … Continue reading

1 July 2010 – Pasta with mushrooms, toasted pine nuts, parsley, and Romano; cold veggies

This is probably D’s signature dish. He sautees mushrooms and pinenuts, and then adds parsley, and tosses cooked spaghetti with the mix. He uses a potato peeler to make ultra-thin slices of Romano for over the top. It’s great! Another … Continue reading

30 June 2010 – Omelette with Emmentaler and scallions; turnips and cauliflower; grilled bread with favas

D is cooking now – it’s really fun to have two cooks – much more variety. He has practiced Julia Child’s way of making omelettes, so they are fluffy and light. This one was particularly tasty. He used two eggs … Continue reading

17 February 2010 – Linguine with tomatoes, sage, and goat cheese

This is a variant of a favorite recipe from The Pasta Bible – a great cookbook. I had intended to make this previously, but ran out of time, so had pesto instead that night. I had since eaten up some … Continue reading

10 February 2010 – Veggies and raspberries?

Obviously, this is somewhat facetious, but it really is all I had to eat after I got home. There was an event at work at which there was lots of finger food, including hummus, and I cannot resist hummus. Also … Continue reading
