Fettucine with grilled radicchio and endive, toasted walnuts, and gorgonzola dolce – 5 February 2019

D had said we had Roquefort to use up, and I didn’t check on that, but planned this dinner for the purpose. When I went to get it out of the fridge (at 6:15) it was not Roquefort at all, … Continue reading

Spaghetti in oyster mushroom cream sauce – again; pear salad – 23 September 2018

When we had this on the 21st, D used the “stems” of the very delicate, white oyster mushrooms, and they turned out to be rather tough, such that they interrupted the experience of the pasta. He decided to buy more … Continue reading

Four-cheese pizza; salad – 26 August 2018

This is the second four-cheese pizza I’ve made recently. I haven’t written the previous one up yet, so this will be my recipe post, I guess, since somehow the entire recipe doesn’t seem to appear on this blog. The original … Continue reading

Nasturtium pizza; lettuce salad – 4 August 2018

The intersection of nasturtium season with tomato season is brief. By the time good tomatoes appear in the farmers’ markets, the nasturtiums, being unwatered for months (we’re good Californians) are drying up, though they will still produce the a few … Continue reading

Pizza with walnuts, gorgonzola dolce, and arugula – 6 December 2017

We have a half-pillow of arugula from the Bowl, since R found a pillow and asked us to split. Our half I think was pressed into too small a bag, and is a bit broken up and therefore its lifetime … Continue reading

Pizza with tomatoes, sage, and gorgonzola – 28 September 2017

Our sage plant is going great guns, and we want to use as much of its bounty as possible before it goes relatively dormant for the winter. I said I’d make a pizza. D says “but we want to use … Continue reading

Pizza with figs, cheeses, arugula, and caramelized onion – 8 September 2017

Personal four-cheese pizza, again; yellow beans – 6 August 2017

Personal four-cheese pizza; kale from the garden – 5 August 2017

I decided halfway through the day that even if a mass dinner was to be gone to after D&R&E’s show in SF, I would not run in by BART and bus to get there. Two days in a row running … Continue reading

Personal Four Cheese pizza; kale – 1 March (ack!) 2017

When I was at Cheese Board yesterday buying a half light-bake pizza for 2 lunches, there was no line and no one waiting, and I strained to think of a cheese I should be buying. Rejected the idea b/c I … Continue reading

Pizza with radicchio, walnuts, and gorgonzola dolce – 7 December 2016

D found a bag with three heads of radicchio for 89 cents/lb at the Bowl last week, and bought them, not particularly knowing how they would end up being used. I thought of two ways to use them, and this … Continue reading

Cannellini and prosciutto salad (aka “speck”); prosciutto-wrapped figs; green beans – 21 June 2015

A 12-picture day! – lots of memorable food, including a Father’s Day treat from R, of course. I have a semi-choreographed ballet of ingredients-to-use-up, of which dinner was a part, but I can never keep all the elements of it … Continue reading

Pizza with figs, gorgonzola, and arugula – 19 June 2015

I tried a pizza tonight based on one we’d loved at Pizza Moda. This was not as sumptuous, but one must recognize that restaurants make sumptuous dishes in part b/c they don’t have to worry about your health 😉 So … Continue reading

Return to Pizza Moda – 17 December 2014

Unsubtly, I looked up Pizza Moda today (my birthday “trad.”) and discovered they had, back on the menu, the first pizza we’d had there, last January, that really sold us on the place in one bite. Later, I called D … Continue reading

Spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce; apples with buffalo gorgonzola – 6 November 2014

Fig and Gorgonzola pizza at Pizza Moda – 29 October 2014

Pizza from Arizmendi – 3 October 2014

Pizza with toasted walnuts, gorgonzola dolce, and arugula – 13 August 2012

Still trying to use up a mound of most excellent baby wild arugula, I searched my three blogs for past recipes. I found this pizza in 2010. It was delicious, and I was really glad that I had a blog back … Continue reading
