Pizza Margherita; Brussels sprouts – 12 December 2017

OMG Doug Jones won! Whoopeee!! Plus, we had a pizza Margherita, always a good thing, not least b/c it’s so easy (once you’ve got frozen cubes of sauce and frozen pizza dough). I defrosted 5 cubes of Margherita sauce, and … Continue reading

Omelette with piperade; orange, onion, and olive salad – 10 December 2017

This was the last thing D wished to make with the piperade, and there was just enough left – which might have been by design, come to think of it… He made a 3-egg omelette with just a bit of … Continue reading

Pizza with Italian sausage, tomato sauce, arugula, and cheeses; orange, olive, and onion salad – 9 December 2017

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

Using stuff up – 17 October 2017

Roasted cabbage with Italian sausage – 7 October 2017

Risotto in lamb stock with mushrooms and rosemary; haricots – 4 October 2017

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

Cold “poblano quiche”; marinated red peppers – 2 Sept 2017

Well, this experiment didn’t work, but it was worth a try I guess. Not awful, just not inviting. Last night I cooked an extra poblano quiche for tonight, wanting to see how it would be when cold. Answer: dense, not … Continue reading

Pizza with Italian sausage, onion, and broccoli rabe – 3 July 2017

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