Potato, leek, and gruyere tart with thyme; salad – 23 March 2019

Kabocha and potato soup – 11 February 2019

Morcilla and potatoes; salad with avocado – 18 November 2018

Sorrel soup with leeks and potatoes – 1 October (OMG) 2018

I had been noticing the unused sorrel and unused chives happily growing in the garden (the chives happier than the sorrel, actually – one plant looks a little fall-ish). Remembering that while at the Bowl, I bought a couple of … Continue reading

Baked Garden Vegetables – 17 March 2018

Not sure why I got a bee in my bonnet about having this right now, except that it seems to me a nice cold weather comfort food. And of course, it’s delicious! The only problem with this concept is that … Continue reading

Personal pizza with potatoes, ham, and pancetta – 27 January 2018

[Filling in missing posts on 8 February] Another a bit-too-lazy dinner for one – I used the second half of the defrosted pizza dough, and made an ok but not great pizza. Cooked up the next-to-last round of pancetta, and … Continue reading

Fettucine with pea pods and mushrooms – 24 January 2018
