Omelette with avocado, salsa, and Monterey Jack – 9 March 2019

This is probably my favorite omelette, though D is not as entranced. I make this one, he makes the others (which are excellent, and totally different – Julia Childy). I make the two omelettes separately, one egg for me, typically … Continue reading

Salmon and Scallops Provencale at Ned’s – 26 January 2019

B&L suggested dinner at Ned’s, and I found a really good meal there that was pretty light and veggie-rich, though still rather on the large side. The fact that I ordered an extra order of breadlets didn’t help. They were … Continue reading

Fresh tomato soup; Boucherin and crackers – 16 November 2018

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

Fondue with borrowed fondue pot; roasted asparagus – 12 November 2017

Bread, cheese, and fruit before the symphony – 5 October 2017

Spaghetti with mushrooms, pine nuts, and parsley – 23 April 2017

We puzzled over what to have when – forgetting I’d bought a poblano to use up the cream in a “poblano quiche” – and settled on D’s signature pasta, since we had both mushrooms and parsley wanting using. Mushrooms sauteed … Continue reading

Pizza with dandelion greens, bacon, scallions and lemon – 14 December 2014

Salad on the deck – 13 May 2014

It was in the high 80s here, and the 90s where I work. D’s workplace overheats in hot weather, so he decided to take today (and tomorrow) off, instead of the weekend, which is supposed to be temperate. And, he … Continue reading

Cacio e pere; warm apple and sage salad – 5 January 2014

Since more than half of the ravioli filling was left over from last night’s recipe from Saveur, D suggested just making the ravioli again, but adding more pear, since we could not really taste the pear last night. I did … Continue reading

Nicoise Salad – 17 August 2013

Pizza with zucchini, feta, corn, and cilantro – 5 June 2013

Tonight’s pizza is from The Cheese Board’s wonderful cookbook, though I have altered it a bit. I had cilantro left over, and when running down a list of possible pizzas, this one stood out for that reason. Also b/c we’ve … Continue reading

Tilapia fillet cooked in salsa – 2 June 2013

Eggplant/aioli sandwiches; salad with eggs and salsice – 7 May 2013
