Scotch Broth; semonlina-with-bay patties; chard stems – 16 May 2017

Pizza with eggplant, red pepper, and feta – 9 December 2016

We’re in “using up stuff in the fridge” mode, and I used this pizza to take on the Bulgarian feta that I bought for … something last month, I think. It’s not as boldly opinionated as I usually think of … Continue reading

Sopa de Ajo; green beans – 13 June 2015

Carrot soup; cheese – 22 January 2015
