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

Roast pheasant with bacon and thyme; mixed wild rice with wild mushrooms; strange, bright-colored pear thing – 23 November 2017

My last winter-celebration dinner at home was TG 2014 – I’ve been off to visit Mom while I could, which was great, but I did miss our big cooking events. So, here we had a good one. E wanted to … Continue reading

Spaghetti with fresh San Marzano tomato sauce – 21 October 2017

Our wonderful neighbor S came by earlier in the week with a large bowlful of San Marzano tomatoes, which they grew and couldn’t use all of. D resolved to make them into a sauce, which is apparently why Italians grow … Continue reading

Nicoise of small round things; Romano beans 18 August 2017

Leftover nasturtium pasta; broccoli – 21 June 2017

Panzanella; Calabrian sausage; grilled veggies – 17 June 2017

This dinner had a complicated history, and ended up sorta one-off in a couple of places from where it began. I wanted to make a panzanella recipe from Weber’s Real Grilling, which has grilled bread and grilled eggplant in it … Continue reading

Ravioli with ricotta and spinach in sage butter sauce; zucchini – 5 June 2017

We bought ricotta for an experimental ravioli recipe in May, and had a pile of it left, as well as sage leaves in the fridge (from the same dinner, I think) and ancient “cut-leaf” spinach in the freezer. I pulled … Continue reading

Pizza with eggplant and roasted red pepper – 4 June 2017

Ricotta and prosciutto ravioli with sage-butter sauce; English peas – 26 May 2017

I used Paul Bertolli’s pasta recipe: 1 cup flour (I scant this) and 1 large egg. “Large” being a variable quantity, I usually add a bit of water to gather up the unwetted bits of flour. Knead, form into a … Continue reading

Spaghetti with defrosted fresh tomato sauce with new mushrooms and hard sausage – 5 May 2017

Bitty bit of fresh pasta with tomato/chevre sauce; asparagus with aioli – 3 May 2017

Still using up the Laura Chenel goat cheese we opened. Costco is now selling this in a terrible container – too large, and too vulnerable once opened. Bring back the 11-oz logs! But we make an attempt 🙂 I weighed … Continue reading

Patricia Wells’ chevre with tomato sauce, olives, and herbs; kale from the garden – 1 May 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 prosciutto, arugula, olives, and mozzarella di bufala – 21 April 2017

I thought of cooking this pizza after looking up “arugula” in this blog. I used the previous post here to construct the pizza. I used two balls of mozz. The pizza ended up very wet (I actually poured off some … Continue reading

Eating up the ends of cheeses; marinated olives; bean salad – 20 April 2017

Baked “quadrucci” with ham and prosciutto; green beans – 19 April 2017

Spaghetti with re-refurbished sauce – 9 April 2017

I didn’t get the sourdough recipe started yesterday (or today, for that matter) so no pizza tonight. With D and me doing our taxes and taking a workout walk (mild – D’s foot still hurts if he walks too fast) … 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

Grilled lamb with “Indian spices”; cumin-spiced kabocha squash; naan – 3 November 2016

I discovered that my remaining half of a large kabocha squash was still doing fine in the fridge, so thought about ways to use it. I came up with one, then decided perhaps it needed lamb to go with, then … Continue reading
