One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. Two fish, three fish, blue fish, green fish. Green fish? Oh me! Oh my! One of them is not like the others, But don’t ask us why. Go ask your mothers. I love Dr. Seuss, even if I can’t do parody. Sigh.

Une petite tartelette à la moutarde, recipe courtesy of Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, made by MF courtesy of  participation in French Fridays with Dorie.  A savory tart (think quiche) with carrots, leeks, rosemary, and mustard mixed into the custard base, all that needs to be said about this is that it was spectacular!  Bon […]

I can’t possibly be the only person who, upon arriving home at ten or eleven at night, decides that now is the perfect time to cook.  Regardless of how long or arduous of a day it’s been, it is nice to move around a bit at night, and it’s particularly nice when that moving is […]

Though I am a full-blooded American, with both sides of my family in this country before it even was a country, there are some words I learned in French before I knew their English counterparts existed.  Most of them have to do with food.  Bay leaves to me will always be laurier.  ‘Bay’ means tons […]

Ottolenghi’s okra with tomato + preserved lemon

Okra!  What a funny-sounding word!  Those vowels on the outside making it sound all croaky.  And the two oddball consonants stuck together in the middle.  It seems to take up more time and space to say than four measly letters would suggest, insisting that you pay the poor, dejected thing a little bit of notice […]

Oh dear.  That isn’t what I expected.  Those Robiola-stuffed tomatoes from The New York Times, I mean.  My food didn’t look like theirs, and I really really hope that it didn’t taste like theirs.  Following recipes is not my favorite thing to do, nor is it anything I do with particular frequency or flair.  But […]

And this blog is not forgotten.  It’s just taken a little rest.  September can be hard!  I hate summer often, but its end can be so sad.  The tomatoes, the eggplant, all that zucchini, and especially those times for lingering over coffee, only partially drunk because it will soon be time for lunch, those times […]

This is not my greatest photo or presentation of a plate.  The time and place and taste were more important anyway, and I don’t think we ate before 10 o’clock that night, after much aperitif-ing, giggling, and the like.  So can we please move on? It may be one of the best meals I’ve ever […]
