Pear & Goat Cheese Appetizer: Easy and Elegant

It was Valentine’s Day, and instead of wrangling a reservation in a cramped restaurant we spent time planning a menu, shopping, and cooking together. We were in search of fresh figs for our appetizer which were woefully out of season. It’s hard to beat the enchantment of figs for indulging in simple pleasures. But alas, there were no figs. […]

Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

Lately, I’ve been cooking like my hair is on fire. I have a self-imposed deadline of March 31 to finish writing my first cookbook, even if it kills me. (If you don’t hear from me in April, that’s why.) In the midst of proofing recipes for the book, a friend was looking for ways to replace or […]

According to food trend gurus, Brussels sprouts are on the rise. Considering these little cabbage buds fall just behind a visit to the dentist on the least favorite list, there’s little fear of world domination.

Buttermilk-Cilantro Skirt Steak -- Tablescape (1 of 1)

Summer Gatherings and Skirt Steak Tacos

Glancing into the backyard all that remained from our barbecue was a full heart and a deck scattered with tables and chairs like a restaurant patio. Few leftovers marked the occasion of friends gathered around tables under a stormy sky. Yes, rain. Ugh. I’m not even sure how many times we hauled cushions back and forth. Finally, […]

Recovered Life and Juiced Greens Recipe

I still get emotional when I think about it, what life was like just two months ago and now. My brain works again. I can actively participate in conversation. Walk miles. Savor what I’m eating.
