Tartine's Salted Chocolate Rye Cookies
The first time I made these cookies, I told my kids, "These better be REALLY good, because I had to make a special trip to the store to buy that crazy rye flour." Bottom line: MAKE that trip!  Yep, these cookies ARE really  good. And why wouldn't they be? Y...

Got this recipe from our friends the Passarello's who dry a couple hundred pounds of apricots every summer. So, yeah, they know a thing or two about apricots!

Soy Sauce Red Radishes
These radishes are deliciously refreshing - cold, crunchy, salty and sweet. The recipe is from the classic cookbook, The Modern Art of Chinese Cooking by Barbara Tropp. Barbara Tropp was on track to become a doctorate of Chinese poetry at Princeton, but got...

January CSA Goodies
This month, our CSA box was filled with traditional winter vegetables and fruits, some familiar favorites, others "Huh, who are you??" Still, new is good and I was quite excited to see what could be done with the knobbly celery root having never cooked with...

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Zucchini with Fish Sauce
I love the convenience of bagged, shaved, brussel sprouts, but this week I received whole ones from our CSA. So, to make things easier I just cut them in half and used a technique from David Chang's cookbook "Momofuku" (he of the Crack Pie fame). You start ...

Got Apricots?
Three generations of Passarellos! I thought buying 25 pounds of apricots every spring from Wolfe Ranch  was a lot. Then I realized I was in the minor leagues. Turns out our friends, the Passarellos, pick up 200 pounds! It's hard enough for me to process 25 ...

Roast Chicken with Fennel and Clementines
This was good. I mean REALLY good. Yes, it looks beautiful with the contrasting orange and green, but it TASTES even better. And to think, I almost didn't make this. I was on the verge of roasting a whole chicken when I remembered I'd bookmarked a recipe fr...

Shaved Fennel and Celery Salad
Eating this salad felt like all the freshness, hope and possibilities of a first Spring day. All the flavors played well together and for someone like me, who doesn't particularly like licorice or anise flavors, I didn't notice any aggressive overtones from...

Celery Root Soup
Wow! Who woulda thunk something so homely could produce something so delicious. Tonight's celery root soup was a big hit with every member of the family with enthusiastic requests to make it again. Poor celery root would not win any beauty contests. Even it...

Potato Kale Gratin
Got a beautiful bunch of Scotch kale from our CSA this week, paired it with some potatoes in my pantry, and voila a creamy, satisfying, yet light gratin. A mandoline will make slicing a cinch and if you're feeling particularly decadent, add some grated Parm...

Introduction
I have way too many hobbies and way too little time. Between working as a teacher's aide and raising 3 kids and a hubby and a cat, I try to get in some traveling, photography, cooking, gardening, sewing, knitting, piano plunking and learning Mandarin.
