We lost a lot of good men out there today… at least they pummeled to their fateful end, inhaling the delicate perfection that is charcoal.
Fresh. Vegan. Healthy. Low Carb. I know these aren’t usually words you see in my posts, but I’m trying friends. I’m trying.
As with many a subtle seductress, I disregarded the need for proper precautions, those that might have prevented the affects of a potential sting, and I went for it. They lured me in – sitting in the comfort of their fuzzy green box, with their shiny green exterior and their plump, local, freshness. I took the bait.
Grill them, I thought. Stuff them to the brim with goat cheese and pineapples, I thought. Drizzle lime juice over them, I thought.
So I chopped. I de-seeded. I de-ribbed. And then I cried.
Hoping this post finds you enjoying your holiday weekend – you know, flags flying, beer flowing, endless tables of delicious eats!
If your celebrating continues into the weekend, have I got a dish for you. This is one of those dishes that has been around for ages, the origin is unknown, everyone has a different take on it, but, it, without a doubt, belongs on every picnic table.
It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! My absolute favorite time of year for cooking. BBQs, picnics, cook-outs, grilling, fresh produce everywhere, sun, fun, beer, entertaining, ahhhh – what could be better?
Bright, complex, well-rounded… No, this isn’t about you right now… I’m talking about this soup!
A great, light, starter, or perfect for those not-so-hungry lunches or dinners, this deeply flavorful soup is just delightful. Full of nutrients and spices, it screams healthy, minus my friend, sour cream, of course.
It happened you guys. Call it a gust of wind in my sails. A wind beneath my wings. A fire under my butt. The dawning of a new day.
Maybe it’s the killer Redskins game I went to on Monday. The hustle, bustle, and merriment of the holiday season. Or just more sleep. Whatever it is, like my boy Constanza says, “I’m back, baby!”
I’m super-mega pumped to bring you some great holiday ideas and recipes in the coming month, so let’s get started!
The Fantasy line-up is set. The jersey perfectly rumpled. The beer cold. The chips and dip aplenty. Dish with clear line of sight of the southern sky – for maximum Sunday ticket reception.
It’s here dear friends. The day of days… NFL FOOTBALL!!!
We’ve all got them, those foods that we wake up craving, those foods we daydream about, those foods that make us salivate at the thought of them. Most people’s lists include chocolate, chips, pasta, cheese, bread and the like. My recent food lusting has taken a strange twist. I. Crave. Tofu! All day, everyday, I want it. Don’t know where it came from, don’t know what it will take to tame the hungry tofu beast, but she’s there.
“No time! No time! There’s never enough time!” I don’t enter into caffeine pill induced freak outs, but I do wish for more time when I look at the stacks of food magazines and books that clutter my floor. My list of things to make and bake grows longer by the day, and there’s never enough time to test and post. Someone find me a longer day, please.
Case in point, this showed up in the December 2010 issue of Bon Appetit, and I’ve been dying to make it ever since. A year and a half later, here she is – wow, look at that turn around time.
