Soup of the Week: Peanut with Fufu and That Time I was Wrong

Back in the early days when Rob and I first started dating, Tuesdays (I think? It may have been Wednesdays) became a regular date night as he had a radio show those evenings and my house was just two blocks away from the station and it just made sense for him to come over instead…

Croque Monsieur with Pineapple and Pepper Pico

Aussitôt que le beau temps commence, I am viciously craving a good croque monsieur. Perhaps because the dish never fails to remind me of lazy weekend afternoons spend on the patio at The Only, getting sun and beer drunk, tree spooge in my hair and eye lobes, to reconnect with folks I barely saw through…

Passover 2017 Recipe Round-Up

As we were finishing up our move (ha! like that work will ever be done), I was attempting to make arrangements to have one of our amazing helper elves over for a thank you supper and found myself saying “but perhaps after Passover” to which he responded “yes…please?” I’ve thought about this exchange quite a lot…

Ham & Cheese Tortilla de Patatas

I’m baaaaaack! Probably not up to posting regularly back, but back enough to share this recipe I developed tonight and cannot stop eating. I had wanted to make these bomb-ass-looking, eggy, jacket potatoes that my cousin, Tiffany, posted on her mama’s facebook wall, but found that my wee bag of russets carried narry a stuffing-worthy…
