My apologies for my absence over the past week. As a few readers reported to me, there were some issues with accessing this site and, on closer inspection, maintenance was required. Problem solved, I hope, at least for a while. Never fear, lovely readers, I was still eating. And cooking. A little, at least, since I was also… Read More

Hey, readers… have you noticed, there’s not much here on family dinners lately? Well, Annie is back to college after spring break. And Louisa has been practically living in the the theatre for the past month, rehearsing her little tootsies off dancing, singing, and acting for the high school’s production of “Hairspray”. Therefore, you can’t… Read More
I hope Louisa will excuse me for talking in #hashtags, I’ve been scolded for this before. However, maybe she’ll make an exception because I’d say this week I did something that only a #foodie would ever do.
I present to you our poodle cat.
I have a playbook of quirky superstitions that includes making a wish when I go someplace new. I have no idea where this superstition originated, but since I take my good luck opportunities every time they present, I follow this one along with others such as saying “rabbit, rabbit” the first day of each month.… Read More

She doesn’t like pork, although I’m guessing that has something to do with the fact that I often cook pork with fennel which is on… Read More
The more sensitive among you may have realized something I’m about to share with the rest. I’ve given up the battle. The “clean your plate or else” battle. The “eat it because it’s good for you” battle. The “you’ll learn to love it” battle. The “I love it, why don’t you?” battle. Perhaps I’ve given… Read More
Suddenly, it’s light, it’s bright and spring is really almost here. Oh-my-gosh! Today it feels so good to be outside. Even the sleep deprivation from the stupid change of clocks over the weekend can almost be forgotten when the world is so sunny and warm. And my appetite is ready for a real food cleanse,… Read More
Since I’m confident that today is winter’s final stand, I decided to appreciate the beauty of the gently falling flakes, the white puffs covering the branches, and the junkos feasting at our well-stocked feeders, thanks to Joe. If they knew what was good for them, those birds would send Joe a sincere thank you card… Read More
