ShareNext up on our farewell to summer tour: the peach.  In warmer months I usually just slice and eat.  They are, in truth, my favorite fruit.  I totally get why the apple is so universally loved, but had I been Eve, I’d have told the snake to beat it, and picked a peach instead.  Just […]

ShareHave you ever had wild blueberries?  Teeny, tiny and irresistibly sweet, they’re the low-bush variety native to more northern climes, like Massachusetts,  Maine and Canada.  They’re a purpley-blue color with what looks like a layer of frost coating their skin (a sure sign of ultimate freshness).  We used to ride our bikes up to the […]

ShareA couple weekends ago, the hubster and I had a house full of guests up in Rockport, Mass (my favorite place on Earth, in case you were wondering).  I’m a total cruise director, and a mild control freak when it comes to making sure my guests eat well, swim often,  and get in as many […]

Extremely red faced (what can I say, I come from hearty Irish and German peasants) . Probably smelling a little, […]

ShareActually, that is an utter falsehood. I just lied through my teeth. Happy strawberries are categorically not all alike, I am just in a literary mood this morning. The best kind of strawberries, in-season strawberries, happy strawberries…are blissfully unalike. They’re fragrant, they’re local, and they’re bright red all the way through. The juice drips down […]

ShareJune has arrived in all it’s glory here in the Big Apple. The best kind of day for a trip to the Greenmarket. I’ve been craving quiche lately, but it’s bathing suit season, and frankly, my stomach is often at odds with the rest of my body when it comes to the subject of fuel. […]

ShareThis was my healthy contribution to Easter brunch. Except they were so good, I ate them the day before. Whoops. They are super moist and have a nice orange flavor and spice note. Grate the carrot on the fine side of a box grater. The recipe is for 24 mini muffins, but of course you […]
