A Boston Dinner?

A Boston Dinner?

A Boston Dinner? Perhaps my favorite comfort food meal is this odd combination of breakfast links, baked beans, and applesauce. Is this a Boston thing? At my college outside of Boston (then Dean Jr. College, now Dean College), it was the only thing I liked in their cafeteria. Compared to my parents’ food and Princeton … Continue reading

December’s Best Bites

December’s Best Bites

Ah, December, the most celebratory and calorie-laden month of the year! Here’s mine, culinarily speaking, from quiche to sausage to turkey (twice!) to rib roast, and a reckless splurge on the complete (to date) series of Short Stack Editions.
