Spring may have arrived with snow, but soon enough we’ll be frolicking through the meadows. Those meadows always make me think of lamb, which is usually my choice for Easter dinner (and, of course, it’s popular for Passover, too). But in a recent article in the New York Times, Julia Moskin bemoaned America’s reluctance to embrace lamb. It … Continue reading

Best Bites – tacos, beef ribs, rice pudding and the demise of Kimchi Fried Rice
As usual, I’ve been chronicling my favorite dishes of the last month, aside from the special meals I’ve already posted about. It’s hard to resist when the camera is right on the table at home, or my cell phone handy elsewhere. Although, truth be told, these days I use my cellphone, a Samsung Galaxy S4, … Continue reading

I made the Brussels Sprouts slaw here with shredded sprouts from Trader Joes (so convenient!), throwing in some carrot I needed to use up.

I made my favorite red lentil soup – I can bring you a cup in a couple of minutes. Made with fresh ingredients, olive oil and fresh lemon. Just say yes. Okay?” SURE! I emailed … Continue reading
Congratulations to Pure Indian Foods, makers of organic ghee, which you will find at local farmers markets, for their July 21 write-up in the New York Times. There’s always something interesting in Florence Fabricant’s Food Stuff column, all the more so when it features a local company. I first found Pure Indian Foods at one … Continue reading
Congrats, Congrats, and Wow

A Smarter Choice
Well, glory be, the Smart Choices program I recently posted about is bowing to pressure and more or less suspending operations. In an article this morning in the New York Times, we learn that some of the food manufacturers who were participating are pulling out amid public and governmental pressure. The program allowed certain products … Continue reading
