Earthy Savory Tart with Cornmeal Olive Oil Crust

June 30, 2011


It starts with the ingredient and builds from there as it usually does. Look in the fridge and take what’s there, what needs to be used, or better yet, what was most inspiring to you at the Farmer’s Market, and then create a dish, or a menu, from that. That’s how I usually go about […]

Cantaloupe Icy & Rejuvelac

June 22, 2011


So it seems I’ve been on this slushy ice tip lately. I think it’s the heat. With the first week of summer on the calendar here, the first week of summer in the air has come too. It has been hot! Like, sweating when you’re just sitting outside kind of hot, sleeping without covers hot, […]

Oat-Nut Scones with Apples & Currants.

May 19, 2011


I get in the mood for scones every once in awhile. It was an occasional breakfast treat, on various weekends when my mom was feeling ambitious, I guess. That buttery aroma would lead my nostrils from under the covers to the kitchen, where I would anxiously await their time in the oven to end. She’d […]
