When you live in the mountains there’s no need for air conditioning.  As I understand it, the same often lies true for other areas like Boston, Manhattan (if you’re poor – or by the rest of the country’s standards- upper middle class), and probably large parts of the PacNorthwest.  Everywhere I’ve ever lived, we had […]

The number one find at the Park City Farmers Market was garlic scapes.  I’ve been reading about them everywhere, it’s like they’ve been stalking me with their ubiquity in print, but total absence in my produce stands.  Since the climate is totally different here, I’m guessing garlic scapes would be available in Texas in late […]

Ruth’s Chris in Austin is one of my favorite dining experiences.  We tried the one in Plano and unfortunately it just wasn’t the same thing at all.  I tried to make our date night dinner a re-creation of things we would have eaten if we could have been in Austin.  Of course I don’t have […]

Tonight we had a rotisserie chicken, yep that kind from the grocery store, complemented by homemade mac and cheese and roasted zucchini.   The zucchini also came from the farmers market this week and was far superior to what I’ve been buying at the local grocery.  I was planning to make shrimp, but decided to be […]

This crispy chicken is made with panko breadcrumbs. I really don’t know how I made it before I knew about panko. It seems like I use panko very frequently and I’ve probably only known about it for about 5 years. Panko is made from crustless bread, coarsely ground, resulting in a light extra crispy texture. […]

Last night I had the pleasure of dinner by myself with a glass of wine and a book. This is *very* unusual and was most welcome. I’ve always enjoyed dining by myself. I like to go to restaurants by myself as well. Sometimes I really miss the days when I was working and I’d go […]

Last week Central Market had whole chickens on sale for an absurd price. Actually whole chickens are often very inexpensive and provide the base for an additional soup meal. You know how people always talk about how much money you can save cooking at home instead of eating out? If you ate like this every […]

I’d kind of forgotten about stir-fry for some reason, probably in large part due to my ginormous wok currently being stored in my playroom cabinets. This is a quick meal, and has a very unusual (for me) advantage of nearly no dishes for cleanup at the end of assembly. The sauce was quite flavorful, but […]
