These are by far the best fish tacos I’ve ever had. With a desire to pay tribe to their provenance, and to create a quick reference for myself, I am sharing them here. I first came across this recipe on Food52.com, however it is originally by a woman named Emily, of FiveandSpice.com / @fiveandspice. Emily explains that the inspiration to make these tacos came from the cookbook Sunday Suppers at Lucques by Suzzane Goin. When I looked into it, […]
If meatballs with tomato sauce aren’t a fun weeknight dinner, I don’t know what is. Thanks to fresh herbs and garlic, these turkey meatballs would be delicious as a stand-along anchor of a well rounded meal, accompanied by greens and potatoes – actually a more authentically Italian take than the Americanized version featuring tomato sauce. I’ll take one of each! These are light, quick to make and great for a crowd.

On a crisp day this chili is just what the doctor ordered, in so many ways. It’s a great make ahead and pre-portioned servings freeze beautifully. This chili is meatless and can be a welcome respite from heavy cold-weather dishes, yet is still very satisfying.

So. California. Home to the vegetarian movement in the U.S. The Golden State whose sunshine and mild climate makes possible remarkable produce all year long. Hotbed of almost countless sustainable food startups and home to internationally influential chefs. And place where, to date, my out of home dining experiences have for the most part led to absolutely delicious foods that are as fresh a treat as one could hope for. Except for, you won’t believe it, shockingly underwhelming veggie burgers. […]
This delicious dish was unusual for us only in that we do not by design have to avoid gluten. However with what feels like a growing number of friends who must omit the grain-based protein, it seems to make sense to get a handle on a few staples. I am proud to say that our first gluten-intolerant dinner guest pronounced this dish delicious! This lasagna can be made with traditional noodles as well. Which leads me from various dietary needs […]
I received a copy of the new magazine Organic Life a few weeks ago and while flipping through came across this intriguing recipe. Intriguing to me that is, and only because I’m not typically inclined to use bok choy, let alone venture out of my comfort zone to make our proteins ‘crusted’. After reading the steps once, twice and a third time for trap doors, it was clear that this dinner is really easy and entirely week-night friendly. Besides being […]
This morning, the Monday Make-Ahead resolution came in particularly handy as Paul had to be out the door at 5:30 am to catch a flight. Which meant that not only did this week’s make-ahead have to be especially fast, it had to be one in which the finishing touches were exaggeratedly obvious as I was not stringing together coherent sentences while prepping said breakfast. Two things I love about this to-go meal. One, while the night before prep takes a […]

Several winters ago, we decided to branch out cooking-wise with the goal of both experiencing new flavors as well as learning certain anchors and techniques partial to a specific cuisine. The deal was that anytime we’d be making more than a five-minute serving of sustenance, we would cook the chosen cuisine. Our aim was to spend a month on one cuisine and then move onto another. To be honest I forget why, but back then first in the rotation was […]
Oh man is this a good combo! It originated about a week ago, when I was making guacamole on our aforementioned family ski trip. As I worked through the early prep – chopping garlic and onion, Paul handed me a Fresno chili to include. Hmm, delicious, but perhaps a little to much heat for a range of tastes… Adding the pepper was a good idea though, flavorful and pretty, and the antidote to its heat awaited in a Champagne Mango […]
