How I Spent My Florida Vacation, 2011 Edition–and “Kitchen Classics” Launch!

[Warning: Extra, extra, extra-long post. Feel free to portion it out in smaller doses. . . or simply take your time and revel in the sunshine.]

[Nope, no alligators in this Florida body of water. (And no, that’s not the HH at the pool!)]

Um, so, yes, I have […]

Getting to the Meat of the Matter: Meaty Spinach Pesto Lasagna

They’re all done now–and I’m happy to offer you all a “print recipe” button so you don’t have to copy and paste any more! There are also more user-friendly subscribe buttons and comment threads. What do you think of them? And […]

Review and Recipes: Becoming Raw

[Zucchini Pasta Bolognese–hearty and delicious]

Dealing with all the exigencies of the anti candida diet (ACD) can really be a challenge. After more than a year without sugars (sniff, boo hoo), most fruits (miss ya, mangoes!), gluten (you were overrated anyway), yeasts (nooch! nooch!), fungi (bye, bye, portobello […]

New Age Vegan Pasta Carbonara

The past couple of weeks have been beyond hectic here at the DDD household, what with a surprise party (at my place) for my office mate; a wedding shower (no, not mine–okay, breathe normally now); two new courses to prepare for my return to teaching next week (what?? Seriously, is my […]

PS, I Love You: V-Day Dinner 2009

[Dig that romantic lighting in this photo!]

I have a new love, and it’s not the HH.

(“What? Mum, you’re not getting a divorce, are you? Because who’s going to walk us in the morning if Dad is gone??“). Now, before I go and scare The Girls, I should […]

Date Pasta

[No, not “date” as in “dried fruit with pit and high sugar content.” I mean “date” as in the classic Saturday night event, “evening out with someone you like and with whom you might like to be, um, romantic.” ]

It’s been a whirlwind weekend, first, with a birthday dinner (THANKS […]

Kale and Potato Lasagna*

*Or, Mastering the Legacy of Mush and Goo

When I was a kid, my mother was a fairly conventional 1960s housewife (well, except for the Valium) whose cooking style, too, adhered to convention; she’d cook pretty much the same seven dinners every week, according to the day: […]

Spicy Red Pepper Pasta

Sometimes it’s best not to complicate matters.

Even though I am well aware of this principle, I’ve never been the kind of gal who naturally embraces “simple”: no scoop of vanilla ice cream for me when double-fudge-cookie-cream-caramel-swirl exists in the world; no blue wooly socks if I can wear my favorite […]

Spiced Carrot Gnocchi in Creamy Sauce

Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

Gnocchi.

Gnocchi Who?

Gnocchi your socks off.

What?

Gnocchi three times.

Excuse me?

“Gnocchi Three Times on the Ceiling if You Wa-ant Me. . . Twice on the Pipes. . .”

Okay, I think that’s quite enough.

You shouldn’t gnocchi a guy when he’s down.

I […]

Soba Noodles with Ginger, Chard and Walnuts

While taking some leisure time to browse through a few food blogs recently (read: two hours at my desk when I should have been working), I happened upon the blog event They Go Really Well Together, hosted by blog.khymos.org (“dedicated to molecular gastronomy”). The gist of the event is that two or more seemingly mis-matched […]
