[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 […]
[Thanks, everyone, for your patience while my blog was undergoing some changes. 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 […]
[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 […]
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 […]
[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 […]

It’s been a whirlwind weekend, first, with a birthday dinner (THANKS […]
*Or, Mastering the Legacy of Mush and Goo

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 […]
Gnocchi your socks off.
Gnocchi three times.
“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.
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 […]
