I prepared all this food. The written content and photographs are mine unless otherwise specified. I try out a lot of recipes from other sources, but always give credit where it is due. Of course, sometimes pages disappear, and the links no longer work. If that happens, hopefully I have included enough information for you to find the original source.
This blog is meant to be a convivial space, a place where I can share my thoughts, recipes, and story with you. If you like what you see and want to share it with others, remember to attribute it properly. As a courtesy, please do ask for permission if you want to use my content. It will almost always be granted unless you are using it for commercial purposes.
Also, sometimes I tell you about things that I like. I haven't been paid to do this — but wouldn't that be nice? Picture it: a lifetime's supply of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt . . .

When I was an undergraduate, I had friends who could subsist on Cheerios and skim milk for the whole semester. I could never do that. First of all, I didn’t want to contract scurvy, beriberi or any other kind of … Continue reading
A while ago, I was gifted a giant tub of bacon ends from a member of a different CSA. They languished in the back of my freezer until a deep spring clean last week. Bacon ends are a terrific thing … Continue reading
I’m not really the kind of person to post Irish dishes simply because it’s Saint Patrick’s Day. In all honesty, this meal came about from searching for something to accompany the nice Irish bacon that I get from my CSA. … Continue reading
For last month’s Daring Kitchen Cooks’ Challenge, Lis and Audax Artifex (whose parents must be congratulated for giving him the best name on the planet) gave us a very technical challenge and dared us to make patties. This month, Carol from … Continue reading
