Perfectly Peelable Hard-Boiled Eggs

I’m on a hard-boiled egg kick. One of my favorite snacks is an hb-egg with a dollop of homemade mayo and a light sprinkling of truffle salt. Divine. I’ve also been perfecting my recipe for fuschia-colored pickled eggs. I keep telling Dave I’m becoming a homesteader now that we live in Vermont. He just rolls his eyes. But here’s the thing about hb-eggs. They can be a royal pain in... read more

Great Ingredients: No Recipe Required

As we get closer to our move — 11 days and counting! Our one-way airline tickets for Sunday, July 6 are purchased! — it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to deal with keeping us well fed. I love the process of making up new recipes or devouring other peoples’ cookbooks for inspiration, shopping for the perfect ingredients, and spending a few hours playing in the kitchen, but... read more

WF2 Recipe: Chicken Nanking

Confession #1: In the midst of purging our stuff and preparing for the movers and dealing with the disruption caused by a string of people tromping through our house (prospective buyers, inspector [and, sadly, not this kind],  foundation guy, plumber), I have zero desire or time to be creative in the kitchen. We are literally eating grilled chicken and raw vegetables at most meals for the near future. On... read more

Tropical Tacos With Jicama Slaw

I can hold two conflicting thoughts with equal conviction, and I have no problem with that whatsoever. For example: I generally like people who are educated and well-groomed, but I have a soft spot for Kid Rock (Sorry!). I like to dress in black, but can’t resist the colors pink and orange together. (like this) I like bananas — but not banana-flavored things — and the texture of pudding makes me... read more

Mediterranean Chicken Salad

I’m recovering from the “visit with all of my favorite paleo people mania” of PaleoFX this weekend by cooking and typing while still wearing my pajamas (camo flannel bottoms and a black t-shirt, in case you’re curious). I keep meaning to get dressed and maybe even workout, but it’s 4:00 p.m. and it still hasn’t happened and Jeopardy! is on in 30 minutes, so… I knew... read more

Slow Cooker Osso Buco Stew

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of slow cooker stews because I think they get too watery — but sometimes, like now, when we’re packing and traveling and generally FREAKING OUT IN A GOOD WAY about moving to Vermont, it’s nice to just toss some quality ingredients in the slow cooker and let it do its thing. I’m happy to report that a short simmer, uncovered in a... read more
