One of my favorite snacks, particularly late at night. Easy, and different every time.

What else on St. Patrick's Day? Put with cabbage kim chee. The ginger in the kim chee went well with the coriander and mustard of the corned beef.


Chicken Marengo

13 March 2006

I was intending to come home and have the leftover chicken and mushroom sauce. Then it dawned on me that I also had some leftover Italian bread and tomato sauce. I'd had this dish in my head for awhile from Julia's Way to Cook. Bought some shrimp on the way home. Took like 10 minutes to put together.


Death row steak dinner

Chicken and pepper pasta

Chicken and pepper pasta

23 February 2006

Probably the longest standing and most-made dish in my repertoire: sauteed chicken, onion, and peppers with penne and olive oil. Garnished with parmesan, parsley, pine nuts, and a little reduced balsamic.


Sauteed chicken and risotto penne

22 February 2006

Made with a pan sauce. Penne can be done like risotto; it pickes up lots of flavor and comes out creamy without having to add cream.

Nothing in this picture comes through very well; not the sear on the beef (chuck, of course) or the browning of the potatoes. But it was good.


Composed salad

Composed salad

27 January 2006

Most everything here is pickled except the tomatoes and radishes. Salad? Crudite? Relish tray? Somewhere in between.


Turnip soup

Turnip soup

25 January 2006

With chorizo and apple. This soup was despised by everyone but me. Could have been the cider vinegar.


Beet chips

Beet chips

20 January 2006

These things rock. Like potato chips but earthier and sweeter. Put with a dill-lemon dip.


The almighty Zuni chicken

The almighty Zuni chicken

17 January 2006

From the Zuni Cafe cookbook. With the bread salad. Definitely lives up to its hype.

16 January 2006

I went through sort of a beet phase for awhile after buying a big bag from the produce market. This was good but needed something to pull it all together.

Made the risotto way with stock and marsala. Some spinach and sun-dried tomato too.


Pinto bean soup

Pinto bean soup

30 December 2005

In a tomato and ancho broth, with habanero and lime. Just the thing during all the rich food of Christmas.


Butternut squash soup

Garnished with reduced beet juice, candied pecans, and candy corn. First food picture I ever took.
