A Midsummer Night Dinner Party

As social distancing and limited exposure to people not in your nuclear circle (like people with whom you share a home) continue, I am thinking about dinner parties and other fun food gatherings, like cooking classes.

Our New Normal...For Now

I have worked from home for a long time. Unless traveling, hosting groups; teaching classes and seminars or lecturing, I generally work from my home office (aka, my kitchen), writing and creating recipes.

Time for a Picnic

As the first day of summer approaches (yippppeeeeeeeee…) we begin to think…picnic! There’s nothing more fun and relaxing, more leisurely and chill than a blanket on the grass with friends and loved ones than a picnic. 


Time to Sweeten Things Up...

As far as I’m concerned, pineapple is the aristocracy of fruit.  But don’t let its royal appearance fool you.  Underneath its regal crown lies sweetly sensual fruit that can take your breath away. 


The fruit of an herbaceous plant believed to have its origins in Brazil, the pineapple belongs to the Bromeliaceae family.  Interestingly, the pineapple is one of the few plants in this family that doesn’t grow on trees…and is the only plant in this family that bears edible fruit.
