Super Bowl Eats 2010: Hummus with Chipotle

Super Bowl Eats 2010: Hummus with Chipotle

Last year, I made some bacon-blue cheese dip, that, while well-received, was not exactly light on the calories. I wanted to do something year that was a bit different– but something I’d like to eat the rest of the week. I peeked around Epicurious and […]

L’shana tova!

L’shana tova!

To my Jewish friends, a very sweet new year! A traditional Rosh Hashanah dish is apple cake– I’m linking to a couple of recipes here both for my reference (man, do I love apple cake!) and in case you’re looking for a recipe. Smitten Kitchen’s […]

Recipe:  Baked Beans

Recipe: Baked Beans

One of the very first meals Terry made me involved baked beans– a stovetop recipe, that involved lots of onions, and it was delicious. Later, he made me this really wonderful oven variety, that involved pineapple and French’s onions. For a party at our friend’s […]

An Old Friend:  The Peanut-Banana Smoothie

An Old Friend: The Peanut-Banana Smoothie

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) Julie and I have been on a smoothie kick lately. Virtually every summer, I rediscover at least one favorite recipe.  It’s usually an old reliable standby that, for any number of reasons, dropped off the radar for a few years.  […]

Recipe: Boeuf Bourguignon, a la Anthony Bourdain

When I started this blog a year ago, one of the very first meals I made and semi-photographed was beef bourgignon.  Freshly arrived from France, I wanted to make some food similar to what we had there.  This hit the spot, and is great for […]

Christmas Breakfast: Brueggers’ bagels and salmon

Christmas Breakfast: Brueggers’ bagels and salmon

One of Terry’s favorite breakfasts in the winter is bagels with smoked salmon, capers, red onion and cream cheese. He’s big into Christmas decorations, so he always serves it on a cute Santa plate. Bagels are always Everything bagels from Brueggers (which, aside from Marx, […]

Merry Christmas, and a recipe.

Merry Christmas, and a recipe.

I hope that, if you celebrate, you have a very merry Christmas.  If you don’t celebrate, I hope you’re enjoying a well-deserved day off work. One of my favorite (newish) Christmas traditions is a drink Terry makes that is the “cheater’s” version of coquito, a […]

Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Our friend Drew had a “High End” party this past weekend. The concept: everyone brings a “high end” appetizer. No cocktail sausages in barbecue sauce, no Velveeta-based queso dip. We were to try to be homemade if we could. The turnout was great and the […]
