  • Everyday Gnocchi

    Gnocchi is one of those recipes that mystifies me when I find out that someone thinks that it’s difficult to make, because not only is it really easy (and cheap) to produce, it’s also easy to produce a lot of it; and that’s exactly what we do. It’s common for me to whip out about […]

  • Smoky Baba Ghanouj

    The baba ghanouj recipe is a little nod to the only Middle Eastern restaurant from my Oregonian hometown of Coos Bay/North Bend, simply named Cafe Mediterranean. My family is reasonably certain that when they first opened that we generated a venerable chunk of their revenue.

But this blog is supposed to be a challenge, and that means transforming whatever is in season, whether I like it or not, into something unique […]

  • Strawbanero Sorbet

    Sorbet gets a bad rap. “Why would you want to eat that when you could have ice cream?” “That‘s gross, no thanks. I’ll take the good stuff.” “Aww, I’m sorry that’s all they have for you…” Rude. I’m going to make something clear here. If you think that sorbet is gross, it’s because all the […]
