• Baba Ganoush

    I’ve always loved eggplant, but lately I’ve been thinking about it all the time. It started when I was in Sicily a few months ago. Every single day, there was something on my plate starring eggplant. Caponata. Pasta alla Norma. Eggplant picatta.

  • Roasted Carrot + Potato Fritters with Basil

    There were more leftovers in my fridge than I’d had in ages. It was one of those weeks where I had to cram in all of my cooking for an upcoming Cowgirl Chef column for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in two days.

  • My Big Fat Santa Fe Salad

    The first time I saw heaps of fried potatoes on top of a salad – at Le Relais Gascogne in Montmartre – I thought I was dreaming. I was so excited about this (along with the super-cheap carafes of Gamay I’d order with my friend Suzanne), I came up with a recipe inspired by these wine-and-salad evenings and wrote about it in my book.

  • Skillet-Roasted Yellow Squash Hash

    Finding yellow squash in Paris is possible, but it’s not plentiful. Nothing wrong with the prolific green courgette, but I do love sweet, summery yellow squash. Reminds me of Texas, every single time I taste it.
