Smoky Eggplant Dip

April 18, 2014

One of the things I love about Paris is I’m always discovering something new, and often in the most unlikely of places. Like this dip, a spontaneous grab and go purchase at the end of the day — at Monoprix! — along with some fresh pita that, with a bowl soup, was going to be […]

Best Baguette of Paris 2014

March 23, 2014

Sometimes my timing is the worst ever, but this is not one of those times. As if being back in Paris again couldn’t be better, the winner of  the annual best baguette competition was announced recently, and as luck would have it, the boulangerie is right next to my favorite weekend flea market, Porte de […]

Chopped Cobb Salad

March 17, 2014

I’ve made Cobb salads before and I’ve liked them just fine. But when I was at Vinaigrette in Santa Fe not long ago, I ordered a chopped version, and fell in love with the Cobb all over again. It had me at first crunch — each bite had a bit of crispy bacon, bleu cheese, […]

Broccoli Pasta with Kalamata Olives and Capers

March 10, 2014

Since I got back to Santa Fe, I’ve been craving — and eating– just about anything green I can find. I’m putting spinach and kiwis in my daily smoothies. I bought kale (again- after admitting that I’m tired of seeing it everywhere) and plan to make a salad with it later this week. Parsley, cilantro, […]

Wild Salmon Salad with Lime Zest Vinaigrette

February 24, 2014

If you are lucky enough to be stuck in an on-again, off-again wintry mix storm in Texas, as I was recently, the best place to be is in Denton at my friend Melanie’s house. Rose has a big backyard to roll around in, and a friend next door — Pontus, the Irish wolfhound — who […]

Broccoli Kale Lime Soup

February 17, 2014

Just as I was about to jump off the kale bandwagon — am I the only one suffering from kale fatigue?–I found myself in the Denton Kroger mindlessly tossing a bunch of the oh-so-trendy green curly stuff into my cart. It was a snow day, after all, and what’s a snow day for if not […]

Valentine’s Day: Chocolate Mousse

February 10, 2014

There is absolutely nothing to making mousse. Just chocolate and eggs, pinch of salt, that’s all. But it is one of those things, like baguettes and eating yogurt for dessert on weeknights that is very French. It is this sort of simplicity that makes chocolate mousse a perfect dessert, especially for Valentine’s Day, when many […]

Texas Tortilla Soup

February 7, 2014

Right, you’re probably thinking. Of course it’s Texas Tortilla Soup. What else would it be? But in this case, it’s called such because I made it while in Texas and yes, tortilla soup is most definitely a Texas thing, so there you are. One should definitely wear cowgirl boots while making this soup. If you want […]

Superbowl Pulled Pork Nachos

January 27, 2014

Every now and then, even when it’s not Superbowl Sunday, I get a craving for nachos that won’t go away. And since this classic Tex-Mex staple isn’t something you routinely find on the menus of most New Mexican restaurants (ridiculous!), I sometimes make this pulled pork version at home. But it’s a dangerous exercise. Once […]
