Seville: Tapas and Tio Pepe

July 1, 2014

It is always a good idea when in Spain to eat jamon Iberico de bellota, the ham that comes from the pata negra (black foot) pigs, who, by the way, are also black all over — which is in part why the meat is so dark, along with the acorns (bellota) that these free-ranging in […]

Potato Salad with Chimichurri

June 17, 2014

A wonderful mistake, this was. I’d been working up a menu for an upcoming Cowgirl Chef column for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on an after-the-fireworks Fourth of July party, and I had my other components all figured out, recipes written, tested and photographed — Red Snapper Ceviche with Tortilla Chips, Flap Steak Sandwiches with Onion […]

Texas Peaches

June 11, 2014

Besides the availability of tacos on practically every street corner in Dallas, one of the things I missed about Texas every summer while in Paris was the peaches. I like to cut them up and mix them up with Greek yogurt (or now, the Noosa plain one, which I’m totally addicted to) and muesli and […]

Tabbouleh

May 7, 2014

If you’re detecting a theme here, yes, I’m definitely into making Middle Eastern food right now. I ate so much of it in Paris last month and it’s been just the thing to throw together quickly as the days have been getting longer and warmer. I’ve never been a huge tabbouleh fan — until now. […]

Le Mini Tour: Brocantes, Bistros and Baguettes

April 28, 2014

Oh how I love the food markets in Paris on the weekends…and my favorite flea market at Porte de Vanves! Because you asked for it, I’m launching a mini version of my Brocantes, Bistros and Baguettes tours in Paris, which will replace the more intense three and four-day tours. The idea is to share my […]

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, […]
