Meal plan: week of October 8, 2018

Well friends, I don’t have a lot of pithy thoughts to accompany this week’s meal plan. I had the weekend to myself, which was a treat, but I spent most of it rage-writing postcards to potential voters in Georgia in the hope that I could […]

Meal plan: week of October 1, 2018

Holy moly did you see what just happened? I typed October into the title bar because somehow by the time I start cooking this week we will well and truly be in October. How on earth. I tell you what, being a mostly vegetarian cook […]

Meal plan: week of September 24, 2018

Autumn went and snuck right in last week. The street outside our little apartment is lined with chestnut trees, and they are conking down everywhere, littering the sidewalk with delightful brown chestnuts. My kids like nothing more than gathering the shiny, chocolatey nuts, and I […]

Ok, so now it’s somehow properly summer. We had a little false alarm a few weeks back, but now it’s really here. We hit up the Fremont Solstice Parade this Saturday, which is quite a way to ring in the summer if you have never […]

Meal plan: week of June 11

We had a few friends over last week for dinner, which was very fun indeed, and it happened to be on Wednesday, a.k.a. the day I don’t actually have to cook dinner, so I was inspired to make dessert instead. Even though it feels like […]

Peppy – and peppery – quick lunch (or dinner): Cabbage and eggs

This is one of those recipes that is so much more than the sum of its parts. When my dear friend Shireen told me about this standby from her kitchen, I admit to being deeply suspicious. Cabbage? Green cabbage? Sautéed? With eggs? It just didn’t sound like something […]
