On Seasonality & Asparagus (With an Egg)

15 October 2006

An easy, delicious meal for one: some roasted asparagus with Parmesan, the best fried egg known to man, and some tomato slices.

Recipe Review: The Minimalist's Mongolian Lamb

2 October 2006

Wonderful make ahead dinner with deliciously seared bits of lamb and cumin - Bittman scores an A+ with this one.

Sugar High Friday: Nectarine-Coconut Surprise

23 September 2006

A creamy surprise inside a lovely summer nectarine: coconut panna cotta with a hint of rum and nutmeg.

Deceptively healthy & economic: Spinach Soup

6 June 2006

Spinach, onions, garlic, the dregs of a bottle of wine. Spinach soup, a flexible healthy dinner for one.

Rotini with Endive, Bacon and Thyme

1 June 2006

Another dinner for one with bacon, endive, and the curly pasta in all the different colors. The green is my favorite.

The Art of Leftovers: Linguine, Bacon & Basil

23 May 2006

Not too much, not too little: the art of leftovers. This recipe plays double-duty: it uses up leftover stuff in the fridge, and works great as leftovers the next day at the office.

Cranberry Beans with Red Onion and Sage

8 May 2006

Fresh borlotti beans, fresh sage, fresh thyme, fresh garlic - fresh fresh fresh. It must be spring or something.

Old Bread & New Fish: Salmon Cakes with Dill Breadcrumbs

30 April 2006

I try so hard to keep things from going bad in my fridge, but they still do, unfortunately. So I turn to bread to absolve myself, and use an old loaf for a buttery breadcrumb coating on these salmon cakes. They are delicious, and make me feel better. Which was the point, of course.

The Spice is Right: Cumin & chickpeas for one

14 April 2006

Cumin, a very old spice. They found it in the pyramids, y'know. Weird to think that I like eating something that a pharoah ate. Kind of creepy. But it's awfully good with chickpeas.

Green, green: Leeks and fettucine

10 April 2006

Leeks put in yet another appearance - their second in the life of this young weblog. I do love leeks, especially when they're homegrown and bought at the oh-so-trendy community market.

Sweet Indian finish: Mango lassi panna cotta

31 March 2006

Hopefully this India/US trade deal will go through and we'll get us some really good mangos. When we do, make this soft, tangy, wobbly panna cotta. It's actually good for you.

IMBB 24: Flash in the pan fish

22 March 2006

Colorful, crunchy salad. A toothsome walnut cake. Crispy fish with salty capers. In 30 minutes or less.

Cooking for one: An ode to beets, with a whiff of goat cheese

21 March 2006

Beets and goat cheese: a classic combination. Watch out - your fingers and counters and sink and dishes, they will all be pink.

Sloppy delicious dumplings for one

8 March 2006

What to eat when you come home tired. The easiest boiled dumplings you have ever seen. Leeks put in an appearance.

12 December 2004

Hot and spicy thai noodles - still trying to get the recipe right, though.
