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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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