Well, I've been off in colder climes, doing various things. So here's a cheaterly sort of post - I'm going to just put up a list of some of the recipes I've posted lately over at The Kitchen, just...

When I began this blog I swore that I wouldn't ever start a post by saying something like, wow! It's been a LONG TIME since I blogged here! Have you MISSED me? I bet you have. GEE. Here's a...

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to dream up new ways to use the obligatory foods of the holiday season. There's something gratifying and even transgressive in departing from the traditional recipes and...

A rather complicated dessert for Sugar High Friday 24 - little banana cake squares, layered with spiced caramel pastry cream and glazed with chocolate and burnt caramel. Worth the work!
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.
2 October 2006
Wonderful make ahead dinner with deliciously seared bits of lamb and cumin - Bittman scores an A+ with this one.
23 September 2006
A creamy surprise inside a lovely summer nectarine: coconut panna cotta with a hint of rum and nutmeg.
14 September 2006
A parcel goes out with monster cookies and a lot more.
29 August 2006
My ultimate banana bread.
25 August 2006
In which I abandon, finally, sorbets and other frozen treats and make something different for Sugar High Friday: a sweet, rich fig jam with toasted sesame seeds. I feel so domestic...
10 August 2006
Chunky, delicious zucchini cupcakes with a rich swirl of citrus and cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Plus they're kinda cute.
4 August 2006
Simple, delicious meatballs with a tangy lemon and wine sauce, flavored by sage from my doorstep. Doesn't get much better than that.
2 August 2006
An easy-peasy tart with leftover cookie dough and late summer strawberries.
28 July 2006
Beat the heat with a deliciously creamy ricotta ice cream - light and rich at the same time, with notes of lemon and dark rum. Goes great with watermelon.
27 July 2006
Hot, hot pink. Creamy goat cheese and soft ricotta. Butter and tiny crunchy poppy seeds.
15 July 2006
Loot from Scharffen Berger inspires a raspberry studded ricotta cupcake with shards of roasted cacao nibs. Chocolicious.
30 June 2006
Sometimes I develop a taste for something I've never actually tasted, something that lives only in my imagination. Sometimes my attempts to create this imagined taste go well; sometimes my taste proves to be entirely imaginary, unruled by the...
27 June 2006
I muse a bit about weblogging and show off bakingsheet's recipe for coconut bread, a moist, delicious quick bread infused with all the goodness that is fresh ground cinnamon.
13 June 2006
Little wheels of pasta, ridged and delicate, tumbled with homemade pesto and red peppers roasted and simmered in balsamic vinegar. Good for a side or a main - good warm or cold - good at any time, really.
6 June 2006
Spinach, onions, garlic, the dregs of a bottle of wine. Spinach soup, a flexible healthy dinner for one.
4 June 2006
A fruity, delicious little muffin with a yellow, creamy center and a finish like key lime pie, inspired by Mahanandi's strawberry muffins and the urge to bake extravagant comfort food after a distracting week.
1 June 2006
Another dinner for one with bacon, endive, and the curly pasta in all the different colors. The green is my favorite.
26 May 2006
Another sorbet for another Sugar High Friday. This one is like a spiked lemonade - cool and icy, yet warm with ginger and whiskey. A light, feathery treat for a summer afternoon.
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.
14 May 2006
Little tart citrus bites: grapefruit, lemon, and lime. And a new silicone tart pan. Cuteness all round.
10 May 2006
A sugar cookie recipe that makes an enormous amount of darling little cookies. 3 cups of butter!
8 May 2006
Fresh borlotti beans, fresh sage, fresh thyme, fresh garlic - fresh fresh fresh. It must be spring or something.
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.
23 April 2006
In which St. George's Day is celebrated with the diminutive, flaky piece of pastry awesomeness that is the Eccles cake. And I make puff pastry from scratch, shocking myself in the process.
21 April 2006
An icy dessert for early hot summers, spiked with Kirsch and lemon verbena. Cool, soothing, and dramatically red.
17 April 2006
In which I make sausage for Easter, and I learn to like it. Sausage, that is. I already like Easter a lot.
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.
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.
6 April 2006
A very un-Lent-like spring meal, with the most spectacular Spanish dish. I rustle up some desserts and tapas to accompany, including the very best thing you can do with a four-dollar bottle of red wine.
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.
22 March 2006
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.
8 March 2006
Yes, redundancy of words bothers me. Even if they are in other languages.
8 March 2006
Cupcakes! What more do you need to know?
7 March 2006

Brown your meat. Brown it boldly...
