Lombardy-style pizza with sausage, rosemary, and an egg on top.

As much as I understand Michael’s desire to minimize the amount of heat that we pump into our apartment during the summer, I still can’t help myself from longing for homemade pizza even when it’s hot AF outside. Part of it is a desire to enjoy the bounty of summer on a pizza crust, and…

Wild mushrooms with an egg yolk from French Country Cooking.

[Editor’s note: to echo a phrase from very sage person Caitlin at Fit & Feminist, it’s very weird blogging about food right now, but self-care is important in order to not lose one’s mind. If you’re as horrified by the actions taken by the current administration this past weekend as I am, please consider donating…

Puglian stuffed chicken, or what might be my new favorite fall chicken.

While only the most intense heat and extreme humidity will keep us from roasting a chicken, I have to admit that now that the temperatures are getting cooler again and it’s becoming seasonally appropriate to roast a bird for Sunday supper and it’s actually quite nice and very comforting to do so.

It’s not that I have anything against breakfast…

07.18.10: dinner (recipe rehash–pasta alla carbornara)

You should give it a try because it truly is easy to make and is a complete meal in of itself thanks to the eggs and the garnishes of pancetta,…

10.15.08: lunch.

In an effort to break me from the PB&J habit, I started experimenting with eggs back in the fall.  This one is among my favorites, and a perfect brunch sandwich: Soft-Boiled Egg & Cheese Sandwich Ingredients: 1 egg 2 Tbsp goat cheese, plain or herbed (preferably one that’s easy to spread, like Charvie) 2 slices…

01.24.09: dinner party.

Entertaining friends by plying them with wine and homemade food is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday night, so when our friends Kallipher and TF came in from Boston to spend a weekend with us a few weeks ago, we were fairly sure that making food would probably come into play thanks…
