I pick up a cooking class at ICE now and again. One of the chefs mentioned that classes like “The Tuscan Steakhouse” immediately sell out. It’s the word “Tuscan” — strikes a chord with those packed into our 13×2 island. Some vineyards and rolling hills for our subways and…
Yes, I know everybody and really everybody has done this recipe. It’s like the Kardashians of appetizers. But this is a rare instance where overexposure is warranted.

Halve a white onion, chop….
What’s better than Marcona almonds. They come salted and lightly fried in sunflower oil. Now I should just leave that alone. Well, maybe we’ll trick out half of them…
Marcona almonds – I get these from Whole Foods. Fresh Direct doesn’t carry them yet.
Oven to 425º
Set aside half the…
Good reaction to last week’s post, bacon fat moves the collective soul. So let’s reprise. How about an appie this time … But something on the DL, a little odd, a tad askew. Is it an appie? Or a dessert? Sweet? Savory? Let’s mix it up. Let’s…
It’s getting summertime. Let’s head out on the patio. Watch the city roll by with a nice chilly cocktail, maybe a Greyhound. And a little something something to nosh on. Like a plate of well-seasoned creamy deviled eggs. Hey now. Spicy. Smokey. That’s what I’m talking about.
