Goat Cheese and Zucchini Tartlets

By on September 17, 2017

These were fun and good, inspired by Ina Garten – click here for her recipe.  I did them in mini-tart pans rather than as one big tart.  Once you get the pastry dough into the tart pans, pop them back in the fridge for a while before loading up with…

Young Lady’s Blueberry Muffins

By on July 1, 2017

Then one day she showed up.  And we loved her a lot.  But she didn’t do much at the time.  Now, some 12 years later, she has single handedly manufactured the best d*mn blueberry muffins I have ever had in my entire life.

Blueberry Johnnycakes with Fresh Figs and BACON

By on September 11, 2016

Make this happen to your Sunday morning.  Basic blueberry pancake recipe, but substitute in stone-ground cornmeal for about 1/3d of the flour. A nice little bite, a sweet little crunch…  Oh and we had figs.

More Brunch – Eggs with Avocado Toasts

Avocado love transcends chips and guac, people.

Sunny ups, cracked pepper and a bit of fresh thyme.  Crispy bacon, baby. Country bread, slathered with some salty European butter.  Topped with a little something-something to make your day –  ripe avocado, smashed with some lemon juice, kosher salt and cayenne pepper….

The Bomb Brunch Bowl

By on March 14, 2016

Boom!

A little riff from BA’s great brunch idea (click here).  One of those recipes you read and need to make immediately.  Cheesy grits with wilted greens, oozy soft poached eggs and crispy bacon lardons.  A few pickled jalapeños for some heat and color.  Crusty country bread, toasted and smeared…

Blistered Shishitos, Chilled Oysters and the Perfect Cocktail Sauce

By on January 3, 2016

Here’s an appy course to rock your New Year.  Pour a nice glass of cold Sancerre.  Fire up some blistered shishitos, tossed with some S&P and a bit of garlic powder.  Shuck a fat icy plate of chilled oysters — maybe some Bluepoints and Montauk Pearls.   And however gauche, I’ll still…

Olive oil, raw egg yolk a bit of Dijon.  Worcestershire and lemon juice. Garlic smashed to a paste, grated parm, cracked pepper.   Whisk it up with…
