So here’s two giant bunches of kale in a pan. Over thinly sliced garlic bathed in a nice pour of warmed olive oil. And then there’s a disappearing act…
What?? No way, that pan’s like way over-full.
Wait a minute, what’s happening?
Where did it all go?
Oh, into an awesome chicken platter.
Nice Easter Bunny likes carrot soup. Edgy Easter Bunny adds a burn of fresh ginger. Garnishes with crispy fried carrot shaves. And serves with savory gorgonzola fig shortbreads. We prefer us some Edgy Bunny.
1 bag carrots, peeled and chopped
1 medium chopped yellow onion
2 T butter
3 T peeled chopped…
Hey there, Spring. This one’s for you.
Asparagus, ends trimmed off and peeled a few inches up from the bottom
2 egg yolks, stirred with 2 T water
Juice from 1 lemon, zest from half
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and clarified (skim off the floatie stuff)
Kosher salt and cayenne pepper
Enough with winter already, I mean really. Does it need to be so cold for so long, I’m done with it. Let’s take a deep breath and warm things up with a slow and low French onion soup. The key is cooking down the onions long enough before…
Caught up with an old friend this week who’s recovering from Biglaw down in D.C. He passed along this little riff — and I love me some roasted veggies:
Broccoli, cut into florets
Garlic powder, S&P
Fresh lemon juice
Oven to 425º. Toss florets in a drizzle of…
I didn’t intend to make kale soup. Rather, it was to be lightly wilted with butter, shallots and a bit of garlic. But my trimming of the stems was a bit lazy, and they just weren’t cooking through. So I dropped it all into the blender, added chicken stock…
By request, here’s a garnish riff. This one can be quite dangerous. If you live on the edge and venture to bang it out, you may well incinerate your kitchen to the very ground. A blazing grease inferno indeed.
In this little ditty we are getting our spinach…
Fish tacos taste like summer. We do them in soft corn tortillas. Chunks of ripe avocado tossed with cilantro, lime and S&P. A drizzle of sour cream mixed with plain yogurt or mayo, lime zest and chipotle tabasco. Some white fish — tilapia, maybe cod. Thin sliced, lightly…
Here we go again with the roasted veggies — this time it’s sugar snap peas. Who doesn’t love sugar snaps. Tell me you don’t, I dare you-
Sugar snap peas
Kosher salt, cracked pepper
Oven to 425º. Toss the snaps with a touch of oil. Season, then onto the…
Busy few weeks here, blog camp, the 40/40 thing, weekend with family in The ATL, action at the office. All great stuff, but looking forward to a weekend at home and a nice big fat steak with some mushrooms. Mushrooms love steaks as kites love the wind. And it’s…
