Here’s a little something-something to smear over a bite of your juicy grilled lamb chop…

Lazy Dude Egg Salad

By on August 8, 2015

Do as little as possible here.  Dial it back.  Start slow, ease off.  

 

Eggs just barely hard cooked, shelled and chopped.  A dollop of mayo – not too much!  Cracked pepper.  Celery salt.  Chopped celery and red onion.  Done.

Generously spooned on a sliced roll, maybe some Cholula heat.  A cold…

Zucchini – 1988

By on May 10, 2015

Zucchini was big part of childhood in that the backyard garden shot them out of the ground directly at you.  Hundreds of them.  So there were zucchini breads, zucchini salads, zucchini in pasta….  Apparently a popular garden item in the burbs’, as everywhere you turned in Framingham, Mass circa 1988, someone…

Sweet-Hot Grilled Chicken Satay

Just so so good.  Like wow.    

Slice boneless skinless chicken thighs into strips – probably get 3 or 4 strips from each.  Toss in canola oil, sea salt, cracked pepper and garlic powder.  Thread onto skewers.  

The sauce – on stovetop 3 parts teriyaki sauce, 1 part hoisin sauce,…

Thai-Style Spicy Mussels

By on July 19, 2014

Last week was “classic” mussels, let’s mix it up with a not-so-classic Thai style –  a little One Night in Bangkok after your April in Paris.  A little sweet, a little spicy – coconut milk, pineapple, fresh ginger, lime and hot hot serrano peppers – what’s not to love….

Sauté chopped shallot,…

Classic Steamed Mussels with Buttered Crusty Bread

By on July 11, 2014

This one’s easy as all get-out (well, mostly) and a real crowd pleaser.   The ‘mostly’ refers to de-bearding the mussels which can take some time. Otherwise a snap.  

In a pot or dutch oven, lightly sauté chopped shallot and garlic in a nice pour of olive oil and…

The 70’s Beach-Wich

By on August 24, 2013

We’d take this sandwich to the beach in the late 70’s.  Let’s bring it on back:

Oven to 375º, halve pitas and stuff with black forest ham and sliced cheddar.   Into the oven on a lightly greased cookie sheet until the cheese melts and the pitas crisp up.  Let…
