I had such a wonderful time at this event! And I couldn’t wait to share it with readers. But, days passed. I found I had so much to say that I couldn’t wrap my brain around it. And, because it was such a unique and picturesque experience, I took way too many photos and then I couldn’t decide which ones to post. I also wanted to tell you all about Delray Beach, the town that hosts this event. Oh, yes, and I kept floundering on what to title the post? Florida’s Longest Table? Street Food? Dining with 1000 Neighbors? Oh, hell, why not just go with the name of the event?!
I fear, if I waver any longer, the moment will have passed (at least for me). So, herewith…a really fabulous ‘foodie’ evening. Continue Reading
I hope this photologue warms you up for a spell and reminds you to ‘hang in there’…it has to let up soon!
[Conversely, here in Florida we already hit 90 degrees one day last week which I sure hope is an aberration.] Continue Reading
If you’re like me, you have a cupboard full of infrequently-used spices. The likes of caraway seeds, pumpkin spice, juniper berries, etc. were taking up valuable real estate in the cabinet and it annoyed me when I had to fish around searching for the ones I wanted. So, one day I decided to make my own blend. You know, like the expensive ones you see in the market and say “I could make that“. Well, I did! Continue Reading

I’m always on to the next thing. Sometimes I move so fast, things get left behind…like the half-dozen or so half-started posts I just found in my draft folder. So while I’m currently busy working on some other things (including a no carb diet ), I thought I’d post a few.
This one was dated October 30, 2010. Better late than never, right? Continue Reading
However, if you’re a fan of calamari and things from the sea…if you’re a pasta lover…if you’re looking for something different to serve up, this one is for you! Continue Reading
Many people are intimidated to attempt Asian cooking in their own kitchens but the truth is that it’s really simple. All you need are a few specialty items in your pantry. Soy sauce, mirin, miso, rice vinegar and sesame oil are good staples. Add srirachaca chili sauce, if you like a little heat.
It’s just that simple.
A month or so ago, I was approached by Kalle Bergman to contribute to a new concept in online magazines, Honest Cooking.
From Kalle: It is not run by an established old-media-conglomerate, nor is it a recipe sharing website for traditional forum based foodie interaction. Instead, it is a serious and ambitious new online food magazine, with the goal to feature the absolute cream of the crop of food and wine bloggers and writers. (Blush.) I liked his ambition and I liked his style. A lot!
The magazine launched Monday. As promised, it has interesting articles that are very attractively presented. This is my first contribution.
