Back in October, Chaser and I took a little time to eat and drink our way through Spain. Barcelona and Madrid, to be more specific. We’d need a lot more than 8 days to make our way through all of Spain, but it’s on our to-do list, no doubt. Both cities were beautiful and fascinating and definitely similar, but…
There are so many things to say about this recipe, and yet also so little. It’s fried cheese! What more do you need to know?
We love clams in this house. Like, lurrvvveeee clams. They remind me of my dad – who worked as a clammer in his past life, before being swept away by the casino industry. They remind me of my friends and of the long summer days when we leave the beach and head out for a “no…

I planted all sorts of goodies: English peas, sugar snap peas, green beans, RAMPS, chard, kale, butter lettuce, arugula, mesclun mix, Romanesco cauliflower, broccoli rabe, strawberries, and a whole mess of herbs.

Spain. Beautiful architecture. Charming countryside. Scenic coastline. Tapas. Sherry. Paella. It’s a pretty magnificent place. But… I’ve never been. Coming up in a few weeks in the little town of Brunol (near Valencia) is the annual city-wide tomato fight, La Tomatina. Every year during the last week in August, a huge festival is thrown celebrating […]
