Nate Appleman’s Lentil and Egg Stew

Meatless Mondays have been missing from our house. It was not intentional but I had trouble finding recipes that appealed to the palate and to the eyes.  But on one of the daily e-mailings from Healthy-ish, Bon Appetit’s latest venture, I spied this recipe. It […]

A perfect warm weather dish: Niçoise Toasts from Molly Baz in Bon Appetit

I fell in love with this recipe in a heartbeat. It just looked so fresh, so complex and yet so simple to make. It’s the invention of Molly Baz who is a Senior Associate Food Editor at Bon Appetit.  She took her farmer’s market finds […]

Ina Garten’s Roasted Shrimp with Feta

          Shrimp is far and away the popular seafood in the country and has been for at least the last 10 years.  Nothing comes remotely close to per capita shrimp consumption which hit 3.6 lbs. last year.  Just for comparison, salmon catapulted […]

         Bangers and Mash I have a weakness for English dishes with picturesque names. Even the simplest of these is a riddle.  “Bangers and Mash”, or Sausage and Mashed Potatoes, is the simplest to understand.  The sausages used in the original recipe, […]
