Taste buds prickle; wanderlust triggered. An Argentine barbecue (asado) enticed me to Patagonia. A friend gave me a vial of ground sumac berries--4 months later I was waking at dawn to the "Call To Prayer" in Turkey. Porcini to Tuscany, and so on.

It’s beginning to rain cherry tomatoes; the forecast predicts it will turn into a flood. Today I made an extremely low labor, nutritious dish that incorporates the beginning of this bounty. Basically all I did was roast salmon and cherry tomatoes together, then make a little sauce with the roasted tomatoes by tossing them with … Full recipe post

Here’s an easy one pan dinner recipe where the dressing works double-duty to season the salmon as well as the roasted potatoes. Here’s how it works: Make the dressing and use part of it to marinate the salmon. While the salmon is marinating, preheat your oven then roast the potatoes several minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven, make space … Full recipe post
My dear friend Mara and her “brood” have flown in from N. California to roost with us a few days. We were roommates at UMich our senior year of college. I was the “outsider” naming Alabama my home. Mara, an Ann Arbor native, introduced me to the nooks and crannies of my new inimitable little … Full recipe post
I’m not buying into the theory that Mother’s Day is a “Hallmark Holiday”, commercialized beyond recognition, so can be ignored in good conscious. “Mother’s Day,” according to Wikipedia, “…is an annual holiday that recognizes mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds in general, as well the positive contributions that they make to society.” In the United States, … Full recipe post
I wish I could say I used fresh shucked black-eyed peas (oh so good), but I had a bag of frozen and can’t remember when I purchased them; time to clean house. If you can get your hands on some fresh black-eyed peas or crowder peas, use them instead. This turned out to be a delicious meal, and … Full recipe post
In three short days — Father’s Day — dads across America will be lassoed with ties and wallpapered with Hallmark, as retailers restock shelves vacated by tool sets and grilling kits. All fine gifts, to be sure, but I’ll bet you a “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug that what Dad wants most is to spend … Full recipe post
My heart skips a beat when wild salmon is on sale; I have to buy a hunk. This recipe makes good use of garden herbs and a profusion of nasturtium blossoms, which is an edible flower with a lovely, peppery flavor. One of the best tips I’ve ever received was many years ago from a clerk at the Produce Station. … Full recipe post
Combining mayonnaise and Dijon mustard, then spreading the mixture over fish fillets prior to baking, is a simple recipe mom often made for us, way back in the prehistoric sixties. It remains a super-fast recipe I often turn to when I’ve little time to fuss. The mayonnaise she used was better than the one I used — … Full recipe post
Here’s another healthy and easy to prepare recipe. The vinaigrette works overtime serving as a marinade for the salmon and a dressing for the greens. I choose the heady flavor of Fustini Walnut Oil, available in Kerrytown shops, and combined it with my favorite mustard for making vinaigrettes: Maille course or smooth Dijon. A bit … Full recipe post
One of the favorite food sites to which I subscribe is Citron & Vanille — the recipes are always interesting and delicious, but sometimes the products are difficult to source, and the preparation can be extensive. Case in point, her recipe for Saumon en Feuilles de Blettes, Puree de Chou-fleur, Fondue de Legumes et Jus d’Estragon. I know … Full recipe post
When out-of-town guests pay a quick visit, I don’t do much cooking. I love showing off Ann Arbor; the renowned campus, downtown eateries and shops are far more entertaining than my backyard. But I’m a cook, and guests expect a bit of something special from my kitchen. Last week a good friend from Seattle, Jeannie, … Full recipe post
I assumed my four-pound November/December weight gain would relegate me to average American statistical data. It turns out I’m wrong. According to a scientific article in The New England Journal of Medicine, the average weight an American puts on over the holidays is about one pound. That doesn’t sound so bad, but the article continues … Full recipe post
I have a small amount of salmon and and a bit of cream cheese left from the weekend. It’s just enough to spread over a toasted bagel half, but I’ve got a better idea. A couple of eggs and voila: it’s an elegant supper for one. My new favorite magazine, the spring issue of Fine Cooking’s … Full recipe post
This appealing appetizer is certainly worth of your attention; especially if you enjoy an easy, make-ahead smoked fish nosh that’s a bit different from the status-quo smoked whitefish or smoked salmon types of spreads. I saw the recipe in a Vitamix cookbook and in a brief glance knew it would be a spread I’d love. Certainly the … Full recipe post
