opener romaine

Somewhere recently, I had the most delicious grilled romaine lettuce–it was cut lengthwise, and grilled, probably in a wood-burning oven. I tried copying this the other night, and it worked pretty well. I just drizzled it with olive oil, and sprinkled it with coarse salt and pepper, and put it in the oven at 350 […]


We love a wedge salad…if it’s on a menu, we order it. But even though we love it so much, the creamy dressing does make it a bit too rich. Our friend Dewey has the best solution. He makes a mustardy-vinaigrette with crumbled blue cheese in it. There’s still the bacon, so don’t worry, it’s still rich. […]

Ingredients Endive, radicchio, hazelnuts (crushed or at least halved), oranges or grapefruit (whatever […]

eggs on kale

It was perfection, and is my new favorite thing that I crave for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Super easy, it was kale with some coarsely chopped almonds, roasted delicata squash, finely grated pecorino, and then […]
