Writing to escape the pandemic has also meant a blog, cooking, hiking and lots of days spent thinking about my past. Today I submitted a piece about bread to an online magazine. But I’m also sharing stories of my father, bread, and a deliciously satisfying turkey soup recipe. Do you like avgolemono? Well, this is a heartier turkey version. Why not try it?
I love lemons, and the more I cook the more I realize they have a place in pretty much every recipe! With this recipe it’s an opportunity to add tangy sweetness to any dessert. Well, maybe not chocolate cake, but then again, your choice! A simple recipe for citrus curd, with some alternatives and some ideas for using it. Why not check out my pavlova recipe, too? The perfect place for a zingy curd like this.
Do you grow herbs at home? Have you wondered how to use them for something different than the usual? How about this recipe for Lemon Fig Chimichurri. A bright, tangy topper for grilled steak or chops, or mix it with a bit more olive oil, some red pepper flakes and a sprinkle of fresh grated parmesan for a great bread dipper!
This recipe for roasted beets is quick, easy, and may even may a beet lover out of you or your kids! Quick and healthy, and I’ve thrown in a lemon basil vinaigrette recipe that will use up some of those pretty herbs you’ve been growing on your deck.
I love lavender, and I love lemon. The two combined flavors in these cookies make them irresistable. And they reminded me of a trip to Gore Place and a treasured book I bought that’s now a collectible item.
Looking for a simple scallop recipe? This one was so simple to make and was inspired by my memories of spending time with family in Nahant.
Some afternoons I like a non-sugary snack. These lemony biscuits featuring the bite of sharp cheddar (inspired by my time in England) definitely do the trick.
Looking for a way to make a meal special? Try my lemon chive compound butter. Great on crescent rolls or homemade bread!
