Parsnip Gratin

Gratins make anything better. A nice cheesy, crunchy crust on top of any vegetable is an improvement. I also love that you can make gratins ahead of time and finish the cooking in the oven, so you can leave the kitchen and entertain guests.

The last ramps of the season were sitting in my fridge, and what better way to use them up but with some eggs and bacon. I also had some leftover homegrown swiss chard that was given to me, so I threw those in with the ramps. A healthy way to start the day! Of course, … Continue reading »

Chicken with Porcini Mushrooms

This was a quick weeknight recipe that I created to use what little was left in the pantry. It’s a little Italian like a chicken cacciatore, a little French with the vermouth and cream, definitely delicious. It ended up being my favorite dinner of the week. And with only boneless chicken breasts, it cooks really … Continue reading »

Baked Clams with Bacon and White Wine

Baked clams can really be a vehicle for anything you want to stuff them with, and I usually make them with some variation of this recipe. Make sure to loosen the clams from the shell though, or you’re going to have a mess all over your table. Baked Clams with Bacon and White Wine 6 … Continue reading »
