  • What were you up to in 2002? I was living in Washington D.C., awash in spreadsheets and up to my eyeballs in crazy co-workers. I decided to quit my catering job with the venerable Dean & Deluca, and jump in with both feet into the personal chef business. I heard there was great opportunity, and I was ready for the challenge. The
  • What the heck are pizza beans you ask? Are they beans on pizza?? Pizza on beans?? You’re intrigued, I can tell. 😊 As far as I know the term was first coined by Deb Perelman, one of my favorite blogger/chefs, in her second cookbook. The story goes that she, 6 months pregnant, was invited to a potluck. Instead of making a
  • It’s time to UP your hummus game. I’ve got just the way to take this standard appetizer from DULL (sorry, it just is) TO DELECTABLE. Sure you can peel back the plastic, and serve it right out of the tub alongside baby carrots and pita chips for an instant appetizer. But once you’ve tasted the GOOD STUFF, you’ll
  • Labor Day is here. Yes, the unofficial END of summer is this weekend. The last big hoorah, the last time we can wear white pants (wait, that’s not still a rule!), and the last excuse to party until… well the next party. Do you know what you’ll be having this weekend? I do. This simple – and simply delicious –  corn
  • When I called my parent’s house last weekend, my dad was excited to be watching preseason football. It really snuck up on me this year… I can’t believe it’s time for football already! Even before thinking to ask how the guys were looking, my mind of course went to FOOD. Tailgating means different things to different folks. For
  • Can you believe it’s already back to school time? This summer flew by for us, jam packed with camps and time with friends and family. Those carefree days and late nights for the little ones have come to an end. And as their minds drift back to the classroom, I’m looking forward to actually being able to get something done start
  • We’re in week two of mango heaven! While no small part of me wanted to do three straight weeks of desserts for this mango mini-series, I decided to dive into the savory side with these shrimp and mango “tacos.” (Don’t fret, I’ve got a mango treat in store for next week!) In lieu of traditional tortillas, using lettuce wraps
  • Creamy yet light. Cold and refreshing. This one’s inspired by my mother-in-law who was just over for a visit and LOVES cold soup on a hot summer’s day. Hey, and green is one of her favorite colors! Not only is my version delicious, healthy and satisfying—  it’s as easy as can be. No need to turn on a stove or oven, this

  • How did I use up the leftover beans I had from my Pizza Bean recipe? Rosemary, Parsnip and White Bean Soup. Beans add a rich creaminess to soups without adding cream! Saute onions and garlic in a saucepan. Add cubed parsnips, fresh rosemary, and chicken stock to cover. Simmmer until softened, add some beans, then puree everything in a blender. Add more stock to thin it out if you need, and don't forget the salt and pepper!
