I’m obsessed with Jessica Seinfeld and I don’t care who the hell knows it. While others might swoon for the Duchess or contour like a Kardashian, I’m all about a lady who cooks with a healthy side of snark.
Food and Wine Pairing
Last Sunday night, faced with a mountain of random dinner party leftovers, I stared in the my fridge and saw a perfect family meal appear before my very eyes. With a little help from Food52, I whipped up what has now become my new most favorite one-dish meal: Prosciutto and Sausage Paella.
I have looked everywhere and I cannot find a blog entitled “How to Get a Healthy and Family-Friendly Dinner on the Table in Five Minutes After Surviving Work, School, and Soccer Practice.” Could someone start that blog, please?
I am. I am back!
It’s been approximately 365 days since I wrote on this blog in any serious, substantial way. I have hated ignoring the blog, but the process of writing Drink Progressively, our wine education and food pairing book out this fall, was creatively draining. Even on the days when I wasn’t writing the book, it was like a soul-sucking creature looming over my every move (I promise it’s going to be great despite that last sentence!). But it’s done, and I’m free to remember the joy of writing a quick little something every morning on the blog.
Obviously I love to cook, but part of keeping my love of cooking alive is knowing when to get take out. I try to plan for at least one night a week, because even the most dedicated home cook needs a freaking night off. That night was supposed to be last night, but the slowly wilting contents of my fridge made me reconsider, put on my apron, and come up with something fantastic.
My obsession for Greek Salad is well-documented, but it’s lost a little spark for me since having to go completely dairy free. I mean, isn’t the whole reason for eating Greek Salad to ingest as much feta cheese as possible?
