I Got Nothin'

I usually post recipes today, but I just returned to NYC after a weekend of travel with my mom. The pickins were slim in the country as far as food and antiques go so I was uninspired and found nothing to feature. Tonight, I'm cooking a tasty meal for baby girl and my husband so stay tuned tomorrow for the the results... I'm thinking lamb and goat cheese inspired by a restaurant my parents and I use to frequent in Philly!

In the meantime, I came across this great article in the LA Times food section. It's by Russ Parsons, author of How to Read a French Fry and How to Pick a Peach: The Search for Flavor From Farm to Table. Anyhoo, check out this article on how to cook with all the amazing produce that's just starting the flood the market. A demain!


  1. Listened to a great People's Pharmacy on 88.3 this evening on the benefits of raw milk in the diet(significantly reduces the risk of asthma and according to a recent European study), and duplicating the dietary practices of our 19th century progenitors. Very interesting indeed. Check out

  2. Yes, I've been reading up on it too and was thinking about taking the plunge until I read about this lady who came down one of the milk-born diseases associated with raw milk. She remains without the use of her hands and legs. So, that freaked me out.

    I read that many children with dairy allergies don't have problems with raw milk. But then again, I also read that in India, the milk is always boiled and the incidences of allergies are very low. Pasteurization is essentially boiling so who knows. It sounds like there are valid arguments on both sides.

  3. Our pediatrician who is old school (downright old, actually, in her 70's) and Polish said that growing up in Poland they drank fresh cow's milk but ALWAYS boiled it before drinking. She thinks homogenization is unnecessary and potentially harmful, but is a fan of pasteurization. Then again, a baby cow would die from drinking milk after we've gotten through processing it.

  4. I love all the recipes not to mention how affordable they are! Your writing style makes them sound so easy! Thanks for the little stories -- they're perfect for sharing with friends. I look forward to more!

  5. "The lamb chop place" Mom and Dad made a good recipe, nice review though.
