This was a surprising recipe that I sought out in order to use up some of the abundance of farro that has been living in my cupboard for ages. Space is at a premium in this tiny apartment so my old days of buying in bulk are relegated to only a few ingredients that can […]

After 31 years of wanting an egg cup my mom sent me a pair of pretty purple porcelain ones last week. OK, so perhaps I’m exaggerating about the 31 years thing but it’s entirely possible that my Bread and Jam for Frances egg cup induced obsession began while I was still in utero. At the […]

At one point I used to Tivo half of the Food Network’s programming but now I have it down to just a few. The celebrity chefs I still enjoy watching include Ina Garten, Ellie Krieger, and Anne Burrell. I especially love how exuberant Anne is about food.

I found this recipe several months ago and wanted to wait to try it when strawberries were actually in season in Massachusetts. Lately though it appears that everyone has been on a strawberry posting binge. Everywhere I look it’s strawberry this and strawberry that and I just couldn’t stand to wait anymore so I bought […]
