Hissy Fit Inducing Ricotta-Lemon Pancakes

May 27, 2008

This dish is a perfect example of why everyone has urged and pleaded with us our whole lives to read through a recipe in its entirety before starting to recreate it.  It’s really not just something your mother says to wind you up or question your cooking abilities.  Case in point, these ricotta pancakes that […]

Avocado Toast

May 13, 2008

CK and I are really enjoying our weekly Boston Organics deliveries. We even purchased a cooler to leave in the lobby for the nice delivery man to transfer our yummy fruits and veggies into for safe keeping until one of us wanders home from work.  I had to revive my lettuce a few too […]
