Note: This recipe and accompanying text originally appeared  as a guest post on Eat Boutique. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I flipped through Sophie Dahl’s new cookbook, Very Fond of Food, admired the pictures tremendously, and even made a delightful recipe without having a clue as to who she was. After thoroughly stuffing my face, […]

Inevitably when I go to the grocery store I buy both lemons and limes. They’re a staple (at least in my head) along with parsley, potatoes, and onions. Unfortunately the poor lemons seem to always get the short-end of the stick. While the limes find frequent homes in a sparkly glass of Hendricks Gin, lately […]

Height. Volume. Luster. These are usually adjectives that we use to describe what we wish our hair looked like on a daily basis (see Blake Lively for a real life example) but in this instance I experienced all three of these lovely words in conjunction with a muffin and it appears I owe it all […]

After channeling my inner Mickey Rourke and physically wrestling the remains of the Oh!

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 […]

Limoncello Uncapped

April 21, 2008

After a long and involved process the Limoncello was finally sampled on Saturday.  Beforehand though I spent hours in the kitchen prepping dinner.   Unfortunately several glasses of wine into the evening it completely slipped my mind to take any actual shots of the cooked food.  No doubt, a common hazard of the “job.” In reality […]

The Care and Feeding of Limoncello

April 9, 2008

I feel like I’ve suddenly acquired a lemon slice filled aquarium. Should I name the curly pieces of zest that float about in their sea of Absolut all day? Lucy? Lola? Is that you?! Honestly I had no idea that making lemon flavored booze would illicit such a strong and varied response from the world […]
