We made these delicious black rice bowls at the Run a Luncheonetter Camp in August and served them to the parents at the end of the week. I will absolutley be making this dish again. It is an ideal dish to serve to a large group of people with divergent tastes and dietary restrictions. Whichever topping they choose, it will taste great and look gorgeous!
We received a truly astonishing quantity of green beans from our farmshare in August and September. This is how we ate them for weeks and we didn’t get tired of it! Green Beans are not in season here in November, but I like to have them at Thanksgiving. This recipe would make a great Thanksgiving dish. It is very fast and easy to make.
It’s been a while since I rounded these up for easy access. I can see on the backend of the site that this is what folks are looking for, so I thought I’d make it easy for you! I hope that your Thanksgiving is full of loved ones, gratitude and thoughtful reflection. I’ve specified which…

At the end of October, I cooked at five course dinner for 12 women who attended the Garden of Alchemy event created by The Muses. Each course of the dinner evoked an element (water, air, fire, earth). I will be sharing the entire menu and photos from the event soon! For the fire course, I…
This is a useful recipe to make carrots into something that you can serve as part of a fancy menu or just have on hand for quick meals and snacks.
This is a comforting and healthful soup. We could all use some comfort and health at the moment.
Today is my birthday! It’s never a good day for a birthday. There is often a blizzard, or flu epidemic or bad deadline in mid march. This year there’s a pandemic. Happy birthday to me! If it were ever a good day for having a birthday party, I might make this my requested birthday tart. I…
I have been eating this salad a lot lately. It’s the pleasing texture and flavor contrasts that are holding my attention – bitter, crunchy radicchio and tangy, soft white beans. Also, it’s very easy to make.
