Matzo Brei

My weekend was filled with long walks, frigid wind, taking my trike out for the inaugural ride of 2015(!), eating far too many Cadbury mini eggs, and matzo brei. A typical Easter/Passover weekend.

Media Meltdown

Do I like bacon? Yes. Do I LOVE bacon? Not really. Do I find it physically painful for throw away food? Absolutely. Do I love a new cookbook? You betcha. What about magazines? Sure thing. When needed, do I take Metro-North Railroad? On occasion. Do I then complain about my bum falling asleep due to […]

Here’s a post that I never thought that I would write. Mayonnaise. The name alone used to send shivers up my spine, and now? Now the shivers stop at my waist. Several years ago, I decided that I had had enough of my food taboos. I had never been an overly picky eater, but there […]

Noodles not Pasta

I recently taught an autumn pie class, and at the end of the course one of my students gave me a vintage Pennsylvania Dutch cookbook she had picked up at an estate sale. I had told the class that I have a fascination with heirloom cookbooks. The book was her thank you for teaching her […]
