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. My mom converted to Judaism when she married my dad, so growing up, we had a fairly normal, suburban, Jewish home, filled […]

Joe’s Special

This is what we had on New Year’s day at my house: And it was perfect! The holiday season is over, and as much as I heartily welcome it each year; I am always ready to bid it farewell in January. Having the holidays fall on a a Tuesday this year really messed with my […]

Fresh Eggs

I grew up in the suburbs, and have lived in one city or another for most of my adult life, so I had never had the pleasure of eating a fresh egg before. And I mean fresh.. like straight from the chicken fresh. But this all changed for me last week, when a generous neighbor […]

A Simple Bourgie Hash

Sunday Brunch. It seems that lately I have been having guests over quite often to partake in that not-quite-breakfast-but-certainly-not-lunchtime, ritual. It is a wonderful way to entertain– more relaxed, carefree, an assemblage of sorts. There is no worry over what wine to serve (mimosas do just perfect), no sit-down courses to worry about getting on […]

A peculiar thing is happening to Bay Area farmer’s market, and I’m not sure that I like it. They are becoming very much in fashion, in vogue, and not always in a good way. In other parts of the country a farmer’s market is a place to get wholesome farm fresh produce, much better than […]

Spear Me the Egg-y Details

Sometimes it is the simplest meals that are the most delicious. A soft-boiled egg, small and self-contained, proudly standing tall in its porcelain cup is the perfect brunch-time antidote to a weekend filled with too much wine, hearty foods, or both. An ideal vessel in which to dip a slice of lightly grilled rustic country […]
