Lucky Comestible 6(4): Potato Terrine with Apples and “Goat Cheese”

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I’ll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days.  The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before I move on to the next lucky comestible. This is the fourth entry on […]

Potato Bruschetta

Well,  you know what they say. . . the best laid plans sometimes go AWOL (or something like that).  In my case, plans for the Labor Day weekend–well, Sunday, actually–were waylaid by an impromptu visit. . . to the emergency room. No, not for me.  The HH, however, is still recovering (and he’ll be fine, […]

Three Shindigs and a Mid-Term (Break)

[Okay, so the post title is a bit obscure (I was alluding to Four Weddings and a Funeral)–but with the Oscars coming up in a couple of days, and with my having seen, hmmn, let’s see–a total of “zero” of the movies, I wanted to make reference to that grand little Golden Guy in some way or other in this post. ] [Slice […]

Nava’s Sweet and Sour Cabbage and Bread Stew

Now is the discontent of our winter. The dozen or so of you who were reading my blog last year at this time probably remember how much I hate the snowy season.  (How much, you ask?  As much as Gepetto hates dishonesty.  As much as Ellen loves Portia.  As much as the calories in a […]

Warm Dandelion-Potato Salad

To me, summer means potato salad season. And coleslaw season, and watermelon season, and ice cream season, and gin and tonic season. . . but primarily, potato salad season.  So, quick: when you think of potato salad, what type do you think of? Well, there are the “smooth and creamy potato salad” people.  There are the “tangy, […]

Kale and Potato Lasagna*

*Or, Mastering the Legacy of Mush and Goo When I was a kid, my mother was a fairly conventional 1960s housewife (well, except for the Valium) whose cooking style, too, adhered to convention; she’d cook pretty much the same seven dinners every week, according to the day: Mondays were hamburgers and mashed potatoes.  Tuesdays were veal chops and green beans.  Wednesdays were franks and beans.
