The Best Burger, Ever

Once I had an ample supply of homemade ketchup and bread and butter pickles, I set out on a quest to make the best burger ever. For me, that means that the ground beef has to be pasture raised and grass fed by a farmer I’ve actually met. This is not an easy proposition on Cape ...

The Moistest Banana Bread

The Moistest Banana Bread

Most banana bread recipes make two loaves, which was fine when we had four children at home. Now that there is just the two of us, I decided to create a recipe for just one loaf by combining the best ideas from a few different recipes. It was recipe success on the first try. This ...

Roasted Garlic and White Bean Hummus

Fridays are my favorite day of the week. It has long been our date night and we rarely make plans to do anything because we are both ready to just relax at home by then. This is even more true lately, because life just seems more fraught and busier than ever these days. The leisure of ...

This week our weekend family dinner was smaller than usual, but still plenty of fun. Julie, Gary and little Lilia came over. Lilia is almost ten months old and her new tricks never fail to awe us.

Baking Like a Pro

It’s a lot harder to be creative with ingredients that have to be measured precisely and techniques that guarantee the best results.

An Easy Weeknight Dinner - Chicken Picatta

An Easy Weeknight Dinner

Chicken piccata, with its bright lemony sauce, is one of our easiest go to recipes. The actual process to make it goes very quickly, so I always make sure to have all the ingredients fully prepped and waiting in little bowls before I begin cooking. To that end, I squeezed two small lemons and added them ...

Gambas al Ajillo or Spanish Style Shrimp Scampi

We are having a locavore type of week – in February. It’s amazing how much progress farmers on the Cape have made in recent years. Five years ago, it was nearly impossible to buy local sources of protein. Now the choices are nothing less that dazzling at the Winter Farmers’ Market in Orleans. The Winter Market ...

I have a friend who thinks we have the perfect Hallmark Christmas. Not so. If I had to pick the closest book/movie to describe our reality at Christmas, it would be “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” For those unfamiliar, it is a story about a Sunday school teacher trying to put on a spectacular Christmas ...
