Can't believe the gorgeous produce at Bronx Borough Hall Greenmarket - across the street from my house on the Grand Concourse! Fresh, local, sustainable - I'm cooking!
Blueberry gin sour cocktail
A gorgeous gin sour cocktail made with blueberries. Refreshing, pretty and the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
Local baby heirloom tomatoes from the farmer's market + fresh bocconcini from Arthur Avenue + vinaigrette made with Young Living Basil, fruity olive oil and fresh lemon = Insalata Caprese. We ate this for breakfast before hopping on a train - if we'd had time we could have polished off another easily. Moreish. We've started dinners with caprese only to decide it's really all we want. Garlic bread. Wine. Done. #supportfarmers #buylocal #cheesemadebynonna
When Top Chef Carla Hall was given the task of making a "last supper" for Jacques Pepin she served buttered tarragon peas as a side that clearly - for him - eclipsed everything else she'd prepared. Her peas were fresh - mine were rescued from the back of the freezer. Frost-bitten and old. Didn't matter - they were transformed by butter, shallots, YL tarragon, YL thyme and lemon. Tarragon with peas tastes like spring - these were great and were all I needed for dinner.
Chicken Cacciatore by way of Janet and Aaron's garden. Eaten at silly o'clock because John bought the chicken after work. Fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions, thyme, parsley and garlic + Young Living Oregano + organic chicken + Malbec + crazy/stupid impulse to cook after 10pm = Happy John. The fresh sage is waiting for pork - coming soon... #HappyLaborDay #besafe #YouLivingLarger
As promised - pancakes. Made these for the photo series "Processed Foods We Will No Longer Be Eating." And then I ate them. In other news -John says the Mets are crushing it - so that's happening. #auntjemimaandmrsbutterworthhaveleftthebuilding #bringontheEinkorn #goMets (!)
