Nice day! A sensualist’s delight, and not just the weather (which is nothing short of perfect, rarrr…). I opened by breakfasting with my lovely aunt Marge at the Good Earth/Galleria. Love their yummy, spa-like, healthy breakfasts. I skipped the wheat grass (!) and went for steel cut oats with fresh berries, and an over-easy egg,…

This squash, delicata, was new to me in my CSA veggie share last week. I had to look it up – from whatscookingamerica.net: Delicata squash is also called sweet potato, peanut squash, and bohemian squash. This is one of the tastier winter squashes, with creamy pulp that tastes a bit like sweet potatoes. Size may…

Happy Birthday Polly! OK, today is not lovely Polly’s actual birthday. Nor was yesterday. August 7, in fact, was the big day, but we just got around to celebrating it last night (!), with a typically fabulous dinner at Lucia’s. Great wine (they make a terrific daily red and white suggestion, to suit the day’s…

Happy Birthday Maven of Mischief!!! I’m rushing out the door to meet the beautiful Birthday Grrrrl and Suz for a birthday walk and breakfast (Kim took the day off to celebrate – woo hoo!), so I’ll post more later. Suffice it to say that I hope, my dear friend, that you have a Fabulous Day!…

Happy Birthday Rudy! I sadly had to miss Rudy’s dim sum birthday celebration yesterday for Nathan’s baseball game, which was…chilly. Brrr… No need to ice my sore piriformis sitting on those bleachers, damn! And worse, some fan sitting near me was rocking so much heavy perfume that my eyes and nose were stinging and watering….

I (or technically, John) remembered to pick up my CSA veggie share this week – I really missed what I forgot last week! The treasure this week included lovely new potatoes and spinach, so I made a warm potato-spinach salad, with sweet onions and mustard vinaigrette. Made a tasty snack/dinner. I plan on having it…

I have a new hot date each week! Friday Morning Coffee with Suz, it’s a lovely way to go into the weekend because let’s face it, in this day and age weekends aren’t quite the break they’re meant to be. For us, and for everyone else I know, it’s run, run, run! Baseball, basketball, Sunday…

As promised – soup! Here are a couple of recipes for quick, light, AND satisfying soups. The classic Greek avgolemono (egg-lemon). And a quick black bean. Either are ready in twenty, with very few ingredients. Keep in mind that a lovely garnish – dollop of sour cream, sprinkle of toasted nuts, chopped raw onion or…

Another gorgeous September day and I will take it! Makes long walks positively delightful. Along with my iPod – I’ve had one, technically John’s old one, for just about a year and only organized and put my music on it last week! Who knows what the hell I was waiting for…that’s such typical, nonsensical, Stephanie-procrastination…

A very quiet weekend, not much fun to report, actually. Damn! And no cooking either! Didn’t feel much like it, in fact, I’m going to dial down the number of full-on dinners I make each week – it’s just not moderate enough, for me. I do much better consumption-wise if I just have a hearty…
