I’m so enamored of this dish lately, and have written about it so many times, I decided I should probably just post the damn recipe. So bear with me one more time: navy beans sauteed with cabbage, onions, garlic, sage, and smoky Canadian bacon. Creamy, crunchy, salty, healthy, filling, warm – I’m not sure which…

Now we all three match! I couldn’t resist after Suz and Kim accidentally ended up with different colors of the same Eddie Bauer jacket…now I’m the “white chocolate” of what Suz has dubbed our version of a Whitman’s Sampler. Yeah, baby! YUM! We shed the jackets and got down to serious business – mixing Cosmopolitan…

Think I’ll make a big ol’ pot of soup for dinner tonight. Brothy, but enriched with a bit of turkey gravy. Carrots, potatoes, lots of onion and garlic. Turkey of course. Pull some of that challah out of the freezer. We’ll be jamming! Hearty but not too caloric. I’ll let you know how it goes…of…

Kickin’ back in front of the fire, doing a little reading, a little writing, oh yeah, it’s NICE! Nathan just came home, John and A are running a few errands, I fit in a gorgeous walk over by Lake Calhoun – one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday. This weather, come on, it’s…

I believe a turkey-challah sandwich is in order for lunch today, non? With a teeny side of stuffing topped with a smidge of gravy (that damn stuffing, so good, and so not light, eek). Hope you’ve got some tasties planned for lunch today! My friend Andrew Zimmern has a naughty, naughty turkey tetrazzini recipe on…

Happy Thanksgiving! Here we go, wheeeee! The turkey is herb-buttered and officially in the oven, I repeat, officially in the oven (we’re eating at 4:00 so I just put it in, at noon). Salad is a go (nice thing about cabbage salad – improves by tossing with dressing a couple of hours ahead). Brownie “pie”…

Happy 40th Birthday Stephanie! No, not me! Stephanie Sanford, aka Steph, Little Steph, Sanyer, Severine, my roommate, bridesmaid, quarter’s partner, and (with Kim Borgen) my BF since Schroeder Jr. High. My little sister Etta says she’s been raised on Stephanie Sanford Stories and it’s quite true. Everyone loves Stephanie Stories, she’s one very funny chick….

Oh, I’m having so much FUN cooking for Thanksgiving! I decided to start today – tomorrow Nathan is home from school and we’ll be busy. The turkey is a-brining (left), the cranberries are a-popping (or popped, as it were, below), the gravy base is, uh, a-cooling. And the stuffing, ohhh, how I lurve stuffing. I…

How far are you willing to go for Perfect Turkey? By perfect I mean crisp, browned skin over juicy, flavorful breast meat. I’m willing to go pretty far, although I draw the line at roasting the turkey breast-side down (so the breast collects juices) and then flipping the buttery, 14-18 lb, 350-degree bird over to…

It should be spelled Bore-at, not Borat. Yawnsville! Why the hell all the buzz on this movie? I found it neither offensive nor funny, just long, boring, and really rather sad. I’m (clearly) no prude and am in fact a big fan of the butt-fart-poop joke genre as well as truly stupid, crude, slapstick humor…
