The other night, the “big, fat, juicy steak” requested by my children co-mingled with my neighbor’s Greek Lamb Kebabs.  Eliza’s “lamb lollipops” looked so […]

Maple Syrup Sandwich Bread


A few nights back, we had a coolish afternoon and evening.  It was also a bit damp and I was feeling the urge to bake bread.  I love baking bread and my family loves to eat it.  Rock Star status is guaranteed when I pull a yeasty, golden loaf from the oven. Life around here often dictates […]

Sahadi’s and Taramosalata

Sahadi's and Taramosalata

When I used to live in Brooklyn Heights, I could easily jaunt over to Alantic Avenue to Sahadi’s for my favorite Middle Eastern foods. It was here that I was introduced to taramosalata – a salty, lightly pink creamy schmootz. The main ingredient is tarama which is fish roe (eggs from cod or carp) but don’t let […]
