Polpettone: Italian Stuffed Meatloaf

I daydream a lot about cooking during the week, especially when I’m on the train.

Fresh Buttermilk Cheese with Lemon and Thyme

There is no cheese that I enjoy more than high quality, handmade ricotta. For years I poo-poo’d it because all I had ever tasted was the shelf stable, strangely homogeneous, fairly tasteless, mass-produced grocery store variety. And then a few years ago…

Poulet Sauté Aux Herbes de Provence

I read cookbooks to relax. There is no better way for me to unwind than to read a recipe, imagine the finished dish, and consider when I might possibly try my hand at making it. I go in phases…

Tomato and Cheese Auflauf

Auflauf, gratin, casserole…? Because I am 1) living in Germany, 2) obsessed with french cookbooks, and 3) decidedly American at heart, I sometimes just don’t know…
