In Our Easter Kitchen for #FoodRevolutionDay

Last Sunday we celebrated Easter...there are many aspects to our celebration. For my parents, it's primarily about resurrection; it's a religious celebration. But it's also about spending time with family. They always have a game picked out that we play between lunch and dessert. This year we played a dice game called Left Center Right. Link to the game below.* What fun!


For the boys, it's about Easter eggs and - maybe - candy and an egg hunt; it's a party. 


For my husband, it's about the feast...mostly the desserts. This year he requested a tiramisu. I still need to post that recipe!


And, for me, it's about celebrating all the crisp, fresh flavors of Spring. We had Butter-Braised Radishes over Little Gems, Roasted Asparagus and Shaved Fennel, Blueberry Kouign Amann, and more.




One of April challenges for the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Ambassadors (I'm the Monterey #FRD2015 rep!) is to...

Cook with Your Loved Ones...on Easter!

My Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf helped me quite a bit this year. He came to the farmers' market with me and asked if he could make a kale salad with the Serendipity Farms' Red Russian kale. Of course!


Here he is. And here's his recipe: Massaged Red Russian Kale.


D also helped me with the Herbed Barley Salad.


He also helped me with the table centerpiece. We had Chamomile in our Easter Vase!


Did you cook with your loved ones on Easter? 
What did you make?

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
