I love quotes that add meaning to my life. Here are a few to live by:

How should I eat? (Not too much)
—Michael Pollan

If it is so difficult to learn to cook, how did all those early pioneer women manage to cross the country in rugged covered wagons and feed troops of people from one big pot hung over an open fire?
—Marion Cunningham, from Learning to Cook

Treat treats as treats.
—Michael Pollan

No matter how you slice it through, grain-fed meat production systems are a drain on the global food supply.
—Jonathan A. Foley, director of the Institute on the Environment, U of MN

Potato Salad Two Ways

Potato Salad Two Ways

The story of potatoes continues! This week, I have two recipes for potato salad as well as a new video shot by my friend, Janet Biehl, late last summer showing those two ways to make potato salad.


Author`s Corner

I’m a writer, myself, and so love to read what other food writers have to say. I hope you enjoy reading about cookbooks and books about food as much as I do!

MIndful Carnivore by Tovar Cerulli

The Mindful Carnivore

I first met Tovar Cerulli, a former vegetarian, when he was in the process of publishing his new book about his decision to hunt game rather than eat commercial meat. I was struck by the emphasis Tovar places on mindfulness, and on the consideration we need to have about everything we eat.


Simple Asian Meals

Simple Asian Meals

Who isn’t cooking Asian these days? I just had friends over for a dinner of our grass-fed beef short ribs only to be reminded at the last minute that one of them was a vegetarian. Out came my wok, frozen shrimp from my freezer, some snow peas, green onions, red peppers and a variety of soy, oyster and fish sauces, along with some cooking sherry. I improvised and my hungry friend seemed satisfied with the end result, a quasi-Chinese shrimp stir-fry. But, if I’d had Nina Simond’s book, Simple Asian Meals, I might have cooked a dish that would have made my short-rib eating friends jealous.


Spoon Fed Stories

Some of us, home cooks—and I include myself in this group—love food so much we find our lives structured and embellished by our food experiences. Spoon Fed Stories are our stories, the stories of family and friends. Think of this as the kitchen table where we share the fun and the adventures we’ve had with food.

The Venerable Shojin Ryori Cuisine of Japan by Hiroko Shimbo

The Venerable Shojin Ryori Cuisine of Japan by Hiroko Shimbo

Cookbook author and friend, Hiroshi Shimbo, writes about the special 7th century vegetarian cuisine still practiced today, Shojin Ryori, which I enjoyed on my visit to a Zen temple in Japan this spring.
