Avocado and Tomatillo Salsa – Recipe

Avocado Tomatillo Salsa

Many years ago. Gulp. More than two decades ago, when I lived in the Bay Area, I would visit friends in the Mission District of San Francisco and inevitably eat at one of the great neighborhood taquerias. Many of them keep little jars of an avocado-based salsa on the tables, to add a little creamy …

Wacky Chaat

Chaat is a whole family of amazing snack foods from India that are served by street vendors and informal restaurants.

Quickie Amba (Pickled Mango Condiment) – Recipe

Quickie Amba Pickled Mango Condiment

Rigatoni with Roasted Cauliflower and Spicy Tomato Sauce – Recipe

Rigatoni with Spicy Tomato Sauce

I‘ve had rigatoni on the brain recently. KitchenAid was kind enough to send me this pasta-extruder attachment for review and I had in mind to use it to make saffron rigatoni and then serve it with cauliflower in several textures. Unfortunately, the day got away from me and I had to settle for a simpler dish …

Farro and Chickpea Soup – Recipe

Things this soup will not do: Win any beauty contests.

Things this soup will do: Warm you to your core on a cold day. Nourish you. Fill your belly. Leave you with an abiding sense of contentment. Wash and fold your clothes.

This is a tradeoff I can live with.

I haven’t been completely sold on the farro …
