I am an Italian native living in Northern California. I write memoir and food stories, cook a lot and photograph the world around me.
Good Things Come Small-Packaged
Farmer's favorite grilled lettuce
A Hearty Belgian Mash
From community garden to table
A savory taste of West Africa
Seedy in a Good Way
My husband learns to bake.
Dark leafy greens two ways.
Some plants have a lot going for them.
When in doubt, ask the farmer.
The Many Lives of Strawberries
Sweet and savory and even in frittata
Music of the (Edible) Spheres
Aebleskiver are the new pancakes
Dip into Muhammara
I like to make world peace happen on my table.
It happens every year. Summer is over and I am despondent...
Got Fruit? Make Cobbler
A light, crisp crust draped loosely over a deep layer of tender, juicy fruit: This, in a few words, is a cobbler.

Easter Egg Bread
I used to go egg hunting as a child. When visiting friends with chickens, I would go into the henhouse to look for an egg for myself.
Make It Green
March is a difficult month. No longer winter and not yet spring.
