The torrential rains have melted away, gracing us with crystal clear skies, bursts of sun and highs in the mid 40s, heralding the return of Madam Nature’s fall line: scattered showers in grey monochrome with morning temps in the high

お粥: Japanese Soupy Rice Porridge For Colds & Unhappy Tummies

Christmas is around the corner and the neighborhood is redolent with the sounds of sneezing and sniffling. Yup. It’s the season of giving and nothing keeps on giving like the common cold 😉 I’ll often go with chicken matzo ball

Gnocchi With Tangy Roasted Eggplant & Tomato Sauce

I admit it. I’m an impulse shopper. I’m not drawn in by $XX.99 signs, buy 1 get half off deals or convenient displays at the checkout counter. Nope. I see something succulent or unusual at the produce department or in

No More Mushy Stuffing Three Cheese Wild Mushroom Dressing

Teutonic Dichotomy Or Pfifferlingknöpfle: Herbed Knöpfle With Chanterelles

In many ways, the humble spätzle (spaetzle for the umlaut averse) seems to embody (to me) the Teutonic psyche in a nutshell. Traveling abroad in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific, the fellow tourists we kept running into time and
