How to Dry Herbs
How to Dry Herbs - May 8, 2014

This is the time of year I find myself drying herbs. In part, it is because I tend to come across special, unusual varietals in the spring and summer - caraway thyme, pineapple sage, fresh coriander. Some will appear for a week or two, then aren't seen again for another year...

Deviled Eggs
Deviled Eggs - April 14, 2014

We had some beautiful deviled eggs leftover from lunch on Friday - they had an herb-flecked filling made with Greek yogurt and topped with chive flowers and toasted almonds. I packed them, along with a big pot of soup, for an overnight with friends in Bolinas.

Poached Eggs in White Wine

Herb Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs
Herb Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs - August 15, 2011

A scrambled egg recipe taught to me by the lovely Lynn from Satsuma Press - herby cream cheese is the last-second finish that make these eggs simple but special.

Buttermilk Farro Salad

Farro & Herbs
Farro & Herbs - June 6, 2010

Because I can't seem to get enough farro lately- a lunch made from farro, bocconcini, a bit of homemade creme fraiche, and herbs from last weeks farmers' market. And a couple pics from Golden Gate Park.

Japanese Pizza
Japanese Pizza - March 21, 2009

Known in some circles as Japanese pizza, this is my take on okonomiyaki. Plenty of egg-battered cabbage is pressed into a skillet and cooked until deeply golden on both sides. It is served cut into wedges and sprinkled with toasted almonds and chives.
