A play on Pasta Primavera, Basmati Rice Primavera celebrates herbs and vegetables from early- to mid-spring onward.
Soufflé-like in its lightness and texture, but not soufflé-ish at all in its technique or shelf life, this Savory Baked Ricotta is a show-stopper for brunch, lunch or dinner.
Fish baked in parchment paper: Fancy, impressive dinner party, or very quick, easy and customizable weeknight meal? Yes.
What’s in a name? And what’s in the meaning of the name? Think of meatballs. Dense, heavy, satisfying? Maybe. But what if you used a mild whitefish instead? But let’s not call it a “meatball,” ok? Because that just doesn’t sound as light, lemony and tender as they actually are.

Shifting into burger season, I’m reminded of the Alfred Hitchcock movie, The Trouble with Harry. As it turned out, the trouble with Harry was that he was dead.
