Originally, I had a grand vision of waxing poetic about finding the magic in winter, once the holidays are over and there is the long sludge of February and March to get through. I’ll save that armchair wisdom for a rainy day, because there really is no winter to speak of, not here anyway, and who am I to be making any grand declarations about winter when we’ve got gorgeous, sunny days in the low to mid-sixties? While the lack of rain is rather troubling, and I am aching for blustery weather, I cannot deny that this mild weather is mighty, mighty pleasant.
I’ve been back at it, preparing and shooting lots of delicious, cozy food for Etsy and Bon Appetit.
This Green Curry with Tofu and Quinoa really hits the spot on a chilly evening. Also there is a mildly embarrassing story about kitchen mishaps tucked in there.
I shot the images for Bon Appetit’s pressure cooker slideshow. Tough picking favorites here. I had never worked with a pressure cooker before, but I’m now convinced that it is the best way to get tender, perfect, falling-apart meat. Yes to that.
And I updated one of my favorite recipes just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Molten Chocolate Cake pictured above. Still just as decadent, dreamy and amazing.
