French in a Flash: Camargue Red Rice Salad

RECIPE: Camargue Red Rice Salad

A few summers ago, I spent a day in the Camargue, a part of France that had, for some reason, completely eluded my knowledge of the country.  Cowboys.  French cowboys, that ride around on snowy white horseback, in a flat … Continue reading

Thanksgiving Redux: Autumn Apple Sangria

RECIPE: Autumn Apple Sangria

Thanksgiving Redux: Smoked Turkey, Munster, and Lemon Baguettes

RECIPE: Smoked Turkey, Munster, and Lemon Sandwiches

These are inspired by my favorite sandwich at Yura on Madison.  Chewy skinny tiny baguettes (or you can cut up big ones) layered with thinly sliced smoked turkey breast, Munster cheese, romaine lettuce, vine tomatoes, and lemony mayo.  Tie them … Continue reading

‘Twas the Night Before: Thanksgiving Redux

RECIPE: Spicy Thanksgiving Turkey Meatballs

Tonight was a strange Thanksgiving Eve.  Instead of doing my giant shop, vacillating between Brussels sprouts and green beans and then deciding to get both because, come on, it’s Thanksgiving—I was at the London Whole Foods, buying boxes of already-cooked … Continue reading
