lunch with david tanis & incredible deviled eggs

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

I’m a cookbook-a-holic. There’s no denying it anymore. At some point, I’m going to have to move into a house with another freestanding building on the lot that I can turn into the RWT Memorial Cookbook Library. I should loan these things out. A recent obsession was A Platter of Figs And Other Recipes by David Tanis. I loved everything about it – its simplicity, honesty and stunning photography. When I was invited to a small lunch gathering to celebrate the release of his newest book, Heart of the Artichoke and other Kitchen Journeys, I accepted immediately.

eat these greens

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

As of this very moment, I want you to forget everything you know about bagged salad mix. That sketchy stuff at your local grocery chain that you have to thoroughly inspect – through an overly-printed package – to make sure there are no wilted, brown or slimy bits in it. Imagine being able to go to an independently owned market and picking up a see-through bag of locally produced, high-quality lettuce for little more than you’d pay at a big-box store.

That day is finally here thank to Podponics, an Atlanta-based company growing some of the highest quality salad ...

in search of some lightness

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

In my typical seasonal rebellion, I’m currently craving foods I have no business eating during these cold, gray days. Light as a feather deviled eggs (more on those soon), tomato-y based foods, crisp salads. We’ve had so many overcast days here in Atlanta, I think it’s actually starting to get to me. I’m even drinking white wine (still) in hopes of capturing the taste of something light and crisp. A ray of sunshine or a burst of color is what I’ve been needing the past few days to get me going.

I’ve also felt sort of remiss about the fact ...

between bowls

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

The past week or two, I seem to be counting time between bowls of soup. Minutes measured in quick bites between work, events and story scouting. Buying fresh food to cook at home with the best of intentions…and just not enough hours in the day right now to carry them out. As the time before we leave to spend the holidays out of town approaches, these quiet and simple meals – trying to use up what’s left around the house – are really precious to me. Using everything I’ve got lying around while I’m busy using everything I’ve got for ...

unseasonally simple

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

Two weeks until Christmas. I can hardly believe it. I remember when the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas sort of meandered along and the season drifted along at this mellow pace. Maybe it’s the hazards of getting older. We have more obligations and more distractions from what’s really important this time of year. I remember when baking chocolate chip cookies with my mom was quite the holiday ritual. She would buy decorated metal tins and we’d stuff each one with tissue paper and hand them off to family friends as a homemade treat – my mom did make exceptional chocolate ...
