My good husband Dan’s birthday is April 1. I know, an April Fools baby. Explains a lot, really. I am counting on nine people being fully inoculated by then (three of us already are, including me), that we’re all on a sunny patio in lovely San Carlos drinking beautiful wine and eating multiple tasty courses over a four hour gathering. I’ve already started the menu.

Here are four highly recommended dishes (these are starters) from my foodiverse.

Thought I’d give you a taste.

Chef Tom – Parker/Parkour

From the Master himself, the Grand Daddy of the Pillsbury Doughboy himself, James Beard, and one of my top-tiered go-to recipes sites, Serious Eats (includes a secret ingredient for extra fluffiness), comes two ways to make one of THE best bread rolls ever.

We’re all baking now, amirite? Roll up your sleeves, put on some tunes, and pour a glass of good wine. It’s ok to dance around the kitchen. No one’s looking. Except your husband, who knows you’ve gone round the bend, your kids, who are climbing the walls like Spiderman and screaming like Banshee, and your cat, who doesn’t really give a shit.

Alright, take a deep breath. Notice how much extra time is on your hands right now. Notice, too, that boredom has been kept at bay for a while, but it might be rearing its ugly head a bit more these days. Finally, embrace the insistence, the doggedness, the determination of your body, mind, and soul for pure, straight-up comfort food.

Now, read through these three recipes and visualize the sheer, indulgent, no-place-like-home, grandma’s-in-the-kitchen, oh-my-god-this-is-so-good nostalgia of it all, as you sit down with a good cup of tea and fix yourself a lovely-and-large slice of still warm homemade whole wheat bread, slathered with good butter and sweet jam – that you made yourself!

Got it? Can you see it? Is your mouth watering?

Good. Yum. Continue reading

Joyce Goldstein is one of my all-time favorite chefs. I own a half dozen of her cookbooks, including one that I return to over and over. Solo Suppers was designed with the single diner in mind, but, according to Chef Goldstein, the recipes double really well. So, if you and your partner are hunkered down together, this would be a great cookbook to own.
