springtime dinner

Even though this dinner requires turning on the oven, it makes enough to serve us for several meals, is great eaten cold, and makes the most of veggies that are at their best in spring and summer. It is great as a “clean out the fridge” meal, but we often buy all the ingredients just in order to make it, it’s that tasty.

food, glorious food

homemade granita!

I’ve talked food before on the blog, but surprisingly little. Practically no one knows this, but for a short time, I actually had a food blog—eating and cooking are definitely two of my passions. I always kept the knitting and cooking separate, but I don’t really think they are—both are ways to express creativity. Having subscribed to cooking magazines for years, and even editing several food reference books and cookbooks, well, I know a thing or two about food. I have a lot of fellow foodie friends, and we often get together to cook.
