We also don't like turkey. Last year we made short ribs; this year it's cassoulet.

I'd like to see more editorials. I love the Meditations series and miss the kind of food writing that used to appear in Gourmet. Maybe something like that could find a home here.

Also, I prefer recipes to be housed on site, rather than linked to. There are enough food blogs out there; I'm looking for recipes that are curated and tested by "someone" I trust.

Wow, these are some delicious-sounding menus. Ours is simple--adult snacks for our toddler's late afternoon birthday party:

figs with pecorino romano
toasted hazelnuts with thyme and fleur de sel
strawberries
chocolate truffle cake
lots of cava!

I'm writing my dissertation and cannot, under any circumstances, work at home, where I am inevitably tempted to eat, sleep, and (especially) clean. I write at the library or at cafés.

I'm shocked--I've lived in Santa Cruz for 13 years, and this is my old neighborhood! Never thought it would be AT-worthy....

Driving up the coast to pick pumpkins out of our favorite patch by the sea, returning to slow-cooked meals.

I'm part Indonesian. No one can separate me from my ikat (or my batik)!
