What’s been for dinner lately: Sheet pan pizza with prosciutto, Parmesan, and white sauce. The crust is from America’s Test Kitchen’s “Pizza al Taglio with Arugula and Mozzarella,” but I baked it with a Parmesan/garlic white sauce, fresh mozzarella, baby … Continue reading Still Eating, If Not Writing
It’s way past Thanksgiving, but I did save the pics from baking the apple pie—Whew! I decided that I was kind of tired of the traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. We weren’t having turkey, either, so tradition was kind of … Continue reading Apple Pie for Thanksgiving

I hope you’re not throwing out that yogurt or sour cream or ricotta, etc. that is only a few days old, just because it seems to have developed a puddle of watery liquid where you last spooned some out. I … Continue reading Weep no More, My . . . Yogurt?
