TRAVEL

52 sundays; august 18, 2013

The two-story white farm house is tucked away at the end of a winding gravel road; deer and other wildlife share the land with a couple of dogs and a few other homes along that road but here, life is tranquil and meditative. The front end of two old rusted […]

ADVENTURE GETAWAY WITH GEORGIA PELLEGRINI AND A GIVEAWAY

Georgia Pellegrini is a trained chef and published author, beautiful, smart, incredibly talented and fearless – as in knows-how-to-use-a-gun-hunts-fishes-kills her own food-cleans her own food-plays-hard, kind of fearless. A couple of years ago she put together her first Adventure Getaway and invited several of us to join her; I had […]

GLUTEN-FREE BLT BITES & A TRIP TO NYC

The Professor and I have been on the road quite a bit this summer; in fact, we’ve been on the move since March and still have a few more shoots to complete before the year is finished. It’s been a wild spring and summer but we just wouldn’t have it […]

PICKLED-BERRY GIN & TONIC

Last summer we spent several weeks in the Seattle area with Shauna, Danny and Lucy; we were there shooting several video pieces as well as sharing stories, birthdays and some of the glorious foods of summer. It’s just a normal day when the Aherns gather friends around their table and […]

ON TRAVELING AND NAVIGATING CELIAC

The Professor and I have been very fortunate to have opportunities to travel quite a bit the past few years; it’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s challenging and it has stretched both of us in ways we’ve never expected. It’s probably been more of a growing experience for me than it […]

52 sundays; april 21, 2013

It’s been a while since we’ve posted a ’52 sundays’ post – and I have to admit I’ve really missed this; sometimes life just gets far too busy and suddenly you discover it’s been months. Here are a few photos we took while in Columbus last month – all of […]

THE JENNINGS & A TRIP TO COLUMBUS

Last month, The Professor and I were invited to attend a special food ‘Pop-Up’ – a collaboration between Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs Jonathon Sawyer of Greenhouse Tavern in Cleveland, Jenn Louis of Lincoln Restaurant in Portland and Columbus’ own Kenny Kim & Misako Ohba of fRESHTSTREET Yakitori. The event […]

FENNEL SALAD WITH PRESERVED MEYER LEMONS

The Professor has left for campus, the house is quiet except for the hum of the humidifier and the occasional mew of a cat; a mix of sleet, rain and snow tumble from the cloudy, gray skies as a fickle Mother Nature straddles the weather fence in deciding which it’s […]

CEDAR SALMON WITH BERRY SAUCE

Hollywood has a way of making lasting impressions; having never traveled to California wine country, I’ll admit that visions of Falcon Crest (for those of you old enough to remember the show) painted a picture that wine was only for certain people – the uppercrust.
