this week’s menu – Trying gluten-free!

I am embarrassed to admit just how long it’s been since my last menu. Really, I have no excuse. By some miracle, the Pandes have survived. Food made it to the table. The CSA veggies have been eaten. But being organized is so much more fun. Well, so much easier at least. But I’ve been[…]

this week’s menu – may 5th – on the grill

One more week until our CSA begins! Wahoo!  Guessing next week’s menu will be full of green leafy stuff. I can’t wait to see what we get. It’s still unseasonably cold in Boston. Yes, it’s May and it’s in the 50s. But that hasn’t kept us from firing up the grill. To get into the[…]

After a glorious week of sunshine with friends far away from cold and snowy Boston, we are back and so too is the menu for this week. And a few life lessons to spice things up. Because being on vacation makes you appreciate things a little more… 1. Take that vacation. You deserve it. Work[…]

Le Creuset

This week’s menu – March 10th – One pot wonders…

Hmm. What to make this week? I need a gimmick. Thinking we will try to make all dishes in just one pot. Yes, perfect, one pot wonders! Maybe it’ll be the slow cooker, my mom’s hand-me-down Le Creuset (which I love), roasting pan, or a saute pan… Either way, you are welcome, Ashvin Pande, that you[…]
