Pig Roast at Oratamin

What a feast! The excellent cooks at our pool club pulled off a total win: a pig roast! Butterflied, injected with soy and apple cider and cooked low and slow for many, many hours, this was some of the most delicious […]


Pizza on the Grill at Oratamin

A very cool tradition started by Mary and Nicole at Oratamin: pizza night! Everyone brings fixin’s and dough, and we set up the grill for a feast. I brought chanterelles! We put stones on the grill to prevent sticking. All […]

After a big haul from the farmers market, we spent the morning enjoying — and preparing — the fruits of our labor! First, breakfast. A perfect peach. The, for dinner later, fresh field peas: Getting the ribs ready for smoking!  Making […]


First BLT of the Season

As I said in my Instagram post, I hope nobody calls the authorities. We’re jumping the gun just a little on the season. But man, it was delicious. We are hoping we don’t attract the attention of the authorities by […]

Rancho Gordo Beans!

Rancho Gordo is a Napa Valley company that pretty much single-handedly set up a market for heirloom beans. We’ve been buying (and loving) them since 2009 (see our posts on our old blog here: Rancho Gordo beans). We stocked up […]

Sour Cherry Pie

It was a stellar year for cherries, let me tell you. All in all, we made a pie, a shrub and 4 cases of preserves! Yes, your Christmas presents are all ready! Our famous pie recipe can be found here: […]


Salmon Salad

We loved this salad with cedar-plank salmon, asparagus, strawberries, eggs, pickled onions and avocado. Served over lettuce and mint from the garden. Kelli and Marissa joined us for supper on the porch! Related posts: Supper on the Porch: Cedar Plank […]


Dyeing Easter Eggs!

Using our recipe from last year, and a little help from a new source here — thanks, Mommy Pottamus! — we dyed our Easter eggs with natural dye. Onion skins, beets, turmeric and red cabbage!   Good times. Good eggs. […]


Homemade Pizza

Hunna is on a pizza kick again. Yay for us! This one was made with the Roberta’s dough recipe, but in a sheetpan and topped with Hunna’s homemade sauce and some crumbled sausage. Delishy. Related posts: Roberta’s Pizza at Home, […]


Saturday Night Supper at the Farm

An all-local dinner this evening, well, unless you count the Loire Valley sparkler I picked up at Joe’s wine shop. Beautiful Montauk oysters (yes, again): And a cedar-plank salmon caught somewhere between here and Newfoundland, I’m told. Plus, lentils and […]


Oysters for Valentine’s Day

The oysters we get at the Palisades Farmers Market — they come from the cold waters off Montuak — are just so delicious and affordable that we can’t help but pick some up a little more often than maybe we […]


A Big Wine!

On a random winter Saturday, we decided to open a big bottle of wine. B-I-G big! We brought two up from the cellar to decide. Both bottles were gifts from our Wine, Wit and Wisdom Shower, an engagement party-slash-Jack and […]
