Funny thing about what I do here

My brother funkadelic P
I find lots of joy in preparing food for people. My kitchen is where I feel most free, authentic and vulnerable in a good way. The “process” of playing in my kitchen is quite a kick. Oddly enough, while my food is typically pretty solid, I feel spent after plating and serving. Most of the time, I enjoy the “work” and not necessarily the “spoils”.

Agnolotti with fresh red sauce and a few Brunellos

The first Friday in August was a lovely 81 degrees as the sun dipped below the treetops. Fresh pasta from Eataly in NYC, wine from the basement. Throw some garlic and crimini mushrooms into the sauté pan, and the kitchen transforms into a savory, humid lively space.

An added bonus was the fragrant, bitter and rich olive oil with a semolina baguette. Simple stuff. Food and music.

Comfort food goes well with comfort music. Enjoy the weekend.

Music in my kitchen….

Peaceful spot

Clean up is done, it's after bedtime. all I hear are crickets, frogs. The woods outside are alive.

Where do you make food? Gas or electric?

Fried Green Tomatoes with Spicy Buttermilk

Avocado and red peppers, scallions

I’m very interested in seeing how you interpret my musings. Let's go.

Corn Chowder

Rick Williams
Sweet corn, chicken stock, thyme, and some patience

Honey + Comb

This was a gift from a little store in Perkasie, PA. That store has since closed, bummer

Seared steak sandwich

Arugula, scallions, not sure if that's goat cheese...

Lamb chops

I could eat these once per week. Little potatoes, too.

Caesar Salad

I LOVE making fresh caesar dressing, croutons, etc.

Buttermilk!

Littlenecks in broth

Pretty sure this was just clam juice, olive oil, white wine, tomatoes, parsley, garlic. Put them in a cast iron skillet and then put that on the grill.

End result of littleneck clam dish

Summertime dinner

Blackened Fish Tacos

I will make tacos any night, anywhere. Maybe my favorite type of food due to the simplicity of the concept. Get as involved as you like!

Sushi...

I occasionally embarrass myself for my family and friends. The cool thing is, they all say it's wonderful!

Wine and herbs

Amy Acker

Root was a beautiful character. Robust, badass with a heart. Hey, I miss her.

Person of Interest, anyone?

Shall make lots soup and chili this fall and winter.

Pearl Jam: Hail, Hail [HD] 2013-10-15 - Worcester, MA

Pearl Jam performs "Hail, Hail" live at DCU Center in Worcester, MA on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. This goes out to the little boy who wanted to fight me because I didn't want to sit down AT A PEARL JAM SHOW. It was adorable. Subscribe to my channel for more live Pearl Jam in HD!

Pearl Jam song stuck in my head - Hail Hail

Fresh Buttermilk Biscuits

Local farm honey and honeycomb, fresh butter

All day away with soccer matches, so prepped early and let the pork butt cook :)

The Hold Steady - Chips Ahoy!

Uploaded by cigarettetenor on 2009-05-03.

The Hold Steady is a staple in my kitchen. I have NEVER seen them live, but on my list. I shout out to my friend P-Funk for turning me on to them a few years ago. Yeah, you’re right!

Shrimp with Tomato Cream Sauce

Shrimp sauteed in garlic, then tomatoes, fresh basil and a touch of cream to finish.

Spring, finally. Still cold here in PA though. Waiting for the truly lovely, warm weather to arrive and take advantage of outdoor spaces!

While i’m waiting, this is a little of what's been playing in the kitchen.

Along with a nice veal Marsala. Happy weekend everyone
