Chefs Last Diet by Nrlowell@comcast.net - 6M ago

Cooking and writing are large parts of what makes me, well, me, and less cooking, less writing=less me. Happy New Year to you, and I hope you’re starting the year well. Rachel and I are sitting around in what my mom used to call our gatkes eating bagels and nova and contemplating life. We are […]

I don’t know how your 2017 has been, but mine has been lousy and here comes 2018! I am a firm believer that we have agency in our own lives, and we make choices all the time. Sometimes they’re good choices, sometimes not, and sometimes what seems like a good choice turns out not so […]

I used to write. In fact, I wrote here, on this very blog, at least twice a week. I did take a few breaks, over the past four years and almost 600 posts, but this latest hiatus feels different. I feel like writing as a practice is a distant memory, and until today I had […]

8My family isn’t Greek by heritage, though I would say I was raised in a house that embraced all things Grecian, from art and literature to cuisine.  My mom used to read to us from D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths, something that served me well as an art history major in college. Not only did we […]

I have a love-hate relationship with it, but lately, I’ve been entertaining the notion of decorating my body. Suddenly I find myself seriously considering getting a tattoo. Almost everyone I know between ages 20 and 40 has one, but I am a generation removed from them. When in my thirties I decided— OK, was dared to […]

When I got to the F section of the Woman’s Day Encyclopedia of Cookery I chose to make something that sounded fun but was (pun intended) frankly disastrous. In this section, you will find several pages devoted to frankfurters. There was also a section on Finnish food which involved a lot of finnan haddie, and an oddly skimpy section for […]

Summer is ratatouille season, and though ratatouille doesn’t begin with E, eggplant does. My letter E options were limited, a mere 58 pages. There was an egg cookery section, English cookery and a large section on Entertaining. There were also a few recipes for eel and elderberry, that I ruled out, and a small section of […]

July 2008 was the last time I saw Richard. An old high school friend decided we should all gather to celebrate the year we would turn 50. There followed a flurry of emails the chain growing daily. It included old friends, people I’d barely known and Richard who’d been one of my closest friends through […]

Dumplings are one of those foods that appear across all cultures and the reason is that everyone loves dumplings. Dumplings come savory and sweet, stuffed and not. Your family might call them gnocchi, wontons, matzo balls, kreplach, kartoffelknoedel, and pierogi or one of hundred of other sobriquets.  Though I grew up slurping Campbell’s chicken and dumpling soup, I […]

This is week two of recipes starting with the letter C.  The recipe for cheese sticks sounded vague. I think if I had followed the directions as written they wouldn’t have come out right.  They needed more rolling and chilling to incorporate the butter into the dough.  I am a fan of southern cheese straws, but […]
