Back to Basics

Now that I have a big project behind me, I’m trying to get back to “normal”–which means exercising once in a while, going outdoors, and eating something other than frozen food from Trader Joe’s.  God bless Trader Joe’s, but it gets a little depressing to eat three meals a day out of your freezer.

With all the dark chocolate salt caramels I’ve been eating, I’m looking to do a little spring cleaning of the ole’ bod with fresh fish and vegetables.  I think I might try this recipe posted at Orangette: Poached Halibut with Sweet Garlic, Parsley, and Lemon Adapted from Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s Weeknight Kitchen newsletter.

 And I’ll steam some artichokes on the side.  There were some at Easter brunch yesterday and I’d forgotten how much I love a good artichoke.  Calling mom for homemade mayonnaise recipe (nothing like anything (or any mayo) you’ve had before).  If you’re lucky I’ll share…

Good Food

I recently discovered Orangette, a food blog by Molly Wizenberg.  Wizenberg melds food writing, journaling, and memoir, the way so many great food writers do, and posts beautifully composed photographs to boot.  Someone got wise to her skills before me, because she got a book deal out of it.  A Homemade Life, Wizenberg’s food memoir, will be released on March 3, 2009 (by Simon & Schuster, natch).

In addition to being a fun blog, Orangette has an amazing recipe index and the most thorough and thoughtful “About/FAQ” section I’ve ever come across (including Wizenberg’s musing on photography, the practice of blogging, and an eater’s guide to Seattle).

In addition, Wizenberg writes a monthly food column for Bon Appétit magazine called “Cooking Life.”  

Enjoy.
