We’ve been pining for summer weather here in Boston. It’s been cold, dreary, and drizzly for days. This pasta salad is like a little dose of summer—it’s cool, creamy, and an absolutely fabulous thing to bring to a picnic or barbecue.

I have a great—and relatively newfound—love for white beans. (See? I do eat more than meat.) Here are two of my favorite ways to prepare them. The first recipe is for a thick dip that’s fragrant with garlic and lemon. The second is a creamy, spinach-laden soup that uses the dip as a base. A […]bacon, beans, dip, garlic, olive oil, rosemary, white beans
I know I’ve been fairly rib-heavy with my recipes lately. I can’t help myself. I base a lot of what I cook on what looks good that day at the market. And when I saw these lamb ribs at the butcher, I couldn’t resist. First, the meat was temptingly rosy and shot through with thin […]lamb, lemon, olive oil, oregano, parsley, ribs, rosemary, sage
