I rarely turn down Italian food, so when I was asked to go to Esta Esta last week I happily accepted. I had never been to the Italian eatery in Monroeville, PA, and wasn’t even aware of it’s existence.

Popcorn is awesome- especially if it’s coated with butter, salt, and a pinch of sugar. I’ve also always enjoyed Cracker Jacks- the combination of candy-coated kernels and peanuts makes me smile- I still look forward the prize at the bottom!
it is finally that time of year when cool season leafy green crops are coming in waves again. but, even as a mainly herbivorous minded eater, i can only tolerate so many salads. luckily, i have a diffusion process that i call quiche eating. my garden is still inundated with rainbow colored stalks of swiss chard, kale, and spinach. these plants are cold hearty and can tolerate temperatures as low as fifteen degrees which is great news for my belly and lucrative for local farmers. i work with and for farmers- greens are never lacking in my kitchen. while my original recipe is made with spinach, i have been experimenting with the other green things that seem to be reproducing up here in growing zone 6b! think turnip greens, beet greens, and kohlrabi greens. this recipe is versatile and lends itself to experimentation which is one reason that it has been part of my repertoire for a decade.

Do you like tuna salad? Well, salmon salad is even better. Whenever I fabricate salmon for grilling or pan-searing, I always have various parts left-over. I never throw this extra salmon away… it’s too valuable!
