As I have mentioned before, I don’t like to make separate dishes for kids; whatever we serve the adults we also serve the kids.  They don’t always love it, but we make them try it, and it’s all they get.  The hope is that they will learn to enjoy a wide variety of foods )and learn to react politely when they’re served something they don’t enjoy).  I am frequently surprised at the things they like and the things they don’t.  (My oldest daughter won’t touch mashed potatoes which I really struggle to understand.)  Tonight, my six-year-old son ate what was on his plate and then ate the rest of the fennel.  All of it.  By itself.  Not what I would have predicted, but I’m now looking forward to making this again soon.

After reading this blog, my colleague, former boss, and good friend Rhonda Linginfelter offered to share with me the details of her never-before-disclosed Gumbo recipe.  There are as many recipes for gumbo as there are people who make it, but this one really can’t be beat.  This is perfect for a cold winter day – particularly a Sunday during football season.  This makes a ton, so make it for a group or plan to freeze some.

Fideos con Mariscos

A couple of years ago, Mario Batali, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Bittman, and Claudia Bassols taped a 13-episode PBS show called “Spain… on the road again.”  The show mostly entailed the four of them driving around Spain in Mercedes convertibles and eating incredible food.  Batali and Paltrow published a cookbook based on the show which was the source of this recipe.   Continue reading ‘Fideos con Mariscos’

Butter-Poached Lobster with Mascarpone Orzo

This was the main course for this weekend’s seafood-focused dinner.  It takes some time, but almost everything can be done in advance, making it easy to prepare for guests.  The lobster-cream sauce for the orzo was fantastic, and it should go without saying that butter-poached lobster isn’t going to be too bad.
