  • Homemade Lobster Ravioli

    Posted on February 21, 2014 by Becka in Recipes.

    The other day, I got some great news from a dear friend: she’s pregnant! What does that have to do with lobster ravioli? Well, she lives in Maine, the thought of which makes me long for a creamy lobster roll enjoyed along coastal Maine in the summer sun. Warmer though the temps may be here […]

    For many, the last week of summer means saying goodbye to tank tops and garden-grown tomatoes and hello to long sleeves and pumpkin-flavored everything.

    Posted on March 11, 2013 by Becka in Recipes.

    I’ve never met a chicken liver pâté I didn’t like and am always tempted to order it when I see it on a menu. It’s relatively inexpensive, it’s sweet and savory at the same time, and has such a luxurious mouthfeel. Some might argue chicken liver pâté is an acquired taste. Maybe it’s the mental […]

  • Clarified: Butter is Better

    Posted on February 21, 2013 by Becka in Food Musings, Recipes.

    There are a lot of products on the market nowadays that are intended to be butter substitutes. But in my opinion, there’s no substitute for great butter. People are concerned with the amount of saturated fat in butter, but as long as you practice moderation, you shouldn’t need to exclude anything from your diet. There […]

  • Quinoa with Toasted Pine Nuts, Feta and Basil

    Posted on February 4, 2013 by Becka in Recipes.

    Quinoa is one of my favorite foods. It’s healthy, versatile, and simple to make. This grain-like plant’s edible seeds make a great side dish or a light main dish and are loved by carnivores and vegetarians alike for their high protein content. Similarly to rice, one part quinoa is cooked in two parts liquid, softening […]
