These are the peppers from my garden this year. You can call me Peter Piper. Thank you. The truth is, that they were planted by my brother’s mischievous friend Francesco. But Francesco dropped off the radar screen sometime in mid-summer when the weeds became unruly and it was time to separate the men from the …

Here’s the thing about Valentines Day. I think it’s strange. It is impossible to get into a restaurant. Flowers double in price. Bad quality chocolate makes the rounds. Lots of pink lacy undergarments abound in various store windows. Saint Valentine, was a Christian martyr. I don’t think he thought very often about Victoria’s Secret’s latest …

I’m at the airport again. I think I am now officially on a first name basis with many airport security people around the country. They have my x-ray on hand to refer to, which expedites things nicely. While I’m sitting here though, I thought I’d tell you about my favorite hot sauce recipe of late. …

“Black-Eyed Peas and a Little Luck”

DSC_3220-copy1

Black-eyed peas are one of those things I only think about on December 31st when I superstitiously rush around looking for them. You see, it was ingrained in me from the time I was a small plump infant, that this is the thing you’re supposed to eat on New Year’s Day for good luck. I’ve …

Moroccan Lamb and Beef Stew

This is one of my favorite stews. It is perfect for the really cold months and for large gatherings when you have a lot of people to feed. In isn’t your everyday beef stew. For one, it has equal parts lamb in it and then it also has a middle eastern flair…a little dried fruit, …
