There is a restaurant near by to the place we go to the beach that we love. In fact, it’s our new favorite restaurant. It’s an old country house a block from the beach and it has a large front porch on which to eat a lovely gourmet meal. After going there a couple of […]

I knew that I was going to have to serve something along side the tea sandwiches but I struggled for a while to think of what it should be. I knew I wanted it to involve a vegetable to balance out all those carbs from the bread, but I didn’t want to make a salad, […]
I found this recipe a couple of years ago in one of Melissa Clark’s “Good Appetite” columns in the New York Times Dining Section. I have been in love with it ever since.
I know, I know, you must be thinking, “quiche again?” I’ve only given you about six different kinds by now… but… would you buy that this one’s different? Look, if you run with it, I promise to lay off with the quiches for a while… promise.

I worry that I use these ingredients too often. But they are so good I can’t resist them. Kalamata olives are so good and the combination of these flavors is outstanding. That said, they are all also frequently in my fridge so when I’m looking for something to throw together at the last minute they […]
