It’s been a while

Here we are a year later. Last year I had just dashed into Boston for a quick hair do at Vidal Sasson, followed by a trip to my favorite lunch place Myers and Chang. And here I am… All about cheese now. Read more

blue boston

boston is small and livable, full of colonial white wash. But still a city. Read more

cherry stones at the oysterfest

When did mid-october turn into an extension of summer. Today we trekked down to Wellfleet, Read more

throwing rocks – do not

what I love about this scene is that the sign writer is pretty adamant about asking us not to throw rocks. Read more

silver threads

rushes, gilded feathers, gossamer peacocks. Fanciful silver strands of christmas icicles, stuck in the ground they are nature’s ornaments.   Read more

artisan cheese company

so it’s all about cheese right now. The planning, the eating, the tasting, the comparing, the scariness of it all. The excitement of it all pregnant with possibilities. Read more

lobster + ice cream

one of the beauties of being in New England is the abundance of lobsters. Rip and I eat our lobsters differently. Read more

ouch hot

following along on the theme that I over planted in the vegetable garden, I find that I have a green red thumb for growing peppers. Read more

fruit jellybeans that are tomatoes

a trick was played on me this garden season. I planted eight tomato plants (down from 36 last year). Anxiously I waited their arrival. How big would they be? Read more

birthday surf

I was able to get down to Cape Cod around my birthday time. Alone, for a day, with no one else except for my thoughts, and an orange moleskin notebook. Read more

inky, oily, shiny water

i don’t need to look far for inspiration for a color palette. Take this simple water image (thank you Hipstamatic) snapped from my iPhone on my way to work. Read more

play with your food

remember that book “play with your food”? or something like that, where the author / photographer created faces and people made from garden vegetables and fruit? Read more

it’s not a thistle, but what is it?

i came across this in Vermont, in a field with tall grasses. But I have no idea what it is, or what it does when it explodes because surely it has to explode what ever secrets it holds inside.  Read more

a cheese plate

i’ve been eating a lot of cheese lately, as one might have noticed, and I’ve been talking cheese a lot too. I spend much of my time learning the difference between a washed rind and a bloomy rind, and documenting it all. Read more

hues and tones

I’m considering a palette. Something that would inspire culinary curiosity. Read more

catching a fancy

we’re working on a new venture, a project. It’s in the future, and thinking about it, even in my sleep, is exciting. I’ve taken thousands of photographs over the years and have archive upon catalog of images. Read more

vermont wild flowers

there’s a lot to love about Vermont and getting away from the confrontation of my daily commute. This weekend we traveled hours and hours to grab a little quiet. We found it in the tiniest of moments. Read more

stichelton – you say that three times fast!

I trekked to Formaggio Kitchen in the South End today. I knew that they carried some Neal’s Yard cheeses, and I had a hankering for a bit of blue. Read more

come on already. The summer this time around is splendid. It’s perfect weather for growing. Read more
