     On my recent trip to visit my son in Brooklyn, I made sure to schedule the class Cooking with Wild Foods and Weeds at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, because you never know when a dandelion will be your last meal and it would be taught by Marie Viljoen- a woman a greatly admire.    […]

  • Sue - Serviceberry cookie-? Because I have a serviceberry tree growing outside of my office/front of house. The flicker birds come is large flocks every year and rudely strip the serviceberry tree of every last berry.
    It is so cool that you combined your visit to see your son with a cooking class by a fellow blogger. We and everyone else in the neighborhood have lots of dandelions in the yard when we don’t spray for weeds.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - That’s right. She husks them and then grinds then into a powder and adds them to almond flour- very tedious but they were DELISH! And you can steam the dandelion stems (like spinach) or just cut them up into a salad. I remember munching on dandelion stems as a kid. TThey’re kinda tart. It was a fun class and Marie is such a charmer.ReplyCancel

  • Caro Ness - Splendid!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hi Caro! Nice to meet you! The class was splendid and the idea of foraging for food is very interesting. Thanks for stopping by!ReplyCancel

  • Dana Hemelt - Those photos are making me hungry, Cheryl! Wanna come over to my new kitchen and make me dinner? My plans for supper seem pretty sucky right now.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Oh boy…. hungry again!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl Nicholl - I know. It’s a gift.ReplyCancel

     On one of our frequent foray’s into the urban culinary jungle of New Orleans, we landed at a Steak joint.     Not my favorite thing.     Steak that is.      Beef really.     I have nothing against hearty Bovinea and the rich flesh they provide us. We all need protien. It’s just that […]

  • Krisztina Williams - Oh boy, that steak looks sooooo good. I rarely eat beef because I can’t digest it very well anymore, but I do love the taste. Every now and then I get an insane craving for it! I would have a lot of fun eating my way through the south!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Wow! You’re quick!!! LOL. This was THE BEST beef I have ever tasted. If you’re ever in New Orleans…..ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne - MyHauntedAttic - That steak does look amazing.
    You’ve gone and made me hungry now!

    Those cravings you had with your 2nd child,
    were you sleeping all day, hiding from the
    sunlight, and up all night hunting more beef?

    Another great post : )ReplyCancel

  • Kristi Campbell - I’m not a huge fan of beef either but that does look amazing! And now I need to eat lunch. Again.ReplyCancel

  • M L Dyson - Adding this spot to my place of eateries when I visit New Orleans in July! It all looks so scrumptious!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Don’t worry about finding good eateries- just throw a stone, as they say. I just know you’re going to have a great time! Enjoy!!ReplyCancel

  • adventuresinlowvision - I ate enough chewy steaks in my life to feel like a cow chewing curd instead of enjoying a nice cut of beef. But this one you talk about, this one sounds just right. Even to a person like me, who normally doesn’t go for the steaks, would go for this one. Maybe it’s time to fire up the grill…ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - It looks scrumptious!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl Nicholl - OMG it was sooo good I could barely breath! (See above reply) That good! And William- you are a luv for skimming around her and leaving your pearls of wisdom. Thanky.ReplyCancel

     When you are surrounded by fine dining establishments (and I don’t mean necessarily ‘fancy’, I mean ‘delicious’), you tend to walk around and follow your nose, or the buzz, or the dogs.     Yes, the D-O-G-S.      And some of them are H-O-T.     With a side of fries.     ‘Cause that’s how […]

      It was an unexceptional day.     Blue skies and a gentle warm breeze.     Doors open with the smell of jasmine mingled with the sound of police sirens.     Bread rising in the bread machine because, well, I have a bread machine.     Husband practicing his fly fishing moves in the street […]

      So, you think I don’t get around?      I get around even when I’m not trying to get around!     Like when I’m on an errand run, to the dry cleaners (for Ben who has only two favorite shirts), and the bank (Please, sir, I want some more”), the gas cabal station, […]

  • KarenWendy Irving - Hungry now…and want jelly beans…ReplyCancel

  • Chris Carter - OHMYGOSH that Reuben looks AMAZING!! Glad you got to eat before you went to jail! 😉ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - The gas cabal station is all too accurate.

    I’d like a reuben… but on different bread. I’ve never liked rye or pumpernickel.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hey William. Nice to see you here. As for the bread- it’s pretty much my enemy (Carbs) in all of it’s glorious forms- but a gal’s gotta live once in a while.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Newlin - I want that cookie with the chocolate star on top! Those are my favorites and no one makes them anymore. Frick!

    And I’ve come across those meter maids giving me a ticket before and they will not negotiate with you. So i take it as an excuse to stay parked there a little longer and go get that cup of coffee. At least your parking is going to be paid for!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - That chocolate star was a handmade dollop of ganache! Creamy fudge. Truth be told- I ate that first! ANd, yes I let the car sit all day and too a taxi home. So there!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - I’ll take a Cup-O-Joe (with cream) and a Reuben (rye or marble rye) to go please, and chocolate truffles on the side. I’m high maintenance like in When Harry Met Sally.ReplyCancel

  • onefunnymotha - That looks delicious.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - It was. I haven’t had a rueben in ages. Thought I’d treat myself after dealing with insane meter maid. Or kill her- it was a choice.ReplyCancel

  • Lorelei - Hi, just figured out how to post here. DUH!
    Nice post, Cheryl, and you made me want chocolate all over again. Darn you!

    But yes. I suggest a nice chocolate treat after that meter maid paid you such injustice. That makes it all worth while, I think. We can kill her later. I can send a vampire or werewolf for you, just say the word. I’m connected, you know?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hhahahaah. Actually, I should have you on speed dial. Glad you figured it out and I hope to see you hangin’ in the hood frequently!!!
