Yesterday on my way home from work, I had a craving for lemon cookies.
It cracks me up when that happens. When, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, you get a craving for something VERY specific and obscure.

I have a new-found love for brussels sprouts.
Weird, I know. I think it was boredom with my usual broccoli-cauliflower-asparagus rotation coupled with a life changing dish I recently had at Ardeo (crispy brussels sprouts with pistachios, apricots and yogurt) that did it. In any case, thought I’d share a particularly-delicious recipe I found on Closet Cooking. The tang of the apple cider vinegar with the sweetness of the maple syrup and spiciness of the mustard makes for an amazing blend of flavors!

101 Simple Salads for the Season - New York Times
This article has lots of good ideas. One of my favorites: Mix a can of tuna with tomatoes, parsley and olive oil. Add chopped apples, halved seedless grapes, chopped red onion, olive oil, a bit of cumin and black pepper. Doesn’t that sound yummy?
Getting frustrated trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight.
Does anyone have a yummy dish to recommend?
I’m going to a ‘red party’ this weekend. Everyone has been asked to bring a little something to eat or drink that somehow incorporates the color red. The options are almost endless, so I’m trying to decide what to make. Here are some of my ideas:
