These mostly mild peppers (both Shishito and Padron) are a new obsession for me. They first intrigued me because although they are usually mild, about one in ten is a bit spicy. They are the Russian roulette of peppers! If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, they sell a small bag of Shishito peppers... [Continue]

I was fortunate to spend a day at Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, Mexico, on Sunday. Here’s a glimpse of my day in pictures shot with my Samsung NX300 camera and 30mm pancake lens.

It’s peach season! With peaches on my backyard tree, and peaches delivered in my CSA farm box, I needed to whip up something quick. Since Howard is watching his sugar intake, I’ve been wanting to experiment with sugar substitutes. This is low-cal peach ice cream is my first try. Two impartial judges loved it. I... [Continue]
