Pasta Salad with Ham and Artichokes; Deruta

Pasta Salad with Ham and Artichokes; Deruta

When we lived in Andorra, one of our favorite day trips was to La Bisbal d’Empordà on the Costa Brava, Spain, to buy pottery. When we lived in the US we went to Tubac, AZ (once) to buy pottery. We love pottery. What I love about all of our pottery, and all pottery, is how ... Continue reading...

Autumn Pastry, deconstructed; Emma, la Gorda!

Autumn Pastry, deconstructed; Emma, la Gorda!

El Gordo!  The Fat One!  That’s the name of the big lottery Spain has every Christmas. Emma, la gorda!  Emma, the fat one!  That’s what the neighbor kids called our sensitive big, white, girl dog on her last visit to her former human and village. She had been known as ‘Emma, la bonita’, Emma the ... Continue reading...

Pork Chops with Spanish Rice

Pork Chops with Spanish Rice

This is an easy, skillet dinner.... everything cooked together. I use brown Basmati rice in this dish. Mine cooks in 20 minutes and I like the healthy aspect and nutty flavor of brown rice. You could substitute plain white rice or your favorite. Adjust cooking time if needed..

Bread Baking Babes Olive Oil Wreathes

Bread Baking Babes Olive Oil Wreathes

One of the things I miss about living in Andorra is being able to buy good olive oil at a reasonable price. It’s also one of the things I miss about our trips to Spain. I usually came home with three 5 litre cans and three 3 litre cans of good olive oil for cooking ... Continue reading...

Sausage, Pepper and Fennel Risotto

Sausage, Pepper and Fennel Risotto

I don’t use fennel as often as I should. There’s no particular reason; it’s just one of those vegetables that I’ve never gotten in the habit of using. Our friend in Spain is never without some in the fridge. I regularly walk past it, not seeing it. I’m attempting to change that. Sausage, Pepper and ... Continue reading...

Puppies and Pigs

Puppies and Pigs

Tags: Spanish, Meal, Meat, Ham

First the pig: This is the ham that Núria (of Spanish Recipes) brought for me. It was the best ham I've had since the last time I was in Spain. This was the good stuff. Lesser hams are cut neatly, in nice, pretty slices.  The really good stuff is cut in ragged slices. But the real ... Continue reading...

Aioli or Allioli; Festa Major

Aioli or Allioli; Festa Major

Allioli One of the things I miss about Andorra is the Festa Mejor Major. We have nothing like that here in bucolic France. Every hamlet, village, town and city in Spain and Andorra has their own Fest Major in the summer.  Where we lived, Andorra/Catalonia, the celebration normally went on for 4 days.  There were ...

French Potato Salad

French Potato Salad

We did something today that we haven't done in ages…. Or ever, actually. We forced the puppies into the back of the car and went on an outing. They haven't been in the car since they were spayed last fall…. We want to go visit our friend in Spain, and the puppies get to visit ... Continue reading...

It's a holiday!

It's a holiday!

We're off, doggies and humans, to visit our friend in Spain. That's his house. There is no internet access in the village – they have radio phones. There are no cables up that high. Even my mobile doesn't work. I will be cut off from everything but this little village for 4 days…. Do you ... Continue reading...

Puppies, part II

Puppies, part II

Tags: Spanish

We've been in Spain, visiting our friend in the mountains, and picking up our new puppy. There were eight surviving puppies in his Misty's litter, which was perfect: she could feed them all without help and there were eight people anxiously waiting to provide homes. Unfortunately, over the last few weeks, two of the families ... Continue reading...

Warm Mediterranean Chicken Salad on Spinach; Spring

Warm Mediterranean Chicken Salad on Spinach; Spring

Spring can be both a frustrating and a fun time in the kitchen.  I can't wait to get the barbecue grill fired up but as soon as I plan on it the weather turns cloudy, cold and rainy. Spring! I dream of sitting outside with a chilled glass of a Spanish rosado but instead find ... Continue reading...

Turkey Newburg: with Sherry and Iberian Ham; Romantic Spain; our Valentine's Day story

Note: This is a reprint from Valentine's Day, 2008.  I didn't get my act together in time to participate in Mele Cotte's Cucina d'Amore this year, but I wanted to share this recipe, again, as it makes a lovely dinner for two… As to our Valentine's story, well, it did have a happy ending! The ... Continue reading...

Potatoes, Sarlat-style; the good fat

Potatoes, Sarlat-style; the good fat

Back in the beginning of time, I was eating the absolutely fabulous, outrageously expensive Jamón Ibérico de Bellota in a restaurant in Spain, carefully trimming the fat as was my habit at the time. The waiter came quietly to my side and, in a low voice, instructed me that ‘here in Spain we eat the ... Continue reading...
