In the Harrisburg area, we have a small restaurant chain called Neato Burrito. I discovered it when I was about 19, when it had been open only a year or so. I was instantly smitten.

The salsa of the day on Tuesday and Saturday is jalepeno-feta; it … Read more
We eat a lot of homemade pizza. Weekly, sometimes more, Joe throws a few ingredients into my big stand mixer, and he whips up a pizza crust. Joe’s pizza crusts are amazing.

This recipe is one of those. We used to keep the supplies on hand all the time; we ate them at least twice a week. We may start eating them often again. I think … Read more
I didn’t know what to call this recipe.
I was hungry for salad today. On my way home from work, I called Joe, and I asked him to pick up some vegetables and salad fixings so that we could have a nice big dinner salad.
You know what they say about Momma being happy. Joe stopped at the store.
