Sooner or later I should post a dessert recipe that isn’t cake, right? I guess I just can’t help myself. Placed in a room full of every vegan dessert imaginable, cake would be my first choice every time. But give me time: once the internship eases up I’ll be baking more treats, and they can’t…

A few weeks ago, a friend and I met for lunch at Maman here in the city. It was cold—in typical April-in-New-York fashion, we’ve been vacillating between damp and chilly and summery warmth—and the restaurant was drafty. We huddled over cups of tea and had some much needed catch-up time. We were both out of…

I’ve always espoused an “everyday” approach to cooking. I’m a home cook, not a chef, and I doubt I could pull off gourmet cuisine if I wanted to. Even when I eat out, I gravitate toward food that’s simple and filling; fancy (and fussy) preparations are never for me. This isn’t to say that I…
