In the summer, I love to make the sort of meals that can be tossed together in a big bowl and served at room temperature.
Here. Have a cookie.
These cookies are delicate, buttery and limey. True to their name, they are meltingly tender from a generous amount of confectioners’ sugar and a little bit of cornstarch.
It’s getting to the time of summer when it seems that what I want more than anything is a cool drink in my hand.
This salad is creamy and tangy and salty and earthy. The lentils give it a heartiness while the arugula lightens the dish and adds some much needed greenery.
It was a weekend of heat and sweat. Dan and I walked nearly ten miles as we criss-crossed Andersonville and Ravenswood and over to Lincoln Square and into Uptown as we went to open houses for seven condos and one house.
