German Potato Salad

German potato salad can be served hot or cold, though most people think of it as “the hot potato salad” which does sound weird, but is itĀ less weird once you know thatĀ there’s no mayonnaise in German potato salad? In fact, the dressing is mostly bacon fat! Some vinegar. A little sugar. It really reminds me […]

Cucumber and Orange Salad

This simple cucumber and orange salad was inspired by something I ate at a farm-side restaurant outside Barcelona years ago. I was on a very-low-budget European tour with a girlfriend in 1999 and one of the many many many pickles we found ourselves in on that trip included the time my entire purse — passport, […]

Roasted Cabbage

I know. Roasted cabbage. BO-RING. But, y’all, this is one of my go-to vegetable side dishes. Seriously we eat this once a week. So I wanted to tell you how to roast cabbage! First you cut the cabbage into wedges. It’s easiest to cut it in half lengthwise first, then lay each half down and […]
