Write Your, um, Our Own Cookbook

Ever wanted to write your own cookbook? Well, now you can. Kinda. Tell us the recipes you’d like to see in our next cookbook, and they might make the cut.

Portuguese Saleswoman

What I Miss About Portugal

There’s a lot to miss in Portugal. For David it’s this market woman, a beloved figure in the Alfama district, who knew one of his secrets.

Pink Fuzzy Slipper

If I Were a Mother

These Mother’s Day recipes are the kind of dishes any mother would die for, especially if fed to her in bed. Just ask David. On second thought, don’t.

Calendar Boy

He’s the Reason You’re Fat

Ever wonder why you can’t lose weight? It’s not for lack of resolve or willpower. It’s because some Roman king long ago decided to mess with the calendar.

Wintry House

A Cold Day’s Feast

Despite a bludgeoning blizzard that wreaked havoc on their CT house, David and The One still find nothing’s homier than cooking during white-out conditions.

Healing Plate

When Food Doesn’t Heal

The idea that food can heal all was tested when David cooked for a family member, hoping to help, to persuade, to no avail.

Pumpkin

Giving Thanks

The staff of LC expresses what they’re thankful for this year. At the top of the list? You, dear readers, cooks, followers, and commenters.

Love Food

Love Food

Love food is food you cook for the one you love. Not just lobster and Champagne. The day-to-day stuff, too. As David finds, after 17 years with The One, they’ve still got it.

Sound of Music

Singing Grocery List

Singing your grocery list may sound odd, but as David found out, paper lists get lost but a musical ditty lives forever and ever and ever.
