We've been cooking alot here in SF. With all the fresh produce and free range anything, its hard to resist!
Ina Garten's How Easy Is That? has been an invaluable resource. I highly recommend picking up a copy. The kitchen is fully stocked with all her books, but How Easy Is That? is a great starting point. Bolognese. Trust me. Oh, and Sliders, too.
The New York Times has also been a great source for recipes. Simplest Roast Chicken is one of the easiest, tastiest dishes I've ever cooked. Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper and you're done. Recipe here. I like to cook it with a veggie; you can't beat fresh green beans in a Teriyaki Sauce or baby carrots in a honey glaze.
The recipes are countless, but don't limit yourself to just whats in the recipe, change it up a bit!
Cooking with fresh ingredients is a lot of fun, but it's a lot work. The shopping list every week, the Whole Foods run, and the "I need to stop at Trader Joes on the way home from work because I forgot to grab the basil" trips, make everything all the more tasty.
But Liz is out of town for the weekend, so I'll be ordering a pizza from Long Bridge.
