I was in the mood for shrimp and happened to turn to this book, the first cookbook* from the community-based website Food52, of which I am a member. Not a real active member but still, a member. It’s a great book. Reliable. How many cookbooks can you say that about? I found a recipe simply […]

Wonderful, warm, chewy oat and cinnamon pancakes to spice up your day.
For the Summer issue of Sun Valley Magazine, I wrote a story about honey and a beekeeper based in Hailey, Idaho. I learned much about bees, including how do they know which hive is theirs? And, why is the queen not technically a queen? Tom Harned, a former stay-at-home dad, started with 40 hives. Today […]
When is a grilled cheese a melt, or when is a melt a grilled cheese? Until that pressing question is answered, may I present what I call a spinach and feta grilled cheese. (I know, there is no feta in the picture above, but trust me, it’s in the mix. I just forgot to put […]
Google “potato leek soup” and you’ll get 911,000 results in 0.48 seconds. But I know a secret Google doesn’t know. This recipe right here. It’s the only one you need. So. Delicious. Especially after it sits for 3 or even 4 days. That’s right, it’s even better on day three than two, and certainly better […]
Twice a year, Sun Valley Magazine publishes a dining guide filled with articles about the Wood River Valley food scene. For the winter issue, I wrote a story about braising — that wonderful, slow cooking technique that turns tough cuts of meat into meltingly tender morsels. But meat isn’t the only benefactor of braising. Long-time […]
Who doesn’t like to talk coffee? I finally sat down with Liz Roquet of Lizzy’s Fresh Coffee in Ketchum, Idaho, for a lengthy discussion about the science of coffee — from bean to cup — for an article in the winter issue of Sun Valley Magazine. (It took a while. A couple years ago I […]
I can’t stop fussing with my granola recipe, which I’ve dubbed “the world’s most expensive granola” and “the world’s best granola.” The former is probably true, the latter is a biased opinion. My latest experiments involve reducing the amount of sugar in the recipe. It’s no secret my former iterations were super sweet. No wonder — think […]
The fall issue of Sun Valley Magazine is about to be released (I wrote about melons and HarvestFest), but first I thought I’d share a couple articles I wrote for the summer issue. I tackled two of my favorite summertime subjects: beer and barbecue. In the first article, I explore what exactly is barbecue and what […]
The publishers of the quarterly Sun Valley Magazine, a luxury lifestyle publication covering Sun Valley, Ketchum and Hailey, in the picturesque Wood River Valley in central Idaho, launched a new quarterly magazine in Boise last December, called Territory. Boise is hot. It’s home to Boise State University. The downtown area is exploding with new construction: hotels, […]
