Verjus: try it, you’ll like it!

I first came across verjus (ver-joo) in cooking school, and I was immediately sold on its tangy goodness.  I have since tracked it down and bought some of my very own with the…  |  READ »

Some Recent Testing

Recipe testing, of course. Salt and pepper bread.  Ok, it sounds a little weird, but it was tasty.  I just put cracked black pepper inside and some fancy flaky sea salt on top-…  |  READ »

On Running

So, much like in years past I’ve been running a few days a week throughout the fall/winter.  I know there are a lot of people who think that running is incompatible with cycling…  |  READ »

Ever think of vacationing in North Korea?

Ok, neither had I.  Luckily, the guys from VBS.tv went for us.  Check out this video that documents their guided “tour.”  It is only the first part but the other two parts are on…  |  READ »

Sausage, fennel & white bean ragout

Quick! Easy! Delicious! When you are (almost) too tired to cook.  For a veggie version, I think eggplant would be a great substitution for sausage Sausage, Fennel and White Bean Ragout 1 small bulb…  |  READ »

From the kitchen

Anadama bread.  Delicious, with hints of molasses and corn bread.  Very simple modification of the no-knead bread recipe. Cream puffs, pre-filling Cream puffs again. And a not-so flattering picture of the finished product….  |  READ »

Back in the saddle

Actually not really, since we’ve gotten nearly a foot of snow in the last 2 days.  I don’t know where to start since I’ve abandoned this blog for nearly 4 months, so here’s…  |  READ »

After the Granogue/Wissahickon weekend, I spent a few more days at the farm before heading down to Louisville for the next two rounds of the USGP.  Louisville is always a fun race, and…  |  READ »

Last Minute ‘Cross

After some good time at home (literally hardly leaving the house for several days due to arctic conditions in Fort Collins last weekend) I started to get a little antsy.  I decided at…  |  READ »

I love pumpkin pie.  And it seems like a waste that people only make it during the holidays.  This recipe calls for twice the amount of pumpkin that other recipes call for, and…  |  READ »

Cross Racing Begins

I did have a long drawn out blow-by-blow of my races in Vegas and Madison, but since that is already almost a month ago, it seems a little late… No matter how you…  |  READ »

When your body says “No”

It’s been a tough past few weeks. Here’s a quick run-down: I was really excited about the race at Worlds, so it was pretty disappointing to feel as bad as I did on…  |  READ »
