Matt, Charlie and Bess joined Robin and I for dinner tonight.  It was so fun to spend time with them all.  We were amazed by Bess’s baby naming abilities; she really should be a consultant in this arena. We were also blown away by these pizzas.  The best flavors I have had on pizza in a long time.  To be made again FOR SURE!

Onion Pizza with Ricotta and Chard



Taylor and Maggie came over to join us for dinner with Erin and her friend Laura.  Take out on Tuesday.  They brought this very cool b-day gift for me.  Serious recipes.  I just need to find serious time.  That is what having a baby is for, right?


My parents were Moosewooding it up in NYC tonight and it looks good!  Currently this recipe is off limits in the Knavis Knitchen.  Mavis says no cooked tomatoes.

From my mom, “This was really yum, dead simple, and nice with asparagus on the side. We had nice conversation during dinner and did not read the paper in the photo. A simple red wine, fresh oranges for dessert followed by a cookie. Bon appétit!”

For the record, we discussed the injustices of the Sonoma vs. San Diego State seedings at SW regionals for our “nice conversation.”  It does matter, just so you know!

Spinach Polenta with Tomatoes

My parents made a wonderful contribution to the Knitchen for my birthday last week, a Nespresso Pixie.  It has been a wonderful treat for weekend mornings.

As long as I can kick the cold I am fighting I have grand plans for all new recipes in the Knitchen this week.

Sunday: Heather’s Quinoa from 101 Cookbooks

Monday: Salmon Bulgogi from Bon Appetit

Tuesday: A crew is coming over to see Erin who is in town.  Take out pizza.

Wednesday: Despite amazing heat yesterday, it looks like it is going to be raining by Wednesday.  The plan is to make a new chilli for a cold, rainy night.  Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

Thursday: Bess and Charlie are coming over for dinner and I am going to try two new pizzas: Smoked Mozarella Pizza with Radicchio and Onion Jam and  Onion Pizza with Ricotta and Chard
