I’ve been grilling up a storm but far and away my, and my family’s favorite grilled meal, is pizza. Yes you can make pizza on a grill! No it won’t fall through the grates! High heat from below gives the crust a solid crunch and a chewy center. A bit of char adds smokey notes.
Come feast on food themed memoir, fiction and poetry on June 6th at Johnny Cupcakes during Boston’s third Lit Crawl. With readings by Grace Talusan, Dariel Suarez, Artress White, Crystal King, and Michelle-Marie Gilkeson and FREE SNACKS it will be an unforgettable evening!

Writers are secretive creatures. We congregate covertly in coffee shops and library cubicles, furiously tapping at our keyboards, or scratching in notebooks, working on what we are sure, in the frenzied moment, will be the next great American novel…
Eating well takes time and effort. As much as I love spending time in the kitchen, sometimes I just want to heat and eat. When it’s cold, I want something warm, nutritious, and easy. Soups and stews fit the bill perfectly. It takes nearly the same amount of time to make a large batch as a small one. By filling a soup pan to the brim with soup I have several pints to stock in the freezer.
When the weather gets chilly and I get hungry I crave soup. Thick, warm, satisfying goodness that goes down easy and warms every nook and cranny. Pureed vegetable soups are my favorite. A hearty spoonful of creamy vegetables that slip and slide their way down is like a cozy blanket for my belly.
When I’m faced with a dearth of ingredients and hungry mouths, sometimes I order a pizza but more often than not, I rise to the challenge. I’ve been cooking all my life so I can always muster up something edible, but sometimes I hit on combinations that become family favorites.
Sandwiches, the original fast food, are easy, packable, and a summer staple, but are best when freshly made. After a few hours, bread goes soggy, cheese dissolves into tomato, and lettuce turns squishy. All these things that make most sandwiches unappetizing, are exactly what makes pan bagnat delicious and the perfect take-along meal.
