Weekend Reprieve

img_6463{This lobster ravioli from Ladurée in Soho was absolutely delicious, and I feel compelled to recreate this dish over a weekend from the kitchens of Heath}

Most weekends, I enjoy the ritual of walking in early evening to clear my thoughts after a hectic week. Work can be overwhelming when managing a department of opinionated librarians; attending meetings every few hours, which usually end up being facilitated by me, all while keeping up with text and emails

Scheduling time into a busy day to relax seems counter-intuitive with so much to do from 7-4, which is why it is imperative that I head back to Heath each evening in order to recharge.

I look forward to cooking each night….. yes, I really do; the chopping, choosing herbs to help flavor various meals and sautéing. Somehow the pressures of the day melt away and unwinding in the kitchen with a glass of wine with all four burners “bubbling and squeaking” is definitely the best way to start the evening and most definitely the weekend!!! 

Cook and relax stylishly,
K

Flavors of Winter

This weekend democracy was in full force throughout the District of Columbia with the Women’s March and an Inauguration. Crowds everywhere, in and around the metropolitan area caused several family members to bolt to NYC only to be besieged by women marching. But, seeing this mass convergence of women worldwide was a fabulous site to witness.

And, as much as I enjoy being civic minded, there was no way I would have been able to participate in this process due to the size of the crowds. So, I stayed at Heath to watch the events on TV and test recipes.
