Why I Cook


For me, this post will either serve as a death rattle - a final post in an attempt to keep this blog alive - or a revitalization.  I hope it's the latter.  I haven't posted since February, but in the nearly 10 months it's been since my last post, I never stopped cooking.  On the other hand, posting my recipes obviously didn't receive the same attention.

Caesar Salad Bites in Parmesan Cups

I started thinking about Caesar salad the other day.  I love a good Caesar, although it's remarkable how frequently a Caesar is relegated to a shadow of its ideal self: Less than crisp romaine lettuce, drowning in heavy bottled dressing and topped with a Parmesan-like cheese that more closely resembles the stuff in a green can rather than the shavings off of a block.  And the croutons!  It's almost too much to bear.
