Sometimes I’m only curious about the cooking technique or about the ingredients used — but there was one occasion when I was desperate to know everything. Oddly enough, this incident […]
I’m having a Hatch Chile Festival. In my kitchen. (This is not to be confused with the enormous Hatch Chile festival going on Labor Day Weekend in New Mexico. My kitchen is a bit smaller than New Mexico.) Truth is, all of my beautiful Hatch chiles from Melissa’s have indeed been contributing to a festive […]
