Nibbles: The Abbey's Poached Pear Salad at Penny Lane Pub

 September 10, 2014

Recently four friends and I went to The Kate in Old Saybrook to see the Hit Men, four men around my age who sang songs popular in the '70s and '80s. It was maybe the best concert I have seen in years (definitely as good as the ones I actually heard back in the...

Nibbles: Fajitas at Tequila's in Old Saybrook

 August 27, 2014

By the time I got a chance to have huevos rancheros at Tequila's in Old Saybrook, they were no longer doing breakfast at the restaurant. But, sad as I was, it was 1:30 in the afternoon and I was ravenous. The menu looked very, very good, and I ordered Lola's...

Nibbles: The Lobster Roll at Rustic Cafe

 August 20, 2014

Usually when I get hungry in the Old Lyme/East Lyme area, I get a terrific burger at the Rustic Café.

Nibbles: Sherry Vinegar

 August 6, 2014

I go through phases when it comes to cooking. I stopped buying bottled dressing 30 years ago. Sophisticate that I was, I thought making Good Seasons mix was "making my own," but it tasted the same every time. Duh. So I made blue cheese dressing, then Caesar...

Nibbles: Mussels at Red36 in Mystic

 July 23, 2014

I'm not here to tell you about a terrific restaurant, Red36, in Mystic. The restaurant is owned and run by Angela Kanabis, the daughter of superb restaurateur Carol Kanabis of Restaurant Bravo Bravo and Olio. Every lesson and nuance Carol taught Angela was...

Nibbles: Shrimp Cocktail at Tony D's

 June 18, 2014

It took two of us to convince my friend Richard to go out for dinner at Tony D's. I chose that iconic New London restaurant because Tony D's son, the chef, does a terrific chicken Ornella. Richard likes chicken, but he doesn't like to go out for dinner.

Nibbles: Blue Hound Cookery

 June 4, 2014

How did it take me so long to park my body at the Blue Hound Cookery in Ivoryton? The Day's Marisa Nadolny had written about this comfortable place with Southern roots serving food that might make us want to sing "Dixie." Linda Guica, who writes for the...

Nibbles: Potato Pizza at Illiano's

 May 14, 2014

I cook a lot, as you know. But sometimes time quandaries appear. And sometimes I just want to eat something as soon as possible, especially on a Sunday, when I've been too busy to even read The New York Times.

Enjoy Storytime Inside Connecticut’s Oldest House

 May 7, 2014

Sometimes I see a recipe for gorgeous cake and think: I have everything in the pantry to make that cake, so I might just do that. But I don't, because I might eat the whole thing in a few days.

Nibbles: Old Saybrook's Alforno

 April 9, 2014

There are few restaurants to which I feel comfortable taking a party of 10, knowing everyone will have a wonderful dinner. Some restaurants, especially fine-dining ones in New York City, won't even take reservations for a crowd of more than eight. So when I had...

Nibbles: Waterford's Caffe NV

 March 26, 2014

In addition to watching my carbs, I've become a member of Planet Fitness in the hope that, within a few months, my knees will no longer hurt and I'll be able to pick myself up from the floor without resting on a hassock.One...
