Alexandra: Oh, hell yes.
Yeah, I know they aren’t really in season yet but you can now find decent tomatoes at your local farmer’s market. So why not think of this summer beauty. Thanks again to Alexandra for the inspiration.
Drop Dead, Yes: Alexandra gives buttermilk blueberry breakfast cake.
Alexandra does English Muffins with Strawberry Jam. Course she makes them both from scratch cause that’s how she rolls.
Okay, you can’t get a good tomato yet but still, I love Alexandra’s simple, most delicious sandwich.
Somewhere along the line I lost a taste for roasted peppers. Same with sundried tomatoes and even balsamic vinegar. Well, I didn’t cool on the balsamic for long (I was just tired of it being overused) while I’ve never regained a desire to eat sundried tomatoes. But roasted peppers really are delicious and it was the long break away from them that made me realize how much I enjoy them.
Who better than the Goddess Alexandra to bring it all back home?
Sure, this is out-of-season but hell, you can still find a decent eggplant around. And damn, if this just wouldn’t hit the spot right about now. Alexandra Cooks does Chez Panisse’s Eggplant, caramelized onion and tomato pasta.
Man, this woman Alexandra is my hero. How’s bout brown butter brownies with sea salt? Hell, yes, please.
