Serbian Pita Pizza
Following the culinary orders of an inspired freight elevator operator we beelined it to a grocery store in deepest brightest Queens in search of Ajvar - a Serbian red pepper extravaganza that makes you want to travel the world. Toasted pita bread was our sauce vehicle of choice - topped off with feta, olives, chilis and dried oregano. We are calling it pizza just so you get the idea but wow - it is a whole other level.
Culinary inspiration comes in curious forms and can be used to justify many a beautiful ceramic acquisition.Read More

Cocktail Sour Cherries
- 3 pounds sour cherries
- 1 1/2 cups super fine sugar
- 3 cups brandy
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
- 8 cardamom pods
Wash and dry cherries on a kitchen towel. Combine sugar, brandy, cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom in a large bowl and stir until sugar dissolves. Add cherries and let stand about 1 hour. Use a slotted spoon to lift cherries out of liquid and transfer to a clean quart size Mason jar. Pour liquid into jar - making sure cherries are completely submerged. Seal jar with lid and store in a cool dark place for one month. Give jar a shake every few days. When the cherries turn a deep dark red they are ready. Send out party invites.

Only in beautiful Maine can one comb the beach and forage the woods all before breakfast. Found just a handful of these beauties! We brushed them free of grit, sautéed them in plenty of butter, salt, pepper and a shower of fresh thyme and ate them before anyone knew we were home.
Completely forgot about this beloved combo.Read More
