Needed this Triple-S soothing meal-After spending the most wonderful weekend with my family in CA-celebrating the birthday of my youngest, Jessie- (who is expecting a baby girl this July) and after being scrumptiously glued my to my baby granddaughter Audra Rose -and after being able to cook for all of my kids under one roof (Jessie and Brian’s roof)- and then coming home and going “kaplunk” emotionally… because saying “goodbye” is extremely hard for me. ( I was one of those kids that clung to their mothers leg at the bus stop -school, camp, it didn’t matter…) So, yes, I needed this self-nurturing meal. Potatoes are, of course, on top- poached till tender, then drained and seasoned with good olive oil, salt and pepper (can add chopped herbs-rosemary, thyme)- then seared in a nonstick skillet till crisp and gorgeous. Hanger steak- pan-grilled (too tired today to cook with wood) and sautéed corn with chopped onions, thinly sliced Serrano peppers, sliced mushrooms and chopped cilantro. Feeling more inflated- but miss my children being all in one place. Part of the process of growing up, I guess-for all of us

I can’t believe my youngest child, Jessie @jessiedelowe is thirty today. Wow! Where did the time go?? My last child has me remembering things my memory misplaced with the busyness of life with three young children-Jessie’s baby teeth were like little white pearls that, when they started to make way for her grown up teeth, I remember feeling a first-time ache- a saying goodbye of sorts. Little moments that marked the end of one chapter and led way to the beginning of others, as a mom. Jessie, I love you with all of my heart. Although last year was so spectacular-marrying the man of your dreams- @briandelowe I feel sure that this year will be the best one yet- Savor all of the little moments in every minute of this magical time- Your sweet baby girl is on her way-your forever source of magnificent light- just like you. Happy Birthday, my love. Mama

Since I was little, creamy mashed potatoes have always made me feel safe and soothed. I think I ate a truck load while pregnant- Can you “feel” how soft, swooping and gorgeous the texture is just by the way the masher sinks, then almost begrudgingly emerges? Just heaven. Boiled peeled creamer potatoes, mashed with hot milk, butter, a good swig of sour cream and kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. (A shot a cayenne never hurts…) Can add sautéed scallions-amazing-crisp bacon, shredded cheese- the list goes on…) To make these even better (more diverse, texturally) I spread this mixture in a buttered oven-proof dish (can sprinkle cheese on the buttered surface) and then, to make things look finished, I use a decorating comb on top-and then gently tidy the sides. This gets baked- 375f covered for 35-45 ( till piping hot)- then uncovered until top is golden and crisp

Complete with her party hat (it’s not her birthday) and beads (under her bib), Audra felt it imperative to dip her grissini in yogurt at lunch. Who am I to argue??

When grilling chops- regardless of whether on the stove or on the grill, after searing on both sides and the internal doneness is to your liking, it’s important to turn them, fat side down, so they can get golden, crisp and incredibly yummy… just like this. Serve hot! 🙌 (When inside, use your exhaust fan- yes, it’s worth it
