Compounded

My friend Lillian came up with this recipe for the much-lamented Gourmet┬áback in 2007, but I only just discovered it a few weeks ago, which means that there were seven long years that I missed out on this. Continue reading ‘Compounded’

Gimpy McGimperson is out of commission, so I'm on protein duty. Upping my searing game. Alex got shoulder surgery, and his office sent us steaks from Eataly. Seems like an okay trade. I love coming home to good mail.
