The irony of summer is that the season that brings with it the year’s most amazing produce is also the most overscheduled. Not that I didn’t enjoy the bounty. Hello, Flamin’ Fury peaches layered with thick slices of fresh mozzarella and a dusting of pink Himalayan salt. But if I have been lax about sharing new recipes (and I have), it is because I have been busy celebrating the unions of some of my favorite couples, the grand entrance of Baby #3/Daughter #1 of a friend with excellent taste in names, and… the much anticipated arrival of my own niece, my sweet little Nugget. May this be the first of many metallurgic/food-related nicknames I give her!

I have a knack for making simple tasks complicated and impractical. When it occurs to me to bring in breakfast for the office, my mind immediately leaps to waiting in line at The Doughnut Vault , before I remember the many pastry shops that deliver. And don’t ask my mom about last year’s Thanksgiving turkey- the one I volunteered her to drive an hour to pick up, the turkey so large she had to secure it to her front seat with a seat belt. More recently, I offered to make dessert for a housewarming dinner at my friend’s new condo, so of course I broke out the cast iron skillet, in spite of the logistical difficulties of transporting it on two train rides.
