In the Kitchen: An at-home birthday dinner


My mom celebrated a landmark birthday this week and requested a quiet dinner at home. With Mike in Chicago, the full weight of eating well fell on my shoulders. My dad volunteered to ace the salmon as always. Late September is a bit tricky. Do you want to savor the lightness and color of summer or are you ready to dive into the coziness of fall? Meh. Split the difference.


(L) spinach, raspberries, flaked goat cheese, chopped almonds
(R) Fingerling potatoes seared in a cast iron with butter, olive oil and dill

Happy birthday, Mom!


Grill master.
