Vintage Bad Home Cooking

Hello Kitty.

I’m told I should start blogging every day, in order to build an audience.

Who the hell’s got time for that? I work too much these days. And school’s almost out for the nits, so there goes my serenity and focus too. Where’d I put my chauffeur’s cap?

But I have to post something, so I thought whoever is still out there reading this blog would enjoy some of my favorite BHC posts of years’ past. I’ve been blogging on Bad Home Cooking for more than five years now; there’s some deep content, a lot of it quite good, if I do say so myself. And all of it wholly-unappreciated.

Pour yourselves a bowl of Cheerios and dig into these:

One of the all time traffic greats for me? All about food porn and flamenco guitarists.

Me and the Herb Lady. Because summer is almost here and I’m gonna try growing my own…

Stuff the kids won’t eat is a favorite category filled with posts. But Enemy Number one remains: Rice with Chicken Crap.

Nothing in common but food. Part of my Kitchen Goddess series.

And finally, when you want to drink but nobody can know about it, talk to Aunt Vere, a nice little old lady in Minnesota.

Like these? There’s LOTS more where they came from.

As always, stay tuned…

Down under, it’s winter and persimmons are in season and I buy and eat them because not only do I love them but one of my favorite memories of winter in Berkeley are those orange persimmons hanging on bare branches against blue skies. We are also eating soups and pumpkin stews and wearing layers and layers of clothing. Summer solstice for you all equals winter solstice down here and at 6pm it feels like the middle of the night.

Nothing in common but food is a great piece, Julies. Do you still keep in touch with her?

Not at all. Haven’t seen or spoken to her in more than 20 years. But every time I cook with chopsticks I think about her. Funny who ends up influencing you. Stay warm in OZ, Jules!

are you sick of my comments yet? Hey, I’m trying to help your SEO ratings. I just bookmarked this page for reading tomorrow. Thanks – and where have you been all my life? I love me a good food blog.

No! Reply away please! Nobody does anymore for some reason (it’s all on Facebook?) and it makes me feel like nobody is reading (just humor me, ok?) And I love me a happy blog reader…
