    Lauren Heaton

    Ever since I was old enough to understand the news that was always blaring on TV at our house, all I knew about Ethiopia was that a lot of hungry people lived there. When I learned it was the source of the Nile, I thought it couldn’t be all bad.

    Steaming little-neck clams might be easy in that there aren’t many steps involved, but there’s a real science to it, that requires you pay a lot of attention the whole time. You can’t just toss them in a pot with some water and leave them to cook, and turn your back and chop some veggies or whatever.

    I’ve had a long-term romance with Indian food. It stems from a time not so long ago that I developed a heart condition and was hospitalized at the University of Cincinnati with strict dietary restrictions on salt intake.

    Lauren Heaton

    I’ve always known I would never be a real chef, simply because I move too cotton pickin’ slow in the kitchen. I’m messy as all get out too. But with me the mess is a symptom of the confusion I often feel when I’m trying to follow a recipe.

    As you may know from my previous post or from seeing me then not seeing me then seeing me again on the streets, I recently returned from my yearly trip to Ireland. Here is an illustrated, partial reflection…

  • BLOG — The ranch dressing challenge

    Lauren Heaton

    I’m not a mom, but I am a step-mom. I’m a step-mom who likes to cook all manner of new and surprising dishes and try them out on my captive consumers. Well, actually they wouldn’t eat it any other way.

    When Kirk and I got engaged in 2006 we went to l’Auberge to celebrate. Dayton’s renowned French restaurant had just remodeled in nouveau Art Deco with bold colors, soft high-back chairs and theatrical salt and pepper shakers.
