What is celeriac?

Last week, I posted that I was making carrot and celeriac soup. And no one commented! I can only assume it's because you haven't encountered much celeriac (rather than assume that no one read my post). Although I guess I could assume you don't like posts without pictures.

The maze is a giant, walk-on puzzle whose pathways form the image of a mule-drawn canal boat, the kind that once plied the waters of the nearby Delaware and Raritan (D...

The one where we meet.

So I’m back from my first week-long vacation since my honeymoon in 2007, stuffed with Maryland crabs, jonesing for margaritas (rocks. salt.), and covered with the most glorious tan that I’ve had since I was in my 20’s (which was yesterday, obviously).  Now that you know my priorities, we can be friends. Mary and I met in the spring of...
