A little, organic bird may have told you that we have expanded Family Dinner into Portland, Maine. (And if you didn't know, now you know.) One of the very best parts of working in a new community is meeting the folks who make up its fabric. We met Lee and Bryna from LB Kitchen early in our Portland wanderings and fell in love immediately.

Lee and Bryna are life and business partners as owners of LB Kitchen in Portland.  Their approach to food is clean and creative, personal and passionate.  I try--and woefully fail--to keep my fan-girling under wraps in their presence and I essentially begged them to cook for our Massachusetts shares this week. (So much for keeping your cool.) They offered up a local and organic Sweet Chili Tofu for the Vegetarians and a beet hummus for the whole and double shares.  There is so much more we are looking to do with them. Here's a bit more about them so you can fall in love, too:

"Let's be honest, we are not those kind of people who eat to live. We live to eat, all day and everyday. We wake up thinking about food we dreamed about. We spend our days and our nights swirling around in our kitchens creating, tasting, laughing, loving, and sharing. To us, food is life, love, medicin,e and community. Our mission at LB Kitchen is to tell you stories through our food; where it came from, why we love it, why we chose it, why it tastes and makes you feel so good. We believe that food is fun and functional. Welcome to our kitchen."
We are so excited to bring their kitchen to you and hope you love it. Follow along @lbkitchenportlandme.

(from Joe)

Caesar Salad - Serious Eat's "The Best" recipes tend to be pretty maximalist, but check this out and you'll see how easy (and incredibly tasty) making your own caesar dressing is. And don't be afraid of the anchovies. I cram them 'cuz I love the taste, but you can skimp and still get what they've got to give without even a hint of fishiness.

Homemade Pizza - We provide the dough from our buds at Slab as your pizza pallet along with some easy choices for toppings. Skip to the shaping and baking portion here to get you to the delicious finish line. And unless you're a serious glutton for ricotta, you'll have some left over for...

Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes - Ummm... yes, please.

Steamed Pollock and Bok Choy - This is super easy and tasty (not to mention healthy). Great way to stretch out ingredients.

Steak and Eggs Hash - If for some reason you've got some leftovers from your steak dinner, this is a nice lil' breakfast that'll take care of them.
