ABQ Weather or Not

More of the same - overcast and windy, and Valentine's Day is no exception.

So put on your thinking caps and get creative  about how to have a cozy celebration!






Three Sisters Kitchen celebrates and strengthens our city, one plate—and one new food business—at a time.

Beyond nourishing our bodies, food is about health, tradition, community, and opportunity.

Three Sisters Kitchen is a place for people to come together to eat, cook, learn, and build.

   So, if you're like me, you knew Bupkes about this until you read the blurb above. Here's more, from their website:


Three Sisters Kitchen emerged from community conversations hosted by the DowntownABQ MainStreet Initiative, the Downtown Albuquerque Growers’ Market, and their partners, from 2015-2017 with neighborhood residents, community-based organizations, farmers, healthcare and social service providers, and local business owners. You let us know that you wanted a welcoming space that celebrates and supports local food producers year-round, promotes a healthy community, and offers meaningful opportunities to engage in the local food system. Out of that vision, Three Sisters Kitchen was born.

Three Sisters Kitchen opened in 2017 to fulfill a need and to complement existing food and health programming in Albuquerque. As a discovery-based test kitchen, community classroom and local foods shop we support the incubation of new ideas and work towards our vision of a food-secure community with a vibrant culture of health and a deep commitment to food and economic justice.

  Great idea, good people, terrific support by local initiatives and organizations.

So what do you think? I say, let's pick a Wednesday night in the next few weeks and check this out!

The New York Times REVIEW



Using a fork, mix trout, labneh, crème fraîche, lemon juice, 3 Tbsp. chives, and 1 Tbsp. dill in a medium bowl until trout flakes into very small pieces.

Season with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired.

Just before serving, drizzle dip with oil and top with more chives, dill, and pepper.

Do Ahead: Dip can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill.

NOTES: I buy my Smoked Trout at Trader Joe's and while Greek Yoghurt is fine, you can get labneh at the Palestinian market on the NW corner of San Pedro and Montgomery. (Labneh is also great on a cracker with a halved cherry tomato and a drizzle of olive oil.)
