Back in March of 2013, late in the evening, after Lucy had finally gone to sleep, Danny and I started making lists of possible recipes.
Late summer, late morning. Peaches are ripe. A soft bite of ripe peach might be my favorite bite of food all year.
For years now, I’ve been a little bit obsessed with bread. The funny thing is, I don’t really care much about eating it anymore.
The kitchens I like the best are rarely magazine ready. A few days ago, we spent the afternoon and evening at our friends’ beach cabin.
A moment on Saturday made all the work worth it. I stood behind a big kitchen island, talking about cake.
Our Lucy turned seven last week. For months, she has been planning and scheming, talking about menu items and activities she wanted to share.
“The cow is queen.” I don’t know how many times I heard that sentence the day I visited the Werkhoven family dairy farm in Monroe.
Would you like some warm, soft pretzels? They’re especially good dipped in strong mustard. Gluten-free awareness is far more ubiquitous now than it was ten years ago.
Thank you to Lean on Lamb for sponsoring this recipe and the Provencal lamb burger with red-wine-caramelized onions, goat cheese, and basil we shared with you in May.
Introducing organicgirl, producers of great organic dark greens, our latest sponsor. We eat a lot of dark greens around here.
Eight years ago yesterday, I married my favorite person in the world. I like him more now than I did that hot July day, when I thought my heart would burst with how much I love him.
I think often of Miss Edna Lewis. I still read the opening to every seasonal section in her book, The Taste of Country Cooking, as we are about to enter into the next phase of the year.
American Classics Reinvented is almost here! Pre-order now! This book full of American comfort food, gluten-free, will be published on September 1st, 2015.
A few weeks ago, our 6-year-old daughter went to a sleepover birthday party. She packed her bag full of books, her pajamas, and her Knuffle Bunny doll.
The other day, I asked Lucy how her summer is going. (Summer only technically began a few weeks ago, but in kid time, it feels like AGES since kindergarten ended.) Joyful as always, Lu threw her arms in the air and shouted, “GREAT!
It’s the 4th of July today. It seems fitting to celebrate this independence day with some cherry pie.
Remember when no one had heard of coconut oil? Those days are long gone, thankfully. We’re crazy about coconut oil around here.
A friend of mine who is fairly recently gluten-free saw this Love with Food box on our dining room table the other day.
I have a not-so-secret crush on Renee Erickson. It’s okay. Danny understands. It’s not a romantic crush — my heart rests in the heart of my darling husband who grounds me.
I’m kind of a goober, really. Even though I exult at the first unfurlings of spring green leaves, and feel deeply the fleeting beauty of the red leaves of fall, my body seems to feel it should always be summer.
