When I have a ton of fresh tomatoes on hand, this is one of my favorite things to make.
Packed with fiber and not too sweet. The perfect way to start the day!
If I ever run out of stuff to put in muffins, or combinations of stuff to put in muffins, I will be very sad. It’s officially “the holidays” now. We’re busy party-planning, present shopping and getting ready for travel. Basically it’s an entire month packed with my favorite things. And this year it will include […]
So, forgive me, but I am one of the pumpkin people. I love pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin cookies. I love everything pumpkin. I even like the latte everybody loves to hate, though they are so sweet that I usually only get one per year. I could eat pumpkin every day in various forms. It’s […]
Hooray for the weekend. Everything feels so much less crazy than it did even a couple of days ago. Dave and I worked cooking, styling and photographing on a shoot for a client this weekend, but we also saw Gone Girl (it’s an excellent adaptation of the book, but be forewarned that all of the […]

What a gorgeous day it has been in Portland. It was 74 today! And sunny! My little plants are all popping up. The lettuce is in the ground outside and I swear it grew visibly larger in the last 24 hours with all that sun. The rhubarb is very nearly ready for go time (HELLO, […]
When it comes to breakfasts that I love the most, pound cake and quick bread are near the top. The tough thing about making a pound cake or a quick bread on the weekends is that they take an hour to bake. Which means that you actually have to get out of bed at a […]
