On Sunday I posted this picture: We were headed to the Food Truck Festival and I was beside myself. Stout, as you can see, was already tired. But like I was saying, Food. Trucks. I love them. We were prepared to wait in a long traffic line. Jeremy brought snacks to hold us over. We […]

Jeremy and I stay in for Valentine’s dinner. We turn Valentine’s Day into an opportunity to create a most beautiful meal. We buy our favorite vino. Munch on cheese and fruit for a few hours. Move into dinner casually… It is filled with this shiny beauty of a thing called space. Deep breaths. Long conversations. […]

This past weekend for me was made of citrus. Sometimes life is crazy and confusing and filled to the brim with things I can’t quite grasp onto. So I reach out and grab onto an orange.

Walking around town touting that I have the best burger recipe seems a little overbearing, doesn’t it?! And yet here I am. Telling the whole internet that this, this right here, is the best burger recipe. So good, the bun gets in the way. Don’t get me wrong. I love a bun just as much […]

I knew I made it into some kind of wonderland when I made the best pot roast recipe. But first – When I was a child, walking from the bus stop to home, suffering the weight of my back pack, bearing all its knowledge in hardbound books, I would find reprieve. Relax. The school day […]

Let’s talk about soup today! Let’s talk about creamy, velvety homemade cream of mushroom soup. This soup is a favorite enjoyed alone and as I started to learn to cook I also realized that my favorite recipes called for a can of cream of mushroom soup. My favorite casseroles. My favorite stews and pot roasts. […]

I’ve been holding onto this one. Waiting for that beautiful wild time when buds are forming, pregnant with such nostalgic hope. My pupil takes in unformed petals. In this bud I see me, shedding layers, stepping outside barefoot on dewy grass. Take breaths. My hand finds my chest. I think my heart feels dewy too. […]
