stronger than we think

I have not felt all that strong this week. Getting out of bed has been a challenge, and the days have moved along rather tediously. Simple things like washing the dishes after dinner and deciding what I’ll eat for lunch tomorrow have seemed so difficult. I’m sure you know this feeling. Sometimes I find myself wishing […]

I just received the latest issue of Remedy Quarterly, a truly lovely food magazine created by Kelly Carámbula, who also happens to be a blogger I greatly admire. I have loved this magazine for awhile now, with the inspiration it has taken from old […]

charming in its own way

I love this salad. I really, really do. But standing in the middle of my kitchen this past Sunday afternoon, the unfinished salad in a big bowl on the counter, I was deeply frustrated with the purple and green specks of cabbage and little bits of carrot and deep green shards of kale it had […]

I had long dreamed of owning Rose Carrarini’s Breakfast, Lunch, Tea. It began when some of my favorite food bloggers started posting recipes from it that were right up my alley (maple syrup scones? swoon! date and oat slices? yes, please!). The recipes were simple, made with natural ingredients and sweet-but-not-too-sweet. And the cookbook’s British author […]

on love, etc.

Opinions regarding Valentine’s Day fall along quite a wide spectrum. I understand that.
