Wonderfully Circuitous | Nantucket Cranberry Pie

Eight years ago, I made Nantucket Cranberry Pie for the first time. I wrote about it on my old blog, which I kept for three years, beginning right after college and leading up until when I started this one. It’s a wonderful record of who I was then, in the same way that reading this […]

Who You Are In That Place | Fresh Ginger Cake

I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of some coziness. It’s not only because the regular afternoon temperatures in Chicago have reached the approximate deep-winter lows for Oakland, though that’s part of it. There’s also the fact that California is burning, and my heart aches for my old home—disoriented, not relieved, to not […]

Easy Roasted Eggplant Dip

It’s a lovely time of year, this moment where summer meets fall. The days toggle from hot to cool, there’s a new crisp wind on certain mornings, the markets burst with the last of summer’s bounty and the beginning of autumn’s. It’s hard to decide whether to dedicate the space and weight in the market […]

Six Things To Do with a Tray of Roasted Sweet Potatoes

It’s old hat to say that the year has flown, but—it really did this time! Finding such truisms flying out of my mouth is a real sign of adulthood, I think. But I’ll […]

Shouts & Whispers | Roast Eggplants with Goat Cheese & Sumac

This is the time of year when I crave the signs of autumn. I’ve written about the transition into fall ad nauseam, so I will try not to go on about it again. But it’s this Midwestern internal clock that sends me out in search of apple stands and cider mills, trees in shades of […]
