Zucchini Oat Bread

Zucchini Oat Bread

Do you know people who consider zucchini bread to be almost as good as eating the vegetable itself? I do. I know people that use this sweet bread as a way to disguise zucchini so their kids will eat it. That’s all ridiculous. Let’s just call zucchini bread what it is: cake. Zucchini bread of course […]

Miso Sweet Corn Soup

Miso Sweet Corn Soup

Maybe it’s because my garden’s tomato harvest hasn’t yet begun to overwhelm me or maybe it’s my tendency to hoard food for winter, but when I saw the recipe in Bon Appetit for this soup, my first thought was, “I need to make big batches for the freezer!” My urgency to make this miso sweet […]

Cherry Browned Butter Bars

Cherry Browned Butter Bars

Spring and summer bring a barrage of fleeting treats after long winters of eating mostly root vegetables and whatever I was able to squirrel away in my freezer or pantry from the previous summer. First, I eagerly wait for asparagus, then that magic time when asparagus and morels overlap for about two weeks, then it’s […]

Your Ideal Life and the Big Picture

Your Ideal Life and the Big Picture

This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for months. I’ve had the ideas swirling around inside and I’ve been putting words to those ideas while I work, walk the dog, do the dishes, work in the garden, cut flowers, and wash my hair. I’m sure none of it will come out as eloquently as I’ve […]

The Perfect Lawn and Why You Should Ditch It

The Perfect Lawn and Why You Should Ditch It

Walking Lucy the other day was an exercise in patience at a time when I had little. I was on the first week of my new job where I am very fortunate to work right at home. During my lunch break, I wanted to enjoy at least some outdoor time with my girl, but I […]

Smoky Skillet Shrimp with White Beans

Smoky Skillet Shrimp with White Beans

Here’s something many people would not consider a gift: I left my corporate job back in December and have not worked full-time since. I admit, I have thoroughly enjoyed the gift of not having my days be super-structured and having more time at home. In the beginning, I had visions of finally this year having the […]

Cooking Oils Demystified

Cooking Oils Demystified

I get great blog post ideas from readers, and because I respect your privacy, I will not say exactly who gave me the idea for this post a long time ago. A friend whose name starts with “C” and rhymes with Marilyn and I have discussed cooking oils and we agree that it can be confusing. […]

Growing Potatoes in Containers

Growing Potatoes in Containers

The first time I tasted homegrown potatoes from our garden, I was hooked on their superior texture and flavor. Growing potatoes is great for many reasons, not least of which harvesting them is like unearthing treasure as a much-earned reward for your hard work in the garden. Most varieties come late in the summer, after months […]

Thai Beef Stir Fry with Garlic and Basil

Thai Beef Stir Fry with Garlic and Basil

If you come here often, you might notice that some of my favorite foods are comfort foods, recipes that are the food equivalent of a warm blanket, cozy sweater or your softest pillows. Especially in the cooler months, this is what I crave. Spring was just beginning to show itself here when, out of nowhere, […]

I’m a Beekeeping Beginner!

I’m a Beekeeping Beginner!

When I start a new project, I sometimes get overwhelmed by all of the things I don’t know. It happened years ago when I started growing food. I had only limited experience with it when we moved into our current home and made a big commitment to build a large fenced-in vegetable garden complete with […]
