heirloom tomato tartare

Okay the longer I put off posting this the less seasonal/applicable it will be. Greta and I have been hitting up the farmer’s market every Sunday morning to scoop some goodies for the week. Including an iced coffee from Zeke’s for me and fruits/veggies for Greta. This child still doesn’t have any teeth but she…

Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben. I didn’t like this nearly as much as Run Away, but there was a massive twist at the end that made it worth finishing. I’ll definitely keep working my way through his books. Six Years by Harlan Coben. Okay fine I spoke too soon this one was REALLY BAD I’m…

broccolini w/ basil breadcrumbs

We’re having some homeowner problems that are precisely the worst degree, which is that they are bad enough that we have to do something, but not so bad that we’ve already done something. And thus I’ve had holes in the ceiling in two different rooms for longer than I care to admit. We finally went…

chocolate coconut cake

Yesterday was my birthday! It was pretty uneventful as far as birthdays go, although I think 31-39 are probably not considered special. Sheila did send me a Hedley & Bennett apron (!!) and I immediately commissioned the GS to hang a hook for it so that I can display it proudly at all times even…

brown butter blueberry bread pudding

Well, it’s been a minute. I’ve had a lot on my metaphorical plate, and a lot of unoriginal food on my literal plate. I made this baked feta last weekend, but this is the only photo I took. And I know you all come here for my impressive iPhone photography. I also made an incredible…

tiramisu sponge cake

This is definitely the ugliest cake I’ve ever made so bear with me. It tastes good. The GS’ birthday was a week ago and my sous chef Greta and I balled out. He requested eggplant parmesan so we made that with homemade spaghetti and a spicy tomato sauce, plus this sponge cake. I had seen…

Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld. This is a fictional take on what Hillary’s life might have looked like if she hadn’t married Bill. It’s important to note that Curtis is a woman prior to reading. I found it pretty entertaining and thought-provoking. It’s not as good as Eligible, but nothing is.   Pretty Things by Janelle Brown. This…

sweet & spicy tofu sandwich

Hello! There’s obviously a lot going on in the world right now and while I make a general point of avoiding politics here I do feel compelled to say that I stand with Black Lives Matter, with the LGBTQ community, with the trans community. I’m doing a lot of listening and learning and thinking about…

tomato corn cheddar pie

On Friday I went to the grocery store for the first time in 3 months and it felt as though a part of my soul has been restored. Bless the Instacart shoppers for taking care of us, and of course our local spots that we’ve been able to hit for small things. But it’s been…

memorial day migas

Actually, I made this on Mother’s Day. Which I now realize was two weeks ago but hopefully you can make it tomorrow. We had gorgeous weather here so we took a long walk, and the GS made a surprise dinner. His original plan was to get me flours and flowers for my first Mother’s Day…
