My Summer Oasis & a Recipe for Peach and Cherry Polka-Dot Pie

I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m a summer person. If you know me at all, you know that I’m full of winter complaints and hot-weather musings; I love the feeling of sunshine on my skin, and grass {or, better yet, sand!} between my toes. The Monster is turning out to be a summer girl, […]


Late Summer Treats & a Recipe for Blackberry Fig Hand Scones

Oh my goodness you guys, where did the summer go? It feels like it was just yesterday that there was snow on the ground {well, it was snowing yesterday in the mountains}, and now, my calendar {the jerk} tells me that it’s almost October. Do you know what that means? It could snow any day […]


Eat In, Eat Out Summer Preview

The summer issue of Eat In, Eat Out is coming soon, and it’s going to be a gorgeous one. Here’s a quick preview of one of my contributions… you better be hungry. Check out the spring issue {Spring 2013} here.  


Late Summer & a Recipe for Boozy Peach Cobbler

A bag of soft, fuzzy peaches sat on my counter the other day, giving me the evil eye. Well, not the evil eye, I suppose {you know, the lack of eyes and evilness prevents such a thing}. It was more of an, “Eat me! Eat me!” look. I turned on the tap and gave one […]


That Day & a Recipe for Babcia’s Plum Cake {sort of}

It was six o’clock in the morning, and that day had finally arrived. I tried to be quiet, tried not to wake the others {silly me, I assumed I was the only one who couldn’t sleep}. I peeked out my bedroom door and found a couple of the other girls sitting in the kitchen, cradling […]


Ripe Ingredients & a Recipe for Peach and Avocado Salsa

There was a bowl of little yellow cherry tomatoes sitting on my counter the other day. They were deliciously ripe, softening slightly, but the skin held firm when I’d squeeze the little fruits between my fingers… it was time for them to be eaten. With the heat of the last week or so, I wasn’t […]


Summer Hoarding & a Recipe for Berry-Lemon Cobbler with Cornmeal Topping

I’ve been thinking lately {about the summer}; the belly-aches of eating too much fruit, the dehydration from basking in the sun for too long, the collective over-indulgence that could easily be described as “summer hoarding”. It’s not a new thing. Even when I was a kid, my family could see the signs. “Don’t eat too […]


Slack Summer Days & a Recipe for Berry Quinoa Hot Cereal

I’ve always had the idea that summertime is when people are the healthiest. You know, because an abundance of fresh, local produce is available; everyone seems to ride bikes instead of drive cars when possible; and because of all that time spent being active outdoors {at least that’s the case in my life}. But you […]


Those Days & a Recipe for Blackberry-Vanilla Cake

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the ones, where everything that should go right goes wrong; where the unexpected happens, and the dreaded occurs. It’s not that bad, really. It just seems like too much to handle at one time. Naturally, I take solace in baked goods. That phone call happens, telling you […]


Spectacular Storms & a Recipe for Fresh Bruschetta

It was mighty humid the other day. The air was so thick it I could practically feel the steamy substance flowing into my nose, and down into my lungs. The scent {oh, the scent!} of all the delightful plants permeated the condensed air; a natural perfume of lilacs, pine needles, and grass. The strangeness led […]
