PACKED LUNCH MONDAYS: SALAD ROUND-UP

Clockwise from the top: autumnal roast fig salad | roast pepper and feta salad | quince, radicchio, and citrus salad | green lentil and kale salad Hi lovelies! I had a fun post about packed lunches for you all set up, and then my camera died. As in, died died. It’s in for repair at the moment, so fingers crossed it makes it. I’ll be sharing that post with you next Monday instead, so for now here’s a round-up of some salads that I’ve previously posted reci ... Read More

HONEY-BAKED CHEESE WITH FIGS, WALNUTS, AND THYME

I love weekends. Even though I don’t work a regular 9-5 job anymore, I still find weekends sort of magical. I think it’s because there’s just so much possibility; there’s more you can do for yourself, and everything is more relaxed—no early morning rush out the door, no anxiously checking e-mails, no dreading that upwards-creeping number in your inbox. Instead there’s farmer’s markets, visits to the florist, and laid-back brunches with family and friends. Weekend evenings are my favorites—that’s when I’ ... Read More

PEPERONATA {ITALIAN PEPPER STEW}

So after last Friday’s major haul from the Farmer’s Market, I spent the better part of the week cooking and canning and freezing things for the summer. When the weather gets hot, I start to lose my appetite, so it’s nice to be able to have something ready on hand when I don’t feel much like eating or cooking. I also plan to give away jars of food to some of my friends who are moms because (1) mother’s day is coming up, and (2) being a mom really IS the hardest job in the world! Oh my gosh, you guys—one of my be ... Read More

FARMER’S MARKET: MY LAST HAUL OF THE SEASON + TIPS TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR TRIP

Today I went to the last farmer’s market of the season. It’s getting too hot, so it’ll be on hiatus until October, when the weather cools down. I was sad to say goodbye to what’s become my Friday morning ritual, but for one last time this Spring, I bought some stunning produce which I’m excited to be cooking with this week. I didn’t take my camera with me today because I really wanted to enjoy shopping and talking to the farmers and not worry about getting shots, but I’ve put together a little collage of ph ...
