Happy 4th of July! Today feels like the perfect day to share this news with you: our next cookbook, American Classics Reinvented, is available for preorder. It could be in your hands September 1st! (The link to buy it is in my profile.) This is a crowd-sourced cookbook, created for you. American com
On my early morning walk, before it grows too hot, I pass so many smiling neighbors and a reminder of the day.
I'm here. All is well now. How are you?
Desmond approves of peach season.
Greens + mushrooms + color. Add egg.
Tayberries are one of the gifts of a Pacific Northwest summer.
Before it grew too hot, Danny smoked and poached a few sides of salmon. Thank goodness for this salmon salad with arugula and tomato vinaigrette on a hot day like this.
Add an egg fried in olive oil on top of a quick ratatouille with sausage and it's time for breakfast on the porch. Oh summer.
On a long walk this morning, I finished an interview with Mary Oliver on the podcast On Being. Oh, do listen to this interview. @kristatippett is marvelous. Mary Oliver is one my favorite beings in the world. About halfway through my long walk, I heard Mary Oliver read her four-part poem "The Fourth
Hey @seattlemet! Thanks for the great mention of our flour in your food lovers' issue.
For two years, this space has been our cooking studio. We wrote out next cookbook here. We got through our Kickstarter here. We brought Desmond here with us after he came home. For awhile, it was the right place for us. And then it wasn't. It took us a few months to realize we had to let go so we c
This morning, we had breakfast at that table. (See previous photo for story.)
Yesterday, the man who built the 23-foot table for our studio came over with a flatbed truck attached to a dump truck and 7 strong guys. (We're in the process of moving out of our studio, for various reasons. We're looking to build our own someday soon.) Trevor -- once one of my high school students
We're going to teach both of our children to push for justice for all people. Loving all humans is more important to me than any creed.
As soon as summer mornings are warm, I go right back to salads for breakfast. Especially this morning, when a neighbor brought bags of peppery arugula and basil from her garden. Yes, please.
I love smoothie recipes but I rarely follow them. That means buying those fruits and vegetables in advance, just for that recipe. Instead I like the "use the nubs of the fruits and vegetables we have left in the refrigerator" smoothies we have been making lately. I love @terrywalterscooks new cookbo
I love my people. Hearing that I needed some light yet intelligent reading this week while I recover, friends dropped by or sent me these books. My friends, this is the best present.
Roasted broccoli with olive oil, toasted nuts, lime juice, and pecorino. Thanks, @marcocanora.
A friend dropped off a flat of ripe red strawberries to our home, to help with my recovery. What a good man. I'm okay. Not great. Exhausted. I mean, flattened tired. But, it makes sense. I had a minor stroke. today I surrendered to it. Recovery takes time. And with time, good friends, and food like
