Jest Jammin’ (Strawberry Lime Jam)

Jest Jammin’ (Strawberry Lime Jam)

From my weekly trip to the Farmer’s Market I once again came home with way too many strawberries…I should have bought one basket but noooo..I went bonkers and bought a HALF FLAT of strawberries.  That’s 6 baskets of strawberries between the two of us. Which […]

Ottolenghi-Ototalyummi  Blueberry Lemon Almond Cake

Ottolenghi-Ototalyummi Blueberry Lemon Almond Cake

I am a big fan of Ottolenghi’s cookbooks, the photos are mouthwatering and every dish I have tried has been delicious.  My favorite book is Jerusalem, not just for the recipes and photos but it’s premise. Two men who grew up in opposite ends of […]

Girls Just Wanna Have Pie (Blueberry Hand Pies)

Girls Just Wanna Have Pie (Blueberry Hand Pies)

I am a pie kind of gal.  I have been known to go in search of pie at every opportunity-family vacations, weekend jaunts, regattas, anytime, anywhere. I am talking about some serious hunting for a slice of some “damn fine pie”.  A family trip years […]

Gone Bakin’ (Blueberry Boy Bait)

Gone Bakin’ (Blueberry Boy Bait)

After being on a roll for a couple of weeks I found myself with blogger’s block.  I perused magazines, poured over cookbooks and surfed food blogs looking for inspiration.  Nothing, zippo, nada, zilch, appealed..how could that be? I usually have more than a few recipes tucked away in […]

Yes, Biscuits Again!

Yes, Biscuits Again!

The NYT recipe for spicy pork shoulder made quite a bit so to keep things fresh and interesting (the classic leftover dilemma), we looked for different ways to enjoy our Instant Pot Pulled Pork.  We quickly discovered all that pure porky goodness goes well with just about anything. […]

Here, There, Everywhere…Pumpkin

Here, There, Everywhere…Pumpkin

Everywhere I turn I am reminded that Fall is upon us.  Shorter days, cooler nights, falling leaves blanketing the ground….and pumpkin in EVERYTHING!  Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bars, cake, cookies, cheesecake, pancakes…auuugh!  It is endless.  But as much as the pumpkin onslaught has tempered my […]

Beyond Stupid Easy, Quick Strawberry Jam

Beyond Stupid Easy, Quick Strawberry Jam

I still haven’t made that transition to feeding two instead of five.  This is no more evident than when I go to the farmer’s market.  Going to my favorite vendor I linger over baskets of beautiful, ripe strawberries.   I pop one in my mouth, […]

Peche a Trois’ (Peach Hand Pies)

Peche a Trois’ (Peach Hand Pies)

I am going to miss Jamie’s and our weekly forays to the farmer’s market.  Not that the season is ending but Jamie heads back to Houston this coming week so there goes my kitchen buddy for awhile. We found some luscious peaches at the market […]

The Perfect Pancake

The Perfect Pancake

I got home from rowing the other morning and spied our stainless steel mixing bowl sitting on the counter.  Hmm….looks like Wes made pancakes for breakfast.  There was just enough batter left in the bowl for one good size pancake.   The griddle was still on the […]
