feast magazine feature: Wok This Way

Yo: all photos by Jennifer Silverberg.

Hi! Depending on when you read this, I’m currently opening boxes and finding homes for things, or feverishly painting the house. It’s all going at a decent clip – well, the painting is: the boxes are getting shoved in the basement until I can really commit to doing them correctly. I’m for sure not avoiding them. For sure.

Dateline: March 22, 2016. I moved! Houses, that is; the blog is obviously in the same place it always was. This was a months-long process of falling in love (with this house), getting our house on the market, and then settling into this one. It’s perfect for us: I don’t have to use my kitchen table as my office anymore, and we actually have room for all the vintage cookware I’ve amassed over the years. There’s a formal living and dining room (if you’re keeping up, that’s two places to eat!) and at couldn’t be more in love with a house if I tried. It’s all I can do to keep from doing the Sound of Music Maria-in-the-mountains spin over and over again.  Continue Reading…

Baked, Occasionally: chocolate texas sheet cake with peanut butter frosting.

chocolate texas sheet cake with peanut butter frosting.

This months’ Baked, Occasionally post is brought to you in haste, sort of. You see, kind people of the blog, I am moving: the blog is staying right here it is, by I myself am moving houses. I couldn’t be more thrilled about this, but it’s been a little chaotic around these parts lately, and I didn’t want to say anything lest I jinx the process. We’ll talk about the move (and i’ll totally share photos of the old and new houses!) in a future post, when my world is not upside-down and packed in a various assortment of cardboard boxes.

I made you all the Super Bowl food.

February 6, 2016

Super Bowl: Feast Eats

A few months ago, I was hard at work making Super Bowl food: like, a lot of food. all the food. See those whoopies? I made those whoopies, and all the other stuff around it, and stuff you can’t even see. Why? Because Feast asked me to, which means I have you *completely* covered for tomorrow. Right this way.  I absolutely did not take any of these photos; I’m way too busy busting out food on these shoot days. All photos by Emily Suzanne Photography, including the one above.

chopped winter salad with pickled vegetables.

Hi! Just me.

Most likely, the same exact me as before, complete with talents and shortcomings and strengths and weaknesses and the whole bit. Last year vanished in a blur of work and life things, one tumbling in right after the next, and i felt mostly like the circus act with the spinning plates most days. A small handful of precious days were spent not doing anything productive, but those were few and far between. If I had to grade 2015, I’d have gotten an A- for learning, growth, and reaching beyond my comfort zone, and an D- for blogging. D+ for keeping up with friendships, and that would be generous. B+ for parenting, though, so that’s something. Continue Reading…

I made you all the Thanksgiving desserts.

November 16, 2015
Pie's the Limit: All the thanksgiving desserts for Feast Magazine.

all the desserts: photograph by Jennifer Silverberg (because I’m not capable of this sort of immense talent but you all know that already.)

Can we talk about Thanksgiving for a minute? Or just November in general? It may be turkey season here in the United States, but it’s baking season all over the world. No one really ever asks me how best to cook a turkey, because frankly, I have no idea.

But sometimes, friends…sometimes people ask me to weigh in on desserts. The reasons for this should be obvious. Continue Reading…
