Oatmeal Pancakes with Lingonberry Jam (from Good to the Grain)

July 19th, 2010 Oatmeal Pancakes with Lingonberry Jam

Here’s the thing about pancakes: you start with one and then you go for another (maybe with a different topping) and then another…And then you have to unzip your pants. I, like Joy the Baker, and probably a billion other people can’t get enough of them. I could write an ode to a few different […]

Buckwheat and Sea Salt Cookie Sundaes

February 11th, 2014 Buckwheat and Sea Salt Cookie Sundae

My favorite sites, blogs, and magazines, often feature articles written about people. People I don’t even know, but they’re the most interesting ones. There are posts about people’s relationships with their moms and dads, their grandmothers and grandfathers, even their pets. I’ve read some great posts about people’s divorces and the reasons behind the shutdown […]

Saffron Snickerdoodles and the Secret Sauce to Blogging

July 16th, 2013 Saffron Snickerdoodles

Back in the early days of blogging, links were the best way to discover new sites, content, and voices around the Internet. Everyone seemed to have a blogroll, and anyone who knew anything about search would tell you that this was one of the best ways to get found on the Internet. For example, if […]

Turntable Kitchen’s Cookbook Lover’s Gift Guide

November 30th, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I’m a firm believer in having a house full of good books that don’t just live in my iPad or eReader. I have always loved the feel of a hard cover, the smell of paper and ink, and the way that a physical book looks on a bookshelf. Even […]

Whole Wheat Almond-Poppy Seed Pancakes: Make Plans

October 8th, 2012

Pancakes have become somewhat of a weekly tradition for us. Most days, Matt and I each sit down to a bowl of food — he to his cereal, me to my yogurt and granola. But on Saturday morning, I often start thinking about what I’ll be making for breakfast before I’ve even opened my eyes. […]

Blueberry Buckle: Hello from Under Here

August 23rd, 2012

I’m writing to you from a black hole. A brief breath of fresh air in the midst of one of the busiest, most chaotic weeks of work. The reason? It’s called a conference. Have you ever been involved in prepping for a conference? Let me tell you what it feels like: like you will never […]

Habit-Forming: Spiced Whole Grain Chocolate Cake with Salted Chocolate Frosting

April 11th, 2012

A few weeks ago, I was listening to NPR in my car, as I often do. In between world news and the circus that is a presidential election year, came a refreshing story about forming habits. I learn about all sorts of things on NPR, and this day was no exception. The talk was about […]

That was Awkward, But Let’s Talk About Carrot Coffee Cake

October 25th, 2011

One of my favorite bloggers, Joanna Goddard recently wrote a cute little blog post, asking readers about their first kiss. Mine was at the ripe old age of 16 (or maybe it was 15?), with a boy who lived down the street (convenient) and had a car and a driver’s license before I did (even MORE […]

Dessert for Breakfast: Beer and Barley Crepes

January 31st, 2011

The day after I got Kim Broyce’s Good to the Grain, I went out and purchased six different kinds of flour. I had read so many rave reviews about the book (and had already bookmarked a few recipes) but having it in my hands was what really put me over the edge. Months later, I […]

Planes, The Life Below, Apple Butter

October 11th, 2010

If I could fly on planes every day, I think I could genuinely write a book. I’d cover chapters above the clouds, land somewhere inspiring and be off again–just me and my notebooks. I’m not sure why, but thoughts just seem to be clearer when you are gliding miles and miles above the whole world […]
