  5. Rhubarb and Rye Upside Down Cake

    My first spring in Seattle and I’m already learning what it means to get ‘hit’ by the passing season. Coming from California, where spring isn’t quite so distinctive, I wasn’t prepared for the amount of change I would experience all around me, so suddenly. It’s like one morning I woke up to buds on every Continue…

  9. Heidi Swanson’s Rye Pound Cake

    I’ve been slowly — very, very slowly — reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Big Magic. Every couple of nights when I’m not up late working, or putzing around the internet, I look at it on my nightstand and decide to read a chapter or two. When I first started reading it, I thought I’d breeze through Continue…

  10. Chicken Enchiladas Verdes: Nothing is Ever “Done”

    One thing I’ve quickly realized as a home owner is that nothing is ever ‘done.’ Hard as I struggle to have the picture be ‘complete’ there is always room to change (or shitty pipes to fix before thinking about pretty tile work). I’m reluctantly beginning to accept that this applies to more than just home Continue…
