Megan Gordon’s Whole Grain Gingerbread

December 17th, 2013 Megan Gordon

Megan and I met some time ago, when she was still living in San Francisco. I won’t go into some of the big life changes she was going through at the time, but if you follow her blog and read through her beautiful new book, Whole-Grain Mornings, you’ll get a glimpse into her somewhat unlikely […]

How to Be a Good House Guest + Lo & Sons Travel Bag Giveaway

October 17th, 2013 How to Be a Good House Guest + Lo & Sons Travel Bag Giveaway

A while ago, I wrote a post about how to be a great host, so I thought it was time to follow up that post with a few tips for being a good house guest. One of my cardinal rules for staying at someone’s home is traveling light. I don’t want my host to feel […]

Clementine-Poppy Seed Loaf, Like Lemon, But Better

January 12th, 2011 Clementine-Poppy Seed Loaf

Winter fruit hardly excites me. I do love pears, and apples are good only when they are REALLY good, but other than that, I find winter to be the doldrums of fruit consumption. Perhaps that explains why, in the summer, I will readily eat three peaches in one day, as though I am emotionally stock-piling, […]
