Breakfast with a friend I’ve known for nearly 20 years. Boggles the mind ever so slightly.
Hitting the Goodwill of my childhood with my sister and Emmett.
This was the message on the parking space I pulled into while in San Francisco. I hope it’s true!
This is the demo kitchen at Purcell Murray, an upscale kitchen showroom just outside of San Francisco. It was, by far, the most beautiful place I’ve ever taught a class.
Dinner with Cheryl Sternman Rule. She put together such a pretty plate!
Waiting for luggage at LAX, I felt a strong sense of deja vu. It’s only appropriate, since this was the airport of my first eight years of life.
After my demo at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market was over, I wandered over to find my Uncle Bill playing with his bluegrass band. It was such a kick to see him.
Picnicking with Seattle food writers and bloggers. It was such a treat to spend an afternoon with them.
Teaching canning at The Pantry. I taught two nights in a row at this space and really enjoyed the experience. I hope to go back someday and do it again.
This is my nephew Emmett. He is a precious, sweet, delightful little person and it is such a joy to have him in the family.
Emmett, hanging with Lucy and Milo.
A tasty agua fresca, consumed with a favorite Portland friend.
My parents’ “pet” squirrel, Earl. He hangs upside down on screen and hopes against hope that they’ll let him in.
I spent the afternoon on the patio with Emmett, while Raina played. He is an exceedingly good kid.
Making almond butter. It’s always best to start with freshly toasted nuts.
Honey strawberry jam with thyme. It’s tasty stuff.
Peanut butter toast with my mom’s blackberry jam.
Suddenly, I’m on the other side of the country, at BlogHer Food.
Waiting for the bus in West Seattle.
The prep table at Sitka & Spruce. What an amazing lunch that was.
The demo space at The Book Larder in Seattle. I had an awesome event there.
Getting ice cream on Memorial Day Monday.
Samples at my book event at Odyssey Books. It was such a lovely night.
Iced coffee at The Roost in Northampton, MA. I think it may be my favorite coffeeshop/casual eatery/bar on the east coast.
Boxes of my book!
Making fermented radish slices.
Selling books at Greensgrow.
At the Dupont Circle Farmers’ Market in Washington, DC.
