Unexpected Words of Encouragement
I don't really know how to say this without sounding corny. But it really is amazing when the words you need the most pop up to you in the least expected ways. Let me explain. The past few months have been pretty quite a whirlwind. I felt more and more ever...

'Cause I Ain't Got Nothin' but Time: Pickles & Fermented Carrots
For Christmas this year, Rob got me a fermenting kit . It's a lot simpler than I expected something like this to be: it's just a few lids with airlocks and stoppers that fit directly on Mason jars that we already own.  I guess he figured that since I'm basi...

**

Lemon, Thyme and Honey Overnight Oats
It is hard to get back into the healthy breakfast routine after the vacation I just had. Waking up in the beach cottage on the coast of Maine last week, it was the unspoken rule that whoever was up first would start frying up the thick cut, smoky bacon. Usu...

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri, Farro Salad, Walla Walla Wine
I think I've got down the equation for a perfect Sunday dinner: two parts slow, one part fast. By this I mean two ingredients that need to sit and let the flavors mingle together in the fridge for a couple hours. You can prepare at will and then let it fini...

The Only Five Ingredients You'll Need for Sunday Meal Prep
If you're like me, Sunday meal prep is really hard. Pinterest makes it look easy to pre-package a dozen meals into a neatly
organized set of Tupperware, but when you get down to it on Sunday afternoon,
it’s easy to get overwhelmed. How do you know in advanc...
