Vermont is for (Pie) Lovers

I ran off to Vermont a few weeks ago. I did not pass Go. I did not collect two hundred dollars. But unlike my favorite board game (ever), on the other end of the two plus hour drive, I found (pie) heaven. I escaped to have a little family time, take long walks with the

What We’re Loving: Avocado

What We’re Loving: Avocado

I usually try to eat as locally and seasonally as possible, but there are some foods for which I’ll make an exception. Until I move back to California and get an avocado tree in my yard, avocado will have to be one of those foods. We always have some on hand these days to feed

Now that summer is here, all warm and aromatic and fruity, I’m taking my time. I spent a weekend in Vermont with the family, just long enough to grill up everything, make some fresh pie and drink and laugh until the big supermoon blended into a bright sunrise. It was one of those weekend’s just

What We’re Loving: Gelato

What We’re Loving: Gelato

You scream, I scream, we all scream for… gelato? Oh, yes. Yes, yes, YES. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all over good old American ice cream but when I tried my first spoon of creamy, velvety, ludicrously flavorful gelato, I knew ice cream was going to have to budge over and share its space

It wouldn’t be summer without blueberries and Molly takes our favorite summer fruit to another level in this simple pie with a cornmeal crust – a cornmeal crust that’s been woven into a pretty lattice and topped with sugar.

Happy Monday! Today, Matthew updates an old and loved recipe of his youth, a Raspberry Lime Rickey, that we think is just right for July.

What We’re Loving: Figs

by Kate H. Knapp
What We're Loving: Figs

Ah, sweet and seductive figs. Though I grew up eating Fig Newtons—delightfully unaware that the fig in the name referred to an actual fruit—my love affair with the purple and plump figs didn’t truly begin until breakfast one morning in Paris (as so many epic romances do). Sitting with my adorable mom—who happens to be

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

What We’re Loving: Smoothies

My best friend recently got a Vitamix in the mail from her mother-in-law, and I immediately began to “ooh” and “ahh,” as I’d coveted this particular appliance for many, many years. My husband had told me to just buy one already (after he’d caught me looking at different models on the internet one time too

What We’re Loving: Cherries

What We’re Loving: Cherries

So I might have this all-consuming love of cherries. The sort of love that has me justifying a giant paper bag of the ripest ones as lunch. Luckily, I am in the south of France right now, and positively swimming in them. The French take their cherries seriously, as do I, which is why overflowing

Spring dinner parties are best for light dinners that remind you that summer is oh so close. In this salad, fresh fish with a bit of oil in it pairs just beautifully with tart rhubarb. Try it with mackerel or trout or even anchovies. Your next weekend brunch party will be a hit, promise. -Maggie

It’s officially strawberry season! And after downing several (fifteen?) cartons of these delectable little berries fresh, you might be looking for a way to showcase them, which is where this dreamy pavlova comes in, courtesy of Jen.

What We’re Loving: Cream

When I was young, my great-grandparents had a small ranch. I was lucky enough to live just down the gravel lane from them, and spent most of my childhood running in the pasture and chasing after cows. My great-grandmother had one milking cow, tan in color and easily distinguished from the others, and she milked

My daughter was born almost nine months ago, and has now been eating solid foods for just under three months. As she and I embark on this new culinary journey together, I’ve been reading a lot (books, articles, blogs – you name it) on the many ways I can help her become an adventurous eater.
