Weekend Brunch with Canvas Home

Thursday, May 26, 2016

A few weeks ago I got a wonderful package in the mail: dishes and other table accessories from Canvas Home. They kindly sent me some pieces for a Mother’s Day Brunch I was having at my house, and I honestly swooned upon opening the package. I picked dishes from the Abbesses collection (with the gold trim), and am happy to report they are not only beautiful, but so…

I finally got to meet baby Margot, and take a few pictures of her as well. This family has been dear friends for years and years, and it is such a joy to welcome their new little. Some links for your Sunday reading and viewing: I have always believed that trees are friends, and I can’t wait to read this book I’m a big fan of Vivian Maier’s…

This past week I got to tag along while my sister-in-law-to-be tried on wedding dresses, and sneaked a few shots during our time. We’re all terribly excited she’s going to be part of the family. David Bowie and Alan Rickman left us this week. Here’s some Sunday morning reading and viewing to celebrate both: oh!youprettythings David Bowie’s Formative Reading List Chilly Gonzales: Pop Masterclass David Bowie cookies David…

my sister #shelivesfree

I know this is not food related, but I’d like to take a moment to shine a light on a serious topic: human trafficking. A few months back, my friend Jonathan Sipola helped start My Sister, a benefit corporation dedicated to help end human trafficking (Not familiar with benefit corporations? You can read more about B Corps here). Did you know that there is an estimated 27 million…

“It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it…and then the warmth and…

My dear friends just had the sweetest little – I got to stop by and take some photographs. Some links for your Sunday: Helen Keller visits a dance studio. Beautiful. Julia Child’s kitchen. Murray. He’s still my favorite. Liz Prueitt from Tartine talks about being a working mom. I’m still missing Dave. This pie. I have to make it.  …

‘The great chefs of France and Italy learn about food at home; what they do later, in the restaurants that make them famous, is use what they have learned. They build on it, they start elaborating. They take home cooking to the restaurant, not the restaurant school of cooking to the home. Inverting the process is like learning a vocabulary without any grammar…We are at risk, here, of…

Silent Sunday

“I can eat anywhere, standing up if I have to. That said, I have always loved the idea of a kitchen table around which people can gather. Having spent a good year or more scouring the Internet, antique shops, and salvage yards for something that works for me, I finally decided to have one made. The idea had never crossed my mind until I saw, quite by chance,…

‘We live in a world where twists and turns are applauded. I’ve had my share of bacon-, avocado-, and cheese-flavored ice creams – most of which I could do without. And a whole year once passed when I didn’t eat a scoop of vanilla ice cream. When I finally did, my taste buds, wiped clean of their memory of vanilla, experienced something new. I felt like I was…

a few days in winona

Monday, April 6, 2015

Last week I spent a few days in Winona, working on a food column I write with Larry and Colleen for Food 52. We spent most our time cooking, baking, and photographing, but did find time to have some meaningful conversation and watch a few episodes of Flight of the Conchords. Just a little green Like the color when the spring is born There’ll be crocuses to bring…
