**This post is sponsored by Dunn Brothers Coffee. As usual, all opinions are my own.** Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and…

A few weeks ago the lovely people at the Blue Heron Coffeehouse had a book signing and dinner to celebrate the release of The Vanilla Bean Baking Book. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening. I saw familiar faces I used to wait on in my barista days; I met new friends, and celebrated with old ones. If you’ve read through my book you know the Blue Heron…

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…

“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…

A few things: Super excited about Food 52’s new cookbook. Also their new videos are pretty rad. DAVID BAZAN. Just saw him play a house show and it was beautiful. Check out his Bazan monthly recordings. Complicated coffee. I love this video. One of my New Year’s resolutions is working my way through this Reading Challenge (but a Minnesota book instead of a Montana one). Wind & Willow…

It may be ginghamed as to curtains and shining with copper like a picture in a woman’s magazine. But you and I will know it chiefly by its fragrances and its clutter. At the back of the stove will sit a…
