Cauliflower Tabouli


Gabe recently suggested we come up with some sort of rating system for our dinners. Not as a way of judging my successes and failures in the kitchen but rather to celebrate the rare times when everyone cleans their plate.

Winter Slaw + Jalapeño Tahini Dressing


A gaping void in the corner exists where the tree once stood while its soft scented needles still require vacuuming.

Goodbye 2016


When it comes to the end of the year I’m just so excited to say good riddance to the current year and a big waving arms hello to a bright and shiny new year.

Holiday Gift Guide


Our first ever NWS Holiday Gift Guide is happening!! For well over a month now I’ve had a Google Doc open clicking over to it frantically as I’ve thought of the things in my life that make my toes tickle and my stomach flutter.

Molly’s Cauliflower Shawarma Tacos


What an amazing season it’s been for cookbooks. Stacks have formed in every corner of the house, on the kitchen counter and threatened to tumble off the coffee table.

Roasted Corn and Tomato Chowder


Comfort. That’s the word that keeps rolling around in my mind today. Our new pup, Lily, cozies up in her dark blue bed sitting next to the fire.

Homemade Twix: Bars + Tart


Thank you so much for your kind words from the last post. Sharing all of that left me with a bit of a vulnerability hangover but I was so lifted by your comments and reminded of how fortunate I am for this community and that I get the pleasure of sharing my life with you all.

Seared Steaks with Caper Relish


About a month ago I received a very powerful and vulnerable email from a reader. She had just finished reading Date Night In for the second time and this time she was particularly struck by the chapter where I gush about burgers.

Date Night In: Smoky Fish Tacos


* I’m thrilled to introduce you to a partnership I’m especially proud of and excited about. Chateau St.

I had no intention of using the blackberries in cupcakes but I was on one of those end-of-the-season grocery store trips where I had this seasonal sense of urgency.
