Not even lost, just found

In browsing back through all the blogs I didn’t read while I was away, I stumbled upon two things so useful that I couldn’t resist sharing them with you!

From Julie at Domestic Goddess Adventures, a template for cutting your own cupcake wrappers out of whatever awesome paper you like. (Note that these not liners: […]

Salad days of summer

If I were Michael Pollan and I were making up a motto for eating seasonally in New England in June, it would go something like this: Eat leaves. Mostly lettuce. All you can of it.

Summer and fall are the seasons of lettuce, as my first farmshare box attested: one bunch of broccoli […]

What to cook when you don’t have time to cook

People. I owe you some awesome recipes! But I’m about to go work at a week-long event, and thus I am lucky to be eating anything that doesn’t come out of a bag.

We will be back to our regularly scheduled posting in June, but in the meantime, I bet I’m not the only […]


Guess which food blogger completely failed to post this week? Oh, that would be me. And not for lack of food, either! I owe you all some salads next week, and by then, hopefully I will even have made extra-awesome versions.

In the meantime, here’s a peace offering: a roundup of adorable, sustainable, or otherwise […]

Scones at the Amateur Gourmet

Adam over at Amateur Gourmet has launched an awesome new feature: a community blog. I have a guest post up over there, with a recipe for cinnamon oatmeal scones.

Chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel frosting

These are some very serious cupcakes. You’re almost certainly going to have to go to the store before you can make them. They require you to make your own caramel. You’re going to have to wash a small mountain of dishes. But they are mighty. I used them to bribe people to help me move […]

Butternut squash soup

First apology: I’m sorry! I posted two recipes on Tuesday, in a fit of post-scheduling failure, and then topped it off by posting nothing yesterday!

Second apology:

I make a lot of soup, and I like a lot of it, but this is a serious contender for being the most universally acclaimed. The kick […]

Not-too-sweet maple-glazed sweet potatoes

Normally I’m opposed to adding anything sweet to orange vegetables. They start off pretty sweet as is, so savory preparations usually seem like the way to go. Also, I somehow managed to grow up sheltered from the travesty that is sweet potato-marshmallow casserole. But I digress.

My point is that this recipe, despite the […]

How to eat locally

I can’t believe I forgot to post this earlier this week, but I did! I wrote a beginner’s guide to eating locally that was posted over at EarthSpirit Voices. I’ll be posting there roughly once a month on topics related to sustainable food, gardening, and earth-centered spiritual practices; feel free to check it out if […]
