Here’s what you need to know about this soup—Stevie said it’s the best soup he’s ever had.  And the man has had a plethora of soups in his day. He’s married to the woman who will make a soup out of ANYTHING.  Also of note? His family is a mixture of German and Scandinavian and […]

Do you have any idea how happy I am that soup season is officially here?  SO HAPPY.  As in, I can hardly stand myself with excitement over which soup to make next.  Not that a small thing like weather could keep me from making the best ever beef stew at the drop of a hat.  If […]

“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 […]

choccookies

If I can be known for two things in life, let it be soup and cookies.  Okay, and maybe bread and buttercream. I don’t know if there is any sight more dear to me than just out of the oven, ever so slightly undercooked chocolate chip cookies.  And these will make you go weak in the […]

I’ve never quite had a baking center like this but it was a priority when we rebuilt our house. I’ve had various versions of one for a long time and here’s the truth of the matter—-if your supplies are easily accessible and organized, you’ll bake more.  (You might also like a full tour of the […]

I hate to even mention this to some of you who live in the northwest or midwest or northeast and have really short summers but here in the South, all we can think about is fall.  It’s been summer since April here and we’re over it.  AND?  It’s almost football season (Glory Hallelujah!) which means […]

“How to announce the return of comfort and well-being except by cooking something fragrant. That is what her mother always did. After every calamity of any significance she would fill the atmosphere of the house with the smell of cinnamon rolls or brownies, or with chicken and dumplings, and it would mean, This house has […]

Well.  I can’t give you a good reason why we’ve been friends all these years and I’m just now getting around to sharing this recipe.  It’s a good one—one that we make it several times every summer, in between all the actual s’mores making and the monster cookies. My peeps LOVE these and once you […]

Well.  I’m 3 days into recovering from food poisoning.  I no longer wish to die, so that’s always a plus.
