blueberrycakeblog2

Well.  I’m 3 days into recovering from food poisoning.  I no longer wish to die, so that’s always a plus. I got out of bed almost like normal for the past two days.  I’m still slightly nauseous but am overall on the mend.  I haven’t been able to exercise all week, which usually negatively affects […]

There’s a good chance that a batch of these monster cookies will be made in my kitchen every weekend from now till the end of  August.  Why, you ask?  Well.  There’s two good reasons.  The first reason is—these are the signature cookies that my beloved 12 year old makes and when someone else offers to […]

NOTHING says summer like fresh tomatoes.  Can I get an amen?  And if it’s not summer where you are, please consider moving to my good state.  We’d love to have you!   Fresh tomatoes may be my favorite thing in all the world.  I’ve got about 7 different varieties in my garden as we speak […]

  “The arrival of company at the house, the arranging of dinners and suppers, in style, awoke all the energies of her soul; and no sight was more welcome to her than a pile of traveling trunks launched on the verandah, for then she foresaw fresh efforts and fresh triumphs.”~ Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s […]

I married a biology major who loves and studies birds and trees.  In the house before this one,  he planted 90—yes you read that right—90! trees.  His middle name is Martin so maybe he comes by it honestly.  In this house, I lost count at around 40.  He was planning the trees before the foundation […]

Puffy Tacos {Taco Bar for Cinco de Mayo}

by Edie Wadsworth on May 5, 2014

puffytacos2

I’m about to give away the family jewels here.  And listen.  After all the busyness and writing and preparing of the last few weeks, I’d give just about anything away for summer to be here.  Or least to never have to be nicely dressed for 12 straight hours again.  I’ve become such a homebody whiner.

Fairer Than Day

 I breathe deeply, and certainty enters into me like light, like a piece of science, and curious music seems to hum inside my fingers. Is there a single person on whom I can press belief?  No sir.  All I can do is say, Here’s how it went. Here’s what I saw. I’ve been there and am […]

Dear kind and spicy friends, I took 817 pictures of this soup and I COULD NOT capture the deliciousness of this creamy chicken tortilla soup. Whatsoever. Please believe me when I say that this soup is the mother of all tor-tilla soups.  (We say tortilla like gorilla, for special effects.) This is but a warm […]

The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Taming Paperwork

by Edie Wadsworth on March 10, 2014

peacewithpapers.jpg

This is an update on a post I did about paperwork and since I’m a right-brained, creative, ADD, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-skinny-jeans kind of a girl, I thought you’d like to know that tax season didn’t stress me out at all. This system has worked well for me for the past two years, so I think I finally […]

kitchenconfessions

  I’m ashamed to say that my kitchen has been sorely neglected until yesterday.  I spent the better part the afternoon cleaning and froofing, but have not been on my A game with cooking lately.  And by that I mean we’ve had frozen pizza twice this week.  What are we, newlyweds?  I even went to […]
