I almost can’t believe that we’re over 5 weeks and nearly 10,000 miles in to The CSA Cookbook Road Trip (by the time you read this, we will have hit that 10,000-mile mark on the Lost Coast of California). When Will and I first set out on this adventure in May, we weren’t sure how […]

I still remember my first serious stroll through the kitchen section at Macy’s when I was 20 and living away from home.

The five little things that made my week… 1. After four years of waiting and watching them grow verdant in spring only to go dormant in winter, fruitless, our grapevines finally have… itty bitty little grapes!
