There once was a barren land with nothing growing but grass and wild thyme around our house. Soon, we started mapping out a plan to put in a vegetable garden. Great idea! I thought we would have a quaint little garden. We have been caring for this (not-so-quaint) garden all summer and things are flourishing. Especially… Read More Zucchini Recipes: Round 1
The great fried donut project. I have been wanting to do this for years. Sometime over the weekend while searching for a(other) zucchini recipe, I came across a zucchini cake donut. I was ready to tackle frying at home. I was going to be brave. So I read and researched a bit more on the great… Read More Raised Donuts
Hello, there! It has been so many months and moon cycles since I have last posted. I have thought often of this sweet blog. I am ready to give and share again with gratitude and joy. Maybe we can start by enjoying a piece of this fruit galette with a rather perfect spelt dough?
Many months have passed since my last Here & There post. So much has changed around here! To try and convey all of the many steps that we have been attempting to uncover, learn and discover over the past year would be silly. I am not a great dancer.

Kale chips. Did you know just how easy they can be? I have always used the oven to bake them and the results were consistent and always delicious. Recently, I was crunching on some kale chips that my mother-in-law made. We were talking about how easy they were. I asked if she baked them in the oven?… Read More Simple Snack: Kale Chips

I paused for a moment – I did not understand this sudden move in the game of babyhood. Instead, I shifted. A change in lesson plan. I stopped what I was doing (working on this post for… Read More Here & There: Lessons Learned
I was flipping through a recent issue of “Bon Appetit” and stumbled upon an article using pantry ingredients. With a quick check of my cupboards, and one shallot later, I was on my way to creating a fast dinner!
It has been a challenge to find moments during the full days to share words, pictures and food with you! I am working on finding a better system to do this! I am feeling less foggy, more alive, and there is a pep in my step. It is a wonderful feeling which, frankly, just kicked in… Read More Vegan Cinnamon Date Rolls
