I have a lot of thoughts that I would love to share if you’re interested. I get to see the manuscript one more time, for several weeks in May, and I believe at that point it…

Overnight Strawberry Jam Buns With Lemon Crème Frâiche


I went completely crazy taking photos for this post. I could photograph these jam buns for days. I mean, look at them. Go on. We make a quick strawberry jam with strawberries, sugar and lemon juice + zest, nothing else.

Burrata Caprese Burgers With Lemon Basil Aïoli


Holy moly. These Caprese burgers. Like a late summer farmer’s market collided with your local Italian butcher. All the best summer flavors (heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil leaves), a thick meaty-burger fortified with egg yolk and finely grated parmesan, an oozy layer of burrata and a bright pop of flavor from the lemon-basil aïoli. And the bacon rounds, let’s not…

Petite Lemon Cakes


I have a couple of things I’d like to explore, answer, clear up…so pour yourself a cocktail and pull up a chair. First, let’s talk about my inclination towards sweets. I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not…but I seem to be posting lots of dessert recipes. Deep down inside, I always knew I liked to bake. I just didn’t realize…

{ grill me somethin’ tasty, beautiful }

Here’s the best thing about this recipe: I’ve never met an easier one. I mean cheap and easy is this guy’s first…

{ pucker up }


{ lemon-ginger pavlova with fresh strawberry sauce } Lemons are just a beautiful thing. When I was pregnant I couldn’t get enough of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Heaven. Even better was fresh-squeezed and muddled strawberry lemonade. Oh joy. I would search far and wide–which usually meant I sought out the closest Bristol Farms–for a tall frosty glass.
