Raspberry + Ricotta Cake

I’ve been meeting a lot of really cool folks on bikes lately. And I don’t just mean in the way that folks who love bikes – I mean really love bikes and love to ride them fast and far and with reckless abandon –…

Strawberry + Pistachio Buckle

We didn’t live in the Bay Area for a terribly long time, but it was long enough to collect a good handful of people, places and things that are worthy of never-ending love. These are loves that are typically managed easily from a distance, given…

Poppyseed + Lemon Marmalade Muffins

I was climbing the canyon on my bike earlier this week and could finally feel the satisfying, salty sweat of almost-summer rolling down my temples. I didn’t need sleeves, or legs, or even gloves to keep warm on my ride – spring was all around.…

An Easy Blood Orange Upside-Down Cake

I wrote a bit last week about worthwhile distractions, about being a scatterbrain, and that I was pretty sure that this was a sign that I’m “living in the moment” and being present. Presently Out-of-My-Mind is also a thing. In the dark this morning, a…

Apple + Pecan Crumble Muffins

In my experience, things never go as they “should.” They go as they will. They never go as you imagine them – in fact I’m 100% convinced that once I imagine something going in a specific way, it will inevitably NOT end up that…

A Great Winter Porridge Recipe

To be clear, this was our fourth move in one year; from Berkeley into storage then to Portland. From Portland – and from storage- into moving pods. From moving pods to Boulder, and then from our little rental four doors down to a place all…

Pumpkin Bread w/Cinnamon-y Pecans

The last you heard from me, I was in China. I have a lot more to share about that trip, among other things that it has actually come and gone and that we’re already headed towards the horizon that has always been stretching along…
