‘When you sow and tend a seed and wait patiently for it to grow into something to eat you will cook it carefully and lovingly and use every single scrap. You will want everyone to know that you grew it…Furthermore, it gives one a far greater respect and appreciation for those who grow nourishing and wholesome food all for us.’ - true words from @darina_allen’s Saturday letter, strawberry pesto pasta inspiration from @gkstories, and ALL the produce from what we call the pumpkin patch.
this one’s a definite favorite and so delicious for these summer nights. these tempeh chorizo tacos and a green cashew crema are up on the blog today!
just a little snippet of the daily harvest. super-fresh in abundance. who wants to join my backyard csa? (kinda joking but actually considering!) it just might include fresh flowers and herbs for tea! 😆
waking at dawn to harvest / early morning light / super-fresh strawberries + rhubarb folded into porridge / a good cuppa strong tea
Fueling the last few hours of studying (or therapeutic baking 🙋♀️) with this sophisticated spin on oatmeal raisin cookies via #alternativebakerbook. I have a nationally certifying nutrition exam tomorrow and I’m definitely as or more nervous as any major race, and equally confident and fearful I didn’t study enough or the right topics. If I had to I could describe most of the beneficial (as well as not so beneficial) metabolic effects of the ingredients in these cookies, and explain what’s going to happen when I eat them, what baking does to some of the nutrients, and how that fourth cup of caffeine is maybe not the most helpful today, so maybe, just maybe I know enough. 🤞 Send good thoughts ya’ll, I won’t know the results for a few weeks!
what I love about running where there’s wildflowers: just wait a few days and the scenery will completely change.
