[column width=”47%” padding=”6%”] The last few days have been really hot and so Justin & I have been mostly living off of salads. But today it was cooler as the sea breezes swept through the apartment during the night. Today was a good day to bake. I started with breads. I had some old dough […]
[column width=”47%” padding=”6%”] Friday’s Fritatta. Sunday’s spaghetti. Alliterations aside, these meals have kept us going through some very busy days! We ate the fritatta for both Friday and Saturday, leaving room for a huge mesclun and Boston Bibb salad made from my garden harvest of lettuce + the CSA Bibb. Since March, we’ve been eating […]
Light and fluffy cornbread. Justin & I happened across a can (yes, a can) of vegetarian baked beans. What better thing to go with baked beans than cornbread? A few weeks ago I was researching bean pots because I really want to make baked beans from scratch. I love the idea of a giant simmering […]
Yes, it actually is the most beautiful thing I have ever baked. Amaze your friends with this ridiculously easy recipe:

What better way to celebrate a Sunday morning than lovely, sweet delicious ObamaBuns. Not too sticky, no! Chock full of almond paste with brown sugar and butter, oh yes!
Cast iron is one of those things that once a person gets into, rarely do they give it up. I forget who it was that introduced me to my first skillet, but I haven’t been the same since. I have always appreciated simple things. I enjoy the straight-forward and the honest. Cast iron is one […]
I saw a recipe on thefreshloaf.com for Pita bread and recalled I had a can of chickpeas in the pantry that would make a super nice hummus. Paired up with the falafel and the bounty of vegetables we have on hand.. well, it was a formula for Mediterranean Night!
