Gourmet Glamping

Hints of spring are in the air, people (!!) and I already feel like busting out my crop tops and Birkenstocks! Okay, maybe it’s still a little too early though. I’m a total shivering wimp if it’s anything less than 70° and sunny outside. But anywayyyy, you know what it’s definitely NOT too early for?! Planning your spring glamping menu. Yup! And that’s exactly what my good friend Lauren and I have been working on. We recently brushed off the winter leaves from her sweet little vintage glamper and started brainstorming… with wine of course. Camping with friends doesn’t have to mean eating foil pack hamburger and Fritos over a fire. Although there’s definitely nothing wrong with throwback girl scout campfire food just for the record! But why not elevate the experience a bit, something delicious but still simple. We are starting to get used to this whole adulting thing after all.

Lentil Soup alla Momma

I’m bustin’ out another family recipe this week. This one is inspired by the call of cold winter evenings and cozy meals from home. My mom made this soup a lot growing up — quick, easy, and oh so comforting. I’ve never made it myself until now. When I asked my mom if she would let me in on her recipe I discovered it’s actually my grandma’s recipe (!!) For me, that makes it even more special. I think that’s what I enjoy so much about food. Besides the fact that I just really like to eat, I enjoy that it’s all been pasted down. All of our recipes and ideas about food came from someone before us — it’s like history. And most of what we learn about food comes from those that feed us — it’s like love. Food is love, ya know. ☮ ✌

Pear + Olive Oil Cake

It’s been a while, but I’M BACK! I hope everyone had a wonderful and special holiday season. Since I last checked in with you all I’ve added a few new cookbooks to my collection (my loved one’s support my addiction all too well) which meeaannsss lots of testing recipes, lots of eating, AND that my kitchen is 100% messy 100% of the time. But it’s not all bad because… well, food ;)
