A Tuscan Lunch

The big highlight of our week was almost too easy to pinpoint. You’ll be excited to hear that my little patio garden is doing very well now. In fact, it’s done so well that we were able to harvest the first of our cherry tomatoes. They ended up being a larger variety than we were […]

Little Bits of “Normal” Returning

fresh organic stone fruits from the Little Italy Mercato Saturday / It’s been a long time coming (three and half months to be exact), but it finally feels like some of the little nuances of our “normal” life are returning.

Late July Snacks

On our hunt to switch all of our food purchases from conventional to organic, a classic round cracker was needed – something buttery, light, perfect for snacking on its own or dipped, and yes, round.

Clover Sonoma Organic Cream Cheese
