A Very Overdue Post

fried chicken + cornbread

My last post was over six months ago. I promised you guys big, grand news back in January, and then I gave you half a year of silence. I honestly cannot believe that much time has gone by. It’s a gap that, when quantified, scared me a little. I asked myself questions like, “Can I even pick back up where I left off?” and “Do I truly want to?” I’ve spent the better half of a month mulling over these thoughts, wondering if this space could have run its course. But amidst all those doubts, one thought continually pushed its way through: “I miss my blog friends.” My little corner of the online food community has come to be an important part of my life over the years, and letting that fade away would be a damn shame. So, I’m back! With “hi!”s, “sorry!”s, and “I missed you!”s. And a not so short explanation of what I’ve been up to these past six months.

Roasted Mushrooms: A Guest Post (and more!)

The Best Roasted Mushrooms

Hi guys! Just popping in real quick to mention a few exciting RP-related things happening elsewhere this week. First off, I have a guest post up over at A Cup of Jo! I made one of my favorite bachelorette dinners for Joanna’s Eating Dinner Alone series. It’s roasted mushrooms with copious amounts of butter and garlic (best soaked up with half a baguette, obv).

Second, I am so flattered to be featured in Shelly’s Currently Lusting series this week! Shelly is one of my favorite food gals, and her blog Vegetarian Ventures is gorgeous and delicious — I was super psyched to know that the feeling is mutual! (P.S. I think being Blogger I Would Most Like To Get A Drink With could be my new favorite compliment.) ;)

And third, totally delighted to be Food & Wine’s Instagram Follow of the Week! (Um, do you guys remember when I didn’t even HAVE Instagram [that was like six months ago] and I totally felt like a “how-do-I-work-this-darned-technology?” old lady when I started using it? Hurray for progress!)

Rewind: Upstate New York

Untitled

Hey guys! So as I mentioned last week, I’ve been spending some time at my parents’ place in upstate NY while they’re away on vacation. It has rained almost every day I’ve been here, but it’s been those perfect kind of rainy days where it’s an even mix of overcast, sunny, and rainy. Just enough to keep the heat down and water the garden so I don’t have to. Since I love being here and I’ve been taking pictures like mad, I thought I’d share some (ok, so maybe a LOT) of them with you.

Guest Post : A Trio of Summer Beverages

A Trio of Summer Beverages

Hey everyone! I am super duper excited to be sharing a guest post over at The Vanilla Bean Blog today. I adore Sarah’s space, and having the chance to occupy it (coupled with the recent unseasonably gross heat wave) inspired some ambitious drink-themed planning. The result was three pretty ridiculously delish drinks. (Also, I shoot with a white background, and I LOVE it. Madness!) So head on over to The Vanilla Bean Blog and check them out. Also, Sarah will be taking a little break this summer, so be on the lookout for lots of other awesome guest posts!

Happy Summer of Fun to Sarah and her family!

Rewind

ramps

Hey guys! I totally meant to get this post up over the weekend, but I wound up with a super-full docket on Saturday between gallivanting around the first summer market, making you all a rockin’ pizza (with ramps, oh yeah), snapping some photos of J’s band in the afternoon, then heading down to NY to visit my parents. To all the mothers out there, and to my mom most especially — Happy Mother’s Day! Being around my mom this weekend as she proudly showed off her giant gardens she planted this past week, it’s hard to believe that only four months ago she was lying in a hospital bed recovering from a mastectomy. I love you, mom, and I am so not surprised that you’re totally kicking stupid cancer’s ass.
