Weekend Links & Photos

This week was split between kitchen days and office days, each as furiously busy as the next.

A few book tour dates are shaping up with several more to come, and those details are getting sorted out as time marches on toward my cookbook’s release day. It’s exciting and a little terrifying. It’s definitely happening.

Just a quick reminder to say that if you did pre-order Brown Eggs & Jam Jars (thanks!), you can take advantage of the Bonus Recipe Bundle that is my gift to you. It has these eight, all-new recipes and they are sure to become your new favourites.

Here’s what made me hungry around the web this week:

And here’s a glimpse of our January so far…

cream puffs

Cream puffs for Sunday dinner dessert. Made by friends, enjoyed by all.


Meyer lemon preserving madness. Most of these ideas have been executed.


Days home from school are for batch cooking meatballs with the boys. This beloved recipe is in my upcoming cookbook.


First games of shinny on the frozen pond.


Clara helping to bake brownies. “Just one more chocolate chip, Mama?”


Two soups for winter days: chicken vegetable and borscht.


Food blogging girls gone wild at a media event at Maison Boulud. Ohh la la.


January is for eating the preserves from the pantry: canned peaches with vanilla custard.

Have a beautiful Sunday, all!
