Weekend Reading (abridged)

Happy August!

We just returned from a wonderful mini-vacation on the Maine coast where we camped on the beach, feasted on lobster and played in the ocean until sundown. I took a break from my online work and play, and thus my Google Reader got rather out of control and hit four digits! So, this weekend reading edition will be brief, as I haven’t yet caught up  with my blog and favorite sites.

However, I did want to take this opportunity to point you in the direction of an online tour of my kitchen…

I was thrilled to be recently featured on the Cafe Mom food blog, The Stir, last week. The lovely Kim Conte interviewed me and we chatted about my family, cooking, blogging and Simple Bites.

Included in the feature is a full photo tour of my kitchen, so you can see where all the action takes place and where I spend most of my time. Of course I threw in some family shots and plenty of food photos to make you hungry, too!

Head HERE for the full interview on The Stir and a tour of my kitchen!

Enjoy the week ahead, everyone!

  1. Where did you get the platter that you have your olive oil, salt and pepper on?

    • Krissa, it was a wedding present from my sister. It says “Give us this day our daily bread”. I believe it is pewter and an antique; I wouldn’t know where to find a duplicate, sorry!

  2. I hope you had fun visiting ‘my neck of the woods’ as they say! I live in Maine (grew up on the coast) and I know how much fun can be had on vacation here! 🙂

  3. I loved your kitchen tour. 🙂 It is beautiful.
