Yes, this recipe was another inspired find via Pinterest. When will the intervention be scheduled? No, really, I’m not that bad.

After 31 years of wanting an egg cup my mom sent me a pair of pretty purple porcelain ones last week. OK, so perhaps I’m exaggerating about the 31 years thing but it’s entirely possible that my Bread and Jam for Frances egg cup induced obsession began while I was still in utero. At the […]

It’s almost November and I can’t believe I’ve been in San Francisco for over 5 months.

Hated or adored the polarizing holiday of the year is almost upon us.

I’m feeling a little nostalgic this evening after arriving home to find a very sweet Thanksgiving card from my grandmother. I wont be with her for this holiday but I will see her in a few weeks at Christmas time. This means I’ll miss her annual roasting of an enormous turkey in the wood cook […]

This is one of my favorite photographs of my grandmother and I. Look! It’s my natural hair color. Amazing… Anyway, today is my grandmother’s birthday. Happy Birthday Gram!
