Food Books: A Holiday Wishlist

I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about and planning food dishes and/or events where good food and drink will be consumed. To accompany Booklist’s Editors’ Choice for 2016, I felt there should be a mention of the books that delved into the delectable bites and intoxicating spirits in 2016. Bourbon: The Rise, Fall, and […]

Summer Reading List: I Am What I Eat

Summer Reading List: I Am What I Eat

The cold-weather holidays get a lot of credit for being the most special eating days of the year, but I think when it comes to food, summer’s where it’s at. Suddenly, we have rare hours of sunlight after our evening commutes—what better way to use them than by leisurely sipping and dining in parks or […]

Webcomics Wednesday: Sarah Becan’s I Think You’re Sauceome

Webcomics Wednesday: Sarah Becan’s I Think You’re Sauceome

I picked the feature image for today’s Webcomics Wednesday very intentionally. Did you notice the chanterelle mushrooms in the top left corner? Those golden beauties are close to my heart. My parents live in a very remote part of Washington, which can be kind of a drag, except for one thing: the glorious food! They […]

Cheers for a Dozen Ears by Felicia Sanzari Chernesky

Cheers for a Dozen Ears by Felicia Sanzari Chernesky

Cindy: What a perfect title for this book. When our farmer’s market finally opens, I will be cheering! Cheers for a Dozen Ears: A Summer Crop of Counting (Albert Whitman 2014) is the perfect tonic for we who are weary of winter…children included. In fact, I have to disagree with the final line from the Booklist […]

Sophie's Squash by Pat Zietlow Miller

Sophie's Squash by Pat Zietlow Miller

Lynn:  My husband wonders why I was laughing hysterically at the farmer’s market this morning but it is all the fault of Pat Zietlow Miller and Sophie’s Squash (Random/Schwartz & Wade 2013)!  Talk about a fall classic in the making! Sophie and her parents go to market where Sophie picks out a lovely winter squash.  […]

Relish by Lucy Knisley

Relish by Lucy Knisley

Cindy: I’ve just finished a major kitchen remodel project and it seems that during this time my literary tastes leaned toward books that featured FOOD. I was eating lots of salads and crock pot meals in real life, but in my book world, I was a gourmand. Relish: My Life in the Kitchen (First Second […]
