I can count on my brother to ship the most delicious garlic. He grows it in Okanogan, Washington and sends it to me in Pittsburgh. So fresh and aromatic when roasted, sautéed, baked, minced, smashed, rubbed- you name it! Thanks David. ❤️
The season of summer fruit.
Our Mom used to sprinkle salt on a slice.
An unexpected surprise delivered to my house. A box arrived containing a baker’s dozen of Georgia peaches from dear friends. Thank you Kristin and Rick. They not only do they look gorgeous but are the sweetest, juiciest peaches, ever. Laura had just told me on the phone, they were getting a box of peaches delivered to their Columbus Ohio home this Saturday. And then these arrived for me. ❤️
I got a text that my friend saying she was in the driveway. She’d brought a bag of homegrown lettuce from her garden. I sat on the side porch stoop, she stayed in her car. We talked a bit. Thanks for the delicious lettuce, Joan. You wrapped it so carefully in the wet towels. It was crispy and refreshing. Summer.
My sister told me about this Baker’s Edge Brownie Pan so I ordered one for Anna. (and the family)
Anna was headed to work today and said when she got home at ten, it would nice to have a brownie.
Maura made a batch and I got to see the pan do what it claims to do. And it does it perfectly. All edges!
Which is your preference? Edge? Center? Or Pass?
This French pepper mill was a 1974 wedding gift from my sister’s friend, Janet. It works perfectly. I added a variety of peppercorns my friend Joanne sent to me.
Freshly ground pepper, yes or no?
If yes, on what?
