Used my birthday present last night, the grill pizza stone pictured. The bubbly cheese is an unaged pecorino that was amazing, melty sheep's milk cheese yay! Also if you're near NOVA check out Cheesetique which is where I got it. And now, LINKS!Read More
All of the beautifully colored produce is coming in season now and it is wonderful. It helps heal the sting that so many of the link this time around feature places I badly want to travel to.
I've been doing a lot of writing this week. Just finished this blog post about helping a fellow FredParent blogger figure out how to plan and shop for her family now that they have moved to a vegan and gluten-free diet. AND I'm super excited about the second installment of my "beat the heat" series tackling cooking oven-free during these dog days of summer. Spoiler: it was inspired, oddly, by some consumer reports type research I was doing last night.Read More

Apologies for the links being late; I was volunteering at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival all day yesterday. If you are looking for some Pisco, lots of dancing and to watch as a bridge is made of straw I highly recommend making the trip up to DC.Read More
When I was trying to decide what to make for dinner at the store this afternoon I was torn between the bright, fresh flavors I associate with June and comfort food because after three days it feels like weeks since I've seen the sun.

Whether you are eating summery foods or comfort foods or haven't given dinner a single thought yet at all, I think you will find this week's links satisfying.Read More
Lots of links today. So I will simply leave you to it dear reader.
Also, pork belly as art.
