Yeasted Cranberry-Pecan Pumpkin Loaves

“The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight…” -M.F.K. Fisher in The Art of Eating But what about the sound of good bread making? Yes, the sound, at least when it comes to these yeasted cranberry-pecan …

Strawberry Preserves

Earlier this month in Nashville, the rains came down, the floods came up, and a building floated down the interstate. We were lucky and escaped with only a wet basement. However, many more were not so fortunate, including “our” farmers, the Delvins, who lost 70% of their crops, including about …

Grapefruit Brulee

Strawberry Preserves

Make these. Quick! Strawberry season is almost over. Come winter when you open your pantry looking for inspiration for breakfast or “breakfast for dinner” (my fave!), you’ll be glad you did. *Note: After attending a canning class last Saturday at our local Ag Expo where I missed the hallway for …
