Strawberry Muffins

5Ks are not my favorite.  I don’t know why I thought I wanted to run one on Sunday, but I went to sleep really nervous on Saturday night and was even more stressed about it when I woke up.  I tried to tell myself I could just run it […]

Strawberry Banana Bread (and a novel about my current job situation)

IMG_5051

Almost two years ago I put on my suit, drove north for a few hours to a city I’d never heard of, and interviewed for a teaching job. We were still living in San Luis Obispo at the time, and the school year would be starting in two weeks. […]

Whole wheat berry pancakes

This was the first thing I made in our NEW kitchen! I’m still trying to get used to the fact that we have plenty of cabinet space for all our stuff, and that Mike and I can both be in the kitchen at the same time without running into […]

Strawberry Pie

I could never name a favorite fruit; I love way too many kinds, but I am partial to strawberries, especially this time of year when I can buy 3 baskets for $6 at the farmers market.   I grew up in Oregon, where I’m convinced the best strawberries in […]
