An Announcement + All the Thoughts on Growing a Human thumbnail

I've been keeping a little secret the past few months, and I'm about ready to bust! I'm so happy to finally be able to let you all in on the very best news. We are expecting a baby! We are thrilled, terrified, excited, anxious, and overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. I've been itching to talk [...]

What Healing Looks Like: My Experience with Miscarriage

This post is completely outside the realm of the norm here at Neighborfood. It has been languishing in my drafts file for weeks, waiting until I get the guts to hit publish. As much as I love sharing all of my happy foodie experiences with you all, I also want this to be a space [...]

Supremely tender and fluffy Garlic Cheddar Swirled Brioche Rolls made the 10 minute, no knead way! It seems I have a moment with every experimental recipe when I'm positive things won't work out. For this bread, it happened almost immediately. This brioche recipe comes from the totally genius Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day [...]

This classic recipe delivers a subtly sweet, cinnamony Custard Pie. It's my mom's specialty and it simply wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it. For today's #SundaySupper, my friends and I are celebrating Thanksgiving just like you do--by gathering around the table, giving thanks, and sharing great food. I'll admit, this season hasn't been the easiest for [...]

Fluffy cinnamon spiced apple pancakes stacked high with pecans, bacon, and sweet cider syrup. I know things have been a little quiet around here this week. I didn't really plan on disappearing from the interwebs for five days, but sometimes life happens. Or, more accurately, sometimes life slaps you in the face, sets your butt [...]

On Cooking and Courage

Today I'm super excited to be guest posting over at Everyday Liturgy, a blog which seeks to incorporate faith and spirituality into the nitty gritty of our everyday lives. Here's the beginning of my post: I have never considered myself a cook. I came to the kitchen through cookies and pies, measuring cups and pastry [...]

Cheesy Jalapeno Bread

Baking bread is an exercise in faith. It’s mystery and miracle and mess all wrapped in one yeasted loaf. I’m a reluctant bread baker. I come to the process a skeptic. Even as I watch yeast send frothy bubbles to the surface of warm water, I wonder, will this actually work? And as dough works [...]

On Staying, for better or worse

Image courtesy of Mihai Tamasila If anything characterized the first 6 years of my adult life it was change. Movement was a rhythm of sorts, as sure as the changing seasons. Each fall and summer of my college days, I would pack my little Honda Accord so full of stuff I couldn’t see out the [...]

Why I’m thankful for dirty, messy Christmas

I've been doing all I'm supposed to do to get ready for the holiday season this year. I've been buying gifts, cleaning house, stringing lights, listening to Christmas music. But somehow I've felt disconnected, removed from the glimmer and cheer of the season. Maybe it's because I see so many people struggling just to put [...]
