Chopped kale candied walnut salad

Balancing, developing, and layering flavors.  All very important skills to have when making delicious food and it isn’t discussed nearly enough.  I remember craving knowledge on this topic when making the switch from following other people’s recipes to making my own.  There just wasn’t as much out there as I thought the topic deserved.  Read More

It’s finally here!  It is officially that time of year where leaves change, the sun cools, people wear sweaters, and pumpkins are everywhere.  Also, pumpkins are in everything.  For me, it means that as I write this, all the doors and windows are open in my house, the sun is pouring in and the breeze is oh, so lovely.   Read More
