  • Great burger and transcendent frites with a charred onion aioli at @kingjamesavl. Great vibe and an exceptional waitstaff, which deftly caught that Huxley was nearing meltdown mode, and saved the day with a lightening fast, perfect grilled cheese. Wonderful seeing Steven Goff and @samlg87!
  • Livin' in an Appalachian paradise. ??(view of Mt. Pisgah, from the top of our road).
  • The finale at last night's Sunday Supper @rhubarbavl was this Chocolate Coffee Tart with Vanilla Orange Marmalade from my book
  • What a surreal experience last night @rhubarbavl, being served your own recipes! Shown here: Chimichurri Deviled Eggs (
  • So much delicious decadence on display yesterday afternoon at my 7th Annual Ladies Cookie Exchange. Thanks to all you lovelies (and your littles!) that made it out! Such a wonderful community of women I'm surrounded by. We three Englishes won't have to bake any more this holiday season! *That's your girl waiting patiently for the sugar frenzy to begin, @littlecoffeebeans !
  • Put this down as a night to remember. Immeasurable gratitude to @rhubarbavl for hosting recipes from all 7 of my books at tonight's Sunday Supper. @glennbenglish couldn't have been more thrilled. Our favorite restaurant in Asheville now feels even more like our dining room away from home.
  • Asheville and vicinity friends, I want to let you in on a secret. @oldworldlevain is a baked goods goddess, a fascinating woman (she bakes AND teaches tango lessons!), and simply a lovely human being. This medley of deliciousness is a mere sampling of the tastiness she had on offer today at her pop-up inside of Wood & Spoon in west Asheville. You can order regularly from her though, and you should. Her goods are creative, imminently flavorful, and clearly lovingly made. Obviously, I am smitten.
  • All kinds of magic percolating up in here.
  • Last night this sweet, tiny elf wanted me to pick him up, and then asked
  • Only a few seats remain for the Sunday Supper @rhubarbavl on the 14th featuring recipes from all 7 of my books. The large dining room is nearly sold out, woohoo!!! Call 828/785-1503 to reserve a spot before they're all gone. I'd love to see you there!
  • So you see, love, actually, is all around us. A pleasant discovery whilst stoking this morning's fire. Happy Friday, friends!
  • Whoa! The menu for the Sunday Supper @rhubarbavl this Sunday, December 14, has been posted. Every dish listed comes from one of my 7 books. So, so cool! All that food, sure to be delicious, for $26 adults/$13 children. Such a great price! The restaurant has opened up their large, main dining room for the event, and there are still some seats remaining. Dinner is at 6:30. Let's fill the place up!!! Contact @rhubarbavl to make a reservation. I'd love to see you, if you can make it out!!!

“Home Grown” Love

Issue No. 6 Trailer from Anthology Magazine on Vimeo.

Our little homestead is featured in the new issue of Anthology magazine! Editor Anh-Minh Le writes so beautifully about our place and what we’re up to out here in her piece titled Home Grown. I’m so excited by this, as I just adore the publication. Photographer Jen Siska visited us this past October for a fun-filled afternoon of photo-taking. I’m super pleased with what she came up with.

Anthology is available domestically and internationally at these fine retailers, as well as online at Anthropologie and at West Elm stores. Check it out. You’ll be so glad you did!

  • What an adorable video! And even better — I have the issue sitting on my coffee table right now! I picked it up yesterday but hadn't had the chance to open it yet. I'm going to get to that straightaways.

    That's fantastic, Ashley. I've been meaning to tell you how I've been noticing your books everywhere I go lately, including on a table in a coffeeshop in the mountains of northern Georgia. You are everywhere!

    Congrats and I'm looking forward to reading this article.

    Ashley! Congrats on the Anthology feature! We have a tiny lil feature in an upcoming issue (maybe the same one?!) AND I didn't realize you're the one that made all those lovely books I see around town. We moved here to Asheville from Vermont last year and way into it. Hope to cross paths soon!
