  • I've truly loved working on all 8 of the books I've done so far (7 in print, 1 coming out in 2016), but this new book, on creating a southern foods pantry, is so very personal as it closely mirrors the foods I grew up eating, but with a decidedly modern approach. Today @glennbenglish and I made Brown Butter & Bourbon Braised Cabbage (below) and Apple Butter and Cheddar Pork Chop Stacks (above). So many culinary ghosts of my childhood and youth came 'a calling with each delicious forkful.
  • Many times a day, I snuggle up to this sweet boy and ask
  • I can see for miles and miles and miles. || Hope your Sunday is full of lovely views and relaxation!
  • Excellent cloud day today in the mountains of NC!
  • He's all about that tree. And so am I. ???
  • My friends write books, too! New post up over on small measure about four cookbooks recently published by friends of mine (tap the screen for tags of authors, photographers, and affiliates). These are mighty tasty reads, friends!!!
  • What you call pancakes, I call research and development. Work today included creating, and then inhaling with abandon, these Buttermilk Cornmeal Pancakes (served alongside sorghum-maple syrup). #wwllt #pancakes #f52grams #food52grams #southernfood #comfortfood
  • #tbt to what might possibly be my favorite photo of Huxley ever. This was from 1 1/2 years ago, when @glennbenglish posed our little honey bear (then 3 years old) with a bit of honey from our hives.
  • The fact that this vista can be accessed simply by walking out our back door, heading into the woods surrounding our home, and heading to the top of a mountain range is something I don't take for granted. The underlying reason for all of the work I do is to inspire myself and others to better steward this verdant planet. That's my drive, my cause, my mission, my mantra.
  • The long and winding road, that leads to my door. || So much green and blue in the cove today!
  • There was a time I used to say we should rename our property
  • Our house, in the middle of the woods.

Weekend Eats: Tortilla Espanola

We munched on this olive, tomato and potato bit of deliciousness just a bit ago. Hubs sliced the potatoes on a mandoline first, then lightly pan fried them in olive oil. Next went a bit of whisked eggs over the potatoes. We let those eggs set up a bit over medium-high heat, then added the remaining bit in the mixing bowl, along with the olives. The whole concoction then spent a wee bit of time in the oven under a low broiler, was cut into wedges, and then covered in chopped tomatoes.

Simple, fresh, delicious. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start a Sunday. Hope your weekend is going swimmingly.

    That looks delish! I made up a fresh batch of your blueberry lemonade from Taproot today. It was so refreshing and yummy. Thanks!

    We love making tortilla(more my job) and one of our girls will eat it. My wife was born in Naples so we normmaly make frittatas, our daughter that eats the torrilla will almost devour a frittata by herself. It is also a great way to get veggies in their diet without them thinking about it.
