  • Local friends-whatever your plans are for this evening, change them! Come join me instead at @rhubarbavl for their
  • 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.

  • 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!

What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! I’m loving all this fall crispness, aren’t you? I even bought a new pair of jeans, my first in 7 years! And some Land’s End wool sweaters I scored over the summer for crazy cheap (we’re talking 80-85% off) with birthday money (thanks Mom and Nanny!) have even gone into rotation. Good stuff.

Here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:

*NPR introduces me to the best music.
*Buttermilk has it’s day in the sun (but don’t call it a comeback, it’s been here for years!).
*Foraging restaurant in Chicago, I’ve got my sites on you (via Faryn).
*Win a trivet for your canner (it’s the last day to enter the giveaway!).
*Nutella! Stuffed! Brown Butter! Sea Salt! Chocolate! Chip! Cookies!  (via Joanna).
*Good Taste Gatherings is a great project.
*Women & Money looks like a great conference for local ladies.
*French apple cake (via Amanda).
*6 easy ways to boost your immune system this fall.
*Saving tomato seeds.
*10 green ways to get excited about autumn.

I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge today. I’m chatting about using honey to care for summer weary feet. Go give your tired, haggard dogs a little liquid R&R.

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
