Sharing the Kishu Mandarins

These orange jewels you see in the photo above are kishu mandarins. David Karp calls them the mighty mandarin “the most delicious of mandarins”. They’re small, seedless, easy to peel and sweet. We call them citrus candy and you can’t just eat one. Because they’re so addicting, delicious and often hard to find, we decided […]

What do you NOT like to eat?

What do you NOT like to eat?

An interesting conversation came up on our Facebook page the other day about foods kids like to eat. We asked parents what their minions like to eat because we’re planning some kiddie menus for an upcoming project. We’re kid-less, well at least with the two legged kind. We do have two of those four-legged kids […]

It’s amazing what can happen in a garden over a few summer days. Last week we headed up to Park City, UT for the amazing Evo Conference. It was great seeing friends, face meeting twitter buddies, and having the chance to share what we love as speakers in two different photography workshop sessions. The ladies […]

Welcome Summer. Share your favorite tomato recipes?

Welcome Summer. Share your favorite tomato recipes?

The tomatoes in the garden just reminded us that Summer has arrived. It was as if, all of a sudden, the transition of Spring to Summer jolted the tomatoes to wake up and ripen. Now, the challenge is keeping up with eating and canning the tomatoes before they fall off the vine. Yes, it’s a […]

Yes, the photographs are proof….we can finally grow raspberries. Unless you’re a huge lover of raspberries, or a Southern California gardener who has struggled […]

Fizzy Blueberry Meyer Lemonade

Fizzy Blueberry Meyer Lemonade

I’m a berry boy. I love my berries. Unfortunately, Southern California doesn’t so much, or at least so I thought. Strawberries being the huge exception (they are amazing down here), I always thought that growing berries in our garden would be  a futile task. I’m talking blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries. They were so easy […]

Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins – Dedicated to Dante

Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins – Dedicated to Dante

It’s hard to not think of Dante when I look at the strawberry patch. The ruby red berries are still dangling from their lengthy stems, begging to be plucked. Normally this is the time of year Dante and Sierra both would scour every inch of the patch for sweet berries. And this was the time […]

Garden at Dusk & garden recipes

Garden at Dusk & garden recipes

  The late afternoon hours were always the pups playtime. Even in Dante’s grey muzzled years, after the full warmth of the day had past and the air began to soften, Dante and Sierra would become puppies again. Playing tug-o-war. Chasing each other around with the randomness only the youth possess. If you dared to […]

In Transition Meal: Tomatoes, Figs & Salute to Summer

In Transition Meal: Tomatoes, Figs & Salute to Summer

I’m not going to allow September to leave me so quickly. August slipped through my hands like a silent kiss in the night and before I knew it, everyone was bidding Summer adieu. Admist our hectic August calendar and new studio build out, my wandering brain didn’t fully register that we touched into September. Waking […]

Seasonally simple garden Heirloom tomatoes. Celebrating Summer’s arrival.

Seasonally simple garden Heirloom tomatoes. Celebrating Summer’s arrival.

This consistently cool weather had us apprehensive, particularly as heirloom tomato gardeners. With almost 20 heirloom tomatoes plants that we’ve been nurturing over the last few months, all we were hoping for was some hot sun to get these plants to bolt out with tomatoes. Unfortunately there hasn’t been much of the sun!

Chopped Salad w/Blue Cheese Dressing – My Nepenthe

We’re half way through April 2011. How did that happen? Are we the only ones feeling like we should still be in February? From the sound of all the snow falling throughout the cold regions of the country, we certainly should be in February! Obviously we’ve been hammered with work and we’re definitely not complaining.

Fried Minted Artichokes – A new addition to the Spring garden

Fried Minted Artichokes – A new addition to the Spring garden

Every spring, Diane and I go through the annual “What veggies are we going to plant?” ritual. First the weather starts to warm and we begin to crave more than leafy greens, sugar snap peas, radishes, and carrots.  We’ll hit Home Depot and nearly buy a bunch of boring varieties which we don’t really want […]

Homemade Kumquat Marmalade with Brie Cheese and Blue Chair Jam Cookbook Giveaway

I don’t like brie cheese. It’s boring. There. I said it, I meant it, and I’m ok with you despising me for it. But before you send off that nasty email, I must clarify, I’m not talking about the real deal, raw milk, wheels of wonder that are true Brie cheeses.  Cheeses from milk so […]
